After lobbying, Catholic Church won $1.4 billion in virus aid

"By now, big companies politically connected cos. Cashing in on the massive federal rescue package that was designed to help small businesses whether economic devastation wreaked by the Corona virus pandemic. Today. We are learning courtesy of The Associated Press that the US Roman Catholic Church manage to secure billions of dollars in loans from that rescue package through the Paycheck protection program. Reporter Michael Risen. D's has been reporting on the Catholic Church for a long time. He is one of the reporters who has been crunching these numbers and trying to track where that money is going. Hey there. How are you? Hey, not so bad. Nice to Beecher. How much money Exactly are we talking about? Well what? What? What I and my colleague re stunk Lin identified and I got to really give a shadow to Reese here because he's a great date a reporter, But we were able to identify between $1.4 billion a cz Muchas 3.5 billion and the reason there's a range here is because the small business administration did not release precise loan amounts. They only released ranges of loans. Oh, and we identified 35 3500 loans worth between 1.4 billion and 3.5 billion. OK, so a huge range, but we are talking upward of a 1,000,000,000. That's 1,000,000,000 with a B. It's a lot of money. How how has it been spent? Well, it's been spent as far as we know. We don't have Ah, very clear accounting. I have to say, as usual from the Catholic Church on precisely how the money is being spent. Where assured it's being spent for for payroll and utilities keeping people employed. But I have to say there is no monitoring of this program. It's self monitoring itself. Certification. So we don't actually know for sure. Do we know for sure whether any of it has been devoted to to help cover past gaps in the finances? Um and I will note that many Catholic diocese were in really bad financial shape going into the pandemic because they had to pay out these big settlements to victims of clergy sexual abuse. Does that factor into how any of this rescue money is being spent at all? Or do we know? Well, this is one of the points we made in our story Is that a lot of this money eyes going to diocese that might be experiencing financial stress not so much because of the corona virus pandemic, but because of the large payouts they've had to make to clergy abuse survivors, sometimes in the hundreds of millions of dollars. You never hear much about these payments. You do hear a lot about supposed stress from the pandemic, And I think a lot of that stresses Israel, but in effect, I think what's happening here is you're seeing Churches who are stressed financially because of clergy sex abuse, getting a break through the federal government through through direct payments from the federal government that are being used to pay actually the salaries of priests and ministers, which is unprecedented. As we noted, this money was supposed to help small businesses. The Catholic Church is not a small business how to church leaders defend us. Well, I think the first thing that happened is because of the downturn in the economy was so severe. I think the government wanted to just get a lot of money out there. So there was an exception made. For religious groups they could they could. They could apply like any small business. But then what happened is there was a second break that religion's got and the second break. Is that they were exempted from the rule that says that on ly small businesses, Khun get the loans, and the small businesses are defined by businesses with 500 employees, and that includes the employees and all of their subsidiaries. So we find now that religious groups are exempt from that rule, And that's why, for example, 80 churches, parishes in the same diocese can apply, and that's why The church was able to get so many loans and so much money and you know, I'd like to say that even though we identified between 1.4 billion and 3.5 billion We know that's an undercount. We know we were not able to identify all the loan. So the the money is really quite large. We just have a minute or so left. But do we know whether other religious institutions did other churches get this benefit? Or was this just the U. S Catholic Church? No. All religions got this benefit Thie Catholic Church, of course, is very A large organization. This is a This is a global religion that is headquartered in Rome. It is its own country. In fact, it's headquartered in Vatican City. It so its own nation. It's very time consuming toe. Identify exactly who was giving these loans we know now. So we have We have a pretty good idea of what the Catholic Church got other religions did benefit. I can't give you those numbers right now. The data was just released this week. All right, well, we'll look forward to when you come back and tell us when you've dug through the rest of it. Thank you so much for sharing your reporting today. My pleasure.

"Returning to our breaking news on Jamal Shukshis fade in President Trump's complained that the Saudis are being assumed guilty until proven innocent earlier today, the president tweeted about what some have reported a complicating factor in this whole affair. Namely his multimillion dollar financial ties over the years to various Saudi citizens. But here's what the president tweeted quote for the record. I have no financial interest in Saudi Arabia or Russia for that matter. And he's suggestion that I have is just more fake news of which there is plenty. No financial interest in Saudi Arabia is the key line there. What he doesn't mention is the millions he's gotten from more than a handful of Saudis, CNN business and political correspondent Cristina Alexi. Saudi Arabia, and I get along great with all of they buy apartments from me. This spend forty million fifty million my supposed to dislike them. I like them very much Trump's financial ties with the Saudis date back to the nineteen ninety s in nine hundred ninety. One when one of his casino projects was faltering under a mountain of debt, a Saudi prince purchase Trump's two hundred eighty one square foot yacht for the hefty price of twenty million dollars ten years later, public record show Trump sold the forty fifth floor of his Trump world tower in New York to the kingdom of Saudi Arabia for four point, five million dollars in recent years since Trump took office, his hotels have benefited from Saudi business between October twenty sixteen and March twenty seventeen. A Saudi lobbying firm paid Trump's Washington DC hotel more than two hundred seventy thousand dollars for food and accommodations. We don't know really very much about his efforts to open other properties in Saudi Arabia. We don't who is. Earners would have been, we don't who would finance them and we don't know if you could restart them again down the road. Trump's Manhattan hotel on central park, west solids, revenue increase during the first quarter of twenty eighteen in part because of a visit from Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman according to a letter obtained by the Washington Post in the letter. The hotel's general manager wrote that been so men didn't stay at the hotel himself, but said, due to our close industry relationships, we were able to accommodate many of the accompanying travelers. Of course, the public doesn't know the full extent of Trump's business ties to the kingdom because he is not release his tax returns or other financial information would certainly be very easy for foreign officials or people close to them to drop a whole lot of money without us knowing about it unless or until we see the business records and conceivably tax returns as well. We do know from his 2016 financial disclosure. Trump had one hundred and forty four registered companies with dealings in more than two dozen countries. Eight of them were Saudi related companies. All of those companies have since been dissolved returnable situation as the cries for the president to take action against Saudi Arabia grow louder. Americans are left to wonder what's driving Trump's decisions. Now, of course, the larger political question is, are, is this relationship or these business deals part of the president's consideration when it makes decisions about how to go forward. Christina. What's the Trump organization saying about this Trump's spokesperson responded in a statement to me Anderson saying like many global real estate companies. We have explored opportunities in many markets that said, we don't have any plans for expansion into Saudi Arabia, but Anderson when I pressed further and asked about Saudi purchases of Trump condos or hotels days, I did not get a response Anderson, Christina washy. Appreciate it. Thanks. I want to check in with Chris, what he's working on for prompt time. Chris, all we got good stuff for you tonight. My friend Anderson even you're gonna have to smile for there. It is. So we're gonna be talking about what's going on with Saudi Arabia and the president's disposition toward it that it's like Cavanaugh. He's guilty until proven innocent. Why would he say that? Why would he call a woman horseface what is going on? And of course, the big headline about Donald Trump our president saying that Michael Cohen, his former personal attorney lied what. An interesting position when he has to know Anderson. I'm a command away from playing a tape that proves that he is lying and we'll do that tonight. All right. I'll be listening five minutes from now. Chris. Thanks very much endorsement. Yes, I'm government there..

"It's become normal that this happens and this is what the president United States does, and there are plenty of people, you know, at a rally who laugh and applaud and are right there with it. Women included. Yeah. Yeah. It's typical not normal and but yeah, it's become something that we've become used to hearing. And I think that the reason you see just it's not just men her laughing at it. There are women that are laughing at us because of what I was saying before, I think that this is very ingrained in our consciousness and the way we think about things. The idea that women's highest value comes from the way that they look or the idea that they're not as smart as man. So they have a low I q or if you're a racist person that you believe that a black person has a lower IQ. He is tapping into things that people think and and I and unfortunately people are going to get mad at me for saying that Trump. Reporter Trump supporters, think this way. Well, all I can say is, why are you laughing at this? Why are you supporting this? Because people who find it totally repugnant and recognize it for what it is, don't support him and don't want to be associated with him. Well, there's a basic lack of manners. Yeah, Dave Gergen, Pearson powers, appreciate it. Thank you. That's back to our breaking news on the missing Washington Post columnist President Trump claims. He has no financial interest in Saudi Arabia, no reasons to be sympathetic to them. We'll check out that claim when we come back.

"He went on great, he continued now I can go after horseface and her third Ray lawyer in the great state of Texas. She will confirm the letter. She signed. She knows nothing about me a total con- presume United States called her horseface. Now, before I tell you how MS Daniels responded, you should not recently released a book in which she details quite graphically her alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump. With some very personal descriptions of him without about with that out of the way here goes, she responded, quote, ladies and gentlemen, may I present your president in addition to his shortcomings, he has demonstrated his incompetence hatred of women and lack of control on Twitter again, and perhaps a pension for bestiality game on tiny, happy Tuesday evening. So just tonight, in that interview, the president was asked about the use of his word horseface. He told the AP quote, you can take it any way you want joining me as a former adviser to several presidents who didn't have Twitter, David, Gergen, and USA today columnists Cureton powers. So curious when the prison says, you can take the horse phase comment any way you want. I'm not sure what other way there is to take it other than as an insult, right? It's obviously supposed to be an insult. And I think a lot of people would say, well, he insults a lot of people. He, you know, makes up names for men, you know, our low or or jab or or whatever it is. But I I. think the attacks on women's appearances, which she has a long history of is different, and it's different because men are not as affected by attacks on their appearance because men are not as valued for their appearances as they as women are in our society. And so it's a very, I, it's it's a much more harmful personal attack for a woman to receive that kind of attack. And I think that he knows that and I think that it's particularly humiliating in a way that it isn't for a man. And so you can look at a stormy Daniels and say, well, she doesn't have a horseface. She's actually a beautiful woman, but so what if she did you know that that's the point the point is you don't have to be a beautiful woman, but in in in the the world that Donald Trump lives in, you actually do have to be a beautiful woman. And if you aren't a beautiful woman, then you're not valuable and you don't matter. Dude, I mean, did you ever think you'd see the president United States call the woman whom he allegedly had an affair with horseface. I mean, I, it's called never call anybody calling anybody horseface. I think it's a sad night, embarrassing for the country Anderson. I, we've got this cover up that's emerging with regard to the Saudi situation. And now this, this, this craziness of the yet another insult. I don't know what the totals are, but I think that he is now publicly insulted just about as many women as have accused him of sexual misconduct. It's a close call, which one which which bucket has more people in it, but he continues to do this. I, I agree with Pearson, absolutely. That he goes after looks more than anything else. But he also talks about people's low IQ q. He did that against a minority woman. You know, he talked about people bleeding and where that's coming from, and you know, sort of like what you sort of gasping, you know, you have to encourage people to leave. I, I don't know there's any. This is. Just what where we are as people, I don't know that he's ever going to change we. He is what he is, and it's embarrassing in, but some people still like him because he's got a good economy. I, you know, it's a, it's a very, very odd tradeoff these days. Yeah, I just want to play some of the things that can they Trump has said particularly about about women that some of the David reference. Let's just play this. So you can see there was blood coming out of her eyes blood coming out of her wherever she would not be my first choice that I can tell. You don't know, that would not be my first choice also said about Carly Fiorina, quote, look at that face. Would anyone vote for that retweeted photo comparing how crews to Maloney Trump in an unfavorable way? It's, I mean. P cursing people..

"This has happened before in the sixties when it king hit, lost his mind and King Faisal came in and and took over and removed them. And I think frankly, that's one needs to happen now, Mike, what do you think about about that essentially separating, you know, relationship with Saudi Arabia from relationship with NBS? No, I think that history has taught us that it's dangerous for the United States to think that it can micromanage the states of the Middle East, and we start reaching into other countries and saying, who can rule and who can't rule. We're going to get a lot of consequences that that we don't intend. So I would I would counsel caution. I, I would want to find out what exactly happened. And then I would want to try to work with the NBS and the Saudi government to get a more stable policy process and to get more reliable partner. Part of the reason that that that they have become somewhat erotic is that they're in a completely new environment with the rise of Iran all across the all across the region, which was we have to be honest facilitated by the policy of the United States. So we have kind of created this unstable environment around them, and we're not, they're giving them the guiding hand we have in the past. I think we have to understand the broader strategic context here we're not good. No, go ahead. No, I was just gonna ask you under. There's understanding the broader strategic context as my talking about. There's others concerns that if there are no ramifications for this, then then it gives other autocratic rulers kind of encouragement to, you know, kidnap reporters in their consulates in torture people and and the US isn't going to do anything about it. That's exactly right Anderson. Donald Trump has basically given every tyrant on the planet, a license to kill. I mean, just on Sunday on the sixty minutes interview, he was asked about what Putin does which includes trying to kill dissidents in Great Britain and and Donald Trump base. If he said, well, it's not in our country. So you know, he doesn't care. This basically gives a license to the worst elements on the world. And I think is contrary to American interests and I would sight to you. The example of Ronald Reagan who did not look the other way when American allies and the Philippines are El Salvador or South Korea were committing human rights abuses when there was a people power revolution against Marcos and eighty six. Reagan sided. The protesters, and I think that's something we need to keep in mind in the case of Saudi Arabia. We can keep our alliance with Saudi Arabia, but I agree with Bob, I don't. I don't see how NBS stays as crown prince after this erotic reckless and humane behavior. Next boot, Mike Duran, Bob era. Appreciate a good discussion. President Trump did not have anything on his public schedule today. And one of the first tweets of the day was a an attack against Daniels after he judge's decision yesterday dismissed her defamation lawsuit against him. We'll tell you what the president said, what she said and the fallout just ahead. Support for Anderson Cooper, three sixty comes from our friends at rocket.

"They're no separate power centers, including in the national guard. He clearly, I mean, it's almost certain that he ordered this, whether it went wrong or not. We still don't know agree with Mike. But what we do know is the evidence so far that they've produced the pictures of the. Planes arriving, the painting of the consulate, the fifteen that come in the the Saudis have provided no sculpture. Tori evidence to suggest these people were terse as they're claiming. That's just silly. I mean, seriously Anderson. You don't get better evidence than this and for the president to say, it's a rogue operation. I, frankly, he's covering up murder and so's Pompeii when we should worry about that. Because if this goes without any, you know punishment of Saudi Arabia, we're going to see other dictators doing the same thing, whether it's Russia or any other country. Mike, do you think this is covering up murder? I think that other countries are doing things like this. We know what the the Russians did in in in in Britain. And the most important thing for us is to think about what our strategic interests are and where we want this thing to come out in in the end. And I would hate if we rushed in a fit of righteousness and. Took action against Saudi Arabia that that endangered our larger strategic interests in the region. And the number one interest is in my view containing Iran, we've got the sanctions on Iran coming coming due on November. Fourth, we need the Saudis to help us substitute their oil for Iranian oil around the globe. There are massive interests involved here and to rush on the basis of this horrible event. And I don't mean to suggest it isn't horrible and and destabilize Saudi Arabia or imperil our relations with them, I think would be a mistake. You know, actually, what about that? I'm double doubles. Bargains are made all the time in the world of, you know, real politics around the world is this one of those cases where the the larger interests of of our country and Saudi Arabia mandate turning a blind eye? No, we should not sacrifice. Jamal kashogi on the altar of you. Saudi relations. The Trump administration has already made a grave error by giving NBS a young man with very little knowledge and very little judgment and how he conducts fares, basically, a blank check to do whatever he wants, including kidnapping, the prime minister of Lebanon, including bombing Yemen, including blockading cutter, the crown prince's made a lot of mistakes. We need to hold them accountable because it's pretty clear that he was responsible for this operation. And that doesn't mean we're going to break with Saudi Arabia, but remember NBS has only been crowned prince last year. There are a lot of other Princess who could easily take place who are not implicated in this murder. And if Donald Trump does not insist that there is some accountability for this murder of an American resident in American journalists that will send a very grave message to the world at sends a message that the United States is abdicating its moral authority and beat. It actually sends a message a weakness on the part of Donald Trump because he is reinforcing the message that he bullies the week. People like stormy Daniels or Christine, Blasi Ford. But at the same time he. Simple and cowers before the strong, whether it's Kim Jong, honor Vladimir Putin or m b s? That is not a message. The president of the United States should be sending Anderson. I want to pick up this conversation. We gotta take a quick break. We'll also get reaction to the breaking news from Kuchis editor what colleagues and the Washington Post make of the latest reporting and the war. Some pretty ugly words between President Trump and stormy Daniels, which max just re reference would each is now calling the other ahead on three sixty.

"The Saudi government and the secretary of state when he was down there appear to be taking their word for it. It is. It is starting to sound like no matter what the Saudi government says, this White House, this administration sort of taking their word for it and Anderson we should point out. That's not why we don't go back to the comparison have on that is not where a lot of Republicans are up on Capitol Hill right now. Lindsey, Graham Senator from South Carolina who was on board with president, Brad Kavanagh is not when it comes to the Saudi government and he wants to see the Saudis give more answers than what they're giving right now. Anderson. Yeah, Jim Acosta priest from the White House. Thanks again, our breaking news raises the question of whether this new account of disappearances a true one or a cover story. And the president's handling this is of course subject unto itself here to talk about all of it is Mike Duran, senior. Rector of the national Security Council under President, George W Bush former c. i. officer, Bob Baier in Washington, Post columnist max boot. Recent author of the new book, the corrosion of conservatism, why I left the right mex-. It seems like there's two separate issues here. There's what the US should do about this, which maybe we'll get to a little bit in a moment, but just in terms of what actually occurred and trying to aspertain what actually occurred. I'm the Saudis, their initial story clearly was not true. They were. They were saying, this man left the the the and they had no knowledge of what happened to him after that. It seems like that that has changed. Do you buy this notion? If if their story is going to be that this was a an interrogation that just went bad that a guy die while being interrogated. Does that make much sense to you? Given what we know thus far about who some of these people involved were? No, I mean, this this cover up doesn't make any sense Anderson. It's clear that the Saudis have been lying like crazy. And they're trying to figure out how to get out of it and they're floating. These lame cover stories claiming it was an interrogation. I got out of control as if it's okay to kidnap and torture a journalist, and that's somehow makes makes it just fine or claiming that it was road killers when we know that the people who are involved as was just being reported or actually very close to the crown prince. I'm b. s the only thing that's more incredible than the Saudi cover stories is the fact that Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo are pretending to believe what the Saudis are saying. I mean, this is the most embarrassing appeasement of a dictator since the Helsinki summit in July Mike. In your opinion, does it make? Is it possible that the crown prince Mohammad bin salon, who is the power who had detained people in the Ritz Carlton, you know, Saudi officials, even some members of the Royal family for some time would not have had knowledge if in fact, some people involved in his close protection detail. One of the top forensic surgeons in the country who's affiliated with the government was involved in this. I would find it unlikely, but I would also like to notice skepticism about everything that we've heard because most of our information about what what happened there is coming from the Turkish security services and Turkey has very bad relations with Saudi Arabia and his crew using this to get gained some advantage over them. I think the the Saudis probably played into their hands in in this regard, but I don't think we know exactly what happened inside the consulate. I, I think that I think that's absolutely true. And and you know, they're the some of the stuff is publishing a pro Turkish government newspaper that reporting about the the the, you know, the the apple watch Bobby discounted that or early on as being probably some sort of cover story for perhaps Turkish intelligence bugging the the consulate, Bob, the reporting from the New York Times, at least several of the suspects were part of the crown prince's entourage. Is there any scenario in European Underwood's the crown prince would know what happened Anderson? No, he runs the country. He runs the police, the ministry of interior, the security services, anybody who's not loyal to him has been removed..

"Can you just explain what exactly the connections are between these suspects that end and a crown prince having you said that that several of them you've identified as close like a close protection security detail that travels with the crown prince. Yes, that's right. And we've done that in different ways. The most interesting one is mister moot, traveling of who we found in photographs with the crown prince. You know, he's getting on planes with him in Paris and Madrid, and he's in Houston and Boston, and at the United Nations when the crown prince is also there. Interestingly enough, a few years ago, he was listed as a diplomat at the Saudi embassy in London, probably a cover for intelligence operative of some kind of others. We've corroborated in various ways, one through an individual human source of professional in France of knew him as a member of the security detail. Another one from a news reports in Saudi Arabia that described promotion in the Royal guard and a third through a combination of things, including a kind of a database of phone numbers and phone identification. In Saudi Arabia. It's fascinating, David Proctor, I appreciate it. Thank you too. Thanks a lot. Well, now how all this new reporting and all these new developments are being received at the White House. You know, Jim Acosta is there for us tonight. So Jim, the president tweeting and talking about dramatic a lot today, what what's the latest. That's right Anderson and perhaps the most profound thing that happened today in terms of how the the White House was was finding all of this is when the president spoke with the AP earlier this afternoon, and the president was asked about what he thinks in terms of how the Saudis have handled all of this and the president is essentially leaping to the defense of the Saudi kingdom saying, here we go again, in his words, the Associated Press with you're guilty until proven innocent. The president went on to say Anderson during that interview with the a p that he sees the Saudis and sort of the same way he sees report nominee now supreme court Justice, Brad Cavanaugh, who face those allegations of sexual assault. The president essentially saying that the Saudis can relate to Brad Kavanagh. However, you're supposed to make sense of that. I suppose that's up to the viewer, but that's how the president made the comparison. He also said that he spoke with the Saudi of the Saudis earlier today, the Saudi Crown prince and tweeted that this Audis are totally denying all of this. Once again, accepting their denials. The prisoners vote to the crown Princess are rated, do we know much more about about that conversation? And because also searchers, Mike Pompeo was in was in Riyadh today and is heading to encore tomorrow. That's right. The president tweeted that he spoke with the Saudi Crown crown prince Mohammad bin Salman while he was with the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo there in Riyadh in that essentially, what Mohammed bin Salman reiterates Mike Pompeo. He reiterated to the president. The president says, Mohammed bin Salman told him that he had no knowledge of these events that took place at the at the Saudi consulate in Turkey Anderson. What's more is we should point out. Mike Pompeo told reporters according to a readout of of the secretary of state's comments. I think this is interesting. He said during each of today's beatings of Saudi leadership, strongly denied any knowledge of what took place in their consulate Anderson. The secretary of state went on to say, my assessment from these meetings is that there is a serious commitment to determine all the facts and ensure accountability, including accountability for Saudi Arabia's, senior leaders, it it is rather breathtaking that the secretary of state would make that kind of comment Anderson given the fact that the Saudis have. Have been lying about all of this for the past week and a half to two weeks. Keep in mind they were putting out statements Anderson is we've talked about denying any responsibility whatsoever, having any knowledge or any ties to what happened whatsoever that is that is starting to fall apart as a story for.

"Doctors are often present during interogations, but I assure jn a friend's ex surgeon with a bone saw that just seems like an odd detail or an odd piece of equipment to bring to something. If you're not planning on song something or somebody up. Indeed. And why would the operation be taking place in the first place? Why would they be interrogating and potentially trying to abduct Jamal Kush shook, Jay from Turkey to Saudi Arabia? If this wasn't something of vital national security importance if they didn't see this or if they didn't see because shook g. as dissident who pose some kind of existential threat, why wouldn't they have gone to the top? Also another important detail coming out from Turkish authorities today Anderson. They shared with CNN passports scans of seven of the men who were part of this operation. Lo and behold, one of them has been seen on state television alongside crown prince, Mohammad bin Salman. Everything seems to be pointing to the idea that the men who are involved with this operation. Indeed, the men who organized it or the man, I should say, organize it had a close relationship were often in close proximity with the man who is the defacto leader already of this country. Cush award appreciate the details. Now to that point, more new reporting on on just how closely connected the alleged killers are to NBS Mohammed bin Salman by extension, the level of deniability he has. It comes in the pages of the New York Times. David Kirkpatrick is on the byline. He's also the author of into the hands of the soldiers, freedom and chaos in Egypt and the Middle East. Dave, what can you tell us about these four suspects and their connections to crown prince Mohammad bin Salman. Whether it's really by suspects of interest here, four of them, we have identified as security men essentially the travel with crown prince Mohammad. So basically, these are members of his security detail who Turks officials have also said, flew into is temporal in participated in what they say is the killing of Jamal for showing in addition, the fifth one is the now famous forensics doctor who brought his bone saw to the to the events in the consulate with a. The notion the president put forward yesterday. This was done by quote, rogue killers. Does that make any sense given what you're learning? I mean, if if the close security personnel, the crown prince are there and you know, the top friends surgeon is shown up with a bone saw flying in on a private jet. That doesn't sound like a rogue operation. It becomes harder and harder to believe because you you when you realized that these guys at least one of these guys. We have photographic evidence that he is with the crown prince again and again in city after city, you know, looking on a like a goon really. And so you have to picture these guys saying, hey boss, I'm going to be gone for a few days. I'm gonna go over to Istanbul. The take care that they would Shoghi. How does he not know it's very hard to believe, and yet that's what we're told the Saudis are going to try to suggest and this forensic doctor. I mean, one typically. I don't think brings friends Dr to an interrogation. Yes. Sometimes people wanna have a doctor president at interrogation, but not one with a bone saw. Yeah, that's yes. You might think, well, you bring along doctor in case the person you're questioning needs medical care, but this doctor specialty is people who are already dead. And in fact there dismemberment so it's, it is stringent as you say. He's a high ranking figure in the Saudi medical establishment. He may have been the foremost forensic specialists in all of Saudi Arabia. So not just any old person in the security services could recruit him from mission like this..

"EMMY award winning Anthony boarding parts. Now the final episodes Sundays at nine on CNN. Good evening. We begin tonight with breaking news, new account of the disappearance of US-based Saudi journalist, one involving his killing inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul at the hands of a team organized by high ranking Saudi intelligence officer with close ties to the inner circle of the kingdom's crown prince Mohammad bin salon. One of our sources described what he or she says, may have been an accidentally lethal injection followed by what is described as an amateur cover up, which included according to another source efforts to keep the Saudi government in the dark it even as chilling and damning as that sounds the question remains is that just a cover story for something far worse and potentially more damaging on the world stage was Jamal Khashoggi murdered by a hit team. And then as a Turkish official told us today, was his body cut into pieces to be disposed of in ways as yet unknown or unrevealed. There are certainly a lot to raise. Suspicion. Remember yesterday CNN saw cleaning crew entered the consulate before Turkish investigators went in remember also the Turkish investigators. Once they got inside said, they found evidence of some kind of cleanup including painted over surfaces and toxic materials, unquote. As you know, the turfs also say they have audio and video evidence of what went down, including because Shukshis death. Also today they released passport scans of seven Saudis. They suspected of being part of an alleged fifteen members, Saudi hit team, which is reported to have included an autopsy specialist with a bone saw any or all of those things argue against this new botched abduction and amateur cover up story, whatever the truth though, and we don't know at this hour, President Trump appears to be ready to cut the Saudis. Plenty of slack ready to go all in with it speaking with the Associated Press today, the president compared the situation to allegations of sexual assault level against supreme court, Justice, brick, Cavanaugh. He said, and I'm quoting here we go again with. You know, you're guilty until proven innocent. I don't like that. We just went through that with just as cavenaugh and he was innocent all the way as far as I'm concerned, he also told the AP that his belief that rogue killers may have been responsible was informed by what he called his feeling when speaking with the Saudi monarch, and here's what he told FOX business news earlier today. Turkey's looking at it very strongly. We're all looking at it together, but Turkey and Saudi Arabia, looking at it very strongly and it depends whether or not the king or the ground prints knew about it. In my opinion, number one, what happened but whether or not they knew about it if they knew about it, that would be bad. If they knew he says, now this new account of constructions disappearance leaves open the possibility. They did not and make that what you will. But as you do remember it, Doug tales neatly toward the president. This morning signaled was a willingness to believe. And remember just yesterday the president said something very similar. I just spoke with the king of Saudi Arabia who denies any knowledge of what the plays with regard to as he said his Saudi Arabian citizen. I've asked any firmly denied that you believe children. Mike Pompeo is leaving literally within an hour or so he's heading to Saudi Arabia. We are going to leave. Nothing uncovered with that being said, the king firmly denied any knowledge of it. He didn't really know. Maybe I don't wanna get into his mind, but it sounded to me like maybe could have been Rogie killers Bruno's. Who knows? He says, row killers, keeping them on. He, he probably does now either through Turkish intelligence assets or other allies, or perhaps by way of our own capabilities, we, the public may not know. But the commander in chief likely does at this point yet even based on our own limited knowledge, the notion of rogue killers or some kind of accidental murder. It doesn't really add up. For starters, the two are contradictory rogue killers and overzealous interrogators. Now, if they were interrogators, they would be there with the kingdom's blessing on the kingdom's orders, presumably is former c. i. director. Michael Hayden told us last night with the knowledge of crown prince NBS as he's known..

"About it in my opinion. Number one. What happened, but whether or not they knew about it if they knew about it that will be bad. The Trump administration is facing increasing pressure from congress to respond aggressively Trump ally in South Carolina, Republican Lindsey Graham said he is finished working with the crown prince. This guy is a wrecking ball. He had this guy murdered in a consulate and Turkey into expect me to fill used in abused. All right. So major a couple of interesting points from this Associated Press interview. We mentioned the president said, he's not responsible. If Republicans lose the house in November. He also made this guilty until proven innocent comment talk a little bit more about that. If you could well that is the same language the president used to talk about the allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse leveled against once supreme court nominee now associate Justice Brad Kavanagh and it runs in the face of what we just heard from Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a fierce cavenaugh defender.
