US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to visit Turkey Turkey 10:06

Trump compared the case of Jamal Khashoggi, a missing journalist who was critical of the Saudi monarchy, with the case of his recent Supreme Court nominee who faced sexual abuse allegations.

The searches and the leaks in Turkish media have ensured the world's attention remains focused on what happened to Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who went into a self-imposed exile in the US over the rise of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

On Tuesday, a high-level Turkish official told the AP that police found "certain evidence" of Khashoggi's slaying at the consulate, without elaborating.

The Washington Post has previously cited unnamed U.S. and Turkish officials pointing to audio and video recordings that prove Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate and was then dismembered.

"Horrendous tortures were committed on Khashoggi, who came to the consulate for documents", the Yeni Safak account said.

"My hope is that we can reach conclusions that will give us a reasonable opinion as soon as possible, because the investigation is looking into many things such as toxic materials and those materials being removed by painting them over", Erdogan told reporters.

The residence of the Saudi consul is cordoned off by Turkish police in Istanbul, on October 16, 2018, the day after Turkish police and prosecutors searched the Saudi embassy after Riyadh gave the green-light amid global uproar over the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi since October 2. Turkish authorities suspect he was abducted and murdered by the Saudis. The diplomat had left Turkey, according to the official. He offered his assessment after talks with the Saudi leadership and said the Crown Prince denied any knowledge of what happened to Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

"The Saudis are said to be preparing a cover story that will attribute Mr. Khashoggi's murder to the excesses of a team that was dispatched to interrogate him".

Gardiner says it is a complicated issue, while it's important to send a strong message that the killing of a journalist is wrong, Saudi Arabia is a strong ally to the United States.

The president concluded: 'Answers will be forthcoming shortly'.

His comments came as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday with the crown prince in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

How the crown prince emerges from the crisis is a test of how the West will deal with Saudi Arabia in the future. Before leaving Riyadh, Mr. Pompeo told reporters that the Saudi leaders "made no exceptions on who they would hold accountable". "We face our challenges together - the past, the day of, tomorrow".

Moreover, the officer is linked to Saudi Arabia's main intelligence service, the General Intelligence Presidency, reported CNN.

"I know this: Nothing happens in Saudi Arabia without MBS knowing it", Graham said. They spend $40 million, $50 million.

Trump on Tuesday during an interview with FOX Business' Trish Regan said he spoke with the crown prince who reassured him that a serious investigation was underway.

Khashoggi vanished on October 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

One of the people suspected of being involved in the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi has been identified as a frequent travel companion of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, according to sources cited by The New York Times on Tuesday.
