US President Donald Trump said he believes it is possible that “rogue killers” could be responsible for the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Speaking to journalists outside the White House on Monday about Khashoggi’s disappearance, Trump said: “It sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers. Who knows?”

Offering the rogue killer theory, Trump cited King Salman of Saudi Arabia’s “firm” denial that Riyadh had anything to do with the situation — despite the fact that Turkey claims to possess evidence proving the journalist was murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

“[King Salman’s] denial to me could not have been stronger,” Trump told reporters.

Earlier, Trump said that he was sending Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Riyadh and “other places if necessary” to figure out what has happened to Khashoggi.

I’m pretty sure fairies entered the room undetected and whisk Khashoggi away trough an open window.

Huhu, with the NSA monitoring everything and serious galaxy of spy-sats, IMHO, Yanks are not fooled by Erdogan.
And how funny, at the same time the Ankara’s roach pretends having proofs he strangely doesn’t publishes, the US pastor was released… How strange synchronicity!
