On Friday, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) told CNN he believes White House adviser and President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner helped in the plot to murder Saudi Arabian writer Jamal Khashoggi.

“The reporting that Jared Kushner may have, with U.S. intelligence, delivered a hit list, an enemies list, to the crown prince, to MBS in Saudi Arabia, and that the prince then may have acted on that and one of the people he took action against was Mr. Khashoggi,” Castro said.

“Just to be clear Congressman, we don’t have, I just want to be clear for our viewers, we do not have that reporting. I’m not sure where you’re getting that from,” CNN’s Poppy Harlow interjected.

“But there’s has been reporting to that effect,” Castro rebuffed. “I’ve seen reporting to that effect.”

Harlow reiterated that CNN has no such reporting.

According to Castro, this means there has to be an investigation into the potential sharing of intelligence between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.

Watch the video below:

Kushner does have close ties to the Saudis and its crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, but there has been no evidence that he has any involvement with the suspected murder of Khashoggi.

Humble apologies for our fellow Texan’s outlandish comments. He must have just gotten back from Colorado and is working through his smuggled in contraband. No offense to my Colorado friends, but if you want him . . .

When all else fails, follow the dim playbook and just plain lie your ass off.

‘Irresponsible’ is an understatement, that comment is insane and offensive. The loons are making it up as they go, throwing anything at the wall hoping something will stick. There needs to be repercussions for making statements like that. We’ve heard of Fantasy Football, now we have Fantasy Politicians.

That TXn is messed up in his head. He certainly does not represent TX well saying things like that. But, with a name like he has, we all have to wonder about him in more ways than one.
