Add Jamal Khashoggi as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Jamal Khashoggi news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Two weeks after Khashoggi's disappearance on October 2, the United States and allies have collected some intelligence through their own sources and methods, which partly confirms news reports based on leaks of audio recordings, four of the sources said.

"I'll give you an example - they are ordering military equipment".

Asked about the recording, as reported by the Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak, Trump said, "We've asked for it, if it exists".

"It's reasonable to give them a handful of days more to complete it so they get it right, so that it's thorough and complete and that's what they've indicated they need."
"And when the investigation comes out we'll evaluate it".

Cavusoglu, who was speaking from the airport in Ankara, said the talks with Pompeo were "beneficial and fruitful".

It described the recording as offering evidence that a Saudi team immediately accosted the 60-year-old journalist after he entered the consulate.

Originally, the Saudi government had denied knowing what had happened to Khashoggi after he had gone missing, stating that he had left the consulate.

Musk said on Twitter in May that if the company shipped the $35,000 version right away, Tesla would "lose money [and] die". The release of a lower-priced Model 3 was a "logical next step", Evercore ISI analyst Arndt Ellinghorst said in a note.

Security assistance and arms sales can only resume, the bill says, if the secretary of state "determines and certifies" that the Saudi government did not carry out or order the kidnapping and/or death of Khashoggi.

"We have asked for it, if it exists", President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House. "That means I'm not going back to Saudi Arabia as long as this guy's in charge".

"He said: 'Are you kidding?" It's unclear if Turkey offered him the chance to hear any such recordings.

"They made a commitment to hold anyone connected to any wrongdoing that may be found accountable for that, whether they are a senior officer or official", Mr. Pompeo said. "We'll find out, we'll get down to the bottom of it", Trump said of the Saudi investigation. From Iran and Iraq to Syria, Yemen and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the administration gambled that Saudi Arabia, effectively run by the prince, could credibly lead, and willingly pay for, a "Pax Arabica" in a part of the world from which Trump is keen to disengage.

Pompeo, the US secretary of state, is due to return on Wednesday from a trip to Saudi Arabia and Turkey, where he met with leaders to discuss reports that Khashoggi was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Ozturk suggested that Turkey, with its unprecedented leverage over the Saudis, would agree to a formula that would see the much despised crown prince stripped of his title. "That is a big factor in my eyes, and I hope they haven't".

"In all probability, the Saudis want Trump to know that his cooperation in covering for the Khashoggi affair is important to the Saudi monarch", said Joshua Landis, a professor at the University of Oklahoma. If there really were to be an global backlash that led to investors pulling out, cutoff of substantial foreign investment in Saudi Arabia, Saudis, rich families, moving their money out of the country - which I understand is already happening at an accelerating rate - then those economic plans become even more hard to fulfill than they are in good times.
