  • Nikki Haley: We can't give Saudi Arabia a pass on Khashoggi

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused members of Saudi Arabia's government of ordering the killing of Saudi insider-turned-critic Khashoggi, coming close to directly implicating the kingdom's de facto leader Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. US President Donald Trump has refused to sever ties with "key allies" Saudi Arabia over the journalist's death, despite a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) report that concluded MBS to be behind Khashoggi's death.

Sources told the Times that Kushner was one of the crown prince's staunchest defenders in the administration, amidst increasing calls for the U.S.to take punitive action against the Saudis for the murder.

The strategy has reportedly come in handy as the young royal came under heightened global scrutiny due to allegations that he ordered Khashoggi's killing.

But American officials and a Saudi briefed on their conversations said that Mr. Kushner and Prince Mohammed have continued to chat informally. Kushner has been a staunch supporter of the royal in spite of mounting domestic and worldwide criticism.

Khashoggi vanished after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. He never left. As Turkish investigators uncovered mounting evidence that the self-exiled writer and frequent government critic was actually slain within the building and worldwide speculation grew, Saudi Arabia ultimately admitted that its agents had killed him, but maintained that the order was a rogue operation not approved by Prince Mohammed.

Hollywood actor and activist Sean Penn is filming a documentary on the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to Turkish media, as sustained outrage over the killing threatens USA ties with its chief Gulf ally.
