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
There’s a lot happening. Its easy to get exhausted.

It’s easy to get cynical and allow ourselves to watch quietly while the president tries to let a foreign power literally get away with murdering a member of the US press.

As Americans, we cannot allow this to happen.
The president has said that Saudi Arabia buys a lot of weapons from us, therefore we must overlook #khashoggi’s murder.

The president is spreading lies.

1) ABC reported that Jared Kushner was the one pushing to inflate the value of those arms sales abcnews.go.com/amp/Politics/k…
2) CNN reported last week that yeah, all those weapons that Trump has been bragging about selling the Saudis and the Emiratis?

The Saudis have been transferring weapons to Al-Qaeda- linked militias. cnn.com/interactive/20…

A clear violation of US arms deal rules.
Congress needs to push for sanctions on Mohammed bin Salman for the murder of Jamal #Khashoggi, targeting other Saudis abroad, orchestrating the devastation of Yemen, and overseeing the torture of women reformers.

And— We need to halt arms sales to Saudi Arabia.
If Trump admin blatantly ignores today’s deadline on responding to possible sanctions on Mohammed Bin Salman—

Then we must thoroughly investigate Trump and Kushner’s financial and other ties to MBS.

Remember, MBS once reportedly bragged about having Kushner “in his pocket.”
Remember also that Jared Kushner was advising Mohammed Bin Salman on how to “weather the storm” after the prince had #khashoggi, a member of the American press, killed.

Let that treachery sink in.

The whole world is watching @realDonaldTrump, @SecPompeo to see if Saudi blood money is really worth more than the murder of innocent US-based journalists, the torture of women and the starvation of Yemenis.

If they fail, Congress must step up.
Thanks for coming to my #ThrEaDTalk.

Happy Friday, and let’s not stop fighting for #JusticeForJamal #khashoggi
