US senators call for additional intel on Khashoggi’s murder

Washington—The bicameral leaders of the united states intelligence committee called for disclosure of information about Jamal Khashoggi killed by the Saudi kingdom.
The demand was made to the Trump administration to disclose the murder of a senior journalist by Saudi authorities.
The Republican senator Richard burr and democrat senator from Virginia Mark Warner requested an unclassified report of the murder case of Khashoggi while stating the provisions of the national defense authorization act of 2019 in a letter addressing the acting director of national intelligence Richard Grenell.
Burr said the letter was “one last effort to jog him”. Earlier the democratic senator Ron Wyden requested to use senate rules and insisted on disclosure of the report.
Wyden pushed congressional representatives to bring those answerable for Khashoggi’s murder.
Khashoggi was a US citizen and the columnist for the Washington post went missing after reaching the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct 2, 2018.
Initially, Saudi officials remarked that Khashoggi left the consulate alive, later the authorities conceded that Khashoggi was killed there while accusing a rogue group of Saudi operators.
Nonetheless, the CIA reported that Saudi prince Mohamad bin Salman is directly related to the incidence.–Worldwide News
