    The U.N. report about Khashoggi's murder was released yesterday, and it said that "credible evidence" linked MBS to the crime.

    Turkey's foreign minister said on Wednesday his country strongly endorses the UN recommendations.

    The CIA and some Western countries reportedly believe bin Salman, also known as MBS, ordered the operation to kill Khashoggi, a critic of the crown prince's policies and Washington Post columnist

    However Trump does not give a shit and sells them "arms" without approval from Congress. I still don't understand how that is possible. Also I've not heard of any "lawsuit" or "veto" from Congress to stop this.

    Who's got more info about this continuous "crime" by the Trump family?

    Dutch:

    Trump is using another fake emergency to justify the arms sales to Saudi Arabia, even though both houses of Congress passed a resolution to end our support for the Saudi involvement in Yemen. Their action caused Trump to issue his second veto of his presidency.

    This morning, the United Kingdom's court of appeals declared that British arms sales to Saudi Arabia were unlawful. Although Teresa May has said that the government may appeal, very few people in the U.K. want to continue selling arms to the Saudis.

    Today, the Senate will be taking a series of votes expressing disapproval of Trump's decision on the arms sales.

    Senator Bob Menendez, a top Democrat leader on foreign affairs, and Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican and political ally of Trump, are leading the challenge to the Saudi arms sales. At least four Republicans have said they will join 47 Democrats to support the arms sale disapproval.

    The significance of the vote is that it shows continuing bipartisan political opposition within Congress to business as usual with Saudi Arabia, even as the Trump administration exercises favoritism towards the kingdom. Trump is likely to veto the measure and it is unclear if there would be enough Republican defections in Congress to overcome that.

    Senate Republicans, however, are preparing legislation to impose new parameters on the US-Saudi strategic relationship, including potential financial sanctions on persons involved in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

    I hope that all these things are going to be part of the impeachment process; I guess it is going to be an very long list,if hopefully the Dem's do their job.

    Things like this should not go on without being punished. Don't forget the Trump family gets "rich" from this via the "kickbacks"; human lives in Yemen don't count for them.

    Even after the U.N."s report of June 18, Trump does not plan to take any action. According to this morning's Washington Post, he declined to say whether he would hold Saudi Arabia's leaders responsible. He said it's in the United State's best interest to "take their money".

    The money, of course, will be a lot more than the 30 pieces of silver that changed hands about 2000 years ago, which was long before bone saws were invented.

    I'm totally amazed that all off this can take place ; is this the real "culture" of this country? I guess the "evangelicals" read only what they want to read in their "bible", but not what Judas did, let alone the ten commandments. Bring the barf bucket please.
