Turkey seeks arrest of Saudi prince’s aides over Khashoggi murder

Turkey Khashoggi Sean Penn

The two-time Oscar victor was spotted directing Wednesday outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, where Khashoggi was strangled and dismembered with a bone saw October 2, according to Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency.

Bipartisanship is a rarity in the Washington, DC of 2018, but this week, a group of Republican and Democratic senators have introduced a bipartisan resolution that not only rebukes Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, a.k.a. MBS, for the murder of journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, but also, for Saudi policies in Yemen and Qatar.

"The worldwide community seems to doubt Saudi Arabia's commitment to prosecute this heinous crime", the official said, adding that by extraditing all suspects to Turkey, "Saudi authorities could address those concerns".

Sen. Rand Paul, meanwhile, went to Twitter to voice his opinion, smashing the caps lock to say "ENOUGH!" in regards to Saudi Arabia's behavior.

He spoke to reporters as he left a closed-door briefing for some Senate committee leaders and Senate leaders by CIA Director Gina Haspel. Regardless, his party members are sick of it, and a showdown between Trump and these senators seems inevitable.

Corker suggested that President Donald Trump had condoned the murder of a journalist by refusing to condemn the Saudi crown prince.

As part of the sanctions, the U.S. halted the import of Iranian oil, cutting off a key source of revenue for the nation. Meng is a rising star at Shenzhen-based Huawei, now the world's second-largest maker of telecommunications equipment.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and a close ally of Trump's, told reporters there was a "smoking saw" - a reference to reports Saudi government agents murdered and dismembered Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Republican House leaders haven't indicated they will take up any of the measures, meaning any action by the Senate is likely to be symbolic, for now. Graham, Corker and other lawmakers came out of the meeting even more convinced of their opposition to the crown prince.

Al-Qahtani, who was recently fired for his role in the killing of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, personally oversaw the torture of at least one detained female activist earlier this year, two sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

The White House is refusing to pin the blame on the crown prince, apparently afraid of damaging relations. "I'm not going to blow past this", he said. Mike Lee, who championed of the resolution, were not included in the Haspel briefing on Tuesday.

"If someone is saying that Secretary Mattis or Secretary Pompeo were dishonest, they just don't know those individuals", Stewart said. He was not in Haspel's briefing, which was attended by a select number of committee chairs and top-ranking Democrats. "It's not based on friendship as much as it's based on common interests, combating extremism in the Middle East and countering the Iranian threat", said Senator John Cornyn, the chamber's No. 2 Republican.

US lawmakers eager to castigate Saudi Arabia for killing a journalist and its conduct of a military campaign in Yemen hope the Senate soon will pass one or more measures reflecting Washington's growing anger.
