Aurora, CO — Today, U.S. Representative Mike Coffman (R-CO) released this statement following the admission by Saudi Arabia that Journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed in inside their consulate in Istanbul, Turkey:

“As a sitting Member of the House Armed Services Committee, and a Marine Corps Combat Veteran, our country must stand up for our values and demand our ‘allies’ respect human rights—I did not fight to have us look the other way. The United States and the rest of the international community must condemn the murder of Mr. Khashoggi and the use of diplomatic posts as torture chambers for rogue nations. I am calling on President Trump to immediately recall the (Acting) U.S. Ambassador to the Kingdom pending further consultation with Congress.”
