A new report from conservative British newspaper the Spectator claims that an American whistleblower told them that Turkish President Erdogan blackmailed President Trump into leaving Syria.
According to the the same report President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner personally greenlighted the assassination of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
The Spectator goes on to say that Turkish special intelligence intercepted and recorded the phone call between Bin Salman and Kushner.
The paper claims that House Democrats on the Intelligence Committee have already been made aware of these new accusations and are currently investigating them.
As a final reveal from the British newspaper, their source claims that there are actually 7 whistleblowers currently speaking to House Democrats right now, including the source of the article themself.
Notice: It is important to note that all of these assertions are from an anonymous alleged whistleblower speaking to a British newspaper and have in no way been confirmed.
Jared Kushner has been frequently criticized for his cosy relationship with Saudi Crown Prince bin Salman. Salman was reportedly the one who ordered the execution and dismemberment of Washington Post reporter Khashoggi when he entered a Saudi embassy to apply for a marriage certificate. Khashoggi was extremely close to the Saudi royal family at one point before fleeing the country.
Despite the evidence pointing to bin Salman as the organizer, the Trump administration has defended the Saudi Crown Prince against the claims.
The Trump administration has also been criticized for posting on Twitter that they were waiting for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to tell them how to respond to Iranian drone strikes on Saudi oil fields.
Last month, President Trump pulled all American troops out of Northern Syria after a late-night phone call with President Erdogan of Turkey. The Turkish President allegedly told Trump he would invade the region with his army regardless of whether the Americans stayed. This was the point when Trump was alleged to have been blackmailed by Erdogan.
Since then, Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed treaties with both Syria and Turkey to clear the Kurds out of the region and create a 19-mile buffer zone between the two countries.
