Saudi students escaping US justice: Oregon's Ron Wyden alleges 'wide-ranging coverup' by feds

Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon on Friday called on the Trump administration to take immediate action after revelations that the U.S. government knew Saudi Arabian officials were spiriting criminal suspects out of the U.S. for more than a decade yet never intervened.

Wyden called it a “wide-ranging coverup” that has ranged over successive presidents.

“This has gone on through Republican and Democratic administrations, but it is up to the Trump administration to do something about it — today,” Wyden, Democrat, said in a statement. “Anything less amounts to a craven betrayal of Americans’ interests on behalf of a murderous, autocratic regime.

Wyden’s forceful remarks followed a story co-published by The Oregonian/OregonLive and ProPublica that showed how the FBI, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and other agencies have been aware of the Saudi actions since at least 2008.
