Saudi Court Sentences Five People To Death For Khashoggi Murder | Hallie Jackson | MSNBC 1


A court in Saudi Arabia on Monday sentenced five people to death in the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the country's consulate in Istanbul. Three others were sentenced to a collective total of 24 years in prison for their role in covering up the October 2018 killing. The investigation concluded that the murder had been a mistake and that the perpetrators agreed to kill the journalist when they found it would be too hard to move him to another location. Aired on 12/23/19.

  1. Dead men … they don’t talk

  2. Secret courts? For all we know, they could have pulled these guys off the streets and made them take the fall for the murder.

    What, Kushner, the guy who gave the green light wasn’t included?

    • Well, Jared “666 5th Avenue” Kushner is, after all, Damien from “The Omen” all grown up, so pinning anything on him would be tricky.

    • Robert EdmistonII Khash- who? Never heard of him before they offed him. If a tree falls in the forest… yada yada

    Now, the Psychopath of the Divided States will make sure to point his tiny finger at anyone, when he begins having American journalists murdered.

  6. And yet, the guy who hired them walks away free of any punishment.

    The US needs to slam down harder on this to ensure justice is served.

  7. These five men are not the ones you need to be executing; the prince, Kushner and the ones who actually did the murdering are still free and ready to repeat on orders.

    More blood on Kushners hands!

  9. Trump would LOVE to just execute Bolton, Sondland, Taylor, Mulvaney and Giuliani and have his impeachment go away.

  10. But the criminal crowned prince that called the hit goes on unscathed. This just shows how little life is worth in Saudi Arabia where you can have someone murdered and then cover it up by killing the murderers.

      It’s almost as if there’s no justice because the government is too afraid to investigate their leaders for wrongdoing……. thank god that those’nt happened with Republicans in the Senate.

    • @mario alvarez villa – Sarcasm obviously.

    • mario alvarez villa you do know that Nancy didn’t deliver the articles of impeachment to the Senate… right???

  11. Trump: “Saudi Arabia, I get along with all of them. They buy apartments from me. They spend $40 million, $50 million,” Trump told a crowd at an Alabama rally on Aug. 21, 2015. “Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much.”

    Jan, 2016
    Trump: “My whole life I’ve been greedy, greedy, greedy. I’ve grabbed all the money I could get. I’m so greedy.”

    Jan 9, 2016
    “Now, I’ll tell you, I’m good at that – so, you know, I’ve always taken in money,” he said at a rally in Iowa. “I like money. I’m very greedy. I’m a greedy person. I shouldn’t tell you that, I’m a greedy – I’ve always been greedy. I love money, right?

    • Trump can say he’ll jump over a cliff tomorrow and he needs all of his supporters to join him believe me they will follow😆😆😆😆

    • David J you do know that that was the whole concept of his show “The Apprentice”… right? He is as genuine and transparent a person you’ll ever meet.

    • Tickle Pink which is why he’ll be re-elected. Color me a cliff pancake

  12. When will Trump and Kushner be sentenced for the roles they played in his murder and it’s cover-up?

  13. was trump Jr N The prince Sentenced ?

  14. Shouldn’t they sentence MBS? That’s the dude that called the shots.

  15. 5 fall guys.
    This is not justice.

    • Gambit2483 Khash-who? Never even heard of him before they offed him. If a tree falls in the forest… yada yada

    • @Maha Tiki Cat Spoken like a true Republican. “Don’t you see my head stuck in the sand?!? That means the sun never rises or sets because I explained I didn’t see it!!” Get a fukki g clue!!

    The Crown Prince is guilty of murder, period!!

  17. The responsible Crown Prince gets away with murder ! Of course … he was never going to get in trouble, money and power buy everything …

  18. “….but, but, but… YOU ORDERED US TO DO SO!!! We just did what you ordered us to do under penalty of death for disobeying your order! Can we please have a trial so we can get to the bottom of this…. please an inquiry… to show we had no choice but to do as we were ordered. No inquiry? Why? What? Why no trial? What do you mean we need to get this over with quick and close the book on this case. “

  19. Trump abandoned an American Journalist( Protected under #1) when he knew( we have the film…)Of the Murder, who did it, when and how. He knew of the Dismemberment( Noone knows if he was dismembered while he was alive or dead) and he set it aside because of relations with the Saudis.Americans leave noone behind, DOA

    It the guy who ordered it is free., this is not justice. They think we are stupid enough to believe these guys are the only ones responsible. Death for the Prince!

    • Sabrina Tenney Tell the truth, did you know who Khashoggi was before they killed him? Khash- who? Never heard of him before they offed him. If a tree falls in the forest… yada yada
