US state Dept doc: Khashoggi stripped of speech rights after criticizing Trump

https://www.businessinsider.com/why-jamal-khashoggi-left-saudi-arabia-writing-ban-2018-10

This is revolting and despicable: Trump seeks the death penalty for the innocent Central Park teens, but covers up responsibility for the grisly torture murder of a Washington Post journalist who was banned.from speech in Saudi Arabia for criticizing then President-elect Trump.

1. Who wanted the journalist silenced the most?

The fucking moron or the Saudis? Who initiated the idea of silencing him?

3. Probably the Crown Prince MBS

It's not likely that Cheeto ever knew what Khashoggi wrote about him, so why would he care?

But Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) had just became the Royal Crown Prince barely a year ago. He was probably trying to curry favor with Cheeto by shutting off the criticism from Saudi journalists. It's what led to Khashoggi moving to the US and writing for WaPo.

4. Needs investigation, but REGARDLESS

Now that Trump knows Khashoggi is a critic of his who was stripped of free speech rights as a result, Trump.can not maintain the posture he has right now -- of delay, minimize and cover up.

5. To curry favor with the Cheeto by slaughtering someone is a sick, sick statement about

 

the Cheeto. But, I do believe this to be true. And it's part of the new, dark times we are in with this manboy. This has got to change before it's too late.

6. Nobody with a column at WaPo criticizing Saudi friends is on Trump radar (sarcasm)

And Khashoggi probably isn't on Trump's calendar either, theredore nothing happened. (Sarcasm alert)

10. Cart before horse

Khashoggi would have never come here if MBS hadn't taken away his Saudi credentials.

11. Khashoggi's reason for coming here? CRITICIZING TRUMP.

Khashoggi thought he would find a free societt here that would back up his rights, and vindicate his death if meed be. Looks like he was wrong unless Trump pulls a true 180. But he won't.

Khashoggi biggest offense is not so much being a saudi dissident but a Teump basher. I would think all DUets could relate?

7. Jared gave his new pal Bin Salman a list of "enemies".

"Enemies" of tRump or enemies of the Saudi Prince? Maybe the moron specifically didn't know of the journalist's opinions of tRump, but Jared did.

9. Even B-Bart reported this enemies list to MBS on April 7, 2018

It was a presidential daily briefong.

In the same time frame, Crown Prince MBS also bragged that he had Jared "in his pocket"
