Turkey New details emerge in Khashoggi case as Pompeo tours Ankara

39;Turkey hopes to enter Saudi consul residence today'

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday refused to blame key USA ally Saudi Arabia over the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi even as Riyadh faced new claims he was killed and tortured inside its Istanbul consulate.

"When I do this job, I listen to music", Tubaigy said on the recording.

President Donald Trump warns the United States would inflict "severe punishment" if Saudi Arabia was behind journalist Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance.

Trump also said the USA has requested the audio and video from Turkey related missing journalist "if it exists" and that he will probably know what happened to Khashoggi by the end of the week.

The president said he would get a "full report" from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the diplomat's return from meetings with Saudi and Turkish leaders, allowing him to assess what really happened.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday said that the United States is willing to help Turkey investigate the case of a missing Saudi journalist. "That's going to be the first question I ask", he said.

Turkish officials have said they believe Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who was critical of the authoritarian kingdom's Crown Prince Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was murdered at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 and his body removed.

Turkish daily Yeni Safak reported it had heard audio recordings of Khashoggi being tortured during an interrogation, having his fingers cut off and then being decapitated.

Several US media reported on Monday that the Saudis are preparing a report that Mr Khashoggi's death resulted from a botched interrogation.

Trump suggested that "rogue killers" may have been responsible for the disappearance.

Even if an investigation into what happened to Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul exonerates the prince and the top Saudi leadership, the administration's deep reliance on him will be severely tested not least because of broad bipartisan revulsion in Congress to as-yet unconfirmed accounts of Khashoggi's fate. Pompeo also met on Tuesday with Saudi King Salman over the disappearance and alleged slaying of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi, who vanished two weeks ago during a visit to the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

A New York Times report, citing witnesses and other records, linked four suspects to Crown Prince Mohamed's security detail.

On Tuesday, The Washington Post, for which Khashoggi had been writing, accused the Trump administration of performing a "diplomatic cleanup operation" for Riyadh.

Khashoggi's suspected murder and Saudi Arabia's lackluster efforts to solve the case has negatively affected Riyadh's economic reform drive, chasing away investors and foreign officials alike.

"They said they would do that and they said it would be a thorough, complete, and transparent investigation". Trump has resisted any action, pointing to huge USA weapons deals pending with Saudi Arabia and saying that sanctions could end up hurting the American economy.

Trump challenged the reporter who asked the question about the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"We have said before that Saudi Arabia must cooperate with us in every aspect without delay".

Pompeo welcomed the Turkish decision to release US pastor Andrew Brunson and "reiterated the United States' willingness to assist Turkey in its investigation of the Jamal Khashoggi case", read the statement. I hope that the king and the crown prince didn't know about it.

McGurk, the State Department envoy, arrived in Saudi Arabia on Friday to discuss how the $100 million in stabilization money would be spent, said a State Department official, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the private conversations.
