Disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi

The disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi should send shudders down the back of any person or government that respects the rule of law, democracy, and freedom of the press. We call on the Trump Administration to fully support this investigation, halt further engagement with the Saudi government until more is known in this rapidly evolving story, and if appropriate, immediately consider Magnitsky sanctions. Sending our Treasury Secretary to Riyadh in less than two weeks sends the wrong message about the US's intent to uphold the rule of law and basic human decency.
