Top Democrats in the House of Representatives visited the White House on Tuesday morning for a briefing on the alleged bounties Russia put on American soldiers in Afghanistan -- and who at the White House knew about the intelligence and when.

The delegation was led by Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md,. and also included Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., among others. Hoyer on Monday had demanded a briefing for all House members on the matter.

"President Truman used to have a plaque on his desk that said ‘The buck stops here.’ President Trump’s approach seems to be, dangerously, as he has said before, ‘I don’t take responsibility at all,'" Hoyer said in a statement. "Over the weekend, we learned of allegations that our intelligence services assessed in March that Russia has been offering a monetary reward for killing American troops in Afghanistan. Outrageously, it appears that President Trump has taken no action since that time, not even warning the Russian government to stop."
