Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said it's looking more and more likely that Saudi Arabia killed a journalist who has been missing since last week.

Corker spoke with reporters on Capitol Hill Thursday and noted that "everything indicates" Jamal Khashoggi was murdered.

"If it's found that they, as everything indicates today ... murdered a journalist, that will hugely change our relationship. I mean, there's no question about it," Corker said, The Hill reported.

"Everything points to the fact that ... this was something that was thought out and done and that's he's not alive anymore."

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and Saudi journalist who has been critical of the Saudi government, has been missing since he entered the Saudi embassy in Turkey on Oct. 2. It's been alleged that a Saudi hit team ambushed him in the embassy, killed him, and dismembered his body because of his criticisms of his government.

On Wednesday, Corker and nearly every member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee asked President Donald Trump to investigate Khashoggi's disappearance and consider placing sanctions on Saudi Arabia if it is found to have killed him.

Corker said he believes Khashoggi is dead.

"I think they did it and I think unfortunately he's deceased," Corker said, according to The Hill.
