NEWS: House Dems have learned that the State Department IG fired by Trump had mostly completed an investigation into the decision by @SecPompeo  to fast track $8 billion in arms to the Saudis, I'm told. Dems are looking at a possible link. New piece:

Hmmm....15 Saudis attack us on 9/11. The Saudi government kills a US journalist. A Saudi pilot in training kills 3 of our soldiers. Can anyone spot the common thread? My take: It’s way past time to quit arming and training the Saudis!

Generally, I don't care much about Trump's work ethic/golfing addiction. But seriously, man. The virus is spreading, the markets are plunging, the Saudis are tanking the oil markets, Syria is on fire. This was a work weekend, dammit.

So exactly why was the President and his Secretary of State coordinating the absolution of the Saudis before we even knew the details or had captured the suspects? Getting weirder, friends.

There is something so chilling and authoritarian about Pompeo continuing to refer to Khashoggi’s “disappearance.” We know he was murdered. Pompeo knows he was murdered. The Saudis know he was murdered (because they murdered him.) “Disappearance” sounds Stalinist in this context.

I mean this is just stunning. The Saudis now openly taunt us on Twitter, knowing Trump is under their thumb.

INTERESTING TIMING: A member of the Saudi Royal Air Force who was one of the 15 Saudis allegedly involved in the killing of JAMAL KHASHOGGI has died in a car accident in Riyadh, according to a Turkish media report.

Emoluments for dummies: Candidate Trump: “Saudi Arabia, I get along with all of them. They buy apartments from me. They spend $40 million, $50 million ... I like them very much.” President Trump on Saudis suspected murder of Khashoggi: “We’re going to have to see.” U.S. v $
