10:01 pm
from so thousands joined protests over the map on the government's fuel tax rise and. so we start the program with developments in the murder of saudi journalist america's us media is reporting that the cia believes saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin solomon ordered killing in the saudi consulate in istanbul the second the findings contradict the saudi government claims that its de facto leader was not involved in the saudi embassy in washington rejects the accusations made by the u.s. intelligence service president donald trump has now been briefed on the situation by the cia and his secretary of state but is yet to comment on it well speaking before he'd been briefed trumpet stressed the importance of u.s. saudi relations. we also have a great ally saudi arabia and they give us
10:02 pm
a lot to give us a lot of lot of economic development they are there but they should be exact you were there to. get on with development and i also say that you know president i think a lot of the scenery well it's in more now from mike hanna from washington in recent days a number of members of congress have demanded that muhammad have been silent be held accountable either by way of tweets or in the case of senator bob corker during a debate about yemen in the senate i asked for a more briefing with matters peo and yet asked overcome innocence we get back to share with us what is happening with saudi arabia on both fronts both yemen and what is happening as it relates to the journalist who was assassinated in my opinion at the garage and the crown prince of saudi arabia us now the washington post reports the cia has concluded that the saudi crown prince ordered the
10:03 pm
assassination of journalist jamal khashoggi the sit says according to people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity the report says in reaching his conclusions the cia examined multiple sources of intelligence including a phone call that the crown prince's brother and ambassador to the u.s. had with the journalist before his murder khalid bin solomon was quick to deny the allegation saying on twitter i never talk to him by phone and certainly never suggested he go to turkey for any reason i asked the u.s. government to release any information regarding this claim. within hours several other news organizations including the new york times and the wall street journal also quoting anonymous officials confirming the report of the cia's finding although it is funny important it's very significant. what the washington post new
10:04 pm
york times. c m b c n n other outlets over the last hours. reported that the cia internal assessment now is pointing straight years. in some as having ordered this operation this has never happened before at the cia we probably will not comment on this kind of report however the washington post wouldn't report this unless they were accurately reporting what the cia they believe the cia said so which is a slight nuance now one can anticipate that the congressional oversight committees will have been briefed or demand to be briefed on this the reports alleging muhammad have been solomon's involvement unlikely to field even further the congressional demands that punitive measures be taken against the crown prince and
10:05 pm
his government the question is whether the president would be prepared to back away from his stated reluctance to take action against the saudi government and its leader as mike hanna al-jazeera washington well let's go live now to rose in jordan in washington d.c. . the president has now been briefed any response from him oh you know anticipating anything. well the president did not speak to reporters when he landed in northern california to take a look at the wildfires that have been a devastating homes and acreage out on the west coast but his spokesperson sarah sanders did tell reporters that there would be some sort of statement about the briefing and about the cia's findings coming from the state department at some point on saturday afternoon perhaps saturday evening so we are now waiting for that statement we do know from sara sanders that the president spoke not just to the cia
10:06 pm
director gina has spelt but that he also spoke to secretary of state mike pompei o while he was flying to the west coast on saturday and rose what does this this whole story tell us about donald trump's relationship with the cia. well that's certainly one thing that has been one of the hallmarks as it were of the president's tenure has been his willingness to basically denigrate everything that the intelligence community has been doing mainly because it's been looking into allegations that russian operatives or people directed by the russian government tried to disrupt the two thousand and sixteen presidential election and that they may have done so in a consultation or in cooperation with members of the president's campaign team during that year that is of course something which donald trump has vehemently denied denied but intelligence officials did conclude early in two thousand and
10:07 pm
seventeen that there had been russian interference in the presidential campaign and there are still investigations underway as we speak looking into the scope of that interference and looking for those who may have made it possible for this interference to be carried out so the president has never looked favorably at the intelligence community because it is raised questions about the integrity and the authoritativeness of his election in two thousand and sixteen that said because according to the a number of national newspapers that the cia has investigated now has looked at the evidence presented to it by turkish officials as well as apparently has carried out its own investigation that they say that there really is no way that the murder of jamal khashoggi could have been carried out without the express intervention of the saudi crown prince mohammed bin saddam on our roads even if the moment was jordan
10:08 pm
in washington d.c. let's head over to turkey where we find tony but lee live for us in istanbul and tell you what what's the latest on the turkish inquiry. well there's been a steady trickle of revelations coming out through the turkish media none of which have been denied by the turkish government so we can assume that the correct but the latest is from the newspaper a well respected newspaper they've given details today about the killing of missing . and they basically were saying that they think the murders used a coagulant to stop mystical saudis blood start sort of make his blood clot so when his body was dismembered there was no traces around the scene of the murder that is borne out by the fact the turkish government has said that there's been no d.n.a. of mr karzai found it either the consulate saudi concert behind me or the consul general house so it was suggesting a very thorough or a clean up operation by this team and of course the cia coming out with its
10:09 pm
findings corroborates and confirms what the turkish government said all along that this was a pre meditated murder and this is a fifteen man hit squad that came from saudi arabia lots of circumstantial evidence also and it puts the ball very much in the courts of of riyadh now as to how they're going to respond so far we understand there's been no response to the latest cia report so we can assume that they're now coley collaborated to find a response to that but here they're very much of the mind that this was a premeditated murder they said before that these whole allegations go to the very doorstep of the saudi will court and that suggest that someone pretty high up they've always said the saudi crown prince was responsible the man who gave the order but it wasn't him that it was somebody somebody else who equally is high up the question is who precisely the right tony thanks very much indeed tony in istanbul. well as you mentioned president trump is now in california where the
10:10 pm
