GOP Rep. Chris Stewart (UT) shrugs of Jamal Khashoggi’s murder saying “journalists disappear all over the country.” This is how democracies die…..
Stewart told CNN’s Brianna Keilar: “Journalists disappear all over the country. Twenty have been killed in Mexico. You don’t think it happens in Turkey and China? Of course it does.”
This comes as a bipartisan group of senators was briefed on by CIA director Gena Haspel on Capitol Hill. Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) said it would take jurors 30 minutes to unanimously convict Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Jamal Khashoggi’s murder.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) also said the evidence was overwhelming that bin Salman ordered to murder. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) is calling for a CIA briefing of all members of the Senate.
Donald Trump has been defending MBS saying that “maybe he did or maybe he didn’t” order Jamal Khashoggi’s murder but the relationship with Saudi Arabia means more.
