"I know the bloom is off the rose with the crown prince", Giuliani said.

Swaths of United States executives have declined to attend the Future Investment Initiative conference next week.

If there really were to be an worldwide backlash that led to investors pulling out, cutoff of substantial foreign investment in Saudi Arabia, Saudis, rich families, moving their money out of the country - which I understand is already happening at an accelerating rate - then those economic plans become even more hard to fulfill than they are in good times.

Virgin Hyperloop One, one iteration of Elon Musk's visionary Hyperloop transportation project, unveiled its first pod prototype earlier this year.

"I'm not giving cover at all", he said, adding that he would be getting a "full report" on the affair from Pompeo by the end of the week. There has been no such correction.

Two weeks after he disappeared, The Washington Post on Wednesday published what it said appears to be Jamal Khashoggi's final column, in which the missing Saudi journalist writes of the importance of a free press in the Arab world.

Khashoggi's disappearance has hurt the reputation of Saudi Arabia's crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, whose close relationship with US President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner has put him at the centre of the Administration's Middle East policy.

Prominent U.S. newspapers have reported, citing anonymous sources, that Saudi officials may soon acknowledge Khashoggi's slaying at the consulate but blame it on a botched intelligence operation.

Under growing pressure Saudi Arabia, a major buyer of U.S. weapons, has denied knowledge of the fate of Khashoggi who had lived in self-exile in the United States since a year ago.

Even if the president doesn't come round to that view, the White House's relationship may be indelibly altered by Khashoggi's death. I don't trust them one bit, ' " Saffuri said of Khashoggi's response.

"Hope we're going to be on the better side of the equation, you know we need Saudi Arabia in terms of our fight against all of the terrorism, everything that's happening in Iran and other places, but Iran's been the leader", Trump said.

Meghan said the koalas were "so, so sweet", while Harry reached out to pet one and asked about their diet and sleeping habits. They will "see first-hand the hardships local farmers are facing by visiting a local property".


Pompeo was also tight-lipped after meeting the Saudi leadership in Riyadh, telling journalists he did not want "to talk about any of the facts".

Turkish officials have said Khashoggi was murdered in the Saudis' Istanbul consulate, which Saudi officials have denied.

When CBS correspondent Errol Barnett spotted Kushner and his detail aboard a flight from Washington to New York Tuesday, he tried to question Kushner about Saudi Arabia.

Trump was defensive this week about the suggestion that his administration is trying to give the Saudis room to come up with a statement absolving Mohammed.

United States media and officials have called on Ankara to release the evidence, but the Turkish investigators have not done so yet.

Consul Otaibi left Istanbul on Tuesday for Riyadh ahead of a planned search of his residence as part of the official Turkish investigation.

Earlier on Tuesday, U.N. human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said the "inviolability or immunity" of people or premises granted under the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations "should be waived immediately".

The Saudi consul general reportedly is heard on tape saying, "Do this outside; you're going to get me in trouble".

Radio Sputnik's Loud and Clear spoke about the development of the affair with Thomas Lippmann, an award-winning journalist and author who has written about Middle Eastern affairs and U.S. foreign policy for more than 40 years, specializing in Saudi issues.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said his plans to attend an investment conference in Riyadh next week would be revisited on Thursday after U.S. officials have a chance to consult Pompeo.

How is Turkey's investigation progressing?
