Saudi Crown Prince Told Ambassador To “Silence” Khashoggi

President Trump with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman

There was a stunning revelation today on MSNBC’s AM Joy show by University of Miami Visiting Professor and Foreign Policy Analyst Rula Jebreal that CIA Boss Gina Haspel told her counterparts in Turkey the U.S. has a recording of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman(MBS) telling his brother who is the Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. to “silence” Khashoggi.


This stunning revelation by Rula Jebreal, raises a lot of questions about President Trump’s continued defense of the Saudi Crown Prince because if CIA Boss Gina Haspel shared this information with her Turkish counterparts, Trump is also aware of this information. The question then becomes, why would Trump still go out of his way to defend MBS? Jebreal’s answer? “Follow the money.”

Rula Jebreal said on AM Joy show; “The President[Trump] said he[MBS] might have done it, maybe he didn’t do it. Actually we know for a fact that Gina Haspel the head of CIA told her counterparts in Turkey that they have a recording of Mohammed Bin Salman the Crown Prince telling his brother who is the Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. to get rid and to silence Jamal Khashoggi. We have evidence that MBS is behind the savage murder of Jamal Khashoggi. However the President decides and I think for clear reason…Why would Saudi Arabia be his first foreign trip after he bashed them during the election campaign? Why would he go out of his way to defend the Saudis? Because there’s money involved, follow the money, and that’s what we need to investigate.”

For the record, Trump’s financial entanglements with the Saudis is no secret and has been sufficiently reported on by the mainstream media. The question now is whether he is too compromised by his financial entanglements with the Saudis to the point where he is making foreign policy decisions that are against best interests of the U.S.

Trump’s financial ties to Saudi Arabia

Bottom line, House Democrats have their work cut out for them. They must get to the bottom of the Jamal Khashoggi scandal, not just for his grieving family’s sake, but also for the growing concerns well articulated by Rula Jebreal and others, that Trump’s financial entanglements with the Saudis may be behind his strange and patently un-American defense of the regime. Serious questions also remain regarding Trump’s son in law Jared Kushner’s ties to MBS specifically, whether he leaked classified information to MBS as was reported in some sections of the mainstream media. House Dems must also get to the bottom of Kushner’s ties to the Saudis.

Proof That Congressional Republicans Have Become A Criminal Enterprise


Ever since Trump became President, many have wondered why congressional Republicans have totally abdicated oversight functions that all their predecessors routinely conducted and Americans came to expect as the norm. The inaction as regards oversight by House Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority Leader McConnell’s congress has struck most Americans as very strange and has spawned many conspiracy theories, the most popular one being that Russian President Putin has “Kompromat” on all congressional Republicans.

President Trump with Congressional Republicans

Well, courtesy of a bombshell article by The Daily Intelligencer, we now find out that congressional Republicans have actually compiled a secret list of things they have vowed to block from any congressional oversight requested by Dems–a sad and totally unprecedented move by U.S. members of congress.


The list of items GOP has vowed to keep away from any congressional oversight includes “election security and hacking attempts”, ” White House security clearances”, “Trump’s Tax Returns”, ” Trump’s family businesses”, among many others. Think about that, we currently have GOP members of congress whose stated mission is to hide from the public any wrongdoing by Trump and his administration–the aforementioned criminal enterprise.

Bottom line Dems and the mainstream media must start calling out congressional Republicans for totally abdicating their oversight functions. Its about time people started calling Trump’s GOP what it truly is–a criminal enterprise. What House Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority Leader McConnell are presiding over in congress today goes way beyond what Americans would characterize as “politics as usual” and is borderline if not out and out criminal conduct.
