Top Republicans in the United States are attacking Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman for ordering the murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in the Turkish city of Istanbul in October.
“I think Prince Mohammed gave the order, or at least he knew about it, to butcher Khashoggi. Prince Mohammed … he really was the original El Chapo, literally,” said Louisiana Senator John Kennedy on Tuesday as US President Donald Trump was under pressure for maintaining support for the murderous prince.
Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán is the former Sinaloa Cartel leader facing trial in New York City.
Jamal Khashoggi was reportedly tortured, murdered and then dismembered via a bone saw by Saudi operatives at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.
