Jared Kushner personally helping Saudi prince get away with murder
Jared Kushner is doing whatever he can to help Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman after the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.
Jared Kushner is taking Trump’s culture of corruption international as he works directly with the Saudi crown prince to cover up the brutal murder and dismemberment of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
According to the New York Times, “Mr. Kushner has offered the crown prince advice about how to weather the storm” following Khashoggi’s murder.
According to the report, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Kushner and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, also known as MBS, regularly talk and text each other, often on a first name basis. And in the face of overwhelming evidence that MBS was involved in Khashoggi’s murder, Kushner’s reaction was to side with the murderer, not the American brutally killed.
“Inside the White House, Mr. Kushner has continued to argue that the president needs to stand by Prince Mohammed because he remains essential to the administration’s broader Middle East strategy, according to people familiar with the deliberations,” reports the Times.
Trump himself has worked to deceive the American people about the murderous role of MBS. Even though U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded MBS was involved, Trump continues to say, “maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!” By all appearances, Trump has signaled he’s willing to turn a blind eye to the pre-meditated murder of journalists so long as Saudi Arabia continues to provide the United States with cheap oil.
The facts surrounding MBS’s involvement in Khashoggi’s murder are so overwhelming that even Trump’s lapdog allies in the Senate have been forced to admit it.
“It is zero chance — zero — that this happened without the crown prince,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told reporters last week, adding that one would have to be “willfully blind” not to see that.
Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) went so far as to say that if MBS was in front of a jury, “he would have a unanimous verdict in about 30 minutes.”
“Guilty, “Corker added. “A guilty verdict.”
Sadly, Trump and Kushner are content to work in the shadows rather than address the reality of this heinous crime, even if everyone else knows the truth.
