“President Trump and this administration sanctioned 17 people that we came to learn were connected to the heinous murder of Jamal Khashoggi. All across the United States government we continue to investigate, to try and learn, to make determinations about what happened, and we’ll continue to hold those responsible accountable. We’ve been very clear about that since literally the very beginning.
We are doing everything we can to make sure that we get it right for America, that we keep the strategic relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and protect the American people. Those two things can both be done and we’ve done it very effectively.” Secretary Pompeo, Interview with Wolf Blitzer, CNN, Buenos Aires, December 1, 2018 link(en): https://www.state.gov/secretary/remarks/2018/12/287721.htm
