McCain: US should expel Turkey envoy over bodyguard violence

McCain: US should expel Turkey envoy over bodyguard violence

Maybe Mr. Trump should consider building a wall around the Turkish ambassador's home in Washington where the real trouble seems to be, not along the U.S.

The Turkish Embassy in the USA blamed the violence on the protesters, who included Kurds, a minority group with tensions with the Turkish government.

'We are communicating our concern to the Turkish government in the strongest possible terms, ' said Heather Nauert, a State Department spokeswoman.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose name Donald Trump doesn't know how to pronounce, met with POTUS in Washington on Tuesday, presumably to swap stories about their mutual friend Michael Flynn.

Using noise isolation techniques, Ferad says that the words "dalın diyor, servet abi dalın diyor" can be heard coming from the presidential guard just after Erdogan is seen speaking with his bodyguard.

Nine people were injured, one severely, and two were arrested, apparently one from the pro-Kurd side and one from the pro-Erdogan side. "It would be beneficial for this person to change", Cavusoglu said, referring to McGurk, adding that Turkey "would not meddle in the domestic issues of another country".

While the United States has repeatedly asserted that there is no evidence linking Gulen to the coup attempt, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has raided Hizmet charter schools for information pertaining to accusations of misuse of taxpayer funding.

The Turkish Embassy yesterday released a statement on the violence.

While GOP, Democrats applaud Mueller, Trump tweets
And finally, on Wednesday, Rosenstein appointed a special counsel, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, to lead the investigation. You might remember President Trump fired the last head of the investigation and previous FBI director James Comey on May 9.

Attacking the small group of protesters with their fists and feet, men in dark suits and others were recorded repeatedly kicking one woman as she lay curled on a sidewalk.

Shortly afterward, chaos begins, which the police in D.C. said was a "brutal attack on peace protesters" by a member of Erdogan's security detail.

"The conduct of Turkish security personnel earlier this week is deeply disturbing", the official said.

"Violence is never an appropriate response to free speech, and we support the rights of people everywhere to free expression and peaceful protest", the statement read.

Now while Chief Newsham vows to pursue the culprits involved, it is likely that some of them were en route back to Turkey that evening. "We are telling you this now in advance", he said. "We will take such a step and we won't discuss it or consult with anyone".

The US State Department slammed the violence in a statement as inappropriate, saying the rights of people to freedom of speech and peaceful protest should be respected.

The Trump administration hasn't commented on the violence, which was videotaped.

"We have long supported Turkey as a member of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and a key USA ally in the region, and we expect conduct more appropriate to our decades-long partnership". "We respect those concerns, and continue regular consultations with our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally on this and other topics of mutual importance".
