Kushner and MBS Discussed U.S. Intelligence, Legal Documents Show
As an addendum to Friday night’s exclusive report about the real reason MBS invested $2 billion with former senior White House advisor and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, below is a passage from the amended complaint of Saad Aljabri, who is suing MBS and his alleged henchmen for attempted murder (“ongoing attempted extrajudicial killing,” as the document says), including activities carried out on American soil.

Aljabri, currently in exile, is the former right hand to former Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef. In his complaint, Aljabri says quite clearly that he (and Bin Nayef) were aware in the spring of 2017 that Kushner and MBS were not only discussing the Saudi succession but that MBS was aware—and that he told Kushner—it was a problem that he did not have the backing of three U.S. intelligence agencies (the CIA, the FBI, and NSA) because they supported their long-term ally and friend MBN. (A well-placed source says that MBN and Aljabri were aware of this because, in their roles of heads of counterterrorism, they had intercepted calls between Kushner and MBS discussing this. The same sources says that U.S. intelligence heard them, too.)
Here are pages 79 through 88 of the amended complaint, filed in the United District Court of DC on February 4, 2021:
