Prominent Democrat Was Aware of Russian ‘Bounties’ for Months – Did Nothing

The “do as I say, not as I do” Democrats are back at it this week…

The latest fervor over President Donald Trump’s foreign policy again centers around the Russian government, and is again being used by his opponents to cast doubt on the Commander in Chief’s patriotism.

The Democrats are complaining that President Donald Trump knew about Russia military bounties being paid to the Taliban in Afghanistan for every American soldier that they killed, and that he did nothing about it.  The insinuation is that Trump was simply allowing the slaughter of American soldiers on account of his alleged allegiance to Vladimir Putin.

The White House has responded by stating that the intelligence regarding these bounties was still in dispute, and that the FBI themselves have not considered the claims to have been corroborated.

Now we’re learning that some of the same Democrats who have complained about Trump’s supposed lack of response also knew about the bounties, yet did nothing.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA)’s aides first learned in February of allegations that a Russian military intelligence unit offered bounties for American troops in Afghanistan, according to a report.

Top Intelligence Committee staff for Schiff were briefed during a congressional trip to Afghanistan on intelligence that Russia offered the Taliban bounties in Afghanistan, but Schiff took no action in response to the briefing, sources told The Federalist.

Schiff has so far refused to acknowledge that his staff was aware of the allegations. “I can’t comment on the specifics,” he said when asked by a reporter whether he indeed knew of the intelligence before the New York Times story. He has also acknowledged that Trump was never briefed on the intelligence.

Schiff and President Trump have been butting heads from the moment that the latter stepped into the American political arena, with Schiff spearheading much of the “formal impeachment inquiry” that sought to have Trump removed from office several months ago.
