The journalist, who had lived in the US and wrote for The Washington Post, had been critical of the Saudi regime.

The senator said he could not support Saudi Arabia's involvement in the war in Yemen or arms sales to the Saudi government as long as the crown prince remained in power.

"Only a few weeks after the ruthless killing of Jamal Khashoggi, these shocking reports of torture, sexual harassment and other forms of ill-treatment, if verified, expose further outrageous human rights violations by the Saudi authorities", Amnesty International's Middle East research director Lynn Maalouf said last month. "That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi". Still, that didn't stop Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) from defending President Donald Trump's apparent unwillingness to hold Mohammed responsible. "As to Pompeo and Mattis, I have great respect for them". "There's no way in the world those individuals came out and lied because they didn't".

Trump, however, had no unkind words for MBS in an official statement released on November 20, when the president stressed that he considered Saudi Arabia a valuable ally and that arms sales to Saudi Arabia would be great for the US economy. He's also argued its unknowable whether Khashoggi was involved.

Graham later agreed with the sentiment, tweeting, "On this, I stand with Rand!". "By extraditing all suspects to Turkey, where Jamal Khashoggi was killed and dismembered, the Saudi authorities could address those concerns", the Turkish official added.

Top officials from the administration of President Donald Trump have said they have seen no direct evidence linking the murder of the 59-year-old journalist to Mohammed, but the Central Intelligence Agency reportedly has found a link, USA media reported. "I don't think that you have to get too fancy", said Murphy. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said the chamber will have a briefing from intelligence officials next week on Khashoggi and "we'll know more after that". "They have done, I believe, some permanent damage to that standing". Corker said that most senators "in some form or fashion are going to want to speak to Saudi Arabia and where they are and send a message".

Graham went into explicit detail when confronted by reporters.
