Turkey Turmoils: Erdogan Exposed In Trial, Leaked Docs; Seeks Arrest Of CIA Analyst Over Coup Attempt

Tyler Durden's picture

Turkish President Erdogan's week just went from bad to worse...

After yesterday's Zarrab trial confirmed Erdogan was responsible for the secret gold trade with Iran that enabled the nation to evade US sanctions...

"What I’m saying is that the prime minister at that time period Recep Tayyip Erdogan and minister of the treasury ... had given orders to start doing this trade."

The opposition party released documents today, including bank receipts, which it alleges show off-shore transactions by people in President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's inner circle.

The names mentioned on the documents include Erdogan's close relatives and inner circle. dpa cannot independently verify the documents.

 

The Turkish president, leading the country for 15 years, has staunchly rejected the claims about off-shore transactions worth millions to evade taxes.

 

His lawyer says they are lies. The president pledged to resign if the claims were proven true.

 

CHP spokesman Bulent Tezcan showed the documents at a press conference that was broadcast online, saying: "Everything is written here." He promised to hand the bank documents, which are said to show transactions in the Isle of Man, to a prosecutor.

 

On Thursday, a prosecutor's office in Ankara announced it was investigating the CHP claims.

 

However, the AKP blocked a parliamentary investigation.

 

Erdogan and his relatives launched a 1.5 million lira (380,000 dollars) lawsuit against Kemal Kilicdaroglu, the head of the main opposition People's Republican Party (CHP), over the allegations, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported.

And so, in what seems like an attempt to distract, Turkish authorities are seeking the arrest of a former top CIA analyst allegedly involved in last year’s failed coup. (as AP reports)

Anadolu Agency reported Friday that Istanbul prosecutors issued a detention warrant for Graham Fuller, a former vice chairman of the CIA’s National Intelligence Council.

 

The agency says the prosecutors suspect Fuller of being in contact with people who have been accused of participating in the coup attempt in some way.

 

Anadolu says Fuller is being sought on charges that include attempting to violate the constitutional order.

 

The Turkish government blames a Muslim cleric, Fethullah Gulen, for allegedly orchestrating the takeover attempt, an allegation Gulen denies.

 

Turkish officials think Fuller was instrumental in obtaining permanent U.S. residency for Gulen.

Interestingly, while the Lira is hovering at record lows, Turkey bond yields have plunged in the last week...

...don't stop there there's many more CIA spooks involved in the coup attempt

We'll gladly take draining the swamp any way we can get it.

++ Bonus points for Mossad

@HD:

Speaking of the Saker, not sure if you had a chance view the link I've provided on the other thread (interesting read):

Folks, if you are interested to hear CIA/Mossad agents then I invite you hear from the horse's mouth (this was an attempt to out "the Saker" and was authored by this CIA/Mossad amphisbaena; pay very close attention -- in the comment section -- to one: "Bimbo Plumpe" {notice this incessant and emotionally charged defense of Zionistic principles -- no doubt imbedded from youth to stubborn defense, against all contradictory evidence (that is how they are picked to begin with) of her "tribe"} a obvious knock on Valerie Plame):

Hmmm

"His lawyer says they are lies. The president pledged to resign if the claims were proven true."

 

Which means the allegations are obviously true

The author of the piece is pretty wack saying how Turkey has been caught via some testimony of a guy seized by Amerika and singing for his life, in violating US sanctions on Iran via gold trading. Who cares? Certainly nobody in Turkey cares.

The seized canary was on his way to Disney World. What a bufoon!!

I'm going to guess that Erdogan is untouchable by now, given his consolidation of power.
CIA is gonna have to up their game!

Other soveriegn countries are not subject to US law or the US court system.  This article is propaganda to convince you that somehow the US owns the world.

Hussein and Michael fell out of favour with their former ISIS oil smuggling/NATO lackie, bum-buddy Erdogan after the attempted overthrow. Any word on where the ISIS oil smuggling money went when the oil was refined in Israel? It went to pay ISIS terrorists. The Judahites were helping out their head-chopper scum in Wahhabi Saudi Arabia.

The same gov't that was buying ISIS petroleum.

"...the secret gold trade...".  Hmmm, the idea has merit.

Erdogan will probably have to get the Iran's Praetorian Guard to protect him. Erdogan's military purges probably make his military suspect. Erdogan could see if President Putin will send Spetsnaz to protect him.
Countries have no friends. They are patronus and cliens. If Turkey goes back to being secular and the US gets rid of the last vintages of the Clinton/Bush NWO then Turkey and US might act like BFF again.

Uh oh, Fuller is Gulens handler and got him his Visa after he was declared a terrorist abroad so he could setup a criminal ratline network based in the US. 

Is the House of Clinton about to fall?

FLynn was going to out Mueller’s protection & assistance in the Criminal FBI’s arming, funding & training of terror organizations.

Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds was gagged by the Bush Administration after 911. She’s was going to blow the whistle on the arming, funding, training, Madrasah’s etc...she was gagged for 10 years.

Know who gagged her?

Criminal Mueller from the Criminal FBI Crime Syndicate investigating the whole fake Russia narrative.

Published on Oct 24, 2017FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds exposes Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s conflict of interest in pursuing General Michael Flynn’s case due to his direct involvement as former FBI Director and his role in covering up and protecting Gulen Networks’ criminal operations within the United States, and demands that he steps down.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DvFCAIRkvWU&sns=tw

Private Military Contractors are & have been the ones assisting the CIA arming, funding & training the I CIA SIS. Remember, the CIA / Deep State have been funding the Madrasah's / Wahabism programs with Saudi Arabia in Iraq, Syria, Lybia & Central Asia etc...as well as the Gülen terror networks.

"FLynn was going to out Mueller"

Then Flynn should do it now.

All of the OWO puppets will fall.... none of them will be needed in the NWO.... Erdo the Idiot is no different, thus that stupid, lazy ass CIA coup attempt with leftover GladioB operators.... Erdo is expendable, same with Gulen, same with the House of Saud, same all over the place... as the NWO steps out of the closet.

Let him have Gulen and all his mercs.

That's not only my thought exactly but what better way to flush some of the swamp creatures than turn them over to their victims for retribution for their international terrorist meddling. "Kill them all and let God sort them out" - Pope Innocent III

That quote was actually the pope's representative in south France where they were genociding heretics and 700 took refuge in a cathedral. He was asked how they could tell the believers from the heretics and his answer was (supposedly) "Kill them all. God will know his own". 

Whether he said that or not he did proudly brag in writing to the pope that "Neither age, nor sex, nor status were spared " so the other saying is in keeping with his attitude.

The Yanks tried to kill him and depose his government. USSA sanctions are non-binding in Turkish law. This is gross prosecutorial over-reach by some fucking margin, but such is the hubris of Uncle Scam, this little fact does not matter. 

The day enough of the world makes an alternative to SWIFT and BIS. This would officially be the day, the USSA is starts to become irrelevant on the financial stage. The Petrodollar and dollar reserve status, is on borrowed time.

"The Yanks tried to kill him and depose his government. "

Not true, they had the chance and didnt do it.

This was a false coup

Or the Russians got Gulen to do it because they figured he'd buy the line of thinking that goes "Russia is too furious to aid him". Gulen wouldn't know it was the Russians. 

Hey Gulen, now's a great time to get rid of Erdo and put in someone favourable to you. Then you come back like Kohemani returned Iran in 1979. Play to Gulen's ego and you'd have him. Simple really.

I'd make a good spook  :)

Saw the excellent movie "The Mountain II" in Turkish the other day. The movie had a interesting first person take on the conflict in Syria. Filmed in top-flight HD, the scenery is remarkable.

The Turks are right on the front lines. Many Turkish soldiers are caught up in the fighting.

Americans lack first hand perspective on the ways war are fought. If they knew more about how the battles are waged--like that in Mosul this summer--they'd be shocked by the ferocity.

SPOILER ALERT

The reach and effect of Syria's disunion and de-secularization comes through in the movie. You feel the pain of the victims of the breakdown in order. Syria appears to be a land of Mad Max.

If we had that on our border we'd sure as heck go in and clean out the rat's nest, so the movie activates sympathies for the forces of good and restoration of order, which last came with the area under the Ottomans.

The movie has some scope-based photography that's pretty cool. I especially like the final scene.

The Turkish special forces are quite modern and effective. They need to be disciplined to take on the likes of jihadis.

A town is due to be raided. The citizens are Turkmen, which according to the movie are ethnic Turks who live outside Turkey.

The Mountain's point is that they must be protected. It's not hard to be sympathetic which hordes of jihadi closing in. You'd do exactly what they did in the movie--evacuate the women and children first. Then the next day instead of finding a defenseless village, they'd find you.

Of course the path of the samurai means accepting death with honor and meeting fear with calm.

Erdogan has been playing both sides of the fence, and when Russia pretty much told them how things were going to go down ([I'm sure the shootdown incident was let alone in any "deal"] Russia was going to halt all the US-based nonsense in Syria) he pretty much fell on That (Russian) side of the fence.  As is typical, the CIA has "photos" on everyone.  With the increased pressures from the ZIonists to regroup after their failed attempt to remove Assad the focus then became Erdogan.  And how handy it is that now they can link Erdogen to being a "Putin Puppet."  This is how the story goes down.  An added element will be the offshoring of monies (which will be likened to how Putin is said to be doing [of course, this is all ZIonist propaganda]).  Turkey must bend to the Zionists' plan.  The big question is whether Russia cares enough about Turkey to keep it from being flipped (back? - the trend was looking like Turkey was not longed to continue being in the NATO/EU alliance):  I figure that Turkey can be lost, but not Sydia and Lebanon, either of which would make it difficult to stop the march on to Iran (THE target).

And meanwhile Trump, the "useful idiot," will continue to show his impotence in dealing with any of this.  So much for his campaign rhetoric of stopping stupid US wars abroad.  Comes back to the CIA and their "photos."
