It has been two weeks since the Washington Post contributor and Virginia resident, a critic of the current Saudi leadership, entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to obtain paperwork he needed for his marriage.
In this December 15, 2014 file photo, Jamal Khashoggi, then general manager of a new Arabic news channel speaks during a press conference, in Manama, Bahrain.

"The efforts to reduce the risk to the United States of America from the world's largest state sponsor of terror, Iran - the Saudis have been great partners in working alongside us on those issues". The Saudis have denied involvement.
The investigators left the residence around 1:30 am, but some of them headed to the nearby consulate to conduct a search, which was continuing into the early hours of Thursday.
