6:05 pm
evidence to actually put those sanctions in place but i think we'll be able to get there we're going to find the fact that a president said we will demand accountability for those who are involved to the commission of this i've described sanctions would not be the only repercussion from the u.s. more than a week ago the state department revoked the visas of twenty one saudi nationals identified as involved in the operation to kill. secretary michael i'm pale said at the top. time those penalties would not be the last word even as the u.s. continued to gather facts that included cia director gina haskell traveling to turkey and reportedly listening to the audio recording of killing turkey is leading the investigation it says she was strangled almost immediately after entering the saudi consulate on october second. no one will escape responsibility this issue has become universal it cannot be covered up and it is watched by

6:08 pm
a few days ago where he said that she was strangled to death upon entering the saudi consulate to and that his body was cut into pieces so there is a feeling here of frustration really that saudi arabia has not been cooperative the head of the saudi arabia's top prosecutor was in istanbul in the beginning of this week and instead of helping with the evidence and providing information he wanted to know what evidence turkey had so this is the feeling among turkish officials they're also quite frustrated about the lack of you know action on the part of the trumpet ministration they believe that the trumpet ministration could pressure saudi arabia more to cooperate and to disclose where are where are the body parts the head the deputy head of the ruling party yesterday saying that trump statements really are an indication that he's trying to cover up a cover up this whole case even the fiance of she in an opinion piece you know is asking that question let me do just one sentence she's saying that the trumpet
