MORE raised concerns among administration officials by communicating with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on private channels, including through the messaging service WhatsApp, CNN reported Wednesday.

Once concerns were raised about Kushner's close ties to bin Salman, Kushner reportedly told others within Trump's team about his conversations with the crown prince, according to CNN.

Reports have indicated that Kushner and bin Salman have developed a close relationship.

The president's son-in-law and senior adviser met with the crown prince most recently in June to discuss the Trump administration's Middle East peace plan.

Kushner spoke with bin Salman last week over the phone to ask for more information about Khashoggi's disappearance.

Turkish officials have said they believe Khashoggi was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on orders from Saudi leadership.

The president again denied that he is providing cover to Saudi Arabia in connection with the Khashoggi case. »
