- Cotton said the administration have last week granted sovereign immunity is in keeping with the customs of lawsuits involving foreign heads of state.
- “It would have been a major break if those customs did not grant that kind of immunity,” Cotton said on “Fox News Sunday.”
The administration, through the State Department said the crown prince is legally immune from a lawsuit filed by Khashoggi’s fiancee.
- The U.S. intelligence community previously concluded the killing of Khashoggi, a Saudi dissident, was ordered by the crown prince.
- Cotton also reportedly said other regimes had done worse, so the U.S. shouldn’t be too picky with its foreign partners.
