Here we go again, y’all. Its time for another round of RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA!!! I’m your host, Marmee, and today’s topic is RUSSIA!
Has this dead horse not been beaten enough? Now we have another round of Russian collusion except this time Trump is accused of allowing Russia to put bounties on American soldier’s heads.
This has to be the most absurd accusation out of all of the ones we’ve seen so far. Trump is the most pro-military President we have ever had. He wants a well-fitted and robust military. He makes sure our men go to fight wars with the latest and greatest military tech. That is all well and great, but to be the most pro-military President, you have to care about the soldiers’ lives. Trump has promised not to take us to war. He does not want to see America’s dead.
Trump gives the military what they need to be successful if we need them, but does not want to use them as a first resort. This is the reason why war-mongering John Bolton was fired from his job by Trump.
BUT, they want me to believe that Trump knew that Putin was responsible for putting bounties on American’s heads, and Trump didn’t do a thing to stop it.
THAT IS B***SH**!
The Russian intelligence was not vetted, and there was no consensus among the intelligence agencies on whether this was a valid piece of intelligence to brief the President on.
That didn’t stop the New York Times from putting that on the front page of their newspaper. Classified and unverified information is like a full Christmas dinner to the poser journalists. Their only objective is to take down the President by any means necessary.
DNI Ratcliffe put out a statement via twitter categorically denying the New York Times claims that the President knew about this unverified and classified information.
Statement by DNI Ratcliffe: “I have confirmed that neither the President nor the Vice President were ever briefed on any intelligence alleged by the New York Times in its reporting yesterday.”
“The White House statement addressing this issue earlier today, which denied such a briefing occurred, was accurate. The New York Times reporting and all other subsequent news reports about such an alleged briefing are inaccurate.”
It sounds like the mainstream media (who are trying every way they can to take down a dually elected president) failed again. It’s a real shame that they haven’t learned a single thing after 4 years of constant embarrassing failure. Such is life for a bootlicker.
