WH knew of bounties in 2019

The Associated Press is reporting that the White House knew in 2019 that Russia was paying bounties to the Taliban for the death of American soldiers.

Top officials in the White House were aware in early 2019 of classified intelligence indicating Russia was secretly offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans, a full year earlier than has been previously reported, according to U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the intelligence.

The Trump Administration will lie about it, and the GOP will protect them; it’s just another bad headline that will be overtaken by some other of Trump’s serial indecencies.
