CIA Director Haspel to Brief Top Senators on Khashoggi Murder

HeadlineDec 04, 2018

CIA Director Gina Haspel is set to brief senators on the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi today. She will reportedly meet with top members of the Armed Services Committee, Foreign Relations Committee and the Intelligence Committee. Last week, Haspel was reportedly blocked from a congressional briefing, prompting outrage from senators, who instead had a closed-door meeting with Defense Secretary James Mattis and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Haspel is the only known high-level U.S. official to have heard the tape of Khashoggi’s murder, after other members of the administration, including Trump himself, refused to listen to it.
