Fox & Friends Presses Trump on Saudi Journalist Jamal Khashoggi

Khashoggi case should not be politicized, says UN expert

A United Nations human rights expert has said the investigation into the disappearance of a Saudi journalist in Turkey "should not be politicized", insisting the case has created a dilemma for the Turkish government.

Pence's comments come as Turkey accused Saudi Arabia of sending a 15 person team to assassinate the journalist.

Khashoggi, who had been living in self-imposed exile for the past year, vanished on October 2, after he entered the consulate to obtain a document.

"Is it possible for there to be no camera systems at the Saudi Arabia consulate, where the event took place?", Erdogan said.

On Trump's first trip overseas as president, he visited Saudi Arabia and announced the massive arms sales package. They said at the weekend they believed Mr Khashoggi was killed by a team sent to Istanbul and thought to consist of 15 Saudis.

He had entered a Saudi consulate in the Turkish city of Istanbul to get marriage paperwork as his fiancee waited outside and hasn't been seen since.

The Sabah newspaper, which is close to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, published images of what it referred to as the "assassination squad" apparently taken at passport control. "Saudi Arabia, I get along with all of them", he said in 2015 on the campaign trail.

"We want to find out what happened", Trump said.

Asked about suggestions that Washington should consider blocking further arms sales to Saudi Arabia, Trump told Fox that would hurt U.S.jobs.

"We don't know what has happened to him".

Tropical Storm Michael Will Become a Hurricane Monday
It has the potential to undergo rapid intensification when it enters the Gulf before turning northeast towards Florida. Michael, moving toward the US Gulf Coast, is now a Category 1 hurricane , the National Hurricane Center said .

The Associated Press could not confirm that report, but a US -based friend of Khashoggi said the journalist had told him he had received a call from an adviser to the Saudi royal court in late May or early June urging him to return to his homeland. There are also reports that Turkish intelligence is in possession of a video showing Khashoggi's murder.

It was not clear, the report said, whether the Saudis meant to arrest and interrogate Mr. Khashoggi or to kill him, or if the US officials warned Mr. Khashoggi that he was a target.

President Donald Trump has expressed reservations over calls to withhold further USA arms sales to Saudi Arabia as the us looks into the fate of a Saudi writer missing and feared murdered by his own government.

Corker said that sanctions could "absolutely" target Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in an interview that followed.

The Spectator reported claims that Mr Khashoggi had been offered a role as an adviser if he returned to Saudi Arabia but had declined because of "moral and religious" principles.

As CBS News correspondent Holly Williams reports, a U.S. State Department spokesperson has denied the U.S. had any prior knowledge of a plot against Khashoggi.

"I also urge Saudi Arabia, especially King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to show the same level of sensitivity and release CCTV footage from the consulate", Cengiz wrote.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said it's looking more and more likely that Saudi Arabia killed a journalist who has been missing since last week. He has said he spoke with the Saudis about what he called a "bad situation", and also said the United States was working "very closely" with Turkey. He said if Saudi Arabia isn't telling the truth about Khashoggi, then "why would we believe them that they are not intentionally hitting civilians inside Yemen?"

In an op-ed in the Washington Post on Tuesday, she implored the president and his wife to "help shed light on Jamal's disappearance". According to some reports, Ankara is considering the options of recalling its ambassador from Riyadh and expelling the Saudi envoy if the Saudis fail to provide a satisfactory explanation on Khashoggi's fate "within several days". The newspaper also quoted an unidentified senior Turkish official as saying the Saudis weren't allowing a proper investigation in the consulate.
