Engel Statement on Saudi Explanation of Jamal Khashoggi's Death

ENGEL STATEMENT ON SAUDI EXPLANATION OF JAMAL KHASHOGGI’S DEATH

WASHINGTON—Representative Eliot L. Engel, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, this evening made the following statement regarding the Saudi Government’s explanation of the death of Jamal Khashoggi:

“Tonight’s explanation from Saudi authorities just isn’t credible, particularly since the story has shifted so much over the past days. The U.S.-Saudi relationship simply cannot thrive with this issue unresolved. The Administration needs to push for a thorough and transparent investigation into Mr. Khashoggi’s death without delay.”
