Saudi murder won’t go without US response: Pence
Pence said Oct. 23 CIA Director Gina Haspel was in Turkey reviewing the facts of what Pence called a "brutal murder." He offered condolences to Khashoggi’s family.
Speaking in Washington at an event hosted by The Washington Post, Pence would not elaborate on what a possible U.S. response would be. Khashoggi, a Post contributor, lived in Virginia.
Asked if the U.S. would sanction members of Saudi Arabia’s royal family if they were found to have been complicit, Pence said that’s a decision for President Donald Trump.
He says Trump will make a decision that reflects the values and national security interests of the nation and will "make sure the world knows the truth."
