The CIA concluded Saudi’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was involved in ordering the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, but that intelligence isn’t enough for Donald Trump. He issued a statement on Tuesday saying he was standing by the Saudis, rationalizing, “It could very well be that the crown prince had knowledge of this tragic event – maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!”
