Saudi squad who came for Jamal Khashoggi included soldiers, royal guards

It's a very bad situation. "We expect a thorough investigation and total transparency from the Saudi authorities on what happened".

According to the Washington Post, prior to his disappearance, Khashoggi had been inundated with government job offers and protection if he would move back to his home country.

A bipartisan group of US senators is forcing the Trump administration to investigate the disappearance of a Saudi journalist, triggering a human rights probe that could result in sanctions against Saudi officials and entities. "We are demanding everything".

Paul introduced a resolution a year to stop arms sales to Saudi Arabia that received only 25 votes, he said. And frankly I think that that would be a very, very tough pill to swallow for our country. "I have to abide by whatever the courts decide", he said.

The move added pressure on close US ally Riyadh to provide more information on the whereabouts of the prominent critic of Saudi policies, whose disappearance has sparked global concern.

Trump said that he and First Lady Melania Trump were in contact with her and were looking to "bring her to the White House".

Writing in the American Conservative on October 9, right-wing journalist Daniel Larison was equally critical-saying, "The messages coming from the Trump Administration are scarcely better than boilerplate statements, and it shows that the administration has no interest in criticizing the Saudi government or in holding them accountable for their crime".

"If the Saudi government sent a bunch of people to kill him and chop him up and then they left, if that's what happened, I'm telling you what's gonna happen on Capitol Hill is a complete revolt against our policies with Saudi Arabia, ' said Rubio, adding that would be "unfortunate" because the Saudis are important partners when it comes to "containing" Iran's influence".

Vice President Mike Pence signals the USA may help investigate the disappearance of the Washington Post contributor and prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Erdogan challenged Saudi Arabia to provide CCTV images to back up its version that Khashoggi had left the consulate safely, indicating he did not find the current Saudi explanations sufficient.

Jimmy Butler has heated practice with Timberwolves
Richardson amassed 12.9 points, 2.9 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game previous year , and his contract is extremely team-friendly. It is unclear if Butler made his full-time return to the Timberwolves season or just proved a point of some kind in the practice.

Middle East Eye reported one of the suspects was head of the forensic department in Saudi General Security.

Whatever took place, Corker said, "there was Saudi involvement" and "everything points to them".

A human rights activist holds picture of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi during a protest outside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey October 9, 2018.

U.S. intelligence officials reportedly intercepted communications that the Saudis discussed a plan to lure and capture Khashoggi before his disappearance.

Prince Khalid bin Salman, the Saudi ambassador to Washington, denied reports that Riyadh had Khashoggi killed.

But the Post reported that the Saudis haven't presented any evidence he left the building and say that their video cameras weren't recording at the time.

Khashoggi left Saudi Arabia a year ago saying he feared retribution for his criticism of Riyadh over the Yemen war and its crackdown on dissent, and since then wrote columns for the Washington Post. "I miss my friends and family very much", he told me. "But I don't want to rush to judgment", Corker said on Tuesday.

Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday on conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt's show that the United States would send Federal Bureau of Investigation agents to the consulate to investigate if the Saudis requested it.

But on Wednesday, the State Department said the US had no advance knowledge of Khashoggi's disappearance.

Pro-government Turkish newspaper Sabah yesterday published the names and photographs of 15 nationals who flew in on the day of his disappearance.
