Trump calls CIA assessment of Khashoggi murder premature but possible

WASHINGTON/MALIBU, California (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Saturday called a CIA assessment blaming Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi “very premature” and said he will receive a complete report on the case on Tuesday.

Trump, on a trip to California, said the killing “should never have happened.” The report on Tuesday will explain who the U.S. government believes killed Khashoggi and what the overall impact of his murder is, Trump said. It was unclear who is producing the report.

Trump also said the CIA finding that bin Salman was responsible for the killing was “possible.”

Trump made the remarks hours after the State Department said the government was still working on determining responsibility for the death of Khashoggi, a U.S.-based Washington Post columnist.

1. I heard on MSNBC this morning that the latest Turk release of tape, has voice at the scene

referring directly to MSB [our King Sawed, can't let that go]. traitortrump must know that, and, given 'possible' trump family indebtedness to the Saudi's - trump has problems there.

4. Ooooh

'King Sawed' has drawn some surprisingly deep reactions in casual conversations, where I've dropped it.

2. Why does the president of the united states so actively...

defend so many of the terrible people of the world? But yet bashes his fellow Americans on a daily basis?
