U.S. not covering up Khashoggi murder, Pompeo says

U.S. not covering up Khashoggi murder, Pompeo says

"The crown prince, we know, did not order this".

It alleged US intelligence agencies intercepted a 2017 conversation between Aldakhil and Mohammed bin Salman in which the crown prince threatened to kill Khashoggi if he did not stop criticizing the Saudi government and return to the kingdom. We will hold those responsible accountable and we will punish them.

"We are still investigating", he told CBS.

During the visit, the Crown Prince will hold talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on wide range of issues of mutual interest.

Speaking during a visit to Hungary, Mike Pompeo said that the U.S. will continue to investigate the murder of Mr Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

A leading adviser to the crown prince, Qahtani has been accused of leading the team that carried out the assassination. Riyadh denies its senior leaders were behind the killing. The investigation led to the arrest of a number of individuals. "I am very disappointed that the response from Secretary Pompeo doesn't come close to fulfilling the statutory mandate and demonstrates what the administration has wanted all along - the Khashoggi murder to be forgotten".

"America is not covering up for a murder", he said, adding that the USA would take more action to hold accountable all those responsible for his death.

Pompeo said that Trump's administration was "working diligently" on its investigation.

Still, in the face of ongoing pressure over the murder, United States officials are pressing Riyadh to hold people responsible, the WSJ reported on Tuesday.

"The death of Jamal Khashoggi was a massive tragedy", he said. Turkish officials previously said they shared evidence with Saudi Arabia and other nations about Khashoggi's killing and repeatedly called for the suspects to be extradited to Turkey, where the crime was committed.

Rights groups say, however, that the Saudi probe into the killing has been wholly insufficient.

Murphy said lawmakers could go to court to try to make the president comply, or they can move forward with their own list of sanctions. At the time, the US Treasury Department described Mutreb as a "subordinate" of Qahtani.

The New York Times reported last week that the Saudi crown prince said in 2017 that he would use "a bullet" on Khashoggi if the journalist did not return home and stop writing critically about the Saudi government.

Tubaigy, who is also under U.S. sanctions, was the head of forensic evidence in the Saudi general security department.

"What I tell people is wait until the legal process plays out and then judge us", al-Jubeir told CBS.

Ahead of that deadline, a bipartisan group of senators led by Menendez reintroduced legislation that would block some USA arms sales to Saudi Arabia in an effort to hold the Kingdom accountable.
