  • Think Trump is erratic now? Just wait until after the midterm

A member of the team dressed in Mr Khashoggi's clothes to make it appear he left the consulate.

It is also in conflict with those by Turkish officials who claim they have video and audio proof that Khashoggi, a prominent critic of the Saudi government, was murdered by a 15-strong team who arrived and departed on the same day.

As CNN contributor John Avlon said in the segment above, "this is just remarkable visual proof of the extent to which they went and the trump Administration was willing to parrot those statements".

Saudi Arabia's Minister of Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir said in an interview with USA television channel Fox on the same day that Prince Mohammed had no knowledge of Khashoggi's death.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Sunday he would reveal the "truth" about the Khashoggi case on Tuesday while Turkish officials vowed to pursue the case after Saudi Arabia's admission of guilt.

"They made the mistake when they killed Jamal Khashoggi in the consulate and they tried to cover up for it", he said.

Al-Jubeir is on a two-day visit to Indonesia and has a separate meeting with Retno on Tuesday.

A senior Turkish official told the network that the man, Mustafa al-Madani, was brought to Istanbul to act as a body double for the dissident journalist, who entered the consulate on October 2 to get papers for his upcoming wedding.

Reuters on Sunday quoted an unnamed Saudi official who portrayed Khashoggi's death as the result of a botched kidnapping.

King Salman expressed his deepest sympathy in a telephone call Sunday to Salah Jamal Khashoggi, the son of the 59-year-old journalist, who died in Istanbul early this month. However, pro-government newspapers have been leaking information about Khashoggi's killing, apparently with the help of Turkish security forces.

CCTV Footage Allegedly Shows Khashoggi Entering the Saudi Consulate
Trump said he planned to consult with Congress to devise a response. "They told us that he left the consulate", Jubeir said. He was visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul at the beginning of October for documents needed for his upcoming marriage.

Enjoy your beer, its price will sharply increase due to global warming !
Beer prices could double worldwide and the USA could see 20% decline in beer consumption-that's about 10 billion cans of beer. The next step was to estimate how these "barley supply shocks" would affect the production and price of beer in each region.

The incident has damaged the kingdom's image as a future investment hub, with global business leaders from Goldman Sachs Group Inc.to Uber Technologies Inc. distancing themselves from Prince Mohammed and scrapping plans to attend his business forum this week.

Saudi Arabia did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday.

Riyadh on Saturday finally admitted that Khashoggi had died in the consulate, blaming a brawl, and announced the firing of five top officials and the arrest of 18 others in a probe.

"After Turkish authorities and the media were allowed to inspect the consulate building in its entirety, the accusations changed to the outrageous claim that he was murdered, in the consulate, during business hours, and with dozens of staff and visitors in the building", Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. Prince Khalid bin Salman, a brother of the crown prince, wrote on October 8.

The online campaigns are part of what was described as "a broad effort" by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and his close advisers to silence critics both inside Saudi Arabia and overseas. He added that Riyadh had capacity to increase output to 12 million bpd.

Trump initially said he believed the Saudi account, but on Saturday he said he still does not know where Khashoggi's body is.

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's body was given to a "local cooperator" after he was killed in his country's consulate in Istanbul, a report said.

"Still, Trump has offered kind words for Mohammed bin Salman, and his father, King Salman, repeating their denials that they were involved in Khashoggi's killing". The Saudi statements did not acknowledge the ban.

A Saudi operative then reportedly donned Mr Khashoggi's clothes and left the consulate.
