President Joe Biden’s administration will name Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman as the man who approved the 2018 killing of Jamal Khashoggi when it releases an intelligence report on the journalist’s murder.
Four U.S. officials told Reuters the forthcoming declassified U.S. intelligence report – to which the CIA was the main contributor – assesses that the crown prince approved and likely ordered the murder of Khashoggi.
Biden plans to call the king of Saudi Arabia ahead of the public release of the report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence – which could come out as soon as Thursday.
