#JamalKhashoggi's murder reminded us how authoritarians fear a free press.

It exposed the danger of having a U.S. President regularly demonize the media, & laid bare the fragility of our system & how much it relies on the people in power to respect it.
Khashoggi’s murder will be remembered as the straw that broke the camel’s back—a grim reminder that Saudi behavior has strayed so far out of line with our own values that business as usual with the kingdom was no longer in our interests.

As the rest of the free world sought answers about Jamal Khashoggi’s death, Trump betrayed the moral leadership we expect from a U.S. president…

...all to help the Saudis cover up a murder.

Good morning!

Per Congressional request, President Trump’s admin has until *today* to report on Saudi Crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman’s role in Jamal #khashoggi’s killing.

Today, we will see if Trump will let Saudi Arabia get away with murdering a @washingtonpost writer.
The CIA determined in November that MBS ordered #khashoggi’s murder.

Last night, the New York Times reported that intercepted communications revealed that the Saudi Crown prince wanted to “use a bullet” on Jamal as early as 2017.…
Our country has convicted people of murder on much less evidence than what we have on Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. #khashoggi

For those who have been following Jamal #Khashoggi's case--

Back in October, senators triggered the process for possible sanctions on Mohammed Bin Salman. They gave the Trump admin 120 days to respond re: MBS's role.

Trump admin has not responded.

The deadline is tomorrow.
More background on the possible Magnitsky sanctions for MBS: #khashoggi:
If the Trump admin helps Mohammed bin Salman evade consideration for sanctions, it will only enable MBS’ brutality.

After murdering Saudi Arabia’s most prominent journo and a @washingtonpost writer, what would stop MBS from murdering other members of the US press? #khashoggi

*Deep breaths*

It’s easy to get lost in the grief and outrage over Trump siding Saudi regime that thinks nothing of butchering peaceful journalists in consulates.

But hope is not all lost. Congress must act, and the American people can still help.

Here’s a thread #Khashoggi
1. Trump has basically chosen to ignore the CIA’s “high confidence” conclusion that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered #Khashoggi’s murder.

As @ThePlumLineGS and @paulwaldman1 note, Dem oversight can help flesh out the CIA’s conclusions

On my way home from Yemen with one, clear message: to save lives, stop fueling the war. Congress needs to do that now.

In case you missed it, Yemen is on the brink of a famine the likes of which none of us have ever witnessed. There’s no drought, typhoon, or earthquake causing this crisis – just naked lust for power.
Yemenis are determined to help each other through it. Every poor or displaced person in Yemen is only alive today thanks to the generosity and decency of her neighbors.

#SaudiArabia has committed numerous human rights violations. The murder of #JamalKhashoggi is by no means the only reason why the West should consider their relationship and in particular should #StopArmingSaudi #JusticeForJamal
On 17 June 2012 @raif_badawi was arrested on the charge of “insulting Islam through electronic channels”. He had a liberal discussion forum in Saudi Arabia. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison, 1000 lashes & a fine. On 9 January 2015 he received the first 50 lashes. #FreeRaif
.@raif_badawi is still in prison in #SaudiArabia. His wife @miss9afi and his children live in Canada and are Canadian citizens. The family has not seen Raif for more than 6 years. @miss9afi campaigns tirelessly for his release. #FreeRaif #RoyalPardon4Raif…

Trump made a catastrophic mistake in embracing another dictator, and all he can do is repeat the lies that got us here. Yes, he’s lying about his financial interests. But it’s his “FAKE NEWS” lie—his hatred for the press—that put a target on WaPo journalist Khashoggi’s back.
.@brianklaas: Saudis made a strategic calculation—based on Trump’s dictator worship, hate for the press & his financial interests— that Khashoggi murder was no BFD.

Looks spot on: Trump floats “rogue killers” disinfo. Pompeo flies to SA, thx King for “thorough investigation”🤔
Trump & Pompeo seem to be complicit in Saudi campaign to coverup Khashoggi’s murder—one of the most heinous crimes in recent memory. We hear the right words like “Punish” & “thorough investigation,” but they’re empty of their meaning. We saw this tactic in sham Kavanaugh probe.
