Khashoggi, a USA resident who was a columnist for the Washington Post, was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October. The United Nations human rights chief on Wednesday called for an worldwide investigation to determine who was responsible for the murder of the Saudi journalist in Istanbul two months ago.
The head of the CIA Gina Haspel organized a private briefing among us senators, where he presented evidence of the involvement of the crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman to the murder of opposition journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has pushed to keep worldwide attention on the murder - the order for which he says came from the highest levels of the Saudi government - even as U.S. President Donald Trump has said Washington should not take action that would undermine its relationship with the kingdom.
A senior Turkish official said Wednesday that the prosecutor's move "reflects the view that the Saudi authorities won't take formal action against those individuals".
"We have reached a breaking point where the president seems to prioritize geopolitics - the impact that Saudi Arabia can have as a swing oil producer and its impact on global energy prices - versus preserving an worldwide system that values freedom and speech". "There's a smoking saw", Graham said, referring to reports from the Turkish government that said Saudi agents used a bone saw to dismember Khashoggi after he was killed in the Istanbul consulate, where he had gone to obtain paperwork enabling him to marry his fiancee.
Both Republicans and Democrats urged President Donald Trump himself to strongly condemn the killing after he stood by the crown prince.

AIDS remains the leading cause of death in women aged 15 to 44, and the second-largest mortality factor for teenagers worldwide. The group and other NGOs send volunteers into the field to survey people and convince them to get tested.
A 15-man Saudi team was sent to Turkey to kill the Washington Post columnist, Middle East Eye previously reported, and his murder took seven minutes.
Despite denials by Riyadh, Saudi Arabia's reputation has been tarnished, with U.S. senators pointing the finger at the crown prince after a Central Intelligence Agency briefing Tuesday. "Now the question is how do you separate the Saudi crown prince and his group from the nation itself?" Graham said that may be true, but there is certainly a "smoking bonesaw", alluding to the murder weapon suspected to have killed Khashoggi.
"There's not a smoking gun but a smoking saw". Among those sanctioned were Qahtani, who was formerly a top aide to the crown prince.
Asiri, however, was not on the list of 17 people sanctioned by Washington.
The chief prosecutor said in a statement that there is a "strong suspicion that Asiri and al-Qahtani were among planners of Khashoggi's killing", the daily said.
