Senators Urge Turkish President To Hold His Bodyguards Accountable For DC Violence

Using noise reduction and volume enhancement techniques, Ferad determined that Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan's security detail shouted out the phrases "he says attack" and "come, come, come" as they charged the protesters.

"We should throw their ambassador the hell out of the United States of America", McCain said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

News reported on Wednesday that the men who attacked the protesters were bodyguards of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

"McGurk is definitely giving clear support to the PKK and YPG", Cavusoglu was quoted as saying. "It would be beneficial for this person to change", he said, accusing the diplomat of pursuing policies of the Obama administration, according to broadcaster NTV.

Still, the State Department said it was expressing "concern" to Turkey over the incident "in the strongest possible terms".

"It is absolutely unacceptable to take the YPG-PYD into consideration as partners in the region, and it's going against a global agreement we reached", Erdogan said in Washington, referring to the Kurdish Democratic Union Party, whose armed wing is the YPG. Washington voiced concern over the air strikes and said they harmed the coalition's fight against Islamic State.

Footages of a brawl between a small group of protesters believed to be pro-Kurdish and some men dressed in black suits, identified as Erdogan's security agents, went viral on social media.

McCain and Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the senior Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, also sent a letter to Erdogan stating that the "actions of your staff violate the constitutional protections of freedom of the press and freedom of assembly enjoyed by all Americans".

Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC said he wants "people prosecuted".

The Trump administration is facing growing calls for a forceful response to violence on American soil by Turkish presidential guards who were briefly detained this week but then set free.

Erdogan was in Washington, DC to meet with President Donald Trump, who praised him as a loyal ally in the battle against Islamic extremism.

Eleven people, including a U.S. officer were hurt in the brawl.

The video, recorded by Voice of America's Turkish service, showed security forces brutally kicking and punching protesters before Erdogan emerges from a black Mercedes in the driveway to watch the incident.

Erdogan made the comments Thursday while addressing Turkish businessmen in Istanbul after returning to Turkey from a Tuesday visit to the White House. "As I have previously done so, I have been frankly communicating our expectations with regard to the Fethullahist Terrorist Organization, which we have notified our friends of their involvement in the failed coup of July the 15th in Turkey", the White House translates Erdogan's statement as reading. He warned that senior US diplomat Brett McGurk, in the anti-IS coalition, should not "poison" the administration by backing Kurdish groups.
