Russia Hoax 2.0? Trump Calls Out The Democrats’ Latest Fake News Obsession

(Liberty Bell) – The media got themselves all in a tizzy over the weekend as questionably sourced news broke that Russia had reportedly offered a bounty to members of the Taliban on the heads of American military personnel.

If this “intelligence” were true, it would certainly be highly concerning and in dire need of a response.

However, as it turns out, it may have been some poorly-supported intelligence that the Deep State Democrats and their stenographers in the media jumped all over in their latest attempt to portray Trump as soft on Russia or in Putin’s pocket.

Consider the danger they could be putting our nation in by trying to stoke the flames of an international crisis when, for the tiny wisps of smoke that there may have been, there was absolutely no fire.

Are these people willing to encourage our nation to engage in a military conflict if it meant they could get a dig in at Trump?

The likelihood that this is the case is highly troubling.

On Sunday, President Donald Trump responded to these reports, writing on Twitter that, in reality US intelligence “did not find this info credible” and that he’d never been briefed on the matter.

“Intel just reported to me that they did not find this info credible, and therefore did not report it to me or @VP. Possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News @nytimesbooks, wanting to make Republicans look bad!!!” he wrote.

The story, sourced from conveniently anonymous officials, said that the intelligence had been briefed to Trump and discussed by his National Security Council in March, but that a formal response was never announced.

National Review explains:

According to the reports, U.S. officials have focused on an April 2019 attack that killed three U.S. Marines after a car rigged with explosives detonated near an armored convoy that was returning to Bagram Airfield, the largest U.S. military installation in Afghanistan. Further evidence came from “interrogations of captured Afghan militants and criminals,” as well as a raid of a Taliban outpost that was conducted earlier this year by SEAL Team Six and recovered roughly $500,000 in American dollars.

However, both the Russians the Taliban, two entities both known for their hatred of one another and absolutely no interest in keeping Trump’s reputation intact, have denied the allegations.

Trump’s refutation to the story was also supported by reports from CBS News’ Catherine Herridge that a senior official had told her “the GRU/Taliban bounty allegations were not contained in the President’s Daily Brief (PDB).”

“The official confirmed the NSC has been doing ‘due diligence,’ and going back through their files since the story broke Friday, and they have not found the ‘intelligence assessment’ described in media reporting,” Herridge, a very well-respected intelligence reporter, tweeted.

“The official said the review is ongoing, but given current talks with the Taliban, intel about a GRU operation involving the Taliban, targeting US forces would have risen to the level of inclusion in the PDB.”

  1. The Racist porpaganda Democrat and lying hypocite libreal fake news media’s all these are nothing But attacking president Trump with lie’s 24/7 iam so sick and tired of piece worthless Democrat and Lib medias,
    I stop watched any news and even here local news maybe just for3mintues,

  2. Pelosi is getting even more desperate as the re-election nears! I guess calling an entire group of her fellow countrymen murderers of Floyd didn’t gain her much traction! What a bitter backstabber! One day she will taste the reality of her hatred and lies and it won’t be as sweet as the ice cream she doesn’t know what she could do without. Just like the souls of all the babies she has promoted the murder of, karma is waiting for the right time to adjust her black heart!!!

  3. One needs to really start questioning the intelligence of too
    much of the American population. What a surprise!!!? It’s
    new to them that Russia has been doing this sort o’thing and similar, and worse forever… while the military is not aware & prepared by now … you really think that so!? God help, pls ! And believe me it won’t change… coming to the USA “via” the WII …I see how still, certainly the Democrats’ head honchos seem to be dense enough to not realize the facts of history, so blindly self-righteous over power hunger to willingly & stupidly overlook the destruction of their land.

  4. The MSM need to stop using their ideological ouija boards in various vain attempts to conjure up the jaded spirits of long since debunked “conspiracy theories” aimed at President Trump! Your “fair-haired” girl LOST in 2016, and that doddering old fool of a candidate you’ve chosen this time around won’t fare any better! GET OVER IT! GTFOI!!!

  5. You can read about this all day long folks, and just amuse yourself with surprise? Hardly, well known by all us military. common practice between warring nations. Sound cruel, yes and no. War is war, but a bounty on the death of an enemy member, not good nor reliable rules of engagement, borders on heartless murder, not defense nor for the cause to win the conflict, just plain murder, and soldiers are not to relent to murder, but to defend and conquer with honor, for the cause of right over wrong, good over evil.

  6. REALLY THE DEMS SHOULD JUST USE THEIR STANDARD LINE…………..IT WAS A VIDEO THAT STARTED ALL THE DESTRUCTION IN AMERICA? YOU KNOW LIKE AT BENGHAZI AND SUSAN RICE WITH THE KILLERY ENDORSING THE LIE?

  7. Before one can assert fault of whether POTUS or the VP new about it, I think you would have to first prove that the bounty rumor is true, because that’s all it is at the moment, a rumor. No corroboration or confirmation, anonymous source only suggests it is asserted in a low level report with no supporting intel. “Anonymous source”, and no corroborating intel, usually indicates intentional misinformation, much like elements of “the dirty dossier”, not necessarily polititcal, but also possibly a foreign or domestic intel ploy affecting military and national defense decisions. Bounties from Russia to the Taliban on US Soldiers in Afghanistan would not change our mission in Afghanistan, but it may affect US policy concerning Iran and Syria. I wouldn’t even put it past a warmongering hawk like Bolton to plant such uncorroborated intel to sway others towards his opinions on national defense policies, especially at the time peace talks were being negotiated with the Taliban in Afghanistan, which he strongly opposed, and his aversion to Russia’s support of Syria and Iran. If it were up to Bolton, we would be disasterously at war with Syria, Iran and essentially Russia. But a Bolton scenario is just one possibility of many.
