Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Remember When Netanyahu Said He Slept in Kushner’s Bed?

Jared Kushner ‘deeply involved’ in White House response to Khashoggi’s disappearance

-Kushner’s relationship with Salman has been the subject of intense scrutiny and criticism. Other sources who spoke to Yahoo News about Kushner’s role in the effort provided new details about his thinking regarding the Saudi heir. All of the sources requested anonymity to discuss high-level diplomatic strategy.

-One source familiar with Kushner’s work said he is playing an important role in deciding how the White House will react to Khashoggi’s disappearance and communicate with the Saudi government.

-“He’s deeply, deeply involved in what’s going on,” the source said of Kushner.

-Khashoggi’s disappearance, and what some critics have called a tepid response from the Trump administration, have led to criticism of Kushner for his close relationship with Crown Prince Mohammed bin  Salman. Kushner, whose White House portfolio includes Middle Eastern affairs and spearheading a peace plan between Israel and Palestinians, has enjoyed a closer partnership with the crown prince since Trump took office last year.

-Critics have accused Kushner of buying into a media narrative that Mohammed has aggressively pushed since June 2017, when the Saudi King changed the order of succession and made the crown prince heir to throne. With the help of a robust public relations operation, Mohammed cast himself as a reformer bent on modernizing Saudi Arabia, with measures that included allowing women to drive and launching an economic initiative designed to encourage tech startups and decrease the country’s dependence on oil. He also visited the U.S., including California, where he hobnobbed with the elite in Silicon Valley and Hollywood.

-However, even as the crown prince launched his charm offensive, Saudi Arabia carried out a brutal anticorruption drive that saw scores of business leaders jailed and journalists arrested, and led a military campaign in Yemen that has led to widespread civilian deaths.
