Watch Castro Accuse Kushner Of Giving Saudis A 'Hit List' With Khashoggi

Dem Rep Has 'Irresponsible' Theory: Jared Kushner Orchestrated Journalist's Death in Saudi Arabia Consulate

Khashoggi was killed in a "fistfight" in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, the kingdom claimed early Saturday, finally admitting that the writer had been slain at its diplomatic post. "The Secretary-General is deeply troubled by the confirmation of the death of Jamal Khashoggi".

Asked Friday if he found the Saudi explanation for Khashoggi's death "credible", Trump responded: "I do, I do", The Associated Press reported, though others were skeptical.

She urged that the death of the Washington Post columnist must be carried out in a transparent manner.

Turkish authorities said days ago, that they had an audio recording of the incident in which they say Khashoggi was interrogated, which led to a struggle, which led to Jamal Khashoggi's death.

Khashoggi's disappearance has tarnished the crown prince's reputation and deepened questions about his leadership, prompting Saudi King Salman to intervene, five sources with links to the Saudi royal family told Reuters.

It said that "a fight broke out" after Khashoggi entered the consulate on Tuesday, October 2.

He insisted the Saudi leaders had not lied to him when denying prior knowledge of what had happened to Mr Khashoggi, adding that he preferred "retribution [not including] cancelling weapons sales" to the country, which he said the United States needed as a counterbalance to Iran.

A Turkish team is set to enter the building this aftenoon, "unless something else comes up from the Saudi side", a source said. Those policies are all seen as initiatives of Prince Mohammed, the son of King Salman, who is next in line to the throne.

The Saudis have set up a commission, led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, that will restructure the Saudi general intelligence directorate and will have one month to release a report, state TV said The commission will consist of national security officials, the foreign ministry and the interior ministry. They also contradicted assertions in Turkish media leaks that Khashoggi was tortured, killed and dismembered inside the consulate, claims the kingdom had previously rejected as "baseless".

According to senior officials who spoke to the Times, Kushner has made the case that global outrage over Khashoggi's is bound to fade-much like it did after previous "errors" committed by the Saudi regime.

Turkish officials had said they believed he was killed in the building.

Trump's previous warnings over the case drew an angry response Sunday from Saudi Arabia and its state-linked media, including a suggestion that Riyadh could wield its oil production as a weapon.

Sawers said he was basing his judgment on what happened to Khashoggi on British government sources and Turkish intelligence, which he knows to be "professional" and "thorough."

The gist of the explanation that emerged in a late-night flurry of statements via state-run media had been widely trailed - as much by President Donald Trump, who had quickly suggested "rogue killers" were to blame, as anyone else.
