    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.

    Last Thursday, Trump talked to his "good friend" MBS about the possibility of Russia and Saudi Arabia cutting oil production by 10.000.000 barrels, which he said would be "Good (GREAT) news for everyone!"

    What?

    The only people that would be good news for are oil companies, who would see a rise in the price of oil due to reduction in output. The rest of us would see higher gasoline prices, and that definitely is NOT great news for everyone.

    On March 25, 2020, Turkey charged 20 people over the murder of Khasogghi. Included in that total are two aides to MBS. Arrests warrants have been issued to all 20, none of whom are currently in Turkey, and the trial would be conducted in absentia. Among them are intelligence operative Maher Mutreb, forensic expert Salah al-Tubaigy, and Fahad al-Balawi, a member of the Saudi royal guard.

    Trump statement comes approximately 18 month s since Khasogghi's murder in October of 2018.

    So far, Trump has refrained from criticizing Saudi Arabia because he does not want to jeopardize arms sales to the country.

    Saudi Arabia is currently the world's largest importer of arms. A total of 73 percent of Saudi Arabia’s arms imports came from the USA and 13 percent from the UK. The U.K suspended its sales last year after a Court of Appeal ruling that the selling of weapons for attacks in Yemen was unlawful.

    Saudi Arabia launched its war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing back to power the government of fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi and crushing the Ansarullah revolutionary movement.

    The US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project [ACLED], a nonprofit conflict-research organization, estimates that the Saudi war has claimed more than 100,000 lives since the war broke out.

    Indeed, "Trump has "blood" on his hands" as well his sweet son in law who arranged the "murder. But yeah, no one blinks here; will there ever be justice for these criminals as Trump?

    Kussner arranged the "murder" via Trump; The same with Epstein.

    Yes "voters" you invited a bunch of "crooks" and "murderers" into the W.H. Be proud of it.
