Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner said Monday morning that the Trump administration has yet to come to a final decision about how it will respond to Saudi Arabia after the disappearance and murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

"Right now as an administration we're more in the fact-finding phase," Kushner told CNN Monday morning. "Then we'll determine which facts are credible."

Kushner said once the administration has all of the relevant facts, the president and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will "determine what's credible."

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist, was last seen the afternoon of Oct. 2 entering the Saudi mission. Turkish investigators believe he was murdered inside the embassy, where he was to fill out paperwork for his wedding, and previously told U.S. officials they have audio and video evidence to prove it. The Turkish officials claim Khashoggi was dismembered at the consulate.

Saudi Arabia's government has denied involvement in Khashoggi's disappearance, despite early reports from the Turkish government that the crown prince of Saudi Arabia ordered a hit on the journalist.

The U.S., Turkey, and Saudi Arabia are conducting independent investigations into what happened at the Saudi mission in Turkey on Oct. 2.

Pressed as to why the U.S. should trust the Saudis to conduct an thorough investigation into themselves, Kushner said that the administration is getting "facts from multiple places."

The Saudis' story has changed multiple times since Khashoggi disappeared, first arguing he left the building shortly after entering. Saudi officials then claimed Friday that Khashoggi died as a result of a fist fight. Friday's statement from the Saudi's was the nation's first admission that Khashoggi died within the Saudi consulate in Turkey.

President Trump offered his most direct criticism of the Saudis on Sunday, telling reporters that "obviously there has been deception, and there's been lies." Trump previously floated the idea that Khashoggi was murdered by "rogue actors," which Saudi Arabia's foreign ministry began parroting Sunday.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman claims his government has "nothing to hide" in relation to Khashoggi's disappearance. Kushner, who has met with Crown Prince Mohammed on a number of occasions, said Monday that he told the crown prince "to be fully transparent," because "the world is watching."

Pompeo traveled to Riyadh early last week to meet with Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and the crown prince.

The secretary said that the king and crown prince "assured me that they will conduct a complete, thorough investigation of all of the facts surrounding Mr. Khashoggi and that they'll do it in a timely fashion."
