Turkey reportedly obtained an intercept of a questionable phone call between Jared Kushner and the Saudi crown prince.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan allegedly intercepted a phone call between White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and then used the call to blackmail President Donald Trump.

The Spectator, a British publication, reported on Sunday that a source familiar with the House impeachment inquiry say at least one whistleblower has come forward claiming that Kushner spoke with MBS regarding Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, greenlighting the journalist’s arrest.

Khashoggi would later be brutally murdered and dismembered inside the Saudi consulate in Turkey.

But the source said there is more: Turkey obtained an intercept of Kushner’s phone call and subsequently used it to persuade Trump to pull U.S. troops out of northern Syria.

Erdogan was looking to launch a long-planned offensive against American-allied Kurds in the region, and Trump effectively gave the Turkish leader his blessing by withdrawing U.S. troops last month, after speaking with him on the phone.

According to The Spectator’s source, House Intelligence Committee investigators are aware of the details and know the identities of those making the claims.

A compromised president is a dangerous one.

Jared Kushner was friends with MBR. Kushner gave the Prince names of those who opposed him . Khashoggi's name was on that list. I believe Kushner is complicit in Khashoggi's death. And no one did a darn thing.
