Melania Trump Wants to 'Get to Bottom' of Missing Saudi Journalist

Turkish newspaper names 15 Saudis in case of missing reporter

Trump, who took his first overseas trip as USA president to the kingdom and whose son-in-law Jared Kushner has close ties to Prince Mohammed, said he had not yet talked to the Saudis about Khashoggi.

The New York Times referenced two sources with knowledge of the investigation as saying a 15-member delegation of men which arrived from Saudi Arabia was waiting for Khashoggi when he entered the consulate.

Turkish authorities have privately said they believe Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate, a startling allegation that is firmly denied by the Saudis.

Saudi Arabia says it rejects any "threats" of economic sanctions or political pressure after Trump's comments on the disappearance of Khashoggi, adding that if it "receives any action, it will respond with greater action".

"We can not let this happen to reporters, to anybody", Mr Trump said on Wednesday. I don't want to lose an order like that.

"What you do have evidence of is that the Saudis have been bombing civilians in Yemen for over a year now", he said.

Man United Considering January Move For Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Zlatan scored 29 goals in 53 appearances for United, but 28 of those came in his first season before it was curtailed by a serious knee injury suffered in the Europa League.

The newspaper said authorities recovered the audio from Khashoggi's iPhone and his iCloud account. Among them was a forensics expert, it says.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo then had a follow-up call with the crown prince to reiterate the USA request for information and a thorough, transparent investigation. As chair of the subcommittee on appropriations handling USA foreign assistance, he had voted in favor of a $500 million arms sale to Saudi Arabia in 2017.

In an article for the Washington Post, Ms Cengiz pleaded with Mr Trump and his wife Melania to "help shed light" on the disappearance of her partner.

Jamal Khashoggi went to the Saudi consulate on October 2 for routine paperwork and never emerged, with Turkish press claiming the journalist was either kidnapped or murdered inside the consulate.

President Trump said Wednesday that he has spoken to the Saudi government "at the highest levels" about the situation.

Jamal Khashoggi, a columnist for the Washington Post, was last seen entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2, and fears have grown that he has been killed.

US Pastor Andrew Brunson Released, Allowed to Leave Turkey
A United States pastor has left Turkey after more than two years in detention in a case that badly strained ties with the US. The pastor, who is originally from Black Mountain, North Carolina, led a small congregation in the Izmir Resurrection Church.

Turan Kislakci, a friend of Khashoggi and the head of the Turkish-Arab Media Association, said that Turkish officials said the journalist has been brutally murdered.

"The Saudis have a lot of explaining to do because all indications are that they have been involved at minimum with his disappearance", Corker told AP.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also spoke to the crown prince to reiterate the US' request for information, Sanders said.

In a heartbreaking open letter, Hatice Cengzi pleads with the Trumps to intervene in the disappearance of the renowned newsman in Saudi Arabia.

The release had further said the "baseless allegations" levelled against Saudi Arabia were "lies" and further mentioned that the state is "committed to its principles, rules and traditions and is in compliance with worldwide laws and conventions".

If confirmed, it would offer proof that the Saudi government was attempting to silence Mr Khashoggi.

Trump claims Kavanaugh 'proven innocent' of sexual assault allegations
Kavanaugh can be expected to cast crucial votes on those issues as well as gun control, immigration, voting rights and others. Police barricades were up in front of the court, but the few protesters congregated near the garage where the justices enter.

Khashoggi had written a series of columns for the Washington Post that were critical of Saudi Arabia's assertive Prince Mohammed, who has led a widely publicised drive to reform the conservative Sunni monarchy but has also presided over the arrests of activists and businessmen.
