Jamal Khashoggi's final words were "I can't breathe" according to CNN

Turkish officials believe the calls were made to senior figures in Riyadh.

"Jared has always meticulously followed protocols and guidelines regarding the relationship with MBS and all of the other foreign officials with whom he interacts", the White House said in a statement to the Times.

According to CNN, Saudi officials do not deny the calls were made to Riyadh but instead deny calls were made at all in the tape.

Although Khashoggi was killed by Saudi rogue operatives, according to Riyadh, Kushner and the Saudi crown prince continued to communicate with each other, according to two former senior United States officials and two people briefed by the Saudi officials.

Trump 'Likely To Be Indicted' On Campaign Finance Violations
That isn't clear, and it's important to note that federal prosecutors haven't accused Mr Trump of violating the law. Still, he said, "The new Congress will not try to shield the president" as he said Republicans have.

Initially refraining from attacking Prince Mohammed, Washington announced sanctions on 17 Saudis allegedly involved, including two top aides of the prince.

Kushner's support for Prince Mohammed in the moment of crisis is a striking demonstration of a singular bond that has helped draw President Trump into an embrace of Saudi Arabia as one of his most important global allies. The prince and his advisers, eager to enlist American support for his hawkish policies in the region and for his own consolidation of power, cultivated the relationship with Kushner for more than two years, according to documents, emails and text messages reviewed by NYT. "There was even a slide quoted in that report, the Saudi report, that they were saying that Jared Kushner revealed his lack of familiarity with U.S. -Saudi relations". The Saudis were trying to position themselves as key allies who could help the Trump administration with its campaign pledges while enlisting USA support for its own policies.

Boot thinks the Saudis did it hoping they'd score a "blank check" from Trump and the U.S. In return, they promised to broker a peace agreement between the Palestinians and Saudis. The Saudis had extended that invitation during the delegation's November 2016 visit.

That Jared Kushner has close ties to Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman isn't a bombshell revelation.

Boston Red Sox rumors: Nathan Eovaldi talks heating up
He threw 54 really good innings for Boston with an ERA of just 3.33 in the regular season. We all are! Price may have another reason to be celebrating Eovaldi's return though.

Turkish officials obtained a recording of the incident but have not said how.

Cengiz said she had rejected an invitation from Trump to visit the White House last October, and that the invitation was not renewed. The CIA has concluded that the prince, often known by the initials MBS, played a role in the killing. But, according to the Post and The New York Times, the Central Intelligence Agency is certain that it was Prince Mohammed himself.

The White House did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment on the story. Their connection, though, has been pivotal since the start of the Trump administration.
