MBS Vowed to Use 'Bullet' on Jamal Khashoggi — US Intelligence

Al-Jubeir declined to respond to a New York Times report that the Crown Prince told an aide in 2017 he would use "a bullet" on Khashoggi, according to communications intercepted by US intelligence agencies.
It has also called for an worldwide inquiry.
Turkish and United States intelligence services have also linked Prince Mohammed to the murder, although President Donald Trump's White House has been keen to blur the lines in order to maintain the strong military and ecomomic relationship between the two countries.
The journalist, who worked as a columnist for The Washington Post newspaper and was a vocal critic of Saudi policies, went missing on October 2 after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
During the conversation, MBS said that Khashoggi must be returned to Saudi Arabia by force if he refused to come back.
"If the President ignores the clear mandate of the Magnitsky Act in a case involving premeditated murder perpetrated by officials of a foreign government, the White House will share the blame for attempting to cover up the crime and for helping those responsible evade justice", Leahy, who was among the group of senators requesting the probe, said.
Four months since his murder, Khashoggi's body has not been found. He had gone to the Saudi consulate to get certification of his divorce, so he could marry his fiancée. India and Israel have not yet been able to find a mutually convenient date for Netanyahu's visit even though the government remains keen to host him.
But Saudi officials insist he was murdered by a "rogue" team of Saudi agents not acting on the prince's orders.
