Trump 'demanding' answers on Khashoggi

In a Fox News interview, Trump said USA investigators were working with both Ankara and Riyadh to probe the suspicious disappearance in Turkey of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Although this incident could potentially fuel a political crisis between the two nations, let us not lose sight of the human aspect of what happened.

"It's a very sad situation, this is a bad situation", Trump said.

A group of Republican and Democrat senators united to demand an investigation into the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at a consulate in Turkey. "It's a very serious situation for us".

According to the Post, the intelligence about Saudi Arabia's earlier plans to detain Khashoggi have also raised questions about whether the Trump administration should have warned Khashoggi he might be in danger.

"We request that you make a determination on the imposition of sanctions pursuant to the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act", they added.

"We can not let this happen to reporters, to anybody", Mr Trump said on Wednesday, adding: "We're demanding everything".

Trump told reporters he had talked with officials in Saudi Arabia "at the highest level" about Khashoggi's disappearance, but offered no indication on his whereabouts.

The footage shows some of the Saudis leaving a hotel and Khashoggi entering the consulate, walking past a black Mercedes van with diplomatic plates parked adjacent to the entrance. "The intelligence reports are very direct, very short and give further credence to the fact that the focus needs to be on Saudi Arabia right now", Corker said.

A source told the Washington Post that United States intelligence "intercepted communications of Saudi officials discussing a plan to capture him".

The Times adds that "media reports have cited Turkish investigators as saying they believe he was killed soon after entering the building and his corpse cut to pieces and disposed of by an elite Saudi security team".

The Washington Post reported that U.S. intelligence had intercepted communications of Saudi plans to kidnap Khashoggi, a critic of the kingdom and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who fled into exile past year.

Trump made Saudi Arabia the first stop on his first foreign trip as president in May 2017, but in recent weeks has appeared to sour a bit on Riyadh, complaining directly to King Salman about the cost of American support for the Saudi military and for OPEC oil price increases. They said at the weekend they believed Mr Khashoggi was killed by a team sent to Istanbul and thought to consist of 15 Saudis.

Khashoggi, a Virginia-based critic of bin Salman's policies, entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, last week for some paperwork regarding his divorce, but he never exited the mission.

"White House National Security Advisor, Ambassador John Bolton, and White House Senior Advisor, Jared Kushner, spoke to Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman yesterday about the missing Washington Post journalist", she said on October 10. "We will probably know in the very short future". Among them was a forensics expert, it says.

The sponsors of a major Saudi investor event to be held in Riyadh later this month are facing calls to end their involvement in the conference after allegations of the kingdom's connection to the disappearance and possible death of the dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
