Reaction Of Senator Patrick Leahy To The Saudi Account Of The Death Of Jamal Khashoggi

If ever a story reeked of a coverup, it is this one.  It has been unraveling since it began.    

It’s taken nearly three weeks for the Saudis to even admit that an American resident and journalist died in the Saudis’ own consulate.  And throughout this ordeal, the only urgency apparent in our President’s handling of this crisis has been a compulsion to buy time for the Saudis to construct a story to protect the royal family.  

The American people need and deserve to know what the White House and our intelligence professionals know.  Our country must not be complicit in this coverup.
