The White House is now under heavy fire. Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany shot down a troubling report last Friday. That President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were briefed on disturbing American intelligence findings. Which reportedly indicated that Russian military operatives offered bounties to Taliban-tied militants for killing U.S. coalition forces in Afghanistan.
“The United States receives thousands of intelligence reports a day and they are subject to strict scrutiny. While the White House does not routinely comment on alleged intelligence or internal deliberations, the CIA Director, National Security Advisor, and the Chief of Staff can all confirm that neither the President nor the Vice President were briefed on the alleged Russian bounty intelligence,” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany announced in a statement. “This does not speak to the merit of the alleged intelligence but to the inaccuracy of the New York Times story erroneously suggesting that President Trump was briefed on this matter.”
During a town hall Saturday, former Vice President Joe Biden brought up the “shocking revelation” Trump reportedly knew of such bounties for months and slammed him for doing “worse than nothing.”
…Nobody’s been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration. With Corrupt Joe Biden & Obama, Russia had a field day, taking over important parts of Ukraine – Where’s Hunter? Probably just another phony Times hit job, just like their failed Russia Hoax. Who is their “source”?
