'Where's Jared Kushner?' New intel report blaming Saudi prince for Khashoggi murder raises questions

A newly released U.S. intelligence report directly implicates Saudi crown price Muhammad bin Salman for approving a plan to gruesomely murder Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi -- but one name was conspicuously absent.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence report said the crown prince viewed the Saudi Arabia-born Khashoggi as a threat to his power and broadly supported his assassination, but many wondered why there was no mention of Jared Kushner -- former president Donald Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law.

Kushner and the crown prince spoke privately and informally with the crown prince while serving in the White House, and questions swirled around their relationship, which continued in the same fashion even after Khashoggi's grisly murder.

But the report does not indicate whether Kushner or Trump were aware of the plan to murder the U.S.-based journalist, prompting even further questions.
