In other news, Russia is already saying they'll be forced to "respond in kind" if Trump withdraws from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). A new arms race may be around the corner.

Meanwhile, nearly 700,000 people marched through London on Saturday to demand a second referendum on Britain's exit from the European Union or "Brexit."

Finally, Turkish sources have revealed to CNN that a Saudi agent seemingly tried to impersonate Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi after he was killed inside the Saudi consulate. An agent left the consulate in Khashoggi's clothes afterward.

CNN has obtained exclusive law enforcement surveillance footage, part of the Turkish government's investigation, that appears to show the man leaving the Saudi consulate by the back door, wearing Khashoggi's clothes, a fake beard, and glasses.

The same man was seen in Khashoggi's clothing, according to the Turkish case, at the city's world-famous Blue Mosque just hours after the journalist was last seen alive entering the consulate on October 2.

The man in the video, identified by the official as Mustafa al-Madani, was allegedly part of what investigators have said was a hit squad, sent to kill the journalist during a scheduled appointment to get papers for his upcoming wedding.

Remember when the Saudis originally said Khashoggi left the consulate alive? That was their guy pretending to be him.

There are some other reports floating around that Turkish authorities have a recording of a call between the consulate and the home office in Saudi Arabia that took place when Khashoggi was killed. I think we're going to learn a lot more tomorrow.
