been an elaborate assassination plan this is some of the latest information to be released by turkish officials who on monday vowed to go off to all those behind trees murder and the approach of the president from the beginning has been extremely clear nothing considering this incident remains a secret and legally the issue will be investigated until the end game and responsibility is to enlighten this incident in all its parts it's out of the question to escape from this president. is expected to speak on tuesday revealing all the details of what his party described as a monstrous operation. we're faced with a situation in which was a brutally planned a killing in efforts were made to cover it up when you look at it through this frame it's a very complicated murder the republic of turkey is an extremely trustworthy country it's a confident country it's a country that is working to back each allegation with a legal argument and legal evidence on monday police located
a car registered to the saudi diplomatic mission hidden in a parking lot in istanbul they say c.c.t.v. footage shows another vehicle had followed it into the car park and then was loaded with objects from the diplomatic vehicle footage released to buy turkish media of papers and documents being burnt in the garden of the consulates the day off their trip to was killed further suspicious activity by saudi officials who have feigned innocence from the starts. the release of this latest information buy or forty's here cost even more doubts on the saudi narrative that the killing was a mistake by rogue elements everything released by turkey so far would indicate that this was a well thought out plan ordered by the kingdom's most senior leadership where the presidents are one will prove this on tuesday is yet to be seen. to stumble now sinan costello joins us live from ankara so from videos to claims of audio
recordings expectations quite high ahead of the one speech. yes i mean as a first people let me say good morning from ontario expectations are very high not only among the public opinion or the politicians but also in the markets as well even even the financial markets are waiting for to hear are gone speech because because the everybody's curious about what the political outcome of this between saudi arabia and turkey is going to be actually on the diplomatic level it seems everything is all right because leaders are always in touch prisons are down speaks to king solomon and president trump speaks to mohamed bin sound on the from friends and they're seeing they say there is that cooperation between the state authorities in terms of the fs should jeanne meserve two investigations are underway you know
one in istanbul and the other one is an independent investigation ongoing in saudi arabia but as the expectations are high if dawn doesn't deliver what he has flown is today it will be a very big disappointment especially for the journalists all around the world who has been waiting for you waiting waiting for the clearance of this incident when you look at the saudi rhetorical since the beginning they they they they had a systematic denial about the incident and finally it's through the international a media pressure they have to admit confess what's happened to jim out the shuki not only in details but at this they accept it's a he died in general consulate building in istanbul now don promise he is going to reveal every detail each detail that no one has ever heard and he says that this time i will speak in a very different way so what is that different way this is
a question mark this is what we are waiting for yesterday he held a cabinet meeting he. at the cabinet meeting and he asked for some inventive to saudi relations but of course it everything goes to depends on what the other countries like european countries the united states of america how they're going to react against and for not german it seems to have halted all say as to saudi arabia until everything is cleared up but how the case is going to clear up samir this is the most important thing the saudis saw it say that it is only it is a rogue. group in the government who did this without any information of the crown prince but on the other hand every evidence that we have been hearing from the official sources here the perpetrators the sequoyah team and everything seems to be pre-planned actually states planned because all those us as suspects have direct links most of them have direct links with the crown prince even though it is even
the crown prince in a private office was called for four times in a couple of hours when jamal what should she was being murdered so now we will see whether saudi arabia is going to get away with this murder if it happens so probably are done is going to be very upset we are sure that he will not accept that everything happened out of mohammed. control parts and of course all of our from ankara thanks for. well as reported the head of the cia has been dispatched and joins a group of u.s. investigators already on the ground trying to determine the facts of the case donald trump has been talking to u.s. media outlets about the killing of the kahane explains. u.s. president donald trump hitting the campaign trail again he wants to talk about the upcoming election but. the questions keep coming back to this one what is the
u.s. going to do after saudi arabia admitted to killing american resident and washington journalist jamal khashoggi the president making news announcing u.s. investigators are on the case over your. breakup of the turkey right now to great the people in saudi arabia are coming back to my car and i will not. i am not satisfied with whatever but he continued to stress the most important thing to him investment from saudi arabia even though he has grossly inflated the actual amounts his son in law and senior adviser jared kushner is also talking he's staked much of his work in the middle east on his close relationship with the crown prince mohammed bin so man he says coup shows he's killing seems to be a terrible situation but stressed other factors are important as well once we have all the facts then will make an assessment but again i think that our
administration has made a lot of gains in our fight against terrorism we have to deal with the long term ideology. of extremism and saudi arabia is a critical partner in that at the same time the trying to administration sending messages of support with this meeting a picture tweeted out from the saudi foreign ministry of the u.s. treasury secretary steve minutia and meeting with the prince in the kingdom un day mixed messages and a sense of hesitation from the u.s. but the pressure is unrelenting this has stayed. in the headlines and a member of the royal prince's security team of saudi arabian officials changing their story about the fate of washington post journalist jamal khashoggi there are major developments also in the case i think is the longest the saudis continue to offer different explanations different stories as to what happened i think the story will continue to have a way because there there is no concrete answers that we're getting a relationship that will be put to the test in
a short amount of time the president promising answers soon but action is less certain political gain al-jazeera washington. let's go live now to mike allen he's in washington d.c. with more of what's going on that is so let's start with the cia head of cia is in tokyo on the stand or on the way what sort of mission has she been given. well there's been no real information given out about gina hospital's movements the cia will not even confirm what flight she's on what time she's going to arrive and importantly what time is she going to return to report back to president trump one assumes that she's the senior part of the information the people that he says he's been sent out there in turkey and in saudi arabia he says he should have more details once a report back to him but president trump now characterizing this affair as what he calls a plot that's gone all right this is once again
a piece of ambivalence on the part of the u.s. president in fact implying that there was no premeditated action here that it was some kind of mistake that went from the other piece of the problem with the trumpet ministrations clarity on the subject is the presence of the treasury secretary's steep new chin in riyadh he was due to go there to attend a terrorism conference he had pulled out of the economic forum that is taking place but they had the no meeting with the crown prince should chilled this came as a complete surprise and the first that was known about it was when the saudi foreign ministry tweeted out the picture showing a smiling treasury secretary with the crown prince so it's shows very clearly that while the president trumps it may say he's dissatisfied with the outcome of the investigation so far he is still trying to keep a good book see strolled trying to maintain good strong relations with saudi arabia
and with the crown prince in particular. mike out of there from washington d.c. . ali handled mohammed bin salmond social media and now more than half danny's one of the most powerful men in the saudi crown prince is in a circle that seems to be implicated in the killing of jim walsh is news agency says he was beamed into a room of the saudi consulate on skype where he hurled insults g. and at one point ordered his murder. was removed from his post as the advisor to the royal court to contain the fallout over which of jesus' death is ties to the crown prince a widely known he once tweeted he wouldn't do anything without his boss's approval well this includes leading an interrogation of lebanon's prime minister saad hariri and the arrest of hundreds of saudi elite the forty year old has a reputation for cracking down on voices critical of the kingdom and the crown
prince online. now the hashimi is the director of the center for middle east studies at the university of denver he says the video evidence of the saudi crown prince is tough eyed will implicate the bin sound man in the killing of democracy. well i think a lot of it has to revolve revolves around exactly how jamal khashoggi was murdered the saudi narrative is that it was a brawl he died in a stranglehold and they sort of gave the body to a local collaborator the leaks from the turkish intelligence services suggested that he was killed very early after entering the consulate and then his body was dismembered so any evidence that suggests that the turkish narrative is the one that holds up and can be proven specifically with respect to this forensic expert who is an expert in autopsy and came to stumble with a bone saw anything along those lines that speaks to exactly how jamal was killed i
think well you know determine which side has the stronger claim and it will shape events moving forward well the timing is basically. b.s. is the saudi crown prince his right hand man and his enforcer he's widely known to be the equivalent of a steve benen type figure within the inner circle of the saudi crown prince so the reuters report suggests that the skype. call that was made from assad into the interrogation room was picked up by turkish intelligence services and that's now in the hands of the turkish president so if the turkish president tomorrow reveals that. audiotape then i think it will directly implicate the saudi crown prince. there's been a chorus of condemnation and demands for a transparent inquiry into who should g.'s murder by leaders from around the world german chancellor angela merkel says the country will not export arms to saudi
arabia until the facts behind what she called a monstrosity are clear canada too says it's prepared to hold a thirteen billion dollars arms deal if their weapons were misused i being more pressure on riyadh indonesia's president dr widodo is also demanding a transparent and thorough investigation as he met with the saudi foreign minister and britain's foreign minister says the saudi version that died in a fistfight is not credible jeremy hunt says anyone found responsible must be held fully accountable french court says it will proceed with an investigation against the saudi crown prince mohammed bin salmond over the war in yemen a civil suit was filed by yemeni human rights group in the crown visited paris in april it accuses the defense minister of complicity in torture and other cruel treatment of yemeni civilians but also it also says attacks ordered by the crown prince of violated international law including an attack on

midterm elections senator ted cruz ran for president in two thousand and sixteen but lost his party's nomination to trump. the two once cold each other lawyers for the value nice in their efforts of prevent the democrats and taking control of congress i think joe castro as well from houston. it says it donald trump's large defeat in the texas republican primary election two years ago never happened most republicans here now apparently love him these folks are great this is probably what will be. where are our friends. from the lone star state a special special place thank you very much for being here this is some record crowd sixteen thousand supporters filled the houston arena some having waited overnight to get in trump was the main draw they say even though the rally was to support the re-election of republican senator ted cruz cruz was the man who travels
