The interview shocked the most liberal corners of the internet, with many questioning how and why the White House had allowed Kushner to speak, both in general and to a reporter. He declined to say whether he's spoken with the crown prince about Khashoggi's death and would not concede that he or the Saudi government was responsible.
"It's hard to do hypotheticals, but the reality is is that we were not given anything that was salacious", he said.
But he said: "I do think they should have self-determination". We are working on an investigation to get to the bottom of what happened.
