Audio recordings indicate torture, dismemberment of Saudi journalist

Jared Kushner Faces Scrutiny For His Ties To The Saudi Crown Prince

Last night, Donald Trump said the United States had asked Turkey for the recording and expected to know what happened to Mr Khashoggi "by the end of the week".

Pompeo offered his assessment after talks with the Saudi leadership and said the Crown Prince denied any knowledge of what happened to Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. "I'm not giving cover at all".

Earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo expressed confidence that the Saudi government could be trusted to investigate the disappearance and suspected murder of a US-based Saudi journalist in the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul - despite the likelihood that senior Saudi officials were involved.

"But I rely on them", he said.

"I'll have a full report on that from Mike (Pompeo) when he comes back ..." "You are going to get me in trouble".

Trump has resisted intensifying calls to condemn the regime and instead defended Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from the charges and emphasized that Khashoggi - a Virginia resident - isn't a U.S. citizen.

The Turkish daily Yeni Safak earlier reported that Turkey has audio recordings that could reveal the details of what happened to Khashoggi after he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2, noting that he had been tortured during an interrogation, with his fingers cut off.

In Turkey on Tuesday, a high-level Turkish official told the AP that police investigators searching the Saudi Consulate had found evidence that Khashoggi was killed there.

The day before the authorities reportedly failed to search the Saudi Consul-General's residence amid the ongoing investigation into the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. "I have to find out what happened", he said. Pompeo also met on Tuesday with Saudi King Salman over the disappearance and alleged slaying of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi, who vanished two weeks ago during a visit to the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

"Three others are linked by witnesses and other records to the Saudi crown prince's security detail".

Asked whether he'd instructed the FBI to investigate the case, Trump responded: "I'm not going to tell you".

The case of Khashoggi, a journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, has become a major source of tension between Saudi Arabia and the West.

"Well, he wasn't a citizen of this country, for one thing", Trump replied. "Now we would wait and see", he told reporters.

Saudi officials have not responded to repeated requests for comment from the AP in recent days, including Wednesday. A State Department spokeswoman confirmed that Pompeo had not heard any audio recording purporting to indicate Khashoggi was killed.

The U.S. diplomat also admitted that the United States and Saudi Arabia "have many overlapping interests" and "are trying to achieve important things around the world".

Many newspaper headlines and cable news stories today led off with the charge that Trump personally benefits from Saudi money and has been reluctant to criticize Prince Salman because of it.

Shortly thereafter, media reported that Riyadh would recognize that an interrogation of the journalist went wrong.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin plans to attend an investment conference in Riyadh next week known as "Davos in the desert." even as IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde and Societe Generale CEO Frederic Oudea joined a growing list of executives who have pulled out.

Mutreb has been photographed emerging from planes with Crown Prince Mohamed on recent trips to Madrid and Paris, the newspaper reported.
