A “Washington Post” guest contributor ordered the deaths of 26 journalists.
He is also a Yemeni militant.
Seems like kind of a big deal, considering fellow Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi was recently murdered in Saudi Arabia.
Users on Twitter were able to unearth past photos and videos of Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, the controversial Yemeni militant leader who published an op-ed piece on the Washington Post, showing him with his gun as he conducted televised interviews.
The op-ed by al-Houthi, the head of the so-called the Supreme Revolutionary Committee of the Houthi militia, was published by the US newspaper on November 9.
Al-Houthi is implicated in issuing directives for killing more than 26 Yemeni journalists, while there are 16 journalists until this day in detention centers.
The shocking images of al-Houthi dating back to 2016 shows him with his AK-47 placed either on his lap or on a table during multiple interviews that were aired on pro-Houthi channels.
Democrat Congressman Joaquin Castro (TX) was said to be considered as Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate in 2016.
Obviously, that title went to Virginia Senator Tim Kaine.
Appearing on CNN, Castro implicitly implies that President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is responsible for the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia.
From The Daily Wire:
House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) promoted a conspiracy theory without any evidence on Friday, saying that Jared Kushner may have been behind the apparent murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Castro: “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 may have acted on that, and one of the people he took action against is Mr. Khashoggi.”

.@JoaquinCastrotx’s allegation is an outrageous slanderous lie without a shred of proof, it’s reprehensible for a sitting Congressman and supposed “news” outlets to continue citing an article that used unnamed sources and was completely debunked.https://t.co/xf2Zhitg8B

This has to be among the most irresponsible accusations ever leveled without a whit of evidence for it, one obviously reflecting full-blown TDS. https://t.co/9hrXhIYFuF

Castro then backtracked:
To be clear, I did not intend to accuse @jaredkushner of orchestrating anything. Based on press reporting, I’m asking for Congress to open an investigation of whether any US Intelligence was shared with Saudi Arabia that led to political persecution or killing of #Khashoggi (1/7) https://t.co/31vUT7bEUc

Saudi Arabia has confirmed that journalist Jamal Khashoggi is dead.
How he died is now raising more questions, because the Saudis have already changed their story.
Here’s the scoop:
Missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi is dead, Saudi Arabia’s general prosecutor said early Saturday morning local time.
The government said that Khashoggi got into a fight with the people he met at the consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. The kingdom alleged that Khashoggi died in that clash.
Attorney General: Primary investigations disclose the death of Jamal Khashoggi. Investigations
continue with 18 persons, all are Saudi nationals.#SPAGOV

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo slapped down ABC News for a false report claiming had heard the alleged audio of Khashoggi being tortured and killed.
That was not true.
