Lord Damp Nut, as we all know, thinks that Bounty-gate is a hoax created by the FAKE NEWS! and the Democrat(s), and so he is not planning any response.
The WaPo (emphasis mine):
The White House is not planning an immediate response to intelligence reports of Russian bounties given to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan because President Trump does not believe the reports are true or “actionable,” according to two senior administration officials.
Trump is not convinced he should do anything about the bounty issue, which he decried in a Wednesday morning tweet as “just another made up by Fake News tale that is told only to damage me and the Republican Party.” One administration official said there is an internal White House dispute about how much information to declassify to support the president’s skepticism of the intelligence.
Comforting! Arguing over how to cherrypick information is always a good sign. And as usual, instead of looking to see what’s true (it’s all true), the Justice Department wants to find out who spilled the beans:
And though the administration has sought to downplay the veracity of the intelligence, O’Brien said the CIA has asked the Justice Department to open a leak investigation on the matter.
And then the Adult in the Room, Rapture enthusiast, angry grifter Secretary of State Mike Pompeo comes to the rescue:
“They saw the same intelligence that we saw, so it would be interesting to ask them what they did when they saw whatever intelligence it is that they are referring to.”
So now we are left with the truth that Russia indeed paid the Taliban a bounty for killing Americans (we even know who the middleman is), we know that Comrade Trump knew about it a long time ago, and now we know that the 4th Reich is scrambling to get their lies straight, and that The Russian Usurper has no plans to counter his paymaster, Putin.
It’s just another day for the gang.
