Within days of the mysterious disappearance Turkish officials had made anonymous leaks to the media about the killing of the journalist, a harsh critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
The call from Mohammed bin Salman took place before Saudi Arabia acknowledged that the writer was murdered and urged Kushner, President's Trump's son-in-law and a White House adviser, and Bolton to maintain the alliance between the United States and Saudi Arabia, the Washington Post reported.
The Kingdom initially said Khashoggi walked out of the consulate unharmed but then said Saudi agents had accidentally killed him in a fistfight, and more recently announced that it had evidence that his killing was "premeditated".
The affair has created Saudi Arabia's worst diplomatic crisis since 9/11 and sullied the reputation of the crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, whom it is alleged must have been aware of the murder plan.
The phone call is reported to have taken place on 9 October, a week after Khashoggi disappeared.

Aktay was first government official that Hatice Cengiz, Khashoggi's fiancee, called when he didn't emerge from the consulate.
Mr Pompeo said the United States had "deep and long-term strategic relationships" with Saudi Arabia and said "we intend to make sure that those relationships remain intact".
