Eh, why bother? I mean unless there's someone internal they're looking to get rid of and just need a reason. And by "they're" I'm pretty sure I'm talking about the crown price.

According to some commentators, it would have been irrational for the Crown Prince to order Khashoggi's murder. It caused a greater loss of prestige than any article by him ever could have. If he ordered that, that would mean he's incompetent. But the Saudis really do seem incompetent after these pathetic cover-up attempts.

So, in order to get Erdogan to leave bin Salman alone, Trump is reportedly trying to figure out how extradite Erdogan's former ally and current critic, Fetullah Gulen.

Because obviously, the way to handle the murder of a journalist who is a US permanent resident and prominent critic of one authoritarian regime is to hand over a permanent resident who is a prominent critic of a different authoritarian regime.
