Washington: Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused US President Donald Trump of being complicit in hiding the truth about the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Sputnik quoted Clinton saying during a speech in Toronto, “We have a President who is part of the cover-up as to what happened in that consulate or embassy when Mr Khashoggi was murdered.” She also suggested Trump and ‘those closest to him’ have their ‘own personal commercial interest’ in concealing the incident around Khashoggi’s murder.

President Trump came under fire for suggesting on November 20 Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ‘had knowledge’ about Khashoggi’s murder and saying the US would remain a strategic partner for the Riyadh despite the ongoing scandal. He noted it would be ‘foolish’ to terminate weapons exports contracts with the kingdom, a move mulled by Congress ever since it became known Khashoggi had been killed.
