Of course that may be just where Jared wants to be in one manner of speaking, but the possibility that MBS gained access to the Presidential Daily Briefing to construct his list of detainees (some of whom may have been tortured) last May is troubling and makes one wonder if he has similar access to U.S. Intelligence in his continuing war against Yemeni dissidents.
“Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman reportedly bragged about having White House senior counsel Jared Kushner “in his pocket” and may have used highly sensitive intelligence from the President’s Daily Briefing in his violent crackdown on dissent in Saudi Arabia, The Intercept reported Wednesday.
Three sources told The Intercept that Kushner had revealed names of Saudis disloyal to the crown prince.
“The Saudi figures named in the President’s Daily Brief were among those rounded up; at least one was reportedly tortured,” The Intercept explained.
Mohammed bin Salman also was said to have told UAE Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed that Kushner was “in his pocket.”
Of course the financially strapped Kushner’s spokesperson denies Jared had taken up residence in MBS’ robes.
But if selling the PDB to MBS makes a mortgage payment for the 666, do we doubt it?
