US Senators Say ‘Zero Doubt’ Crown Prince Ordered Khashoggi’s Murder

Tuesday morning’s testimony by CIA Director Gina Haspel on the murder of Jamal Khashoggi has those senators permitted to attend more convinced than ever that the Saudi Crown Prince was behind the plot. Senators are now saying they have “zero doubt” that is indeed what happened.

In early October, reporter Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, and was never seen again. Saudi officials have confirmed that a 15-man kill team dispatched to the consulate killed him, though they have persistently denied that the crown prince was involved.

As Khashoggi was a permanent US resident, this murder is a matter of some import, and many in Congress want a clear rebuke of the Saudis for killing him. Haspel’s testimony was closed-door and classified, but those senators who spoke to reporters said she confirmed the suspicions.

That should be unsurprising, as the White House had previously forbade Haspel testifying to the Senate, and the CIA had an assessment that expressed “high confidence” the crown prince was directing the murder. This looms large over an upcoming Senate vote on US involvement in the Saudi War in Yemen, with many wanting to withdraw US support as part of a measure to rebuke them.
