2:09 am
solomon ordered killing in the saudi consulate in istanbul on top of the second of the findings contradict the saudi government claims that it's a de facto leader was not involved the saudi embassy in washington rejects the accusation made by the u.s. intelligence service president on the trump has now been briefed on the situation by the cia and the state department says the u.s. government has not yet reached a final conclusion speaking before he'd been briefed trump stressed the importance of u.s. saudi relations. we also have a great ally in saudi arabia they give us a lot of jobs that give us a lot of business a lot of economic development they are they have been truly spectacular allies jobs to get on the development and i also take that you know i'm president i have to take a lot of things if you consider race. so let's go live to share were tons in washington d.c. says that she had just to sum up for us where we're at with this only going situation
2:10 am
. well we have this leak from the cia on the basis of all the circumstantial evidence analysts at the agency have concluded that muhammad bin someone has to have ordered the killing of jamal khashoggi at the at the consulate in istanbul the saudi consulate in istanbul they did so by looking at communications intercepts by looking at the nature of power in saudi arabia and there on the so said look this just couldn't have happened without mahmoud been someone having ordered ordered this action taking place however they accept that there's still those smoking gun there isn't they don't have that key piece of evidence which shows mohamed bin solomon telling his operatives kill jamal khashoggi and that's all the legal way that donald trump needs to continue to say that the administration does not have definitive proof that mohamed been solemn and ordered ordered the killing and in fact we have that that statement from the state
2:11 am
department saying recent reports indicating that the u.s. government has made a final conclusion are inaccurate there remain numerous unanswered questions with respect to the murder of mr bush and as always with the state department and the white house that key element of the u.s. saudi relationship is always brought in and we will do that while maintaining the we'll continue to seek the facts we will do that while maintaining the important strategic relationship between the u.s. and saudi arabia and we can only speculate as to why someone in the cia decided to leak all this information but it seems pretty clear that that conclusion made with high confidence wasn't receiving a terribly sympathetic hearing in the white house and why would that be why i would not want to point the finger at the top level of the saudi government. say the refreshing thing about donald trump is how transparent he is quite often how and nakedly pragmatic is about about his deliberations he says of himself. to

iran all of all of the trouble ministrations other priorities in the middle east israeli palestinian deal of a century between the israelis and the palestinians he's quite open about this is about money this is about geo strategy and he doesn't want to see what doesn't want to destabilize mahmoud been someone who is key to many of these policies off the trump administration now members of congress are talking about this being a turning point in the relationship between saudi arabia and the u.s. it's often unclear as to how far they will actually go we often hear a lot of bluster from congress where there are now bipartisan bills in the senate for example suggesting that sanctions may be imposed on anyone connected to the killing of jamal khashoggi with credible evidence now a cia report would be taken as credible evidence that would suggest them that congress if they passed that if they passed that bill then they would act to sanction muhammad bin solomon himself having said that though these things come and go in congress the sense that we're getting now there perhaps is instead of going
2:13 am
directly at muhammad been some on trying to destabilize him the administration is simply going to use all of this is leverage to get some restraint from ahmed been sultan on some one or the on yemen on cats how the blockade of qatar for example on dissidents being arrested in the kingdom of saudi arabia but the cia you can accept he's not going anywhere his position is secure but this might be an opportunity it seems for some of the administration to say look we'll keep him he's going to be central to our plans in the middle east but now maybe we can we can at least calm him down a little bit we can make him more. receptive to what we want rather than his particular whims in the region or she have thanks very much indeed for that she ever tante washington d.c. . well tony burton is outside the site a consulate in istanbul one has the latest from the when this steady trickle of revelations and information coming out from turkey. it's interesting that trump is
2:14 am
talking about jobs here they're talking about justice and the cia revelation is something that very much endorses what the turkish government has said almost from day one and this was a premeditated murder they pointed the finger of suspicion quietly at the crown saudi crown prince and this really affirms that what they've been saying is correct because this was far from what the saudis claim a and that hoc killing on the spur of the moment this was a meticulously planned operation to kill an opponent of the saudi stablish mint so it's reaffirm what they've said the latest information that's been coming out now to is concerning how he was killed either by a rope or a plastic bag over his head the newspaper which has been the source of a lot of the turkish government leaks said that mr casady was injected injected with a coagulant and this is suppose that this was because to stop the flow of blood so when his body was dismembered would be less traces of his d.n.a.
2:15 am
and there's been a joint saudi and turkish investigation into the killing no d.n.a. traces were found either at the saudi consulate way he was killed or at the consulate general's house so they did a pretty good job of cleaning up but this report reaffirms what the turkish government said but what does that mean at the end of the day because as tom says jobs are important but justice here is something they think is very important also where as we mentioned president trump is now in california where the number of people reported missing from an early wildfire has jumped more than one thousand and the region sheriff says as many as one thousand and eleven people on the thirties have recovered the remains of eight more victims raising the number of people killed to seventy one more than fifty two thousand people have been displaced. you have the management factor and i know you're. really been up on end and very well and gavin is good is going to be looking at together quite
