Blumenthal Statement on U.S. Intelligence Report Confirming the Role of Saudi Crown Prince in the Murder of Jamal Khashoggi

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement after the Biden Administration finally released an unclassified intelligence report confirming Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s (MBS) integral role in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi:

“Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman cannot be allowed to get away with monstrous murder. This new report adds to a mounting pile of evidence that the Crown Prince is culpable for Jamal Khashoggi’s killing and its cover-up,” Blumenthal said.

“We can no longer look away: MBS and others must be held accountable. A reset in U.S.-Saudi relationship is urgently needed – no more business as usual.”
