'Traitor!': Turkish paper reveals alleged excerpts from Khashoggi's last moments

The Latest: Trump says no new punishment for writer’s murder

US national security adviser John Bolton said earlier he didn't think the tape implicated the crown prince.

The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency has concluded that Prince Mohammed ordered last month's killing in Istanbul, according to several news organizations including the Washington Post and the New York Times.

Among the evidence cited in the report, the official said, is the relationship between members of the kill team and the crown prince, and the hierarchy of the Saudi system.

After the journalist disappeared, Saudi Arabia initially insisted Khashoggi had walked out of the consulate after visiting the building on October 2. "It would be a wonderful gift to them directly from the United States!", Trump wrote.

"We in the kingdom know that such allegations about the crown prince have no basis in truth and we categorically reject them, whether through leaks or not", Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir was quoted as saying in Saudi-owned Al Sharq Al Awsat newspaper in the first Saudi official comment on the Central Intelligence Agency report.

"There are still more questions for us than answers in the clarification of this case (Khashoggi), both in the act as such, and in the question who the backers of such an act are", Mass said.
