Pompeo Down Plays CIA Assessment Of Killing Of Khashoggi

According to Reuters, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo defended the Trump administration’s handling of the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi on Wednesday, stressing Saudi Arabia’s importance as a U.S. ally against Iran.

Pompeo repeated his assertion that there was no direct evidence linking Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to the Oct.

2 murder of Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, despite a CIA assessment it was likely he ordered the killing.

CIA Director Gina Haspel was due to brief leaders of the House of Representatives behind closed doors on Wednesday about the killing.

She has already briefed some U.S. senators.
