However US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker said he had "zero question in my mind" that Prince Mohammed directed the killing after an hour-long briefing to a small group of senators by Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel.
"We also call for global investigation", she said. Graham said that may be true, but there is certainly a "smoking bonesaw", alluding to the murder weapon suspected to have killed Khashoggi. Graham asserts pretty blatantly that Trump himself is tied up in the killing to some extent.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has pushed to keep worldwide attention on the murder - the order for which he says came from the highest levels of the Saudi government - even as U.S. President Donald Trump has said Washington should not take action that would undermine its relationship with the kingdom.
"There's a smoking saw", Graham said, referring to reports from the Turkish government that said Saudi agents used a bone saw to dismember Khashoggi after he was killed in the Istanbul consulate, where he had gone to obtain paperwork enabling him to marry his fiancee.

He said finding a compromise will be hard because some lawmakers don't want to tie Yemen to the Khashoggi killing.
Corker is confident that the crown prince is culpable in the murder. "Maybe he did and maybe he didn't!"
The United States now provides arms shipments and logistical support including intelligence and targeting assistance to the Saudi-led coalition, which includes the United Arab Emirates and other Arab countries.
Saudi officials have denied any involvement in the death of the journalist.
"If our government knows that Saudi leaders were involved in the murder of a U.S. resident, why shouldn't the public know this?"
