Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, said he doesn’t dispute the CIA’s conclusion that Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman of Saudi Arabia was behind the death of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

“Look, I’m not going to dispute American intelligence services’ recommendations. I’m also not going to talk about anything intelligence-related,” Kushner said at a TIME Magazine 100 forum.
