Reporting by the New York Times that:

“Russia Secretly Offered Afghan Militants Bounties to Kill U.S. Troops, Intelligence Says”

Has twitter in an uproar and the hashtag #TraitorTrump trending.

According to reports, Trump and the administration were aware of this before Trump invited/lobbied for Russia to rejoin the G8 and also before he sent medical aid to Russia while letting Americans do without. I don’t know if any of the bounties were claimed.

I’m really angry- I can’t see this and remain calm- although I AM trying.

This one’s got legs.

 

Ted Lieu: “If true this is outrageous conduct by Russia.  Lack of a response by Donald Trump suggests he may be beholden to Putin.  POTUS is putting US troops’ lives at risk by doing nothing.  Having served on active duty, I find this behavior by our Commander in Chief to be unacceptable.”

From the article:
“An operation to incentivize the killing of American and other NATO troops would be a significant and provocative escalation of what American and Afghan officials have said is Russian support for the Taliban, and it would be the first time the Russian spy unit was known to have orchestrated attacks on Western troops.

 

Any involvement with the Taliban that resulted in the deaths of American troops would also be a huge escalation of Russia’s so-called hybrid war against the United States, a strategy of destabilizing adversaries through a combination of such tactics as cyberattacks, the spread of fake news and covert and deniable military operations.” New York Times

Let’s deal with Trump “as we did in the old days,” to reuse a quote by Trump.

Why is everyone surprised? donnie has had secret meetings
and phone calls with putin. Record takers were sent out of the room. Do you think they were talking about where the best restaurants were?
donnie is the puppet and putin is the puppet master. He is a traitor and should be impeached, removed from office and then tried for all the illegal things he has done and sent to prison for life. Do the democrats have the guts to do it? I don’t think so.

It this doesn’t call for the 25th, nothing, absolutely nothing will. Treasonous, Murdering Bastard belongs in prison. How can the others that knew stay quiet? It’s hard to find words to describe the gut – wrenching feelings.
