"Next month, I plan to give the Senate another chance to vote on my resolution to end our support for the war in Yemen, to reassert congressional authority over matters of war, and to show the Saudis that they do not have a blank check to continue human rights violations".

Earlier on Monday, Turkish and Saudi officials arrived at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul after the start of a joint probe into the missing journalist.

President Donald Trump has said he has spoken with Saudi Arabia's king, who "denies any knowledge" of what happened to the Saudi journalist who disappeared after entering the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul last week.

Trump called Khashoggi's disappearance a "terrible situation".

He said he didn't think any government officials should go to Saudi Arabia, including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's planned trip to an economic conference October 23, "until we know exactly what happened here".

"I don't want to get into his mind - but it sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers", he said.

"Listen I am concerned", he said. We're going to try getting to the bottom of it very soon.

Turkish officials have said they fear a Saudi assassination team that flew into and out of Turkey on October 2 killed and dismembered Khashoggi. It remained unclear what evidence they might be able to uncover.

A cleaning crew walked into the consulate hours ahead of the investigative team's arrival. That means the USA needs Saudi Arabian petroleum more than ever, narrowing America's options to punish the kingdom for its suspected role in Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance. With such a lack of clarity, the administration has not ruled out any possible scenario.

"He may go to Turkey".

Ahmed Hafidh, Egypt's foreign ministry spokesman, said on Sunday that the country was following the repercussions of Khashoggi's disappearance with great "concern" and warned against using his case politically against Saudi Arabia.

"Canada remains very troubled by the disappearance of prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and calls for a through, credible and transparent investigation into the serious allegations about Mr. Kashoggi's disappearance".

President Donald Trump spoke with King Salman on Monday, after which he floated the possibility that Khashoggi died during an unauthorized operation. The Saudi government could not be reached immediately for comment on the CNN report. He and Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, have forged close ties.

Trump has oscillated between threatening "severe punishment" against the Saudi regime to downplaying the importance of Khashoggi's fate.

The kingdom's warning was not only a response to Trump, but also targeted at United States decision-makers amid rising calls for Congress to step in and put key arms sales on hold, he said.

Either a family friend, a Saudi-owned company or the state's sovereign wealth fund could bid for the Glazer family's private shares in the club valued at nearly £3billion, the report said.

The Arab League affirmed on Sunday its rejection of any political pressure applied on Saudi Arabia in relation to the Khashoggi affair. Both reports cited anonymous people said to be familiar with the Saudi plans.

Mr. Trump also has cited Riyadh as a major customer of US military exports, but oil is key in the end. And frankly the fact that it's a reporter you could say in many respects it. brings it to a level. "So far it's just the rumor, the rumor of a report coming out", he said.

How was the consulate search conducted?

It comes as Saudi Arabia has denied involvement in his disappearance. Cengiz contacts the Turkish police.

The furor over Khashoggi has dealt a serious setback to Prince Mohammed's aggressive pitch for the kingdom as a destination for foreign investment.

Business barons including British billionaire Richard Branson and Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi have pulled out of the event, dubbed "Davos in the desert", due to the Khashoggi scandal.
