Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will be exonerated in the death of writer Jhamal Khashoggi following an official investigation into the murder, says Saudi Arabian billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal.

"Please let's give some time for the investigation to finish," Alwaleed told Maria Bartiromo on Fox News "Sunday Morning Futures"

"I ask Saudi Arabia now publicly, through your program, to have the investigation made public as soon as possible so whereby I believe the Saudi Crown Prince will be 100 percent vindicated and exonerated," he added.

Alwaleed, a member of the Saudi Arabian royal family, was imprisoned last year with dozens of other wealthy Saudis in a move by the crown prince to consolidate power and reform the country. He was released last January.

The royal family is grappling with the public outcry of the murder of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who was tortured, dismembered and killed in early October by Saudi agents at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Both Turkish and Saudi officials are investigating the killing.

Publicly, the royal family has maintained its innocence and two weeks ago blamed the killing on a "rogue operation." Khashoggi, a permanent U.S. resident who was living in Virginia, was critical of the Saudi government.

In his interview with Fox News, Prince Alwaleed denied reports that he had been tortured in custody and that officials stripped him of his wealth.
