Trump faces bipartisan calls for answers on Russian-offered bounties
By Rebecca Kheel and Olivia Beavers - 06/29/20 05:33 PM EDT

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding answers after a flurry of reports revealed the intelligence community concluded months ago that Russia offered bounties to incentivize Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. and coalition troops in Afghanistan.

The uproar includes a chorus of Republicans who are typically reticent to confront President Trump, who has sought to deflect blame and responsibility by arguing he was not briefed on the intelligence that he claims is not credible.

But congressional Republicans and Democrats — calling the reported Russian operation “egregious” and “disturbing” — say Trump’s explanations only raise more questions that the administration must answer immediately.

Hi @mystery-ak

I am wondering how you think they are going to find the facts if this isn't investigated?  Don't you think people deserve to get the truth about whether Russia was paying terrorists to kill our troops?  Because Trump would have just been happy saying he never received a breifing.  There are so many different versions going around its pretty obvious that the truth does not abound.

Take this report from Hot Air:

AP sources: Yes, Trump was briefed on Russia putting bounties on U.S. troops earlier this year

I didn't excerpt because the whole thing needs to be read.  It goes from this report to that source on and on.

I was taught that one lie leads to another.  I have said that if this is false reporting they need to be taken to court and held accountable.  Freedom of press is not without limits.  Someone or many are lying and trying to cover up. 

Its my opinion that every Congress person should demand explanations.  And if some official made a determination they need to explain why.




PRESS RELEASEJeff Van Drew Consistently Voted Against Trump on Immigration While in Congress

Van Drew received an average grade of 35% based on a series of votes and positions. For example, Van Drew co-sponsored and voted for amnesty legislation, voted for increased visas for foreign workers, and opposed President Trump’s border wall.
Van Drew’s grade of D+ follows a long list of other liberal grades and endorsements. For example, Van Drew received a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood and is currently endorsed by the radical anti-jobs lobby, the Sierra Club.

 OMGGGGGGG
I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

OK

Katherine Herridge said so because she talked to...……

I had already read that.  So no need to read it again.  And the question is also if he wasn't briefed why not?

Not AP, OK  How about Military.com?

Just saying that Americans deserve to know what happened.
