Khashoggi’s body parts found in Saudi consul general’s home

Khashoggi’s body parts found in Saudi consul general’s home

President Trump said Tuesday that Saudi officials had the "worst coverup ever" in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside a consulate in Turkey but said he would "leave it up to Congress" on punishing Riyadh for its behavior.

Erdogan made the remarks in a much anticipated speech about Khashoggi's killing - remarks timed to coincide with Saudi Arabia's high-profile Future Investment Initiative summit, dubbed "Davos in the Desert".

Saudi Arabia has faced intense global pressure as Turkey continues to release details of its investigation of what happened after Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

President Donald Trump has hedged his criticism of Saudi leaders over the disappearance and death of USA resident and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, insisting he does not want to imperil a "tremendous order" of $110 billion of weapons he says will support 500,000 U.S.jobs - figures that experts say are highly exaggerated.

Erdogan has said that 15 Saudi officials arrived in Istanbul shortly before Khashoggi's death and that a man, apparently dressed in the writer's clothes, acted as a possible decoy by walking out of the consulate on the day of the disappearance.

"How should a real investigation in Saudi Arabia work when one of the main suspects is the crown prince MBS?" said a Turkish senior official, referring to the crown prince by his initials.

It's very simple. Bad deal.

Khashoggi, who lived in self-imposed exile in the USA for almost a year before his death, had written critically of the young prince's crackdown on dissent. His death has sparked global condemnation and put major strains on US-Saudi relations.

The Saudi official also claimed that a forensic expert was present to erase all evidence of Khashoggi's presence at the consulate and safe house, so that if Khashoggi said later that he had been kidnapped, there would be no proof.

Chinese and Russian spies hack Donald Trump’s phone
President Donald Trump may have disclosed sensitive information to Fox News host Sean Hannity over an unsecured cellular phone. But Trump's aides have reportedly warned that Russian spies are "routinely eavesdropping" on his calls, the report said.

The Axios poll released early Wednesday found that 56 percent of respondents said Trump's response to Saudi Arabia has been "not tough enough", while 32 percent said his response has been "about right". To do this, Saudi agents typically "sit at a cafe and talk" with dissidents, the official said, although this obviously did not happen with Khashoggi.

"I want to speak about the killing of Khashoggi, this fact has been established".

Several Canadian companies have kept silent on whether they're attending a major Saudi Arabia investment conference after the event was overshadowed by the apparent murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"They had a very bad original concept", Trump said.

It was the first concrete step by the Donald Trump administration after the disclosure of Khashoggi's death in the Saudi consulate in Turkey's Istanbul, Time reported.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said Saudi officials made "reconnaissance" trips to the forest as well as the city of Yalova a day before Khashoggi was killed.

Riyadh has maintained that neither bin Salman nor his father, King Salman, knew of the operation to target Khashoggi.

As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner. That detail contrasts with the reports, unconfirmed by CBS News, that have come out from Turkish officials, who have said the body was chopped into pieces. "So they will listen to those stakeholders and shareholders", Hamod said. Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday that Britain would prevent all suspects in the killing from entering the country, shortly before she spoke to King Salman.

Turkish authorities briefed visiting Central Intelligence Agency chief Gina Haspel on the investigation into the killing and the evidence collected so far, a Turkish security official who was not authorized to speak to the media said on condition of anonymity.
