ALWAYS BET ON THE dEEP sTATE:

CIA concludes Saudi crown prince ordered Jamal Khashoggi's assassination (Shane Harris, Greg Miller and Josh Dawsey November 16, 2018, Washington Post)

The CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul last month, contradicting the Saudi government's claims that he was not involved in the killing, according to people familiar with the matter.

The CIA's assessment, in which officials have said they have high confidence, is the most definitive to date linking Mohammed to the operation and complicates the Trump administration's efforts to preserve its relationship with a close ally.

In a normal administration such a leak would be scandalous, now it's just how we hold Donald accountable to American norms.
