Russia Bounty (gate) now has some receipts as both parties in Congress have gotten their security briefings. Trump still maintains ignorance which is not hard to imagine because of his complicit cooperation with Russia, which only makes the timeline of briefings since 2019 even harder to reconcile, reminding ourselves of 2019’s Ukraine antics. Claiming ignorance probably runs counter to a whole new set of “perfect” quasi-transcripts, which to now have alarmed a host of administration experts.

Can you even imagine having the responsibility of leading this great nation and not caring enough to read vital information needed to keep America and our military safe? Not even giving a shit to prepare for calls with world leaders? Such arrogance and stupidity.
