Well, when it walks like a duck and talks like a duck…

President Donald Trump defended Saudi Arabia in an interview Tuesday, suggesting the wave of criticism the Middle Eastern kingdom has received over a missing Saudi journalist is premature.

“Here we go again with you know you’re guilty until proven innocent,” Trump told The Associated Press in an interview at the White House.

The AP’s report said Trump compared the accusations against Saudi Arabia, which stands accused of killing Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, to sexual assault allegations against recently confirmed Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“I don’t like that,” Trump said. “We just went through that with Justice Kavanaugh, and he was innocent all the way as far as I’m concerned.

Wait, how did Brett Kavanaugh become part of this story?

As for proof of guilt, well that is being gathered at this very minute. 

Courtesy of The Daily Beast:

After finally searching the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Monday, Turkish police reportedly found “certain evidence” that missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi had been killed inside the building, according to an official cited Tuesday by the Associated Press. The official did not provide further detail about what was found, but said it was obtained during the nine-hour search that ended Tuesday morning. The Associated Press also reported Tuesday that the Saudi consul is planning to leave the country, after Turkish officials announced plans to search his home for further evidence. Tuesday’s news comes after the Saudi government has repeatedly denied involvement in Khashoggi’s disappearance and suspected death, despite condemnation from Turkish and U.S. officials alike. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan added to that condemnation Tuesday when he claimed that the Saudis had painted over part of the consulate.

The question really is not why is everybody so certain that the Saudis killed Jamal Khashoggi, that’s fairly obvious, the question is why does Trump feel the need to rush to their defense before all of the evidence has been gathered and does it have anything to do with the fact that they have repeatedly bailed him out of financial difficulties, and have poured millions into his companies for years?

    Trump is waging a campaign to deny and discredit the evidence surrounding Jamal Khashoggi’s murder, and Sen. Kennedy’s answer demonstrated that Republicans are too cowardly to take a moral stand against their president.

    Vance’s office cleared daughter Ivanka Trump and son Donald Trump Jr., who were being looked at for allegedly defrauding Trump SoHo investors and would-be buyers by lying about the number of condos that had been sold.
    In 2012, Vance met with an attorney for the pair, Marc Kasowitz, who had previously given him $25,000.
    An additional $32,000 was donated after the office declined to prosecute Ivanka and Trump Jr.

      #7 “200 Riverside Boulevard is the seventh Trump-branded building to have the president’s name removed since 2016.

      The others, Fahrenthold added, are three other “Trump Place” buildings in New York alongside Trump hotels in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan and those in Toronto and Panama.

      “Also,” the reporter added, “NYC took his name off a carousel in Central Park, which Trump had unilaterally renamed after himself.”

    it will be seen around the world as an unmistakable sign that there is no cost for heinous behavior — after all, it happened days after a US-based journalist for a top American newspaper was apparently killed before his body was reportedly chopped up in an official Saudi government building.

    “The President’s handling of the Khashoggi case epitomizes the doctrine of individual national sovereignty he laid out at the UN General Assembly.
    “Whatever those values may be and they have been in the past in terms of foreign policy, they are no longer important and he has made that very clear,” said Ivo Daalder, president of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, co-author of a study of Trump’s foreign policy, “The Empty Throne,” published on Tuesday.”

    “he hinted that as long as Russian President Vladimir Putin did not kill his opponents on US soil, he would look the other way.
    “I rely on them. It’s not in our country,””

    “He had no interest in leading America’s friends and allies. He was lOOking to BEAT them,”

    So, the Saudis are being treated as guilty until proven innocent, but Hillary and Dr. Ford aren’t accorded the same treatment from him? I’m shocked! Shocked, I tell you.
