US Senator: Bin Salman ‘complicit’ in Khashoggi murder
Senator Lindsey Graham said the de facto ruler of the kingdom was surely responsible for the Saudi journalist’s death, Anadolu Agency reports.
“The crown prince, is a wrecking ball. I think he’s complicit in the murder of Khashoggi to the highest level possible,” Graham told reporters after an intelligence briefing by CIA Director Gina Haspel.
Senator Bob Corker, one of eight senators at the briefing, also told reporters he believed bin Salman was responsible for the murder.
“If he was in front of a jury he’d be convicted in 30 minutes, guilty,” said Corker.
Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, went missing after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2.
After initially saying he had left the consulate alive, weeks later the Saudi administration admitted he was killed there.
