The US Heard Saudis Talk About Capturing Khashoggi

  • Khashoggi case should not be politicized, says UN expert

The New York Times reported that Turkish officials believe Kashoggi was killed inside the consulate, at the orders of Saudi Arabia's leadership. The senators indicated there are reasons to believe Khashoggi has suffered such abuse. You know, we have to see what happens. At this time, I implore President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump to help shed light on Jamal's disappearance.

The journalist fled Saudi Arabia and lived in self-imposed exile in the United States, after he grew more critical of Mohammed bin Salman for the war in Yemen and the crown prince's crackdown of dissent in the kingdom.

"MBS is a person of the future".

An unnamed source told the Washington Post that before Khashoggi disappeared, USA intelligence had already intercepted communications of Saudi officials discussing a plan to capture Khashoggi. We're looking at it very strongly. All we needed was a piece of paper. Jamal had applied for USA citizenship, and his reason to visit to Turkey was our intended marriage. It's my hope that it doesn't lead to the top. His disappearance - and suspected murder - threatens to unleash a "bipartisan tsunami", as Washington, D.C., lawmakers digging for the truth are confronted with evidence indicating the possibility of a Saudi-sanctioned hit.

The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that us intelligence had intercepted the communications of Saudi officials discussing a plan to capture Khashoggi, citing an unidentified person familiar with the information.

"The recent disappearance of Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi suggests that he could be a victim of a gross violation of internationally recognised human rights", the letter stated.

The Post has obtained video of the areas surrounding the consulate that purportedly shows when Khashoggi arrived at the consulate, as well as the movements of vehicles leaving the consulate two hours later. "I've told them they have to pay for their military".

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.

Corker said that sanctions could "absolutely" target Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in an interview that followed. "We want to find out what happened".

Turkish officials fear Khashoggi was killed by the Saudis after he walked into the consulate, though they haven't offered any evidence to support that.

Since 2009, the executive branch has notified Congress of proposed foreign military sales to Saudi Arabia of major defense articles and services with a potential aggregate value of almost $139 billion, according to a Congressional Research Service report.

Former U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said he has suspended his role on the board of Saudi Arabia's planned mega city NEOM until more is known about Khashoggi. Demanding an explanation on Khashoggi's fate "does not amount to enmity" against Saudi Arabia, he wrote. Mr. Trump said that taking such a significant move against the kingdom "would be hurting us".

Khashoggi, journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, has been missing since he entered the consulate in Istanbul on October 2. But senior members of Congress with access to USA intelligence reporting feared the worst.

Saudi royal guards, intelligence officers, soldiers and an autopsy expert were part of a 15-member team from the kingdom that targeted missing writer, local Turkish media reported. "So, everything we did to Putin, I want to do to Saudi Arabia". Saudi Arabia still insists it's all baseless. Human rights activists are pressuring other media operations and corporate participants to withdraw from the conference to protest Khashoggi's disappearance.

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.
