WaPo: Saudi Prince Ordered Operation to Lure Khashoggi to Saudi Arabia

Khashoggi case should not be politicized, says UN expert

Two senior Turkish officials said on Wednesday that Khashoggi was wearing an Apple Watch when he entered the Saudi diplomatic mission and that the object was connected to a mobile phone he left outside the mission.

Asked in a telephone interview with Fox News Channel late on Wednesday whether Saudis were responsible for Khashoggi's disappearance or death, Trump said: "I guess you would have to say so far it's looking a little bit like that and we're going to have to see".

"We can not let this happen - to reporters, to anybody", he added during the Oval Office meeting with the Secretary of Homeland Security and Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator. "We are demanding everything". "We want to see what's going on".

"Fox & Friends" hosts (from left) Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade spoke with President Donald Trump on October 11 about Khashoggi and U.S. -Saudi relations. His Turkish fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, who was waiting outside, said he never reappeared. He went in and doesn't look like he came out.

Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday on conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt's show that the United States would send Federal Bureau of Investigation agents to the consulate to investigate if the Saudis requested it. "This is a bad situation".

"Nobody knows what happened yet". "We have jobs, we have a lot of things happening in this country".

Trump said he had talked "more than once" and "at the highest levels" to partners in Saudi Arabia, which is one of Washington's closest allies and a key market for the U.S. weapons industry.

The Khashoggi incident might make it very hard for the Trump administration to win congressional approval for arms sales to the Saudis.

"I'm not happy about it", Trump said of Khashoggi's disappearance.

Vice President Mike Pence expressed fresh concern Wednesday over the case Wednesday, saying "violence against journalists should be condemned" and that the US may be prepared to send Federal Bureau of Investigation officials to help investigate the case.

There's been a long history of close U.S. -Saudi relations, and those have intensified under Trump.

The identity and the roles that most or all of them held in the Saudi government or security services are now known to the Turkish officials.

How could Hurricane Michael impact Durham?
Rick Scott says Hurricane Michael is a "monstrous storm" that has the potential to be devastating to the Florida Panhandle. The hurricane warning stretches from Pensacola, Fla., eastward to near Cedar Key in the bend of Florida Panhandle.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed Trump's comments about the ongoing talks between the two countries over the issue. I've told the king, King Salman, 'Sorry. According to CNN's Manu Raju, Corker said he was told that no such video exists, because the security feed only provides a live feed, with no recordings made.

There are fears that Jamal Khashoggi, who's contributed columns to The Washington Post, has been murdered.

On Trump's first trip overseas as president, he visited Saudi Arabia and announced the massive arms sales package. Yet Jamal did not think the Saudis could force him to stay at the consulate in Turkey, even if they wanted to arrest him.

"It is like 'Pulp Fiction, '" the official said.

"Jamal is a Saudi citizen who went missing after leaving the Consulate", the ambassador said in a statement.

A source told the Post that prior to Khashoggi going missing, US intelligence intercepted Saudi officials' communications, which revealed a plan to capture Khashoggi and get him to Saudi Arabia.

But State Department deputy spokesman Robert Palladino told reporters they had no such tip.

In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said that the Saudi ambassador to the US was traveling to Saudi Arabia, and that the USA expects him to provide information about the Khashoggi case when he returns.

Paul also brought up the Saudi military intervention in the civil war in Yemen, saying that Riyadh has been "bombing civilians" in the neighboring country "for over a year now" and that Khashoggi's disappearance just adds to the anger directed at Saudi Arabia.

"If a bird flew, or a fly or a mosquito appeared, the systems would capture this; they [Saudi Arabia] have the most cutting-edge systems", Hurriyet quoted him as saying. "But I don't want to rush to judgment", Corker said on Tuesday.

Khashoggi had been living in self-imposed exile in the USA since a year ago. The 15 departed at four different times, Sabah reported.
