Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., told Fox News Radio Tuesday that it is unlikely President Trump was briefed on intelligence that Russia secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing American troops in Afghanistan due to the information's unverified nature.
"I don't think the president was briefed," Kinzinger told "The Brian Kilmeade Show." "The briefer made the decision when he -- keep in mind this is when the coronavirus pandemic is kicking off as well -- skipped over that issue to wait for more information."

The New York Times report on the intelligence sent shockwaves throughout Washington over the weekend. A senior U.S. official told Fox News Monday that the National Security Council recently met to come up with a "menu of responses" to Russian action in Afghanistan. However, a White House official said the president was not briefed on the matter until "after the NY Times reported on unverified intelligence" Friday.
