Istanbul prosecutor seeks arrest of Saudi officials over Khashoggi killing

US senators convinced of Saudi crown prince’s role in Khashoggi murder

Saudi authorities say the agents who killed Khashoggi exceeded their authority.

"I talked directly to the prince in Buenos Aires, telling him that we need better answers on what happened to Khashoggi and who is responsible for it", he said.
Graham, who's proven to be a staunch Trump supporter as of late, goes as far to say that he and his party members were purposefully mislead by Mike Pompeo and Jim Mattis, who had previously said there was no "smoking gun".

Trump ally and fellow Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said the "crazy" crown prince was "complicit in the murder of Mr Khashoggi to the highest level possible".

We will remind, Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi meant to kill at country Villa, set in Barren, not at the Consulate in Istanbul.

According to the Istanbul prosecutor, Khashoggi was strangled to death after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 and his body was then dismembered and destroyed.

Trudeau met the Saudi prince while at the G20 summit in Argentina.

"If the Saudi government is going to be in the hands of this man for a long time to come, I find it very hard to be able to do business, because I think he's insane, I think he is unsafe", he said.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said Tuesday that senators are trying to figure out how to amend the resolution, which directs the president to remove most US armed forces from hostilities affecting Yemen.

"You have to be wilfully blind not to come to the conclusion that this was orchestrated and organized by people under the command of MbS", Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters after the meeting with Central Intelligence Agency Director Gina Haspel, referring to the crown prince by his initials.

Many Democrats want a "straight up or down vote" on a war powers resolution to end all USA support for the Saudi coalition in Yemen, without amendments. "I'm not going to blow past this", he said.

Democrats provided similar reactions after the briefing, which was provided to leaders of Senate committees that focus on national security.

In a column for The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, Graham wrote that the killing and other moves by the Saudi regime showed "astounding arrogance entitlement" and disregard for worldwide norms.

President Trump has equivocated about assigning blame for Khashoggi's killing, frustrating lawmakers from both parties.

The visit comes "without any consideration of principles and values and without taking into consideration Algeria's reputation and its real, firm and permanent interests", he added.

"Now, the question is, how do you separate the Saudi crown prince and his group from the nation itself", he said. About his disappearance became known after he, along with the bride called for the building of the Consulate of Saudi Arabia.
