That assessment, the source said, was backed up by "several pieces of information" that supported the view that there was an effort by the Russian intelligence unit -- the GRU -- to pay bounties to kill US soldiers, including interrogation of Taliban detainees and electronic eavesdropping. The source said there was some other information that did not corroborate this view but said, nonetheless, '"This was a big deal.

2. It was totally predictable he would be proven a liar, yet again.

How come HE can't predict it? He makes a fool of himself over and over.

5. Whatever lame excuse he finally lands on, is still just that.

Whether he's inept, corrupt, compromised, arrogant, lazy, etc. etc. etc., it just doesn't matter. Pick a reason, he's still unfit.

And by the way: He still hasn't said a SINGLE WORD denouncing Russia over this (or anything else they've been proven to do against us).

7. Soooo, did they read it to him like a bedtime story? Did they follow up? Did

they give him a pop quiz on it? What happened? Did they just let it drop? Why are all these tough military and security people so goddamned afraid of this guy. Are they so afraid of being canned that they would put their jobs above the security of their country and the safety of our troops? What is the matter with these people???

8. He knew. He still pushed to get Putin included at economic summits.

By the time we get rid of this monster, the US might have to fight to be included in such summits.

I am not kidding about this.

...for the election. Perhaps hack the Biden campaign or forge documents to allow Trump's allies in Congress to have pretext to hold hearings.

13. PDBs are, by definition, BRIEF

Trump is a lazy asshole. He can't be bothered to do his work, because he "knows better." He simply refuses to do his job.
