WATCH: Nicolle Wallace says Trump ‘stumbled into a major intel scandal’ — and lists the questions Democrats must ask

Published

MSNBC “Deadline: White House” anchor Nicolle Wallace predict President Donald Trump “stumbled into a major intel scandal” on Tuesday and broke down a list of questions that Democrats need to ask when they take over Congress in January.

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has reportedly concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was behind the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Trump, however, dismissed the CIA findings in a Tuesday statement.

“Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event – maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!” the statement read. “That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi.”

“It is what it is,” Trump said while leaving the White House.

“Because of Donald Trump’s statement today, there’s also a great chance that the White House just stumbled into a major intel scandal,” Wallace noted.

Wallace went on to list a number of questions that the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) may want answered.

“When was the president briefed on the intelligence community’s assessment regarding MBS’ role in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi?” she asked.

“When the president floated the Saudi line about rogue killers being behind the savage murder of a U.S. resident, did the president already know, had he already been briefed that MBS was responsible?” she continued.

“Did the intelligence community describe Khashoggi as an enemy of the state and member of the Muslim Brotherhood as Donald Trump did today in his statement?” she asked.

“What U.S. government agencies signed off on today’s statement from the White House,” she wondered.

Did any U.S. government agency signal any concern about that White House statement today that contradicts the intelligence community assessment?” Wallace asked.

“And finally, what happens next now that the United States has signaled to nations like Saudi Arabia, Russia, China, and others — that the United States is so fundamentally weak and so scared that we will tolerate all manner of human rights abuses including Russia’s killing of dissidents with chemical weapons, Saudi Arabia’s slaughter of a U.S. permanent resident?” she asked. “What happens next?”
