Trump’s Buddies

Two former Twitter employees accused of spying for Saudi Arabia

Washington, DC (CNN Business)— Federal prosecutors accused two former Twitter employees of spying on behalf of Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.

Ali Alzabarah, a Saudi national, and Ahmad Abouammo, a US citizen, allegedly used their access at the social media giant to gather sensitive and nonpublic information on dissidents of the Saudi regime, the Justice Department said in a criminal complaint.

The case, unsealed in San Francisco federal court, underscores the efforts by the Saudi government to control anti-regime voices abroad. It also recalls a move reportedly directed by the country’s controversial leader to weaponize online platforms against critics like Jamal Khashoggi.

Mohammad bin Salman takes care of critics with the same techniques used by Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un, Xi Jinping, and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan – hunt them down and take them out. Trump envies all of them and wants to join the “club”.
