Trump says allegations against Saudis are example of "guilty until proven innocent"

Trump says allegations against Saudis are example of

He declared in July that he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin's claim that the Russians did not interfere in the 2016 presidential election - siding with Putin over US intelligence officials, who say they have plentiful evidence that Moscow mounted a calculated effort to help Trump win the election.

Saudi Arabia has denied these reports.

Turkish officials would not comment on the disposal method for the body, pending investigation and a planned search of the consul's residence.

Pompeo met King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to discuss the incident, which has sparked global outrage and brought renewed attention on the authoritarian kingdom's human rights record. "Answers will be forthcoming shortly".

Before leaving Riyadh, Pompeo told reporters that the Saudi leaders "made no exceptions on who they would hold accountable".

Erdogan on Tuesday said he hopes a reasonable opinion will be reached as soon as possible in the investigation, adding the search in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul will continue with the investigation also looking into toxic materials. This guy's got to go.

President Trump compared allegations that the Saudi government authorized the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi to accusations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. "I emphasised the importance of conducting a thorough, transparent, and timely investigation, and the Saudi leadership pledged to deliver precisely on that".

President Trump apparently phoned in while Pompeo was meeting with the crown prince.

Royal Wedding Official Photographs Released By Princess Eugenie
Before the event, Eugenie told ITV, which broadcast the hour-long service in Britain, that she was both excited and a bit on edge. Gift bags from Harry and Meghan's wedding were also sold on eBay in May - with some users selling theirs for over £1,000.

Yesterday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to press them on the matter, but appeared on camera smiling and shaking hands with each of them even as Turkish officials said police found evidence at the consulate that Khashoggi was slain inside.

Khashoggi's alleged killers tortured the journalist during interrogation by cutting his fingers off, Yeni Safak said, claiming it had heard multiple recordings.

After his talks in Riyadh on Tuesday, Pompeo was expected in Turkey today to meet Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

A Turkish daily on Wednesday claimed it has accessed audio recordings that indicate Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was tortured before he was decapitated inside Riyadh's consulate in Istanbul.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has suggested parts of the consulate had been repainted since the disappearance of the journalist, who was a critic of the Saudi regime. He is also reportedly linked to the prince's security detail.

The Saudi heir apparent wields considerable power in the kingdom and is being held responsible by many outside for whatever happened to Khashoggi.

He said: "I don't want to talk about any of the facts". Trump said he would make the decision of whether Mnuchin will attend by Friday. Pompeo was asked point-blank if the Saudis told him whether the journalist is alive or dead.
