Turkish foreign minister says wants US envoy McGurk changed

The letter to Erdogan comes one day after Rep. Ed Royce (D-California) wrote a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions urging them to investigate the violence and determine whether criminal charges are warranted against any of the bodyguards. He then "exited the vehicle and looked directly toward the melee feet away".
Just days after a brutal fight outside the Turkish embassy in Washington, DC, that left at least a dozen people injured, video footage has surfaced showing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan calmly watching the violence near his auto.
John McCain (R-Ariz.) called for the expulsion of Turkey's ambassador to the United States.
Top congressional Republicans are demanding the Trump administration take swift and severe action against the Turkish government in response to violence involving members of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's security detail, with one saying the U.S.
Police barricaded the perimeter to separate the groups. Video shows men wearing dark suits and others hitting and kicking protesters.
The minister said Trump's new USA administration seems more understanding about Turkey's security concerns.
Swedish prosecutor drops rape investigation of Assange
American authorities have prepared charges to seek Arrange's arrest, CNN reported, citing US officials familiar with the matter. Friday was the deadline for the Swedish prosecution to send a request to Stockholm District Court in the Assange case.
"This kind of thing cannot go un-responded to diplomatically", said McCain, suggesting that the USA sue the Turkish government if the bodyguards responsible for the violence can't be identified.
Supporters of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, including his government security forces and several armed individuals, violently charged a group of protesters outside the Turkish ambassador's residence here on Tuesday night in what the police characterized as "a brutal attack". In all, nine people were hurt. Video shows Erdogan supporters and bodyguards flooding through the police line and beating protesters on American soil. He later exits the vehicle and peers toward the chaos.
The Turkish Embassy in Washington released a statement Wednesday that made no mention of any role played by the presidential guards but said that a group of Turkish American citizens who had gathered to greet Erdogan "responded in self-defense" to a "provocative demonstration". "It would be beneficial for this person to change", Cavusoglu said, referring to McGurk, adding that Turkey "would not meddle in the domestic issues of another country".
In its protest against Trump's decision, Turkey's foreign minister demanded Thursday that Trump dismiss the US envoy in charge of the anti-IS coalition, Brett McGurk.
"We weren't doing anything wrong", said pro-Erdogan demonstrator Mustafa Dikilitas. "We are already telling you in advance, our rules of engagement give us this authority, we will take such a step and we won't discuss it or consult with anyone".
The PKK is considered a terror group by the US and Turkey's Western allies.
