I could have a court issue a summons to president Trump, Pope Francis, or Satan himself by filing a lawsuit. It's a piece of paper.

So shouldn't this be something handled by the UN or is Trump just pissed this leaked

Dismember?

Oh no, it's far worse than that, stupid earth humans:

Good luck with that.

Did they check with our Fuhrer first?

Because otherwise, that's a great way to end your career and lose retirement.

It'll never happen but I'd love to see him face trial. It's embarrassing how our govts ally themselves to such a brutal regime.

Summoned by the courts?

Let me laugh some more!

So a person in Canada can file a civil suit in US courts against a person in Saudi Arabia for a supposed offense that took place in Saudi Arabia against not the person filing the lawsuit?

That "suggestion immunity" is something I never heard of, but are Saudi-US  relations really important enough to invoke it?

I know, Trump thinks so, but he keeps saying how we don't need their oil.  They're a bunch of terrorists and war criminals.

Trump said over a million jobs depend on selling them, weapons, but that's nonsense.  And then there's the issue of flooding the Middle East with weapons.  How has that been working out?

I bet we could create even more jobs if we sold weapons to the Houthis and Iran as well.

I wouldn't want to be that judge when the WH hears aboot this.

This is quite amusing. Maybe Muslim v. Muslim hatred and violence is finally coming to a head after nearly 1400 years, but I doubt it. Every time they do this, their plan of world conquest gets derailed.

Yup, I will to my dying day point out that the Bush administration allowed the House of Saud to fly out of the US even as medical flights were denied the ability to fly. This despite the fact that every terrorist was either a Saudi national or indoctrinated in a Mudrasa funded by the Saudis.

rcain: It says only that he lives in Canada, that does not mean he has Canadian Citizenship.


I saw somewhere that said he was a "permanent Canadian Residency" or something.  Sounded like a Canadian green card to me.

Wasn't this band of assassins caught at the border with a suitcase or two filled with the bone saws and other "forensic" equipment?

Élite Trader: ex-Saudi intel officer accuses Mohammed bin Salman of ordering his assasination
That seems like it points to pretty clear intent on their part.

But now from this article, paging great friend, his HRH shadow President & Secretary of State Jared Kushner:

Neener, neener. We're immune because we're pals with the most corrupt and evil presidential administration in history.

The house of Saud is a brutal regime responsible for acts of terrorism across the globe, but since they have a CIA Costco membership nothing will come of this. Pearl's will be clutched, eyebrows raised and fists shaken. Noises will be made.
Them more arms will be sold and all will be forgiven.
Canada needs to ask their allies in Europe how they feel about foreign invasions and build a coalition to destroy Saudi Arabia once and for all.
Hitchens said it best, "There will be no peace on earth until the middle east is a radioactive pane of glass."
We dont need nukes, though. Just brutal trade embargoes and a denial of arms and assistance, then a negotiation with all their neighbors to drop the hammer once and for all.
I'm talking to you, Israel.

Why US court? Shouldn't it be Canada?

Personally, I don't think Saudi relations are worth squat to us, but that's just me.

fark that.  Why bog down the courts in Canada with US-Saudi bullshiat?

He spied for the US....the US should house him, protect him, and go to court for him.

Got a cite for Saudis flying on the 11th or 12th?

If a US court issues a summons to Trump, he's got to respond or have his flunkies deal with it, especially if it's a Federal court (and this is the Federal court in DC.)  And he can't fire a Federal judge; they're appointed for life to prevent political interference.

Pope Francis isn't in US jurisdiction, nor is Saudi prince Mr Bone Saw, but if Trump loses, Biden's DoJ might take on the case.  Either way, the proper jurisdiction would be The Hague, but the US doesn't currently recognize them, and it's mostly an inconvenience unless MBS wants to visit the US.

He kills his own people! He's the next Saddam Hussein!

Well, HItler killed his own people too if by "his own people" you mean gays, Jews, communists, Poles, leftists, unionists, and a  lot of German Christians who fought the Nazi oppessors.
