Not directly related to Khashoggi or the USA, but likely to ratchet up the pressure on the situation...

Quote :
Saudi journalist and writer Turki Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Jasser has died after being tortured while in detention, the New Khaleej reported yesterday.

Reporting human rights sources, the news site said that Al-Jasser was arrested and tortured to death after Saudi authorities claimed he administered the Twitter account Kashkool, which disclosed rights violations committed by the Saudi authorities and royal family.

The sources said that the authorities identified Al-Jasser as the admin using spies in Twitter’s regional office located in Dubai. He was arrested in March.

Canadian intelligence has heard an audio recording of the killing of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has confirmed.

"Canada has been fully briefed up on what Turkey had to share," he said.

Mr Trudeau is the first Western leader to confirm his country has listened to the purported tape of the murder at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Turkey's president said on Saturday that he had given copies to the US, UK, Germany, France and Saudi Arabia.

U.S. national security adviser John Bolton said Tuesday that an audio recording of journalist Jamal Khashoggi's death inside an Istanbul consulate did not appear to provide any link between the killers and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Bolton, speaking on the sidelines of a regional summit in Singapore, said that while he had not listened to the tape himself, "those who have listened to it" concluded that Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler is not implicated.

Trump admin/USA is still trying to give the Crown Prince cover.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the killing of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a bipartisan group of senior US senators have alleged after the CIA director gave them a classified briefing on the grisly murder inside the Gulf kingdom's diplomatic mission shocked the world.
...
The clear and unusually biting assessment put Republican senators at odds with the White House, which has steadfastly refused to cast blame on Saudi Arabia's leadership for the grisly death of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist, the New York Times reported.
...
Yet lawmakers remained divided over what steps to take next, after a stinging vote last week to consider a measure cutting off American military aid to Saudi Arabia's bombing campaign, the Times said.
...
Indeed, after Haspel's briefing, the groundswell of certainty and disgust will likely complicate the Trump administration's efforts to protect the prince and its relationship with Saudi Arabia, even as lawmakers have yet to coalesce around a legislative response, CNN reported.

Among the options: pull back from US involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen; deny any arms sales with Saudi Arabia; slap the crown prince with sanctions, along with a resolution saying the Senate finds him complicit in murder, it said.

How the legislative push gets resolved is uncertain, but the floor fight could begin as soon as Monday -- and put the Trump administration on the defensive, the network commented.

curious that on this occasion it feels like a degree of truthfulness comes from the see eye ay ........

What makes this incident ( cos its not a biggie in the world of control ) so different that this response is generated ?

I've been pondering that same question for a while now. I can only guess that MBS isn't playing ball with the right people or he was complicit in something more egregious than just Khashoggi's murder.
