1. I'd like an option that he was just paying off a favor

Surely, you've seen the Godfather scene we are a humble immigrant, hat in hand, comes to Vito begging a favor. And the Godfather goes "I will do this thing for you. But someday... someone from my organization will come to you and ask a favor of you. And on that day, you will comply."

That's who's in the White House.

3. Agree there is a possibility of "favors"

 

But, if Khashoggi was reporting on Trump family benefiting from $200 billion dollar weapon (tempting to anybody) - then every Trump speech the Saudis $200 billion is more important than the Khashoggi murder - is specious.

8. Khashoggi's troubles started after he criticized Trump

BY JASON LEMON ON 11/21/18 AT 1:06 PM

Although Jamal Khashoggi has been remembered for his criticism of the war in Yemen and the crown prince’s crackdown on dissidents and activists, the troubles for the Washington Post columnist actually began in late 2016, when he criticized recently elected President Donald Trump.

According to a report by the State Department, the journalist’s column in the Saudi newspaper Al-Hayat was allegedly canceled due to political pressure. About six months later he fled to the United States, saying he “could face arrest upon returning home.”

"In 2016 authorities purportedly banned him from writing, appearing on television and attending conferences as the result of remarks he made that were interpreted as criticizing the president of the United States, according to multiple media sources," the report states.

“The expectation that Trump as president will be starkly different from Trump as candidate is a false hope at best," Khashoggi wrote in his column, according to Business Insider. He also classified Trump’s foreign policy positions as “contradictory,” saying his supportive statements toward Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Syria’s Bashar al-Assad were at odds with his criticism of Iran ...

9. Khashoggi barred from writing in Saudi Arabia after he criticized Trump

... Saudi Arabia's government actually barred him from appearing in media there after he criticized President Donald Trump in late 2016, according to the US State Department.

Khashoggi left his native country roughly six months after the ban in June 2017, which also prohibited him from making TV appearances and attending conferences. He became a US resident — splitting time between Virginia, Istanbul, and London — and wrote columns for The Washington Post.

From a 2017 State Department report on Saudi Arabia human rights:

"Well-known Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi said he moved to the United States in 'self-exile' and 'could face arrest upon returning home' due to his writing. He claimed his column in Saudi newspaper al-Hayat had been cancelled under political pressure. In 2016 authorities purportedly banned him from writing, appearing on television, and attending conferences as the result of remarks he made that were interpreted as criticizing the president of the United States, according to multiple media sources. Earlier, in July, authorities reportedly lifted the writing ban against him" ...
