Jared Kushner gave permission to Saudi ruler Mohammad bin Salman to arrest Jamal Khashoggi before he was killed and dismembered, a whistleblower claims. However, Turkish intelligence intercepted the call and President Recep Erdogan then used the information to force President Trump to remove his troops from northern Syria, according to the Spectator. The report claims that investigators on the Democratic-led House Intelligence Committee are aware of these allegations and are planning to dig further into them while pursuing the impeachment inquiry over Trump's dealings with Ukraine.

It'll be interesting to see how this story unfolds.

As noted in the summary, the House has already heard these whistleblower allegations and will be looking into them. If true, Trump was blackmailed by Erdogan to remove troops and leave Kurdish allies to Syria, Turkey, and Russia to do with as they will.

Lock Jared up, Lock him up.
He's an accessory to a murder.

Liberal fevered fantasy due to severe cases of TDS. This sounds like a Maddow level of conspiracy nonsense. Do any of you believe for a single second that if Erdogan blackmailed Trump that the Deep State would not be leaking it like crazy? This one is stupid even for the Democrat clown car.

Beware, Iragoldberg is in total panic mode. Be very careful when dealing with an unhappy lunatic. Ira is very unhappy today. He may be dangerous.

#6 - perfect response to Ira.

Kushner's in bed with the Saudi's and in particular with MBS. This was speculated at the time it happened. I don't doubt this one bit.

1. They would have to know

2. You don't get to call something conspiracy nonsense then trot out deep state conspiracy nonsense

IraLieburg = Sheeple. He is posting from a troll farm in St Petersburg, Russia.
If he goes postal in his workplace in mother Russia, then so be it.

I don't understand why you people even bother responding to this doofus.

I'm not seeing how this would be blackmail worthy...Kushner has no position of authority. SA seeking his 'permission' to arrest a Saudi citizen on Saudi soil is ludicrous. Even if he did give his permission...so what? Unless there's some evidence that he knew of the outcome planned for Kashoggi, then agreeing that SA can arrest a SA citizen on SA soil isn't anything.

Wow! I now know who I would not trust that posts here. Avigdore defends the right of Prince Bone Saw to murder any Saudi if he can just lure him into the Saudi embassy even if it is in Turkey. The right wing douche bags of America have gone so far off the rails that it is doubtful they will ever make it back onto the rails. When you can, somehow, be ok with that brutal murder realize you have lost your perspective about right and wrong and can no longer be considered as a sane poster. Avigdore is completely insane, is this the long term affect of Trumpism. Frightening thought when you consider how many of these zombies there actually are.
