Washington Post: Russian bounties to Taliban fighters believed to result in deaths of US troops, intelligence assessments show
https://edition.cnn.com/2020/06/28/poli ... index.html

Did Trump know?

If so, why did he try to hide this from the American people?
Trigger Warning!!!1! :
President Donald Trump was briefed on the intelligence findings and the White House's National Security Council held a meeting about it in late March, according to the New York Times, citing officials briefed on the matter.

Wouldn't it be great if we got along with Russia, so that they can kill our brave boys and girls in far-away shithole countries?

Eric Weinstein never mentioned Trumpgate. Breitbart did not report on it. If they ever do, it will only do so in order to deny it ever happened. Whom will you believe, those unbiased sources or the creators of fake news, like CNN, WaPo et cetera.

Also, no court has found Trump guilty of it. So there. :P
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

There have been two stories in my right wing local paper, and Liz Cheney wants answers, so there might be something to Bountygate.
House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming tweeted Sunday morning that if the reports in the New York Times about the bounties were true, then the White House needed to explain what it knew about the intelligence and how it responded.

A senior official told CBS News the bounty allegations did not appear in the President's Daily Brief, a regular summary of national-security issues delivered to the president and some Cabinet secretaries. The National Security Council has been performing "due diligence" but has not found the intel assessment as described in the existing reporting, the official said.

Cheney, the third-ranking Republican in the House, specifically focused on the denials by both Trump and White House staff that neither the president nor Vice President Pence were briefed on the matter, and asked for more information on why this is the case.

"If reporting about Russian bounties on US forces is true, the White House must explain: 1. Why weren’t the president or vice president briefed?" Cheney tweeted. "Was the info in the PDB? 2. Who did know and when? 3. What has been done in response to protect our forces & hold Putin accountable?"
Of course, Cheney could just be pulling a Susan Collins. :coffee:

If Trump didn't know then he is incompetent.
If he did, then he is dishonest.

...any other possibilities?

"Trumpgate" doesn't have much of a ring to it. Benitrump Artrump deserves something more catchy.

I like bountygate, but then I'm thinking of the paper towel. If it cleans up the mess that is Trump, I will be relieved.

You got it in one. Their blood spattered baby-eating fingerprints are all over this. Too easy. They get their confreres in Russia to set up the 'We buy American scalps!' franchise operation. They 'discover' the scheme. They report said scheme to the president in his Daily Brief, which everybody knows he doesn't read. They wait for a few months. That's important, because this way the narrative has time to develop a bouquet of authenticity. They then 'leak' it to the Enemies of the People. Of course they knew about it all along--they're in on it, you know. :grr:
