Is this a CT? I don't know the source so I'm posting in the Lounge...

Report: Turkey Allegedly Used Blackmail To Coerce Trumpís Abandonment Of Kurds

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 journalistís arrest.

But the source said there is more: Turkey obtained an intercept of Kushnerís 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.


On FB, so we all know it must be true...

1. If only.

Imagine how easy it would be to take down four turkeys before Thanksgiving.

Edrogan, MBS, Kushner and Trump.

2. Not familiar with the source, but it is believable...

The whole Trump clan is up to their eyeballs in illegal crap.

6. Who knows? Sounds plausible but a well-constructed ct

would seem plausible. Some ct's are obviously nonsense, but some seem to be credible enough to convince people. Depends on how well they appeal to a person's own perspectives.

As a general rule I would not accept or quote something that has not been verified.

8. Turkey is already a conflict/possible blackmailer

Michael Flynn was working to undermine the Kurds. His company was using a media/psyop campaign in the US and abroad to try to get a Turkish political opponent extradited back to Turkey.

Erdogan has the dirt on trump. Going back to 2012? I think was the trump tower deal.

I dont see any reliable source reporting the Kushner story as fact. It could be a distraction so trump can say "look at the fake news! Try to make it seem like he himself must be innocent because....proof fake news!



Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz, and the other three gop senators that met with Erdogan have to be deep in whatever is/has happened.
