Trump: ‘No reason’ for month delay in Khashoggi probe

By Michael Hernandez


U.S. President Donald Trump said Monday there is “no reason” for a one-month delay into Saudi Arabia’s investigation into the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

Trump added he is “not satisfied” with Saudi Arabia’s explanation for Khashoggi just days after calling it a “great first step.”

After denying knowledge of Khashoggi’s whereabouts for two weeks, Saudi Arabia on Saturday admitted Khashoggi was killed during a fight inside its Istanbul consulate.

His body has not been recovered, nor has Saudi Arabia explained its shifting narrative on Khashoggi’s case.

He was last seen entering the the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul Oct. 2.
