Saudis Lash Out At US In Complete Deterioration Of Relations

"We're going to get to the bottom of it and there will be severe punishment".

Turkey has yet to publish any evidence of him being killed, though surveillance footage around the consulate shows a convoy of vehicles with diplomatic plates leaving the Saudi Consulate for the consul's home in Istanbul a little under two hours after Mr Khashoggi's arrival.

However, it remained unclear what evidence, if any, would remain almost two weeks after Khashoggi's disappearance.

Turkish officials have said they believe a 15-member Saudi "assassination squad" killed Mr Khashoggi there.

Saudi Interior Minister, Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud bin Naif bin Abdulaziz, "stressed that what has been circulating in terms of supposed orders to kill Jamal are outright lies and baseless allegations against the Kingdom's Government, which is committed to its principles, rules and traditions and is in compliance with worldwide laws and conventions".

Trump was asked in an interview on CBS News' "60 Minutes" Sunday whether he thought the Saudis murdered Khashoggi and did not rule out the possibility.

"I don't think any of our government officials should be going and pretending it's business as usual until we know what's happened here, " said Rubio, R-Fla. "He said it very strongly".

"I want to assure markets and petroleum consumers around the world that we want to continue support the growth of the global economy, the prosperity of consumers around the world", Al Falih said. As of this moment, they deny it, and they deny it vehemently.

The 25-year-old singer's new video features over three minutes of footage of her pet pig while the song plays. Ariana's ex-boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller died last month, September 7th from a suspected overdose.


Trump added: "There's a lot at stake. There's something really awful and disgusting about that, if that were the case".

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow declined to speculate on what Trump might do after the president promised "severe punishment" in a "60 Minutes" interview if the USA determines that Khashoggi was indeed killed inside the Saudi consulate.

Khashoggi, a self-exiled Saudi journalist and prominent critic of the Saudi crown prince, was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Turkey on October 2 to obtain documents he needed to get married.

Flake said if the Saudis did, in fact, kill Khashoggi, Congress might specifically curtail USA military aid to Saudi-led forces in Yemen. That requires the administration to sanction those found responsible of a gross violation of human rights against someone exercising freedom of expression.

"Saudi Arabia is our ally, not just economically, which the president has correctly referred to, but it's also our No. 1 ally in the region of conflict that matters most to us - which is with the Islamic Republic of Iran", Lieberman said Monday to FOX Business' Maria Bartiromo on "Mornings with Maria".

"The Kingdom also affirms that if it receives any action, it will respond with greater action, [and] that the Kingdom's economy has an influential and vital role in the global economy", it continued.

The State Department called the bipartisan effort premature. Even just hinting that it won't replace the barrels lost from Iran due to USA sanctions could be enough to push prices toward US$100 a barrel.
