The missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi appears to be dead, US President Donald Trump has told reporters, saying there would be “severe” consequences for whoever is behind it.
“It certainly looks that way to me,” Trump said when asked if Khashoggi was dead. “It’s very sad.

Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey two weeks ago. Turkey has accused Saudi Arabia of sending a hit squad to abduct and assassinate the journalist, who wrote a column for the Washington Post. Riyadh has denied responsibility.

Potential consequences for Saudi Arabia “will have to be very severe,” Trump told reporters on Thursday, before departing for Montana. “I mean it’s bad, bad stuff, but we’ll see what happens.”

It’s obvious that Turkey is making a false-flag.
MIT (Turkish intelligence) is well known at doing murders, they’re even sued for multiple murders attempts in Germany and for terrorism in France.
Think about whom the crime profits to :
Turkey is at odds with USA and even whole EU and, how funny, they just freed the US pastor who was jailed for 2 years on very very dubious motives.
Saudis did a terrible mistake by allowing Turkish cops to search the embassy : it allowed these to plant evidences. They should have let e.g. Interpol, Europol or FBI in, not the Turks!
