Jamal Khashoggi’s Editor Rips Trump Admin: ‘Trying to Cover Up MBS’s Bloody Mess’


Today brought two more developments in the Trump administration’s reaction to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. First, there was a report from The Guardian that CIA Director Gina Haspel is being prevented by the White House from briefing the Senate on his murder.

And second, during today’s White House press briefing, national security advisor John Bolton got testy when asked why he hasn’t listened to the tape. “Why do you think I should? What do you think I’ll learn from it?” he asked.

Washington Post global opinions editor Karen Attiah, who has been very vocal calling for answers after Khashoggi’s murder, called out the White House for helping a Saudi cover-up:
