Moffit's firm denies targeting Saudi critics saying it was an internal document

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman called the son of Jamal Khashoggi, the kingdom announced early Monday, to express condolences for the death of the journalist killed at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul by officials that allegedly included a member of the royal's entourage.

Saudi's official news agency said both King Salman and Prince Mohammed had phoned Khashoggi's son Salah to express their condolences.

In an interview with The Washington Post published late Saturday, Trump stepped back from his stance that the Saudis had earlier provided a credible explanation for the death of the journalist inside their Istanbul consulate, but he said he remained confident in the leadership of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Newspaper publishers and editors around the world are demanding Saudi Arabia provide immediate answers in the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Speaking on Fox News Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al Jubeir on Sunday said, "We are determined to punish those who are responsible for this murder".

"This was an operation where individuals ended up exceeding the authorities and responsibilities they had".

The charges largely predated Manafort's tenure on Trump's successful presidential campaign in 2016. Even if those charges were dropped, Manafort may face a sentence of a decade or more in prison.

"WAN-IFRA calls on the Turkish authorities to urgently provide proof of its claims of Saudi state involvement in the murder of Mr. Khashoggi, as well as increased global pressure for a full, verifiable accounting from the Saudi monarchy as to the events leading up to his death", the statement read.

"The time for hollow rhetoric is over and it can not be business as usual with Saudi Arabia".

The kingdom has fired five top officials and arrested 18 others in an investigation into the killing - a move that has widely been viewed as an attempt to cover up the Crown Prince's role in the murder.

The same man was seen in Khashoggi's clothing, according to the Turkish case, at the city's world-famous Blue Mosque just hours after the journalist was last seen alive entering the consulate on October 2.

"We are far from seeing everything on the table and the perpetrators being brought to justice", she said.

Trump concedes Khashoggi likely dead, threatens consequences
The US resident and critic of the Saudi government was last seen entering the consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago. We trust that this investigation will provide clarity and answers regarding the disappearance of Mr Khashoggi.

A source close to the Turkish investigation told Middle East Eye that once the two men returned, the Saudi hit squad reviewed footage of the imposter on the consulate's own CCTV cameras. Saudi Arabia has been trying to claw back global market share, especially as Iran faces new US oil sanctions beginning in November.

A joint Turkish-Saudi team completed an investigation into the case on Thursday after searching the residence of the consul general as well as the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

"The circle is tightening around the crown prince", said one of its headlines. The deal "will allow us to intervene to rebalance the market in any appropriate time from January onward", he said.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that details of Khashoggi's killing will be revealed in a speech that Erdogan will give in parliament on Tuesday. Bob Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, believes that sanctions are good, but NOT great.

It cited a Turkish official as describing the man as a "body double" and a member of the Saudi team sent to Istanbul to target the writer.

Trump said: "We'd like to find out where it is and what happened".
