The official described a quick and complex operation in which Mr. Khashoggi was killed within two hours of his arrival at the consulate by a team of Saudi agents, who dismembered his body with a bone saw they brought for the objective.
On Wednesday, State Department spokesman Robert Palladino said the United States "had no advance knowledge" of such a plan.
Worldwide media advocacy group Reporters Without Borders on Wednesday called for an independent global investigation into the fate of Jamal Khashoggi - the Saudi journalist who has been missing since October 2 - saying his disappearance has come amid "a particularly harsh and opaque crackdown on Saudi journalists and bloggers".
This new stance is triggering criticism from some Iran hawks and comes amid disparate statements about the administration's willingness to grant other concessions, such as preserving Iran's access to worldwide financial markets, as the Free Beacon first reported on Monday. Washington said on Friday it was considering waivers for nations that were reducing imports of Iranian oil. Corker said "everything points to them".

Tim Kaine, a Democratic Senator from the U.S. state of Virginia, said Khashoggi's disappearance is personal to him since the Saudi journalist had been living in the state.
A surveillance video image surfaced on Tuesday showing Khashoggi walking into the consulate in Istanbul's upscale 4th Levent neighborhood. "It's a very sad situation, it's a very bad situation, and we're going to get to the bottom of it". It said they checked into two hotels in Istanbul on October 2 and left later that day.

"I've never heard of an embassy in my life that doesn't tape", he said.
"I think it's going to be 45 days of extreme volatility, it could spike up, it could also go the other way", Dudley told CNBC news network. "But I don't want to rush to judgment".
Angry U.S. lawmakers likely won't cause the administration to turn away from Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Saudi Arabia may have agreed to the search in order to reassure its Western allies and the worldwide community.
