Turkey may interrogate Saudi officials if needed

"Here we go again with, you know, you're guilty until proven innocent".

"Per two sources who spoke to CNN, however, the Saudis are preparing a report admitting that they meant to abduct and bring Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia, but that he was inadvertently killed in the process".

Pompeo was in Saudi Arabia for meetings with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

On Monday, Turkish and Saudi officials arrived at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul after the start of a joint probe into the missing journalist. Turkish officials say they believe Saudi agents killed and dismembered Khashoggi and say Turkey has audio and video recordings of it. He said the United States was working with Saudi Arabia and Turkey to figure out what happened. Saudi Arabia, if you're listening.

Saudi Arabia has repeatedly denied it has any hand in the fate of Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributing columnist who had been critical of the Saudi leadership.

Due to the seriousness of the case, the immunity generally accorded to diplomats "should be waived immediately", Michelle Bachelet said.

Journalist Jamal Khashoggi's body was cut into pieces after his death at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago, a Turkish source has told CNN and Al Jazeera.

"My assessment from these meetings is that there is serious commitment to determine all the facts and ensure accountability, including accountability for Saudi Arabia's senior leaders or senior officials", Pompeo said.

While Pompeo was in Riyadh, Trump said on Twitter that he had talked with the crown prince, the country's de facto leader, "who totally denied any knowledge of what took place in their Turkish consulate".

It's not like, 'Oh, I didn't agree with the call, they're going to pick it up.' They called it. "We've got to play better". Kaepernick also threw for over 400 yards during a regular-season game against the Packers .

Blaming Khashoggi's case on mistakes by lower-level personnel would allow the Saudi government to say it never sanctioned his disappearance, and could help to reduce worldwide outrage over the affair, a banker in the Gulf said. "Answers will be forthcoming shortly". I feel used and abused.

But during a 2015 campaign stop, Trump boasted about his business dealings with the Saudis.

Turkey said a 15-member team dispatched from Saudi Arabia played a role in the killing. "They buy apartments from me". "They're going to take that money and spend it in Russian Federation or China or someplace else". Am I supposed to dislike them? "I think he understands that very well".

Trump has threatened the kingdom with "severe punishment" if it is shown that Khashoggi was killed inside its Istanbul mission.

The secretary of state met King Salman, the powerful Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir in Riyadh.

These passport scans add to the information made public by Turkey as it seeks to fill out the narrative of what happened to Khashoggi, a Post contributor who vanished after entering the consulate to obtain a document he needed for his upcoming wedding.

Graham's comments, on Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends", underscored the apparent frustration by some in Congress about the 33-year-old crown prince and his crackdowns on dissent.

Saudi Arabia is preparing to say that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed by mistake during an interrogation gone awry, according to multiple reports.
