LATEST: Turkish sources reveal details of how @JKhashoggi was murdered. #JamalKjashoggi was beaten as soon as he entered the consulate. He was not interrogated. After being beaten he was killed by lethal injection. This happened in the consul generals office & in front of him!
They have told #Aljazeera that #JamalKhashoggi’s body was then dismembered by the head autopsy doctor at the #Saudi defense forces Salah Altubaiqi who flew in earlier that day! This happened also inside the @KSAconsulateTR

BOMBSHELL in #Khashoggi reporting
WSJ has DETAILED info on the tapes (location off killing, doctor telling others to listen to music, no interrogation).
• Saudis would now know if Turkey knows exactly what happened
• No interrogation taking place would mean straight murder 1/
Wall Street Journal report says tape indicates Khashoggi "killed in the office of the Saudi consul general"
That makes it even more suspicious that Consul General has left Turkey for Riyadh.
Didn't want to stick around for interview with investigators? 2/

Fun fact: the deficit would be shockingly close to zero today with Clinton-era tax levels.
Back when we had a surplus in 2000, federal revenues were ~20% of GDP.
In 2018, feds spent ~20.3% of GDP
Deficit would have been ~0.3% GDP w/Clinton-2000-era tax $
=*<$100 billion deficit.*
After a succession of tax cuts, revenue has dropped to 16.5% GDP.
Deficit? $779 billion.

1/Had a wonderful discussion with some amazing consumer investors last week.
Premise was small brands are gaining mkt share in almost every single CPG category. I’ve never met anyone in consumer that debates that. So just for fun we played off that premise.
2/ Hypo 1: I think the Personalization of the Consumer (consumers wanting brands/products that meet their unique needs) will continue resulting in further fragmentation. CPG has never had a Power Law, and the “winners” will own even less of the market going forward.

BREAKING: @TWITTER just published the full dataset of tweets from the Russian and Iranian troll farms.
9 million Russian tweets. 1 million Iranian tweets. #motherlode
They gave @DFRLab a look ahead of time.
Thread on the findings to follow.
Main takeaways. The troll operations:
- were about the home government first
- had multiple goals
- targeted specific activist communities
- not always high-impact
