Speaking to the Russian state-run news agency Tass, about the possible extradition of Gulen to Turkey over the murder of Russian diplomat Andrei Karlov, Justice Department spokesperson Nicole Navas Oxman said that “We (the U.S.) will review any materials the Turkish government may provide in this regard and will make any decisions about extradition on the basis or the facts and relevant U.S. laws.”
