U.S. Republicans, Democrats want to question Trump aides over Russia bounty reports

WASHINGTON, June 29 (Reuters) - Both Democrats and President Donald Trump's fellow Republican lawmakers in Congress demanded more information from the White House on Monday after reports that Russian military intelligence offered militants bounties for killing U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

"Congress and the country need answers now. I therefore request an interagency brief for all House Members immediately," Democratic U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a letter to Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and CIA Director Gina Haspel.

"The questions that arise are: was the President briefed, and if not, why not, and why was Congress not briefed?" Pelosi wrote.

Representative Mac Thornberry, the top Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, joined the panel's chairman, Democratic Representative Adam Smith, in asking the Department of Defense for a briefing.

5. This HAS GOT to be the story that brings him down.

I know the cultists won't yield, but there are old-school Republicans who have to be disgusted by #bountygate.
