UPDATE – Bin Salman 'complicit' in Khashoggi murder: US senator

                              ADDS DETAILS THROUGHOUT</p>  <p>By Umar Farooq</p>  <p>WASHINGTON (AA) - The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman is &quot;complicit&quot; in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a senator said Tuesday.</p>  <p>Senator Lindsey Graham said the de facto ruler of the kingdom was surely responsible for the Saudi journalist's death.</p>  <p>&quot;The crown prince, is a wrecking ball. I think he’s complicit in the murder of Khashoggi to the highest level possible,&quot; Graham told reporters after an intelligence briefing by CIA Director Gina Haspel.</p>  <p>Haspel briefed a small group of senators on the killing of Khashoggi, after an outcry by lawmakers for her absence last week during a Senate briefing on Yemen that was attended by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton.</p>  <p>The CIA has yet to make a public comment on the killing, but reports said that the agency concluded the crown prince ordered the murder.</p>  <p>Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, went missing after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2.</p>  <p>After initially saying he had left the consulate alive, weeks later the Saudi administration admitted he was killed there.</p>  <p>Graham said bin Salman and Saudi Arabia were two separate entities, and the crown prince could not serve as a reliable partner to the U.S.</p>  <p>&quot;I find it very difficult to be able to do business because I think he’s crazy. I think he is dangerous, and he has put the relationship at risk,&quot; he said. &quot;I cannot support arms sales to Saudi Arabia as long he is gonna be in charge of this country. The war in Yemen has gotten out of control.&quot;</p>  <p>Senator Bob Corker, one of eight senators at the briefing, also told reporters he believed bin Salman was responsible for the murder.</p>  <p>&quot;If he was in front of a jury he’d be convicted in 30 minutes, guilty,&quot; said Corker.</p>  <p>&quot;I have zero question in my mind that the crown prince, MBS, ordered the killing, monitored the killing,&quot; he added, referring to bin Salman by his initials.</p>  <p>In response to a comment made by Bolton, Graham said there was no smoking gun, but there was a &quot;smoking saw,&quot; referring to reports a bone saw was used to dismember Khashoggi in the Saudi Consulate.
