Dem Rep Has 'Irresponsible' Theory: Jared Kushner Orchestrated Journalist's Death in Saudi Arabia Consulate

Saudi Arabia journalist: Nation claims vanished journalist 'died following brawl' | Daily Star

A Saudi official has told ABC News that Jamal Khashoggi was killed when he was "placed in a chokehold position" to prevent him from leaving the country's consulate in Turkey and calling for help.

Turkish government sources have claimed that Mr Khashoggi was tortured and murdered by a hit squad flown in from Riyadh. He changed his tone once again late this week, raising the prospect of sanctions against Riyadh.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said in a statement issued Saturday night that the Saudis' "explanations" of the killing of Jamal Khashoggi "lack consistency and credibility".

This image taken from CCTV video obtained by the Turkish broadcaster TRT World and made available on Sunday purportedly shows Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, as he is allowed to pass barriers blocking the road leading to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018.

However, he has pushed back again any effort to cancel the mega Dollars 110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia asserting that such a move will hurt United States economy and jobs.

'And so, we've got to figure out a way to have a nuanced response to this situation.

He added that Saudi officials do not know the whereabouts of Mr Khashoggi's remains. "We're getting a lot of information in as we speak", he said. The fact that Khashoggi was a journalist shouldn't make the killing any more - or less - tragic, even if he did work as a high priest for one of the cathedrals of media: the Washington Post.

Mr Al-Jubeir echoed President Donald Trump's warnings against rushing to judgment against Saudi leaders, saying "there is the presumption of innocence until proven guilty", and that some have "turned that upside down".

The crown prince had no knowledge of the specific operation that resulted in Khashoggi's death, a Saudi official familiar with the Saudi investigation said.

Responding to a question, the U.S. president indicated that he would let the Congressmen take lead on the issue of particularly determining the action that needs to be taken against Saudi Arabia. The Saudi statements on Saturday did not address what happened to the body. But the prince himself, protected by his 82-year-old father, King Salman, has been tapped to lead a panel to reform the kingdom's intelligence services, a sign he will remain next in line to the throne.

A number of Saudi nationals have since been arrested while deputy intelligence chief Ahmad al-Assiri and Saud al-Qahtani, a senior aide to the Crown Prince, have been dismissed, state TV reported.

Asked by the Press Association if he agreed with Mr Trump on the credibility point, Mr Williamson said the United Kingdom was looking very closely at the information that had been released and was "obviously talking with allies".

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California said Saudi Arabia's claim that Khashoggi died in a brawl wasn't credible.

And it happened, and I hate to tell you, over the last 18 months and we're now the biggest in the world, Trump said.
