Good thing Prez Trump is working on our manufacturing base. About time someone did. Obama must've been at meeting with Farrakan or Ayres and forgot to do it or somethin'.
Sergei Leonidovich Magnitsky was a Russian tax accountant who specialized in anti-corruption activities. His arrest in 2008 and subsequent death after eleven months in police custody generated international media attention and triggered both official and unofficial inquiries into allegations of fraud, theft, and human rights violations in Russia.
The Magnitsky Act, formally known as the Russia and Moldova Jackson–Vanik Repeal and Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act of 2012, is a bipartisan bill passed by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama in December 2012, intending to punish Russian officials responsible for the death of Russian tax accountant Sergei Magnitsky in a Moscow prison in 2009.
Since 2016 the bill, which applies globally, authorizes government to sanction human rights offenders, freeze their assets, and ban them from entering the U.S

How many Blacks were killed by Blacks in Chicago today?
When last did you go to Chicago to address that situation? Or is this just a talking point you got from the rightwing echochamber and you actually don't give a damn.

It wasn't an embassy, it was a consulate. It wasn't Saudi soil, it was Turkish soil. He was a legal American resident, employed as a journalist for the Washington Post, an American media outlet, that IS covered by US Free Speech. But also, Khashoggi was protected by international human rights laws, that the Saudis violated.
Ok first he was a Saudi citizen he was in the US on a work visa.
While Embassy is the diplomatic representation of a government in another nation, Consulate is the representation of public administration. Embassies exchange messages between its government and the host government. Consulates are only responsible for its own citizens who are traveling or living in the host nation.
The consulates are also responsible for informing its citizens about all security issues. Consulates are also entrusted with the responsibility of looking after its citizens in case of detention or arrest.
Though both Embassies and Consulates represent its government in a foreign country, they have totally different responsibilities and different roles to play.

All Embassy still belong to the nation they are in it isnt foreign soil. But the host country does agree they cant enter the diplomatic grounds without permission.

Please tell me on what basis the US should be involved in this situation? A crime in the Saudi embassy in Turkey where Saudi's killed one of their own? I don't see a basis for US involvement.
