Saudi Arabia preparing to admit Khashoggi was killed

Trump sent Pompeo to meet with the Saudi king in Riyadh on Monday and said Pompeo may travel to Turkey as well. They also claim an audio recording captured moments of his "interrogation, torture, and killing", a Turkish newspaper reported.

An exclusive source of The New Khaleej confirmed that a Saudi assassination group of Al-Saif Al-Ajrab Battalion, which is directly affiliated to the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, had killed Khashoggi.

Asked when the public prosecutor could make an announcement, the official said: "He was instructed to work quickly".

"Turkey doesn't want to damage the relations with Saudi Arabia, but on the other hand it doesn't want to - if he was killed - let this barbaric crime stay unpunished", stated Turkish foreign policy analyst Ozcan Tikit.

Khashoggi, who has been critical of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has not been seen since he visited the Saudi consulate two weeks to get documents he needed to get married.

Citing two unidentified sources, CNN reported on Monday that Saudi Arabia was preparing a report that would acknowledge Khashoggi was killed as the result of an interrogation that went wrong.

Saudi Arabia has pledged to economically retaliate for any USA punitive action.

One source cautioned that the report was still being prepared and could change, CNN said.

A key USA lawmaker, Republican Senator Marco Rubio, told CNN on Sunday that if Saudi agents "went medieval" on Khashoggi, "that would be an outrage". The affair has created a diplomatic rift between Saudi Arabia and the West and led to global firms pulling out of a high-profile summit in Riyadh. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has twice visited the president in the Oval Office, most recently in March to kick off a glitzy investment tour of the USA that included stops on Wall Street and Hollywood.

Members of Khashoggi's family called for an investigation, in a statement released on Monday. "He said that they are working closely with Turkey to find answer".

Jordan went on to suggest it's "quite possible" King Salman didn't know of Khashoggi's attack. Permission for that apparently came after a late Sunday night call between Saudi King Salman and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

As of Monday morning, Mnuchin was still moving forward with plans to attend the Future Investment Initiative even as top bank executives and investors have withdrawn over the disappearance of dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to a person familiar with the trip. CNN reports saw investigators, including forensics officers, enter the building, where they stayed for nine hours before leaving.

Former Director of the CIA, John O. Brennan, stated that that the reasons for the Saudi leadership's denials of involvement in the case of Jamal Khashoggi is meaningless.

Earlier Monday, a cleaning crew with mops, trash bags and what appeared to be bottles of bleach walked in past waiting journalists.
