"We don't have any information on that", State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters Tuesday.

A Turkish security source had previously told Reuters that a group of 15 Saudi nationals, including some officials, arrived in Istanbul and entered the consulate on October 2, the same day Khashoggi was there, and later left the country.

Senator Jeanne Shaheen said on Wednesday U.S. lawmakers must send a strong message to both the Saudis and the White House that Khashoggi's disappearance was "totally unacceptable".

Riyadh has insisted Mr Khashoggi, 59, left the building alive and murder claims are "baseless". Bob Corker of Tennessee that they "only livestream their tapes". Saudi officials maintain he left the consulate shortly after entering, although it has failed to provide evidence to support that.

Economist and citizen-journalist Essam al-Zamel was also put on trial this month for criticising the Saudi government's economic strategy in a series of tweets and reports.

Turkish officials suspect Khashoggi, a Saudi exile who has written columns about the kingdom for the Washington Post, was murdered after arriving at his nation's consulate in the country's capital.

US intelligence intercepted communications between Saudi officials discussing a plan to capture journalist Jamal Khashoggi prior to his disappearance last week in Turkey in a case now roiling global investigators and threatening to damage relations between Washington and Riyadh. The Post's source added it was unclear how the Saudi's planned on handling Khashoggi after receiving him or if the U.S. warned him that he was targeted.

Iran was exporting between 2.5 and 2.7 million bpd in April before the United States announced the return of sanctions. And we want to get to the bottom of it. "They don't know over there", he said, although it's unclear if he meant the Saudis did not know or if Turkish authorities who are investigating still do not know.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker said that he told the Saudi ambassador the Khashoggi's disappearance could lead the USA to curtail arms sales to the kingdom.

"I've never been more disturbed than I am right now", said Sen. As an individual who believes that life and death are in the hands of God, I pray to God alone for Jamal's safe return.

"And so to me it feels very much like some nefarious activity has occurred by them", Corker added, according to The Beast.

The fact that the Saudis under MBS, with Trump and Kushner's encouragement, can target an Establishment, non-dissident, ex-govt, mildly-critical-of-MBS Saudi public figure in this brutal & brazen way speaks volumes about what they think they can get away with - and do! He is an outspoken critic of Saudi Arabia who has dared to defy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom's de facto ruler.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also spoke with the crown prince "to reiterate the United States request for information", Sanders said.

Officials also say they had become aware that Khashoggi may have been kidnapped before the second plane had departed, and monitored seven Saudis in a waiting room as they checked their luggage for a second time.

Ankara backed Doha in denying the charges, instead accusing Saudi Arabia and its allies of using the pretext of terrorism allegations to suppress dissent at home.

The Senate "barely" approved the last round of arms sales, Corker said he told Prince Khalid bin Salman. However, he has not been seen for more than a week, and the only closed-circuit television footage that's been released shows him entering the building but not departing.
