Last week, Turkey accepted a Saudi proposal to form a joint working group to investigate Mr Khashoggi's disappearance.
The unexplained disappearance from the Saudi embassy in Istanbul of prominent Saudi journalist and dissident Jamal Khashoggi remained in the headlines as Saudi King Salman ordered an internal probe into the case.
Mr Khashoggi - a Washington Post contributor - had written columns critical of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom's war in Yemen and its crackdown on activists and businessmen.
In the meantime, Lieberman said it's important for the U.S.to maintain its relationship with Saudi Arabia because the king is "the best hope we've had for modernizing Saudi Arabia in a long time".
"The king firmly denied any knowledge of it", Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a trip to survey hurricane damage in Florida and in Georgia.
SAUDI KING THANKS PRESIDENT ERDOĞANA delegation of Saudi officials sent to Turkey to join their Turkish counterparts to find out what happened to Khashoggi spent hours at Istanbul Police Department Headquarters on Vatan Boulevard. Turkish officials say they believe Saudi agents killed and dismembered Khashoggi and say Turkey has audio and video recordings of it.
The case has provoked an worldwide outcry against Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter, with more media and business executives pulling out of a planned investment conference there this month.
Pelosi then questioned whether Trump put personal profit ahead of country in the case of Khashoggi - whom the Saudis are reportedly about to admit was killed in a botched interrogation. The situation in Saudi Arabia is unbearable, not even for the ones who are just minding their own business.
However, he told CBS News on Saturday that the United States was investigating the case which he called "really awful and disgusting" and that "there will be severe punishment".
The crown prince, also known as MBS, has aggressively pitched the kingdom as a destination for foreign investment. His disappearance has led to strong global condemnation of Saudi Arabia, and that condemnation is now starting to trickle over into the business world. Ford Motor Executive Chairman Bill Ford won't attend because of a scheduling conflict, a spokeswoman said.
Foreign minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa tweeted two hashtags calling for a boycott of Uber in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, as well as a broader hashtag urging followers to "boycott anyone who boycotts Saudi Arabia".
"One would hope they are very cognisant of what has happened and they consider the events that have taken place [in Ankara] in their deliberations on any future exports", he told Guardian Australia.
