Putin And The Saudi Crown Prince Had An Extra Special Handshake At The G20

(It is clearly going very well.)

There may have been other factors in play in the decision: Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty on Thursday to lying to Congress about the Trump Organization’s pursuit of a real estate deal in Russia during the 2016 campaign.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisted that Ukraine was the only reason for the cancellation: “The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax, which is hopefully now nearing an end, is doing very well. Unfortunately, it probably does undermine our relationship with Russia. However, the reason for our canceled meeting is Ukraine. Hopefully, that will be resolved soon so that productive conversations can begin.”

Argentine law includes a concept known in international law as “universal jurisdiction” which — in short — says that human rights violations on a large enough scale can be prosecuted by any country, no matter where the crimes take place.

Human Rights Watch used that to file a case in Argentina against bin Salman, related to his likely role in Khashoggi’s murder, the reported torture of female activists, and war crimes during his country’s ongoing war in Yemen. While it’s unlikely that any action will be taken against bin Salman while he’s actually in Argentina, any investigation at all is still an embarrassment for the young leader.

Not a care in the world, these two. Not a single care.
