Republicans Want Answers From Trump's White House About New Russia Claims

Republican lawmakers are demanding answers over claims a Russian military intelligence branch offered bounties to Taliban-linked militias to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

They called on President Donald Trump and his administration to clarify the situation, and, if true, said Russia should be held accountable for its actions. Trump denied the allegation he was made aware of the bounty claims before they became public.

He said nobody briefed him, Vice President Mike Pence or White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on the "so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians," adding: "Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us."

The alleged Russian bounties and the president's knowledge of their existence were first reported by The New York Times and confirmed in reporting by other publications.

5. First he says he wasn't briefed.


Now he’s saying it wasn’t credible.

The Dotard is in a barrel he cannot get out of.

6. Or else what?

We want answers or else we'll go on the talk shows and tell the world what a great job you're doing and that we're sure you were joking and that darned liberal media is trying to make you look bad. But when you get around to it, could you drop us a note and let us know what you want us to start saying?
