Dem Rep Has 'Irresponsible' Theory: Jared Kushner Orchestrated Journalist's Death in Saudi Arabia Consulate

However, he has pushed back again any effort to cancel the mega Dollars 110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia asserting that such a move will hurt United States economy and jobs.

The United States could impose sanctions on the Crown Prince if he was found culpable in the killing but there should also be a collective response with European allies who are looking to Washington for leadership, given that many sell arms and do business with Saudi Arabia, he said.

Senior aides close to the prince have been fired over Khashoggi's killing, and 18 suspects have been arrested. "I am going to go there and meet with my counterparts and continue to focus on what's in the Treasury's domain, as it relates to this issue".

"If Khashoggi was fighting inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, he was fighting for his life with people sent to capture or kill him", said Mr Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee.

Khashoggi's disappearance "drew the attention of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at the highest levels, and due to the circumstances surrounding his disappearance, the Kingdom took the necessary procedures to clarify the truth and began by dispatching a security team to Turkey on 6 October 2018 to investigate and cooperate with counterparts in Turkey", SPA said.

A spokesman for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's ruling party vowed Saturday that Turkey would "uncover what has happened" to Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, hours after Saudi authorities said that the Washington Post contributing columnist had been killed earlier this month during a fistfight inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

The king has the authority to change the line of succession - as he did when he appointed his son crown prince in the first place, upending the previous royal consensus. "That is not the focus of my trip".

S., which had already moved its embassy to Jerusalem. "I have made this decision without any reference to the United States". Israel regards all of the city, including the eastern sector that it annexed after the 1967 Middle East war, as its capital.

On the day of his disappearance, 15 other Saudis, including several officials, arrived in Istanbul on two planes and visited the consulate while Khashoggi was still inside, according to Turkish police sources.

"Saudi Arabia has been a great ally".

He said in Arizona that he would work with Congress on next moves, but "I would prefer that we don't use as retribution cancelling $110 billion worth of work, which means 600,000 jobs. we need them as a counterbalance to Iran".

The Saudi stock market is down about 4 percent since Khashoggi disappeared on Oct 2. The existence of such evidence has been reported in Turkish media in a series of leaks, though Turkish officials have yet to confirm they have recordings. Eighteen Saudi nationals had been arrested, the prosecutor said in a statement.

After speaking with Saudi Arabia's King Salman, President Trump suggested that Khashoggi was targeted by "rogue killers".

Officials initially insisted Mr. Khashoggi had walked out of the.

Trump's attempt to distance himself from profiting from Saudi Arabia is undercut by a long record showing deals his companies made with that country's government and citizens, media reports said.
