Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pushed back against bipartisan chorus of critics on Capitol Hill who have accused the Trump administration of protecting Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for his alleged role in the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

"America is not covering up for a murder," Pompeo told reporters in Budapest, Hungary on Monday.

That charge, from lawmakers like Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., came after the Trump administration missed the deadline for an investigation that Congress triggered in October into the crown prince's role. Kaine, who represents Virginia, where Khashoggi was living when he was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, said the administration was "aiding in the cover up of a murder."

"Sen. Kaine's just dead wrong," Pompeo said. "He's just -- he's flat-out wrong. I like Sen. Kaine, I have a lot of respect for Sen Kaine. Sen. Kaine's just dead wrong."
