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

Eileen GuzmanOct 12, 2018

Trump said he wanted to find out what happened to Khashoggi but appeared reluctant to consider blocking arms sales, citing economic reasons. "We're demanding everything", Mr Trump said when asked if he was demanding information from the Saudis.

President Donald Trump has expressed reservations over calls to withhold further USA arms sales to Saudi Arabia as the us looks into the fate of a Saudi writer missing and feared murdered by his own government. And we want to get to the bottom of it. "It's a bad situation", Trump said in the Oval Office.

"People saw him go in and didn't see him come out".

"I think if we were to have another vote in the next week or two, I think you'd actually get a majority of the Senate who says 'Hey we need to back off, '" he said. Murphy was among seven senators who wrote to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday raising concerns over last month's certification that a Saudi-led coalition was taking actions to protect civilians despite what the lawmakers described as a dramatic increase in deaths.

"Therefore, we request that you make a determination on the imposition of sanctions pursuant to the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act with respect to any foreign person responsible for such a violation related to Mr. Khashoggi". "We have jobs, we have a lot of things happening in this country".

In Turkey on Thursday, a spokesman for President Erdogan told the state-run Anadolu Agency that Turkey and Saudi Arabia would form a "joint working group" to look into the journalist's disappearance.

"Before Khashoggi's disappearance", the Washington Post reported Tuesday, "U.S. intelligence intercepted communications of Saudi officials discussing..."

"Frankly I think that would be a very very tough pill to swallow for our country".

Asked if he believed it was the Saudis, Trump responded: 'I would rather not say, but the answer is yes, ' he said. When asked if he would consider blocking US arms sales to Saudi Arabia, Trump said that would hurt the United States, citing such deals as a big part of a booming USA economy.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., a longtime critic of the Saudi government, has said he'll try to force a vote in the Senate blocking USA arms sales to Saudi Arabia. Sen. "I miss my friends and family very much", he told me.

"I would say they're excellent", said Trump before going on a tangent.

Without going into detail, the president also said he has talked with the highest levels of the Saudi government about the missing contributor. 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.

On Sept 28, Jamal visited the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul for the first time, despite being somewhat concerned that he could be in danger.

A Turkish security source had previously told Reuters that the 15 Saudis, including some officials, left Turkey later the same day.

"White House National Security Advisor, Ambassador John Bolton, and White House Senior Advisor, Jared Kushner, spoke to Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman yesterday about the missing Washington Post journalist", she said on October 10.

Corker told reporters on Wednesday he appreciates the reform agenda pursued by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is commonly referred to by his initials "MBS", but made it clear the abduction or murder of Khashoggi was completely unacceptable if the Saudi government was involved.

Khashoggi had first left Saudi Arabia a year ago, saying he feared retribution for his criticism of Saudi policy in the Yemen war and its crackdown on dissent.

"In most cases, their arrests have never been officially confirmed and no official has ever said where they are being held or what they are charged with", RSF, which defends press freedom around the world, said in a statement. "But I don't want to rush to judgment". A spokesman for the State Department insisted the USA government had "no advance warning" of Khashoggi's disappearance.

The Saudi dissident's fate remains shrouded in mystery, with several reports indicating that he has been either killed or kidnapped at the consulate by 15 Saudi operatives - among them bin Salman's elite close protection unit - who had arrived in Istanbul on the same day only to leave Turkish soil hours later.
