The killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in October of last year in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul has caused reverberations in the international community that countries are not doing enough to isolate Saudi Arabia and its Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), who are likely connected to the killing.

Now, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA.) and other lawmakers have revealed Tuesday that the United States has made at least two deals with Saudi Arabia to transfer nuclear technology to the conservative Kingdom since the killing, after reading documents related to the agreements, Politico reported. 

"The alarming realization that the Trump administration signed off on sharing our nuclear know-how with the Saudi regime after it brutally murdered an American resident adds to a disturbing pattern of behavior," Sen. Kaine said. 

Kaine and other lawmakers reviewed documents pertaining to Part 810 authorizations, which allow the United States to export nuclear material to help foreign countries or assist them with developing nuclear technology, ABC News reported.  One of the Part 810 authorizations with Saudi Arabia was done just 14 days after the killing. 

The Trump administration has been criticized for not doing enough against the Saudis due to the murder. There have been allegations that Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, is trying to stem negative actions towards MBS, who he shares a close personal relationship with. 

Jamal Khashoggi was a columnist for the Washington Post who had often criticized Saudi leadership under its Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Khashoggi had entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2, 2018 in order to sort out legalities regarding his previous marriage in order to marry his Turkish fiancée, Hatice Cengiz.  

Last month, Cengiz testified before the U.S. Congress asking the American government to do more against the Saudi government regarding Khashoggi's murder. She told CNN last month that she would like to meet U.S. President Donald Trump to discuss her deceased fiancé.
