Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “President Trump denies being briefed about Russia-Taliban bounty plot”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Trump on Sunday adamantly denied that he and Vice President Mike Pence had been briefed about a bounty Russia alleged paid the Taliban to kill US forces in Afghanistan, backing up earlier White House claims that the two were unaware.

“Nobody briefed or told me, @VPPence, or Chief of Staff @MarkMeadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians, as reported through an ‘anonymous source by the Fake News @nytimes. Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us,” Trump posted on Twitter.

“Nobody’s been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration. With Corrupt Joe Biden & Obama, Russia had a field day, taking over important parts of Ukraine – Where’s Hunter?,” he continued. “Probably just another phony Times hit job, just like their failed Russia Hoax. Who is their ‘source’?”

He called on the newspaper to reveal its source, but added that “this ‘person’ probably does not even exist!”

The New York Times reported on the bounties on Friday and claimed the president was made aware about the situation and was discussed in late March by the White House’s National Security Council.
