Wait, Trump wants to let Iran into the G-7 and constantly kisses Khamenei’s ass after finding out about those bounties? I missed that part of the story.

Hahahaha . . . You miss a lot from many stories.

Obama's response was to give Iran 150 billion dollars fro more bounties and terror campaigns.

Whenever a news item criticizing Trump uses as its source unnamed officials or says something has been reported with no attribution, that is fake news. Truth would have the video or names of people reporting the alleged info.

This should get interesting; Schiff being Schiffty!

"Top committee staff for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, were briefed in February on intelligence about Russia offering the Taliban bounties in Afghanistan, but he took no action in response to the briefing, multiple intelligence sources familiar with the briefing told The Federalist. The intelligence was briefed to Schiff’s staff during a congressional delegation, or CODEL, trip to Afghanistan in February.

Schiff, who has acknowledged President Donald Trump was never briefed on the so-called intelligence, has thus far refused to disclose that his staff was personally briefed. The revelation raises serious questions that Schiff is once again politicizing, and perhaps even deliberately misrepresenting, key data for partisan gain.

Asked by a reporter Tuesday if he had any knowledge of the Russia story prior to the New York Times report, Schiff said “I can’t comment on specifics.”
Schiff’s recent complaints that Trump took no action against Russia in response to rumors of Russian bounties are curious given that Schiff himself took no action after his top staff were briefed by intelligence officials. As chairman of the intelligence committee, Schiff had the authority to immediately brief the full committee and convene hearings on the matter. Schiff, however, did nothing. He did not brief his committee on the matter, nor did he brief the gang of 8, which consists of top congressional leadership in both chambers.

Schiff is demanding that the Trump administration brief all of Congress about the unverified allegations, yet he himself did not ask for a briefing of the Intelligence Committee following the February briefing of his own staff"

The Resistance media has whored out any pretense of investigative journalism to an agenda of Orange man bad. Wholesale fabrications are like "Russian collusion" are not just allowed they are deemed Pulitzer prize winners.

The problem with this line of defense is that we have a mountain of real evidence that the “Orange man” is in fact “bad,” probably even “the worst.”

Hey look! A NAMED source!...

O'Brien says top CIA official decided against briefing Trump on Russia bounty intel

Quote:
National security adviser Robert O'Brien said Wednesday that the senior career CIA officer who briefs President Trump in person made the decision not to verbally brief him on intelligence about a Russian scheme to offer bounties targeting American troops in Afghanistan, saying she lacked confidence in the veracity of the intelligence.

"The president's career CIA briefer decided not to brief him because it was unverified intelligence," O'Brien said in an interview with Fox News, adding that she is "an outstanding officer."

O'Brien told reporters at the White House following his interview that the CIA officer who serves as the president's briefer, who he did not identify, decided not to tell Mr. Trump of the Russian bounty operation "because she didn't have the confidence in the intelligence that came up."

"We get raw intelligence and tactical intelligence every day, hundreds of pieces of intelligence come in every day, thousands of pieces of intelligence come in a week," he said. "She made that call and, you know what, I think she made the right call, so I'm not going to criticize her. And knowing the facts that I know now, I stand behind that call."

Right, here comes the generalization to deflect from another fake news phony scandal. Just like Adam Schiff who claimed for years to have seen evidence of Russian collusion but was never held accountable for the falsehood the Resistance clings to its Orange man bad nonsense no matter what implausible slimming the media fabricates.
