Donald Trump publicly disavowed CIA findings that the highest levels of the Saudi Arabian government ordered the assassination of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggia inside the Saudi consulate in Istambul, Turkey. Instead of siding with US intelligence findings, Trump declared in an exclamation point ridden official statement that he believed Saudi denials that they had no knowledge of the planned assassination and would therefore not be punishing Saudi Arabia in any way whatsoever.
