Evidence from inside the cabinet consulates just behind you will get you closer in the second but yesterday we side team Turkish investigators. And patty investigators go in the Turkish officials are the one leaking. Betty and I and this is only been running into for the last few weeks these are all anonymous sources no one is going on record thanks.

Remembered and they also said they had audio and video that proves the ninth but again no one's going on the record airline president airline is not going on the record and we have not heard or seen it. Any evidence. Yet definitely very secretive so far it's anonymous first time the AP that they have found evidence that. That he was killed inside the consulate.
