Russia Paid Bounties To Kill US Troops - Trump Mum

Rachel Maddow reviews the details of a New York Times report that U.S. intelligence told Donald Trump in March that Russia was paying bounties to Taliban fighters to kill coalition troops, including U.S. troops. Trump has yet to respond and instead has advocated for Russia's return to the G8. Aired on 6/26/2020.

Apparently first reports of it started early last year. So it would have been in several daily reports and security briefings even if he wasn't told specifically "Russians are paying bounties for our troops" which almost certainly happened several times. There will be mountains of evidence showing Trump attending multiple briefings and being told about it because some people are capable of doing their job and keeping records.

"The AP also reported that the Russian bounty threat was in Trump's PBD in 2019 and that Bolton had briefed Trump on it in March of 2019. "
