Trump's Russian Buddies Pay Militants To Kill U.S. Soldiers

Russia Offered Bounties For Taliban Militants To Kill U.S. Soldiers And Other Allies

While Trump worships and praises Putin, Putin is paying militants to kill our soldiers .... another egregious act of treason by Trump!

 

We all saw Trump throw the United States under the bus at the Helsinki Talks to appease Putin.

 

And we've all seen Trump believe the words of a single Russian  KGB agent (Putin) over 17 of his own country's Intelligence Agencies .... as well as ask Russians to hack into our cyber systems.

 

AND NOW, TRUMP'S RUSSIAN BUDDIES ARE PAYING MILITANTS TO KILL OUR SOLDIERS!!!!!!!

 

Trump's refusal to condemn Russia and punish them for slaughtering American soldiers constitutes treason at the highest level.

 

That, along with his other treasonous actions, render an obvious need to remove Trump from office immediately on charges of treason!

Trump has done nothing since getting this report so Trump by his actions so far shows he is not bothered by our people being killed for money from a 3rd party not involved now in AFG...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Notice how we have conflicting stories here.

 

Forbes: "Citing U.S. officials briefed on the intelligence, the Times reports that Russia last year offered and paid money to Taliban militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan, noting that 20 U.S. soldiers were killed in Afghanistan in 2019, though it's not clear which were linked to the bounties.

 

The Guardian: "It is not clear if bounties were ever paid out for successfully killing American soldiers. The White House denied that either Trump or the vice-president, Mike Pence, were briefed on such a matter."

 

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/27/russia-offered-bounties-afghanistan-militants-killin...

 

USA Today: The Taliban have denied the report.

 

“The United States receives thousands of intelligence reports a day, and they are subject to strict scrutiny,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement.

 

While the White House does not routinely comment on intelligence or internal deliberations, “the CIA Director, National Security Advisor, and the Chief of Staff can all confirm that neither the President nor the Vice President were briefed on the alleged Russian bounty intelligence," McEnany said.

 

McEnany said her statement “does not speak to the merit of the alleged intelligence but to the inaccuracy of the New York Times story erroneously suggesting that President Trump was briefed on this matter.”

BBC: "Afghanistan war: Russia denies paying militants to kill US troops".

 

In a series of Twitter posts, the Russian embassy in the US accused the paper of promoting fake news:

 

"Stop producing fakenews that provoke life threats, @nytimes."

 

"Baseless and anonymous accusations published by @nytimes of Moscow as mastermind behind killing of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan have already led to direct threats to the life of employees of the Russian Embassies in Washington D.C. and London."

 

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-53204747

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

The unnamed officials cited by the New York Times said US intelligence agencies had concluded months ago that a unit of Russia's GRU military intelligence agency had sought to destabilise its adversaries by covertly offering bounties for successful attacks on coalition forces.

Islamist militants, or armed criminal elements closely associated with them, were believed to have collected some money, the newspaper said.

You mean the "anonymous" sources.

If McEnany was lying, the CIA Director (who has a name), the NSA Advisor and the Chief of Staff can deny her assertians.

No .... I mean "U.S. Intelligence Agencies"  .... as identified in the very next paragraph!

Which was obviously a lie as they all knew about it and decided to do nothing!


If McEnany was lying,

She obviously was .... lying is a job requirement in Trump's  administration!

 

the CIA Director (who has a name), the NSA Advisor and the Chief of Staff can deny her assertians.

Not if they want to keep their jobs!

The US armed and financed the mujahideen (jihadists) against the Russians from 1979 to 1989. Russia has probably been doing this for years and likely will continue to years after Trump is gone....unless someone brings our troops home.

A false equivalency.

The Russians didn't worship and praise American presidents while America supplied weapons against the Russian military.

Trump worships and praises Putin while Russians not only supply weapons against American soldiers but also place a bounty on American soldiers.

And trump was briefed by our Intelligence agencies how many months ago? And trump knew!
When are we going to be seriously asking, why does trump support putin in the way that he does, not as an equal, but more like a submissive slave. What is putin holding over trump’s head, or what does trump owe putin?

Some have been asking this for at least 3 years. It’s that evident. 
Also, look at trump’s withdrawal of troops from Germany...and who wanted that...putin.

williamb: And trump was briefed by our Intelligence agencies how many months ago? And trump knew!

 

 

He was briefed in March. His response was to look the other way while pulling troops from Germany and trying to get Putin back in the G-7. He's a traitor, plain and simple.
