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.
This is outrageous.
Russia was offering bounties for the murders of Americans.
Our president was briefed on this months ago. He has said nothing. He has done nothing.
Except for pushing for Russia to join the G7 summit & ignoring ongoing Russian hacking & influence attacks. https://t.co/iXltFZyMbl

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.”

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
