Report: It’s A Near Certainty That Saudi Arabia’s Prince Hacked Kushner’s Phone
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman may have possibly hacked Jared Kushner’s phone, as he did to Washington Post owner and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, according to Raw Story.
A new report in The Guardian revealed that: “The Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos had his mobile phone ‘hacked’ in 2018 after receiving a WhatsApp message that had apparently been sent from the personal account of the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, sources have told the Guardian. The encrypted message from the number used by Mohammed bin Salman is believed to have included a malicious file that infiltrated the phone of the world’s richest man, according to the results of a digital forensic analysis.”
White House correspondent for Bloomberg News Justin Sink noted the implications of the bombshell report.
“This invites the obvious question of if MBS has ever sent certain senior members of the White House video messages via WhatsApp,” Sink said.
“As we previously reported, Kushner chatted regularly with MBS on WhatsApp,” Ryan Grim, the DC bureau chief for The Intercept, speculated. “It is near-certain that MBS pulled this same hack on Kushner and Saudi [Arabia] has therefore had secret access to his phone for years.”
“Trump forced his security clearance through,” Grim noted.
