The president said that his own comment Monday about possible "rogue killers" behind Khashoggi's disappearance was informed by his "feeling" from his conversation with Salman, and that the King did not use the term.

Swaths of USA executives have declined to attend the Future Investment Initiative conference next week.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman is the key power inside Saudi Arabia, and struck up a friendship with Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner in 2017.

Virgin Hyperloop One, one iteration of Elon Musk's visionary Hyperloop transportation project, unveiled its first pod prototype earlier this year.

The newspaper said it gathered more information about the suspects through facial recognition software, a database of Saudi cell phone numbers, leaked Saudi government documents, witnesses and media.

"We just went through that with Justice Kavanaugh, and he was innocent all the way as far as I'm concerned". There has been no such correction.

The US has asked Turkey for a recording said to provide strong evidence that missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Khashoggi had fled the country a year ago amid the rise of Prince Mohammed, whom he wrote critically about in the Post.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says America takes the disappearance of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi "seriously".

Saudi Arabia has denied the allegations, but provided no evidence he left the consulate.

Trump's remarks were his most robust defense yet of the Saudis.

The president said the truth would come out "by the end of the week". "They're ghastly. But those reports have never affected strategic or economic policy, and I don't think they will now", Lippmann said.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson Call Off Engagement
Davidson previously had Grande's bunny-ears logo tattooed just under his left ear. However, TMZ reported Sunday that the two have called the engagement off.

Pompeo was also tight-lipped after meeting the Saudi leadership in Riyadh, telling journalists he did not want "to talk about any of the facts".

The Turkish government has said it possesses audio and video proof Khashoggi was murdered shortly after entering the consulate.

When CBS correspondent Errol Barnett spotted Kushner and his detail aboard a flight from Washington to New York Tuesday, he tried to question Kushner about Saudi Arabia.

What makes this different is what may be irrefutable evidence of a horror committed against a U.S. resident: United States intelligence intercepts that the crown prince ordered Khashoggi's interrogation and kidnapping back to Saudi Arabia and Turkish authorities' recordings in the Istanbul consulate of Khashoggi screaming as his fingers were cut off, and a forensic doctor advising others to listen to music while he dismembers the body with a bone saw.

Pompeo, heading back to Washington, told reporters that the USA needs "to know the facts before we can begin to formulate what the appropriate response" would be if Saudi Arabia is responsible for Khashoggi's disappearance.

Three other suspects are linked to Prince Mohammed's security detail and a fifth is a high-level forensic doctor, the Times said.

Turkey has not shared with the USA government or European allies graphic audio or video evidence, seven US and European security officials told Reuters.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will decide on Thursday whether he will attend an investment conference in Riyadh that has been boycotted by global business leaders concerned about the fate of Saudi critic Jamal Khashoggi.

Pompeo told journalists Wednesday morning before flying to Turkey that the kingdom promised a "transparent investigation".

Another pro-government newspaper, Sabah, had reported at the weekend that Mr Khashoggi's Apple Watch recorded his interrogation, torture and killing, although some experts have said it is not likely that the watch could have done this at that location.

Despite such heated rhetoric condemning the Saudis, others are suggesting the media seems eager to believe the claims of Turkish officials.
