Joe Biden Grants Saudi Prince Immunity Over Killing Of Journalist

Joe Biden talked tough about Saudi Arabia during the 2020 campaign, but his actions since then are anything but.

Biden has now granted immunity to the Saudi crown prince in the case of the murdered journalist Jamal Khasshoggi.

Even members of the liberal media are turning on Biden over this.

The Department of Justice said in a court filing that bin Salman’s new role as prime minister of Saudi Arabia means he has immunity from a civil suit about the 2018 killing that took place in the Saudi embassy in Istanbul.

“The United States government has expressed grave concerns regarding Jamal Khashoggi’s horrific killing and has raised these concerns publicly and with the most senior levels of the Saudi government,” the filing said.

“However, the doctrine of head of state immunity is well established in customary international law and has been consistently recognized in longstanding executive branch practice as a status-based determination that does not reflect a judgment on the underlying conduct at issue in the litigation,” the Justice Department wrote.

The Justice Department’s filing is not binding but it is likely to lead to the lawsuit being dismissed.

People are pretty angry about this.

Biden is a hypocrite, but then, we knew that.
