MSNBC Host Suggests Saudis Are Bribing Trump So They Can Assassinate Critics

Global pressure has mounted on close US ally Saudi Arabia over the whereabouts of Khashoggi, a prominent critic of Saudi policies who entered the consulate on October 2 to get documents for his planned marriage.

CCTV released by Turkish TV showed a man believed to be Mr Khashoggi enter the consulate as well as a vehicle entering and leaving the building after he went inside. Trying to stay calm, I immediately called Yasin Aktay, an adviser to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and one of Jamal's oldest friends.

The Kentucky senator said that while there "may not be proof" yet that the Saudis had killed Khashoggi, there is still "enough to indicate that they were involved" in his disappearance.

According to the Post, the intelligence pointing to a plan to detain Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia has fueled speculation what actually transpired at the consulate was a plan to detain Khashoggi that went wrong.

US intelligence intercepts of Saudi officials suggested that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was behind the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi and that Khashoggi may have been killed during a botched kidnapping attempt.

Meanwhile, Trump told reporters in the Oval Office that he has a call in to Khashoggi's fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, who has appealed to the president and first lady Melania Trump for help. Bob Corker and Lindsey Graham and Democratic Sens.

Prosecutors are investigating the incident, while the consulate said on Twitter it is working in coordination with Turkish authorities. The security establishment concluded that Khashoggi's killing was directed from the top because only the most senior Saudi leaders could order an operation of such scale and complexity. Media also reported the possibility Mr Khashoggi was taken aboard one of the private planes.

Saudi Arabia is a major investor in Turkey, despite Ankara's support for the Gulf nation of Qatar, which is under a blockade led by Saudi Arabia and three other Arab nations.

"People who have long thought of themselves as Saudi's friends are saying this is a very, very serious matter", he said.

"It's a very sad situation, it's a very bad situation and we want to get to the bottom of it", Trump said.

Turkish security sources on Wednesday identified eight out 15 suspects linked to Khashoggi's disappearance. The unnamed official who spoke to the Times said it was "like "Pulp Fiction" in its gruesomeness.

TRT World also obtained footage showing Khashoggi entering the Saudi consulate on October 2.

Khashoggi, a Virginia-based critic of bin Salman's policies, entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, last week for some paperwork regarding his divorce, but he never exited the mission.

On Tuesday, footage and identities of the "assassination" squad were made public.

The kingdom calls the allegation "baseless", but has not offered any evidence to explain why Mr Khashoggi simply walked out of the consulate and disappeared though his fiancée waited outside for him.

Meanwhile, UN human rights expert David Kaye called for an independent worldwide investigation into the disappearance, urging that the probe "should not be politicised". It "puts basically the Turks in the position of having both to maintain a diplomatic relationship and to deal with a real important, high-profile investigation".

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, described to the Times a quick and complex operation in which Khashoggi was killed within two hours of his arrival at the consulate by a team of Saudi agents who dismembered his body with a bone saw they brought for the objective.
