Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Riyadh today. The Trump administration has continued to defend the Saudi royal family over the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed in October at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul by Saudi agents. In November, Pompeo told the Senate that, despite CIA findings to the contrary, there is no direct evidence linking the crown prince with the murder; however, senators unanimously passed a resolution last month condemning Mohammed bin Salman for Khashoggi’s murder.
