Missing Journalist Latest: Pompeo to Meet with Pres. Trump After High Stake Meetings in Middle East

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will meet with President Trump at the White House Thursday after a series of high stakes meetings in the Middle East.

Pompeo met with leaders in Saudi Arabia and Turkey earlier this week at the president’s request.

The goal was to find out what happened to Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi.

Khashoggi disappeared more than two week’s ago after going into Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

Turkish officials say they have proof the journalist, known to be a critic of the Saudi royal family, was killed by a Saudi hit squad.

Wednesday night the Washington Post published what could be Khashoggi’s last article.

They say they received it one day after he disappeared.

In one line it reads, “Arab governments have been given free rein to continue silencing the media at an increasing rate.”

The Saudi government still denies any involvement in Khashoggi’s disappearance.
