‘Intel did not find this info credible’: Trump explains why he wasn’t briefed on ‘Russian bounties hoax’

29 Jun 2020 RT - Russia Today

In another blow to a volley of anonymously sourced claims, President Trump tweeted on Sunday night that US intelligence has “just reported to me that they did not find this info credible, and therefore did not report it to me or [Vice President Mike Pence”

Possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News NYT, wanting to make Republicans look bad!!!

New York Times takes anti-Russian hysteria to new level with report on Russian ‘bounty’ for US troops in Afghanistan

The New York Times was the first to publish allegations that Russia’s military intelligence had paid Taliban-linked militants in Afghanistan to attack NATO soldiers. Accused of knowing about this since March but failing to act on this crucial intelligence, Trump was has since faced an avalanche of accusations of treason from his critics.

The spy thriller story, however, quickly fell apart after virtually every side mentioned refuted the claims (except maybe for the “captured Afghan militants and criminals” who had allegedly shared this vital info during interrogations).

The White House and US Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe denied that the briefing described in the report ever took place.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry dismissed it as an “unsophisticated plant” that “clearly illustrates the low intellectual abilities of the propagandists from US intelligence, who, instead of inventing something more plausible, resort to conjuring up such nonsense.”

Even the Taliban ridiculed the report, saying that Afghan militants never needed any additional incentive to battle foreign invaders: “Our target killings and assassinations were ongoing in years before, and we did it on our own resources.”
