Skip to comments.Marco Rubio: Mnuchin should not visit Saudi Arabia amid search for missing journalist
Posted on 10/15/2018 6:31:18 AM PDT by C19fan
Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin should not attend an upcoming investment conference in Saudi Arabia amid an ongoing investigation into the country's possible involvement in the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who went missing earlier this month in Turkey.
"I don't think he should go," Rubio told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union," adding that he doesn't think any US officials should continue with their usual business in Saudi Arabia until Washington gets to the bottom of Khashoggi's disappearance. "I don't think any of our government officials should be going and pretending it's business as usual until we know exactly what's happened here," Rubio, R-Florida, said.

Shut up little marco.
I dont think Rubio should go on CNN.
I don’t think the President needs Rubio’s advice
on how to handle this.
Also, that he is an agent. There is much that is not known. Until more is known, it is not yet time to be taking action. If Saudi killed a spy inside their embassy that is a lot different.
We now know that Brit spies pose as professors. A spy posing as a journalist makes great sense to me.
Rubio cant wait for his friend Romney in the senate. The two will speak together.
Yeah, the next McCain/Graham/Flake cabal.
Trumps foreign policy of engage, engage and engage has worked pretty well. This old school thinking of not talking to someone until they do what you want them to do is so child like......and unproductive.
A member of the Muslim Brotherhood is dead. That is a very good thing. We need more of it. VJ?
Three words for Little Marco : GAY. FOAM. PARTY.
/src on/FDR should not helped the Soviet Union in fighting Hitler because Stalin offed Trotsky with an ice pick./src off/The US and Saudi Arabia have a common enemy in Iran. Keeping that alliance is much more important than a spy cum journalist member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
To be countered by the McConnell/Paul/Graham Alliance!!!
Old Mitch and Lindsay each seem to have grown a pair! And they have seen just how murderous the DEMs have become, when dealing with their enemies.
They NEED Godfather TRUMP for protection!
The Saudis have spent so much money influencing politicians and the media that they have their own tent in the swamp. There are gullible Americans who actually believe and trust the 9/11 Saudis and suffer from the Stockholm Syndrome. Thankfully Trump is a street smart New Yorker and deals with the vile Saudis realistically.
But in the case of a muslim brotherhood member who was tied to Saudi intelligence he wants war.
Marco needs to shut up
Little Marco rarely misses an opportunity to undermine our POTUS. Pathetic beyond belief. I will be “voting for my wife” should Rubio be on my ballot in 2022 and Trump not in the White House
Little Marco is like a gadfly. Maybe he should hook up with a cow.
Well, killing people is wrong. Saudi Arabia needs to find out who killed Khasoggi in their consulate and punish them. Looking at the comments, it looks like some Freepers will bash Rubio no matter what he says.
