Officials told the Post that the arrangements are part of an effort by the Saudi government to reach a long-term agreement with the Khashoggi family and to ensure they temper their public statements about Khashoggi's death.
As Khashoggi's murder dominated the news cycle months ago, Smith criticized the USA relationship with Saudi Arabia and he revisited the issue this afternoon. The others, who live in the United States, plan to sell the Jeddah homes they were given, the insiders say.
Khashoggi's two sons and two daughters were all given houses in the coastal of Jeddah worth around $4 million (£3 million) each and are receiving monthly payments of $10,000 or more.
The kingdom initially said it had no knowledge of Khashoggi's fate but amid mounting worldwide pressure acknowledged that he was killed at the Saudi consulate in a rogue operation.
Khashoggi's two sons and two daughters have largely stayed silent since his death and avoided attacks on Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is accused of ordering the killing.

US President Donald Trump has remained neutral on the issue, saying, "Maybe he did, maybe he didn't". He was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October 2018. "If being a writer was ingrained in his identity, being a Saudi was part of that same grain". But there's certainly a split with the White House and the intelligence services.
The Saudi government would contend that these payments are meant to make amends, but the expectation is that in exchange for the money, they won't publicly criticize the royal family over Khashoggi's death, the source said. The crown prince is the king's son and has had great power in the kingdom since 2017. Khashoggi's children could have to absolve the killers to collect the money.
