Trump has called Khashoggi's disappearance and death "one of the worst cover-ups in the history of cover-ups", but has also said the US should not be too critical of the regime because of a pending multi-billion dollar arms deal with Riyadh. "Let's not let money taint our conscience and compromise our values".
Western intelligence analysts and Turkish officials have maintained that the operation could not have been carried out without the consent of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto leader of Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia's attorney general admitted Thursday that evidence shared by Turkish officials suggests that Khashoggi's killing was "premeditated".

Turkey has stopped short of blaming Saudi Arabia, but hinted that the murder could not have taken place without orders from someone in a senior position.
In her strongest public comments yet on the subject, she said worldwide experts should have complete access to evidence and witnesses.
USA officials, including President Donald Trump, have said the country will face consequences over the killing of Khashoggi. Meanwhile, Saudi's Crown Prince has maintained that perpetrators responsible for the killing of Jamal Khashoggi will be brought to justice once the investigation is complete.
