The CIA has hinted that it has a tape of top Saudi officials giving the order to kill Jamal Khashoggi. One of the officials involved is said to be Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.
Meanwhile, defense secretary James Mattis said yesterday that he does not think the CIA has fully identified those responsible for Khashoggi’s killing.
The revelations come on the heels of information indicating that Khashoggi did not have a US green card as previously reported.
It’s not looking good for the Crown Prince, but more proof is still needed. One thing is certain: the President’s argument that there is as of yet no definitive evidence as to whether the orders to kill Khashoggi came from the top remains true.
