According to U.S. Intelligence officials President Trump was briefed in February about the potential involvement of Russia into putting bounties on American soldiers to the Taliban in order to drive the United States out of the area.
From The New York Times:
American officials provided a written briefing in late February to President Trump laying out their conclusion that a Russian military intelligence unit offered and paid bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. and coalition troops in Afghanistan, two officials familiar with the matter said.
The investigation into the suspected Russian covert operation to incentivize such killings has focused in part on an April 2019 car bombing that killed three Marines as one such potential attack, according to multiple officials familiar with the matter.
The new information emerged as the White House tried on Monday to play down the intelligence assessment that Russia sought to encourage and reward killings — including reiterating a claim that Mr. Trump was never briefed about the matter and portraying the conclusion as disputed and dubious.
But that stance clashed with the disclosure by two officials that the intelligence was included months ago in Mr. Trump’s President’s Daily Brief document — a compilation of the government’s latest secrets and best insights about foreign policy and national security that is prepared for him to read. One of the officials said the item appeared in Mr. Trump’s brief in late February; the other cited Feb. 27, specifically.
The constant lying by this President is beyond treason. No, it is not fake news and the constant bantering of that phrase doesn’t hide the fact that he has been exposed for a gross violation of his office and instead spouts off conspiracy theories and lies to the American public.
This is actually an impeachable offense.
