Podcast looks deeper into Khashoggi killing

The third season of the popular podcast "Conspiracyland" delves into the life and the brutal, horrific death of U.S.-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. In October 2018, the Washington Post columnist was assassinated and dismembered inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, by Saudi agents, who, according to U.S. intelligence officials, were acting on orders from Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Yahoo News chief investigative correspondent Michael Isikoff, the host of "Conspiracyland," joins CBSN AM to discuss.

Ex-U.S. envoy on Biden's Saudi actions

The White House is defending growing criticism over President Biden's decision not to take a more forceful stance against Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman after a U.S. intelligence report revealed the extent of the future king's involvement in the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi. The U.S. is issuing direct sanctions on more than 75 Saudi citizens, but the crown prince is not one of them. Jim Smith, who served as U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia from 2009 to 2013, joined CBSN to discuss.

Biden criticized for decision on Saudi prince

President Biden is facing growing criticism for failing to sanction Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. This comes as sources tell CBS News that the State Department will highlight a "reset and recalibration" of the U.S. relationship with Saudi Arabia. CBS News chief White House correspondent Nancy Cordes joins CBSN with details on that, plus Mr. Biden's upcoming meeting with the president of Mexico and the latest on his COVID relief plan.

U.S. to release report on Khashoggi murder

The Biden administration is preparing to announce new policies to protect journalists overseas. It comes as the Director of National Intelligence is set to release a declassified report on the 2018 murder of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi. On Thursday President Biden held his first call with the Saudi monarch, King Salman, whose son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has been implicated in the killing.
