White House Will Release “Very Full Report” On Khashoggi Findings On Tuesday

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

In a wide-ranging Fox News interview released on Sunday, President Trump said he hadn’t listened to the Khashoggi tape, one day after he praised the US’s relationship with Saudi Arabia in response to reports that the CIA had identified Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman as the mastermind of the plot to kill Jamal Khashoggi. And as speculation about the administration’s ability to hold the Saudis accountable intensified, Trump said the administration will release a “very full report” on the killing on Tuesday, according to BBG.

White House Will Release "Very Full Report" On Khashoggi Findings On Tuesday

Trump again denied that the CIA had made a final conclusion as to who is responsible for Khashoggi’s killing, instead insisting that the US “hadn’t assessed anything yet.” In response to the Friday report in the Washington Post, Trump said that information was premature. “It’s too early. That was a very premature report.”

On Saturday, Trump spoke with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and CIA chief Gina Haspel while aboard Air Force One as he traveled to California to meet with people affected by deadly wildfires, according to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Asked by reporters if the president had confidence in the CIA’s conclusion, Sanders said: “He has confidence in CIA.”

“As of this moment, we were told that he did not play a role, we’re going to have to find out what they say,” Trump told reporters on Saturday before leaving the White House.

While Trump has defended the US’s relationship with Saudi Arabia, others in the administration haven’t been so enthusiastic. On Saturday, Vice President Mike Pence referred to Khashoggi’s killing as “an atrocity” and vowed that the kingdom and anybody involved in the killings would be held responsible.

    Good to keep this story alive, but Trump will whitewash it.
    Why not a press release about N Yemen. Khashgoggi is only a single man killed by Saudis..

    • Snowglobe

      After all of this fuss, bother and drama, I am expecting Khashgoggi to be sited in Graceland dressed as an Elvis impersonator in a jumpsuit.

      The photo’s will be released to Turkey.

        Thanks for the info! Oops, I meant this reply for the info in your reply below

          Your welcome. :-)

          This is my understanding. Papadopoulos was instructed to stay in the light, visible, in the public eye. This was to avoid him being disappeared and becoming a grease spot on a back road somewhere.

          With him putting these connections out, it is suspected that his instructions were updated and that the need for him to be arkancided were diminished.

          This is the best summery floating around the interwebz at the moment.

          I think that you might find it interesting.

      Remember that Khashoggi was a CIA asset and the Washington Post is a subsidiary of the CIA. The CIA is exacting their price on MbS. Erdogan knows this well which is why he has directed leaks to the Washington Post (and others media) – Khashoggi was a reporter for the Post but Post is CIA mouthpiece and CIA pissed at MbS – CIA is a powerful enemy so let us see if MbS can come out of this as still Crown Prince.

        An interesting tidbit of gossip I just came across…

        Big development: Joseph Mifsud is tied directly to Christopher Steele and Alexander Downer’s former chief of staff. He was also on Jamal Khashoogi’s payroll.— George Papadopoulos (@GeorgePapa19) November 18, 2018

      Khashoggi finally drew attention to Yemen….What Thousands of Dead Yemeni Kids couldn’t… the Chopping Up of a Muslimbrotherhood-Al-Qaeda Loving Wahhabi Journalist could….so thank you Mister Khashoggi! Mohammed Ben Shlomo is done…

      • Ayauhteotl

        Even if MbS is actually replaced, the CIA will likely choose a hand-picked candidate, who will obey all of Washington’s instructions.

  • Merijn

    Chop up Mohammed Ben Shlomo even the CIA is even saying You gave the Order Clown Prince….You are done Jewish House of Saud..

    • You can call me Al

      It is all BS, they want to replace MBS, because he dared to speak back to Trump… all little boy’s antics.

      • Merijn

        If Clown Prince Mohammed Ben Shlomo had Khashoggi Chopped up, than Clown Prince Mohammed Ben Shlomo should be Beheaded…just like all the Other Wahhabi Criminals are Beheaded….no Class-Justice…what is sauce for the Goose is sauce for the Gander…I’m tired of Elitist’s Justice….because there is none… they can do whatever they want….Drugsdealing, Massmurdering, Warcrimes, Human & Organ trafficking, Fucking Kids, Producing Snuff-Movies, basically any Satanic Orgy or Fantasy is allowed by our Justice System for Kings Queens Puppeticians & Banksters….I say: Hang them all…

        • You can call me Al

          “If Clown Prince Mohammed Ben Shlomo had Khashoggi Chopped up” —- But did he, was he even aware of it ?.

          To me, it is the same old play we keep on seeing:

          1. Why so brutal, why not a quick kidnap and a single bullet ?.
          2. Why did he go to the Saudi consulate / embassy IN TURKEY, when he could have got the papers in the US especially since he was an apparent star in the US ? (although no-one had ever heard of him before).

          and so on and so on and so on…. it sounds OTT and scripted to me.

          My view only

          PS Why so much fuss and media coverage about one man, when the US carries out scores of these assassinations daily ?.

          PPS Numerous European Countries have sanctioned the Saudis over it.

          I stand with my original comment until proven wrong.

          • Hasbara Hunter

            It took 7 minutes… it can take some time to kill a man…while they were strangling him and he was still alive they chopped of his fingers, possibly to proof Clown Prince Mohammed Ben Shlomo that it was really Khashoggi the Hit-Squad had killed…. because the Rest of Khashoggi was dissolved in acid to get rid of the Evidence…the Jerrycans Emptied in the Forest….I think the Elites want to Dump Mohammed Ben Shlomo because he wasn’t capable enough…The Real waiting is for a Coup d’Etat in Wahhabistan…That will be the Moment to Neutralize the Jewish House of Saud…

    “WHITE HOUSE WILL RELEASE “VERY FULL REPORT”

    Yeah, full of US bullshit as usual. :)

    • Brother Ma

      Because obviously all the other reports the US release are bullshit! Hahah
      Haspel was in Turkey weeks ago and got all tapes and vids. If tRump genuinely does not know what is going on he must be more ill-informed than Amazonian Indian chiefs who have still not heard of White people.

  • Barba_Papa

    My prediction for this report, Iran did it with the help of Hezbollah and Russian hackers.
