This comes on the heels of the mystery surrounding the American journalist who disappeared in Istanbul, Turkey:
A missing Washington Post journalist was last seen over a week ago walking into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. Information is now coming out that the journalist was murdered inside the consulate within two hours of arriving.
The Director of Gulf Institute dropped a bombshell during an interview with Charles Payne saying that Jamal Khashoggi was able to turn on his Apple watch audio to record his own murder and the time and location. President Trump wants to get to the bottom of this even if it implicates the Saudi Royal Family whom he has a good relationship with. What we know now is that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was assassinated and dismembered by a squad of 15 Saudis and that the Saudi Crown Prince ordered the hit because the journalist had been a critic of the Saudis.
He had applied for his American citizenship and was going to the consulate to get papers for marriage. His fiance waited for him on the outside of the consulate but he never came out.
Now we know why.
