White House calls claim that Jared Kushner gave Saudi ruler permission to arrest Jamal Khashoggi before journalist was killed and dismembered ‘false nonsense’

A White House official dismissed as ‘false nonsense’ Monday a claim that Jared Kushner gave permission to Saudi ruler Mohammad bin Salman to arrest Jamal Khashoggi before he was killed and dismembered.

The claim was made in a report in Cockburn gossip column of the U.S. edition of British conservative news magazine The Spectator. 

The report also claimed that Turkish intelligence intercepted the call and President Recep Erdogan then used the information to force Donald Trump to remove his troops from northern Syria.

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.
