Trump promises 'severe punishment' if Saudis killed journalist

Companies cut ties with Saudi Arabia over Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance

The journalist had given his phones to his fiancée before entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

"It's clear, we can not have an ally who murders in cold blood, in their own consulate, a critic, a dissident, that is unacceptable", Sanders said.

Kudlow said Sunday as to whether Mnuchin would go forward with the trip, "Again, along with the president and the general investigation, Mr. Mnuchin will make up his mind as the week progresses and as new information surfaces", Kudlow said on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos".

Witt then turned to Trump's slow response to reports of Saudi involvement in Khashoggi's death.

However, on its website, Apple does not list fingerprint verification as one of the Apple Watch's capabilities.

Turkish security units analysed how Khashoggi's reported killing unfolded with the use of a translator, according to Sabah. They've also alleged that they have video of the slaying, but not explained how they have it.

Melania Trump Says Rumors of Donald Trump Cheating Are Just Gossip
Do you think it's good that Melania has finally spoken out in her own defence? It was unclear who was the target of that message. Her assertion came in an attempt to void a nondisclosure agreement she signed just weeks before the 2016 presidential election.

Hatice Cengiz is a doctoral student in Istanbul, the same city where Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi consulate to get needed paperwork so the pair could Wednesday.

The Vermont independent senator Bernie Sanders on Sunday said the U.S. should withdraw support from the Saudi-led war in Yemen. It echoes how Russian Federation has described the men who allegedly carried out the Novichok nerve agent poisonings in England in March.

John Brennan, the former Central Intelligence Agency director who previously served as a Central Intelligence Agency station chief in Saudi Arabia, said Sunday during an appearance on "Meet the Press" that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has become "emboldened" to be more aggressive by his relationship with Trump and Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and a top White House aide.

The Crown Prince has launched a series of social reforms in Saudi Arabia, including allowing women to drive.

In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman, Steffen Seibert, said Berlin was also "very concerned" about the writer's disappearance and called on Saudi Arabia to "participate fully" in clearing up reports that he had been killed.

Trump, who's attacked the press as the "enemy of the people", says "there's a lot of stake, and maybe especially so because this man was a reporter".

Rice also said her family "goes back generations" in ME and that she's owned a home in the state for the last 20 years. Ho said she plans to collect signatures on the letter this week and submit the nomination October 14.

Donald Trump has been under growing pressure from both sides of Congress to take tough action against Saudi Arabia if Riyadh was found to be behind the murder of the journalist who was well-known and liked at Capitol Hill. "In the not too distant future I think we'll know an answer", Trump tells Stahl.

Hatice Cengiz, the fiancée to the Saudi journalist who has been missing for almost two weeks, has written an obituary-style op-ed on Jamal Khashoggi, which was published Saturday by the New York Times.

No details of the conversation were released.

In an interview last Friday, Khashoggi's fiancee Cengiz said he was not nervous when he entered the consulate to obtain paperwork required for their marriage. "I am planning on going at this point". Turkish authorities suspect he was killed.

She said investigators were examining his cellphones, which he had left with her.

The Kingdom "is committed to its principles, rules and traditions and is in compliance with worldwide laws and conventions", he added according to the official Saudi Press Agency. The president cited the effects such action may have on American businesses.
