Saudi crown prince denies having Trump’s son-in-law ‘in his pocket’

Saudi crown prince denies having Trump’s son-in-law ‘in his pocket’

According to Times of Israel, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has rejected the claims made in The Intercept last week with reference to an unnamed reliable source that the Saudi crown prince boasted to the United Arab Emirates Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed and others that he had Kushner “in his pocket.”

The crown prince said he and Kushner work together as friends, more than partners but rejected the claims that said Kushner gave him the names of Saudi figures whom he had arrested and jailed during what he called an “anti-corruption crackdown.

However, it must also be noted that the arrests came shortly after an October meeting in Riyadh between the crown prince and Kushner, who saw the report before he lost his top-secret security clearance in February.
