CNN Host Confronts Psaki on Biden Giving Saudi Prince a Pass on Khashoggi Murder
CNNCNN host Dana Bash repeatedly pressed White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Sunday morning over President Joe Biden apparently shirking his promise to hold Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) accountable for his role in the brutal murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.Following the release of a declassified intelligence report on Khashoggi’s death that determined MBS directly approved the killing of the journalist, Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced visa restrictions impacting 76 Saudis who have harassed and attacked journalists and activists. The Biden administration, however, issued no actions or sanctions against the crown prince.According to CNN, administration officials said that sanctioning MBS “was never really an option” because any punishment of the crown prince would have been “too complicated” and “could have jeopardized U.S. military interests in Saudi Arabia.”Read more at The Daily Beast.
