"a plot gone awry"
President Trump's latest comment on Khashoggi's murder to "USA Today"
US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin was in Saudi Arabia Monday meeting with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.
A spokesman for the Treasury Department said economic and counter terrorism issues were discussed as well as Iran, but that the Khashoggi murder was also discussed.
The fact that Mnuchin traveled to Saudi Arabia was fascinating after he had pulled out of an investment conference starting there today.
Mnuchin is in on the Trump Administration's priority of aligning key nations like Israel and Saudi Arabia against Iran in the Middle East region.
He was a representative of the Trump Administration when the US Embassy in Israel was moved to Jerusalem earlier this year.
CIA Director Gina Haspel is heading to Turkey as well apparently to get a handle on what information Turkey has about Khashoggi.
In Turkey today President Recep Tayyip Erdogan promised to present the "naked truth" about Khashoggi's murder as he speaks to Turkey's parliament.
Pro-government media have already published articles in Turkish for public consumption that paint a picture of Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman's close involvement in what happened at the Saudi consulate in Istabul on October 2nd.
Its reported that Khashoggi was put on the phone with Bin Salman who told him that he must return to Saudi Arabia.
When Khashoggi refused his murder by dismemberment was carried out.
There were phone calls between the consulate and a key aide to the Crown Prince after the murder according to the Turkish media.

“Who cares?” Everybody else on earth.
What one group of barbarians does to another group of barbarians in their barbarian lands is no concern of mine - at least not if your point is that we should invest lives and treasure in making them other than what they are.
Put down the crack pipe and stop listening to the FAKE news. Nobody really cares.
It wasn’t that long ago, that the royal family beheaded a princess and her lover in public. There was some outcry, but nobody demanded that our president take any action against Saudi Arabia. And resident of the US doesn’t equal citizen of the US. Saudi princes have residences in the US too.
"Who cares" was a quote from Everybody else on earth, myself included.
Their blatant attempt to start WWIII so they can blame Trump is DISGUSTING!
Meanwhile, anyone seen the head of Interpol lately...?
My apologies! This journalist circle jerk is boring and growing old.
try finding ANY ARTICLES by the FakeNewsMSM on this American:
Wikipedia: Serena Shim
Serens Shim was an American journalist for Press TV. While covering the Siege of Kobanê as a war correspondent, she was allegedly murdered in a car crash. Her employer called the accident “suspicious” as she was killed two days after Turkey allegedly accused her of spying...
Shim was 29 years old when she was killed in Turkey...
Her death took place days after she published a story detailing the said Turkish government use of humanitarian aid-marked trucks to transport weapons and ammunition to ISIL-ISIS factions that opposed the Assad administration’s government in Syria...ETC
a very incomplete and outdated list:
Wikipedia: List of journalists killed in Turkey
Following the killing of Armenian journalist Hrant Dink in Istanbul on 19 January 2007 various lists of journalists killed in Turkey since the early 20th century were published. One such list was published by the Turkish Association of Journalists. It contains 64 names of journalists killed between 1909 and 2009.
A “Platform of imprisoned journalists” published a list in April 2012 that contained 112 names...
It also appears that some people were not journalists by profession, but affiliated to certain publications as readers, vendors or even part-time publishers of political comments. These people will not be included in the lists, apart from people who were killed because they distributed certain publications.
In some cases, the state has been seen guilty for assassinating Kurdish journalists...
So now Saudi-Israel cooperation is out in the open. And neither one did much if anything to fight ISIS. And our weapons are used against their enemies. I think it’s safe to say that not all conservatives are on board with our entangling alliances in the Mideast. And that I’m probably not the only Freeper who wonders why Saudi Arabia didn’t suffer our wrath after 911.
Don’t care. Move on.
Hadda turn off Faux a couple of days ago. Made me want to barf.
You guys are not acknowledging the entertainment value this holds.
I do not have cable TV, and find this all very fun.
Turkey continues to drip out info that paints SA as liars, like the “he started a fistfight” narrative, which could only be true if he fully got naked before the “fistfight”, because a body double immediately put on his clothes and walked around in public spaces after the murder, and there was not blood on those clothes.
The shoes were wrong, though.
Reddit The_Donald is having a field day with this.
They kill journalists over there?
Sound like good guys to know. Are they any good with helicopters?
Trump has to find a way to punish them such that they will avoid embarrassing him in the future.
Only the media and political class care. Benghazi - just could not get the public to care, which partly explains why Obama and Hillary got away with that mess. Journalists are regarded as badly as ambulance chasers by the public, so why should they care?
And as far as I am concerned why should I care about that Muslim Brotherhood dirt bag or care about a matter concerning the Islamist state of Turkey?
As much as I hate the Saudis, these are all the WRONG reasons to get medieval on their butts.
Frankly Scarlet I don’t give a dam.
As far as I am concerned it is an internal “civl war” matter in Saudi Arabia, between the royals and billionaire heavy weights that are linking western Leftists with the Muslim Brotherhood (of which Kahsoggi was a member), and against the Saudi royals. You know which side Erdogan is on - the Muslim Brotherhood.
While Kashoggi was claiming for himself a mantle of promoting “democracy”, he had published his opposition to some of the modernizing moves the Saudi roayls had taken; as disrespesctful to Islam.
I think the Saudi roayls see the Muslim Brotherhood as an existential threat, and they knew Kashoggi with all his western contacts was a key asset to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Now as you watch the wesetrn media all lined up in favor of Kashoggi, consider how deep subversion in the west by the Muslim Brotherhood has gotten in the last twenty years.
