Kushner to attend Saudi economic conference hosted by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman

Jared Kushner is expected to visit Saudi Arabia next month for an economic conference, one year after a slew of businesses and political figures boycotted the event following the grisly killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Kushner, a senior White House adviser and President Trump’s son-in-law, is expected to attend the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh — unofficially known as “Davos in the Desert” — in late October, according to a list of attendees obtained by The Washington Post. The conference is at the Ritz-Carlton, where Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman imprisoned hundreds of the country’s business and political leaders for months in what he called an anti-corruption campaign as he consolidated power in the oil-rich kingdom.

Kushner is likely to attend the conference but has not yet officially confirmed and would do so as part of a broader U.S. delegation, said someone familiar with his plans who was not authorized to discuss the issue on the record and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Last year, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin withdrew from the forum amid controversy after a team of 15 Saudi agents flew to Istanbul on government aircraft in October and killed Khashoggi, a contributing columnist for The Post, inside the Saudi Consulate there, where he had gone to pick up documents that he needed for his planned marriage to a Turkish woman. Investigators believe the team used a bone saw to dismember him.

The CIA later concluded that the Saudi crown prince ordered the killing.

2. Bonesaws for Health Care. Jared in his pocket.

Excerpt...

One of the people MBS told about the discussion with Kushner was UAE Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, according to a source who talks frequently to confidants of the Saudi and Emirati rulers. MBS bragged to the Emirati crown prince and others that Kushner was “in his pocket,” the source told The Intercept.

9. I'm sorry, but what does that little weasel know about anything? He will not be there

to contribute but only to make deals for himself and the Trump family, to screw over this country and line their pockets with more corrupt Saudi cash. He makes me sick. I can't wait for the day he is thrown into prison for the rest of his miserable life.
