What you need to know from Day 5 in the Khashoggi trial

Supporters of Ahmaud Arbery kept watch outside the courthouse on Tuesday morning as the 23-year-old man who drove the car that killed Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was arraigned.

The murder of Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post, took place inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2 and sparked an international uproar. The case has intensified global pressure on the Saudi regime.

Lawyers for Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s family Wednesday asked a Virginia federal judge to strip the kingdom of its assets and a U.S. Senate committee to freeze the assets of two Saudi princes.

Minutes after the administration’s report about an executive order to roll back its greenhouse gas regulations, E.P.A. Director Andrew Wheeler on Tuesday described sweeping initiatives to reshape emissions policies that had his predecessor, Scott Pruitt, fiercely opposed.

It was the long-awaited long overdue report from the Environmental Protection Agency on its reconsideration of Obama-era climate regulations, among them the Clean Power Plan, that filed the paperwork to initiate the litigation.

“This part of the administration’s climate policies, we think, … serve to help the environment and prevent global warming,” E.P.A. Spokesman Jahan Wilcox said.

Ahead of the report’s release, the Environmental Defense Fund filed a lawsuit against the administration to reverse the changes, arguing that it would undermine commitments the Trump administration has made.
