President Trump: 'Certainly Looks' Like Saudi Writer Dead

Probe of Missing Saudi Journalist Brings Consulate Search, US Secretary of State Visit 'He Had This Guy Murdered': Graham Says 'Toxic' Saudi Crown Prince 'Has Got to Go'
Patty Aguilar | 19 October, 2018, 13:21

Asked what Trump should do earlier in the day, Graham said, "It's up to him", adding: "I know what I'm going to do, I'm going to sanction the hell out of Saudi Arabia".

Turkish authorities have told MEE that they have video and audio recordings of the journalist's alleged murder, and found evidence of blood in the consulate's sewerage system before being allowed into the consulate.

A Turkish foreign ministry source said the police would search the consulate again on Tuesday as well as the consul's residence, which Turkish television has previously reported could be linked to Khashoggi's disappearance.

Pompeo's trip to hear both sides of the Khashoggi case - Saudi denials in Riyadh and Turkish accusations in Ankara - did not appear to offer any deeper clarity into how the Trump administration is dealing with the conflicting accounts from two major allies. Donald Trump said, Saudi Arabia may looked elsewhere, possibly China and Russian Federation to buy arms again Donald Trump hinted on protecting U.S. job losses if sanctions was imposed on Saudi Arabia.

Pompeo says the Saudis assured him they will conduct a "complete, thorough" investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance.

The New York Times and The Washington Post have reported, citing anonymous sources, that Saudi officials may soon acknowledge Khashoggi's slaying at the consulate but blame it on a botched intelligence operation. The source said Saudi Arabia must make "a genuine contribution" to the investigation of Khashoggi's disappearance in Istanbul.

"Just spoke to the King of Saudi Arabia who denies any knowledge of whatever may have happened "to our Saudi Arabian citizen", Mr Trump tweeted.

Istanbul police are now also planning to search the nearby consul's residence, a diplomatic source said. That convention covers diplomatic immunity, as well as the idea that embassies and consulates sit on foreign soil in their host countries.

US President Donald Trump lashed out at notions that he has connections to Saudi Arabia.

After a review lasting almost four years, Defense Secretary James Mattis agreed that Canley's heroism merited the Medal of Honor . Gonzalez, who was killed, would be posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor .

"The Secretary reiterated the President's concern with respect to Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance, as well as the President's desire to determine what happened", she said.

"Well this is not rogue killers, this is a rogue crown prince", Graham said in a separate interview with Fox News Radio.

Surveillance footage leaked in Turkish media shows vehicles moving between the consulate and the consul's home after Mr Khashoggi's disappearance. He had this guy murdered in a consulate in Turkey and to expect me to ignore it.

A Turkish source involved in the investigation told MEE the probe on Monday had been meticulous. Canada paid dearly for criticizing Mohammed Bin Salman [MBS] Saudi Arabia politics, Yemen remains in pillage, Qatar is on economic stranglehold of Gulf Cooperation Countries [GCC] blockade led by Saudi Arabia. But one thing is certain: whatever narrative emerges, the worldwide reputation of the Saudi Crown Prince and power-behind-the-throne Mohammed Bin Salman will forever be tainted by this affair.

A cleaning crew walked into the consulate hours ahead of the investigative team's arrival.

Earlier Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan suggested investigators were looking into possibility that evidence of toxic materials had been concealed.

Prince Mohammed has aggressively pitched the kingdom as a destination for foreign investment.

Trump has threatened the kingdom with "severe punishment" if it is shown that Khashoggi was killed inside its Istanbul mission. Several business leaders and media outlets have backed out of the upcoming investment conference in Riyadh, called the Future Investment Initiative.

They include the CEO of Uber, a company in which Saudi Arabia has invested billions of dollars; billionaire Richard Branson; JPMorgan Chase & Co. chief executive Jamie Dimon; and Ford Motor Co. cxecutive chair Bill Ford.
