Earlier this month Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi Arabian embassy in Turkey and was never seen nor heard from again. Though the specifics of what happened are not yet entirely clear, it is looking very likely that Khashoggi was murdered over his criticism of the Saudi royal family.
This has enraged Americans who are calling on the Trump administration to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for this heinous crime. However, President Trump has been unwilling to condemn Saudi Arabia and maintains his support of the nation's de facto leader, Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.
Trump himself has long boasted about both his business and personal ties to the Saudi government. His son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner has, since at least 2017, been in close contact with Bin Salman, communicating with him off the books via encrypted chat app WhatsApp and has had closed door meetings with him.
It is difficult to not see that there is likely some sort of illegal influence being exerted by the Saudis over President Trump, his administration and his family.
As such, it is the responsibility of the U.S. Justice Department to investigate and ensure that no illegal conflict of interest exists between the Saudis and the Trump administration and that Jared Kushner did not compromise national security!
