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 assessment was included in at least one of President Donald Trump’s written daily intelligence briefings at the time, according to the officials. Then-national security adviser John Bolton also told colleagues he briefed Trump on the intelligence assessment in March 2019.

The White House did not respond to questions about Trump or other officials’ awareness of Russia’s provocations in 2019. The White House has said Trump was not — and still has not been — briefed on the intelligence assessments because they have not been fully verified. However, it is rare for intelligence to be confirmed without a shadow of a doubt before it is presented to top officials.

ADVERTISEMENTBolton declined to comment Monday when asked by the AP if he had briefed Trump about the matter in 2019. On Sunday, he suggested to NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Trump was claiming ignorance of Russia’s provocations to justify his administration’s lack of a response.

“He can disown everything if nobody ever told him about it,” Bolton said.The revelations cast new doubt on the White House’s efforts to distance Trump from the Russian intelligence assessments. The AP reported Sunday that concerns about Russian bounties were also included in a second written presidential daily briefing earlier this year and that current national security adviser Robert O’Brien had discussed the matter with Trump. O’Brien denies he did so.

On Monday night, O’Brien said that while the intelligence assessments regarding Russian bounties “have not been verified,” the administration has “been preparing should the situation warrant action.”The administration’s earlier awareness of the Russian efforts raises additional questions about why Trump did not take any punitive action against Moscow for efforts that put the lives of Americans servicemembers at risk. Trump has sought throughout his time in office to improve relations with Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, moving earlier this year to try to reinstate Russia as part of a group of world leaders it had been kicked out of.

Officials said they did not consider the intelligence assessments in 2019 to be particularly urgent, given that Russian meddling in Afghanistan is not a new occurrence. The officials with knowledge of Bolton’s apparent briefing for Trump said it contained no “actionable intelligence,” meaning the intelligence community did not have enough information to form a strategic plan or response. However, the classified assessment of Russian bounties was the sole purpose of the meeting.

ADVERTISEMENTThe officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to disclose the highly sensitive information.The intelligence that surfaced in early 2019 indicated Russian operatives had become more aggressive in their desire to contract with the Taliban and members of the Haqqani Network, a militant group aligned with the Taliban in Afghanistan and designated a foreign terrorist organization in 2012 during the Obama administration.

The National Security Council and the undersecretary of defense for intelligence did hold meetings regarding the intelligence. The Pentagon declined to comment and the NSC did not respond to questions about the meetings.Concerns about Russian bounties flared anew this year after members of the elite Naval Special Warfare Development Group, known to the public as SEAL Team Six, raided a Taliban outpost and recovered roughly $500,000 in U.S. currency. The funds bolstered the suspicions of the American intelligence community that the Russians had offered money to Taliban militants and other linked associations.

The White House contends the president was unaware of this development as well.The officials told the AP that career government officials developed potential options for the White House to respond to the Russian aggression in Afghanistan, which was first reported by The New York Times. However, the Trump administration has yet to authorize any action.

The intelligence in 2019 and 2020 surrounding Russian bounties was derived in part from debriefings of captured Taliban militants. Officials with knowledge of the matter told the AP that Taliban operatives from opposite ends of the country and from separate tribes offered similar accounts.

The officials would not name the specific groups or give specific locations in Afghanistan or time frames for when they were detained.Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Putin, denied that Russian intelligence officers had offered payments to the Taliban in exchange for targeting U.S. and coalition forces.

The U.S. is investigating whether any Americans died as a result of the Russian bounties. Officials are focused in particular on an April 2019 attack on an American convoy. Three U.S. Marines were killed after a car rigged with explosives detonated near their armored vehicles as they returned to Bagram Airfield, the largest U.S. military installation in Afghanistan.

The Marines exchanged gunfire with the vehicle at some point; however, it’s not known if the gunfire occurred before or after the car exploded.Abdul Raqib Kohistani, the Bagram district police chief, said at the time that at least five Afghan civilians were wounded after the attack on the convoy, according to previous reporting by the AP. It is not known if the civilians were injured by the car bomb or the gunfire from U.S. Marines.

The Defense Department identified Marine Staff Sgt. Christopher Slutman, 43, of Newark, Delaware; Sgt. Benjamin Hines, 31, of York, Pennsylvania; and Cpl. Robert Hendriks, 25, of Locust Valley, New York, as the Marines killed in April 2019. The three Marines were all infantrymen assigned to 2nd Battalion, 25th Marines, a reserve infantry unit headquartered out of Garden City, New York.

Hendriks’ father told the AP that even a rumor of Russian bounties should have been immediately addressed.“If this was kind of swept under the carpet as to not make it a bigger issue with Russia, and one ounce of blood was spilled when they knew this, I lost all respect for this administration and everything,” Erik Hendriks said.

Marine Maj. Roger Hollenbeck said at the time that the reserve unit was a part of the Georgia Deployment Program-Resolute Support Mission, a recurring six-month rotation between U.S. Marines and Georgian Armed Forces. The unit first deployed to Afghanistan in October 2018.

Three other service members and an Afghan contractor were also wounded in the attack. As of April 2019, the attack was under a separate investigation, unrelated to the Russian bounties, to determine how it unfolded.The officials who spoke to the AP also said they were looking closely at insider attacks — sometimes called “green-on-blue” incidents — from 2019 to determine if they are also linked to Russian bounties.

Just because a DS Dickhead thinks it, doesn't make it 'intelligence'. Even if it were true, it would have made ZERO difference in troop defense. You always operate as if the enemy has as much incentive as he needs, anyway. Alyssa_Milano RepAdamSchiff sure was. Even if true, is it so different from the Most Wanted Iraqi playing cards where the US paid out millions? And don't claim the CIA is above paying someone to eliminate someone. Glass houses aren't bulletproof. We kill them. They kill us. That's SOP in war, no matter your politics.

I'm not surprised. We as voters HAVE to get out and vote him OUT FOR GOOD. Bye bye Treasonist!!!! Bolton is discredited. Who are these Top officials?

MGC3I There's ZERO evidence, but your Trump hatred is over the top, and means you don't care about facts; you just want to believe the worst. SweetLittleOkie Sorry - but there must be dozens, or hundreds of people that have committed treason by letting this go on for over a year. They are traitors for not speaking up.

northwind1ndn TrumpKnewAndDidNothing Alyssa_Milano Absolutely infuriating OmarKelly I’m so confused. Iran was actually killing American Troops and supporting the Taliban as well with money and weapons. No one cared when Obama gave away the farm to Iran to get a nuclear deal. Alyssa_Milano Just because the AP prints it does not make it true. What is against the law is the annoymous sources whom spew this BS. They need to be arrested!

TrumpTreason AP is lying You gave the Afghans red eye missiles to shoot down Russians. What do you expect. I hope Seal Team Six goes rogue. Any vet who still supports this guy and the GOP is probably little more than an ignorant racist and traitor to his brothers & sisters in arms. GOP killed American soldiers.

Not according to what several Democrats and the Pentagon just said. fakenews Can we just not do Russiagate anymore? It's just getting dumber. LockHimUp So was the Senate intelligence committee also briefed? If so, GOP senators voted not to impeach knowing all of this Why cannot congress get a straight answer from American Intelligence? Have they been gagged?

ArkansasBlog Probably Obama & Hillary's fault. Got to blame someone else. Suzyqfit4u grrrrrrrr I don't know if you realize it, but the Taliban was already trying their absolute best to kill US troops. Or do you believe this because the Russians and Taliban historically have such a great working relationship?

Eric Hendricks, father of dead soldier says if any of this is true, about bounties trump oked with Putin, he will then lose respect for trump.

The “President” is a traitor. TheJusticeDept What do you say, or do you support the President’s denials? POTUS cares more about Russia than American troops. Not sure why is retweeting this CIA talkin point lie 24/7. Instead of made up reason for another war, instead do some actual journalism and report on the starvation and increasing evictions going on right now in the United States!

Alyssa_Milano More Fake news from AP MiaFarrow This 👇speaks volumes,whatever Putin has on him it’s a biggie Putin laid his cards on the table in that meeting and he owned him from that day on and it shows on Trumps face and the satisfaction on Putin’s. Socialists 70 years ago said: 'If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.' I'm disappointed that media & democrats have chosen the 'Russia' mantra over a shockingly twisted version of the facts as their best campaign strategy.

EBASports This is a BULLSHIT STORY!! We have known since 2010 the taliban gets paid to kill U.S. soldiers. Why do you people act like this is something new. WhoKnew? TraitorsOfAmerica Alyssa_Milano Alyssa_Milano I know you won't answer this Alyssa because you're a wuss but but 'So What!' Why wouldn't you expect Russia to be doing something like this? Do you think this is the first time they've done this? No, it's not. They've been doing crap like this for ever. How is this Trumps fault?

Alyssa_Milano FAKE NEWS ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE Alyssa_Milano But. Her. Emails! Alyssa_Milano YOU BULLSHIT ARTISTS More bullcrap from the likes of the pissed-off John Bolton who continues to trash Trump.War-monger! I do not believe a thing the says. They are a far left fuzzy news agency that drives along the same roads as MSNBC CNN nytimes washingtonpost who are the worst of the worst

The entire Republican Party is responsible for this pig president. Their silence equals acceptance. realDonaldTrump gtconway3d NicolleDWallace DavidMuir Since Trump doesn’t like to read, I am sure someone spoke to him. The very stable genius probably did not take notes and also had no intention of confronting Putin. He just sat on it hoping it would go away on its own.

Says who? An anonymous source!!! Of course!!! It’s ANOTHER DEMOCRAT LIE!! Again, don’t know what th charges 4 a pres knowing of this and failing 2 do anything about it would b, however, if he did know and yet did nothing and or collaborated w our enemies, it seems 2 me this constitutes a serious charge that should be met w a strong punishment.

Remember the days when the media did their job and actually vetted stories before printing them? Yeah, those days are gone. Their TDS has destroyed whatever integrity they once had. And once again the liberal media make fools of themselves. There no evidence to support the claims. The media is so worthless these days that they will literally print anything some low level lackey chooses to leak, whether there’s evidence or not.

And there is only one reason why the WhiteHouse did nothing to protect our soldiers.... POTUS VP GOP DNC PutinsPuppets LevParnas TraitorTrump TraitorPence RussianBounty Of all the terrible things that could happen in our country, our president becoming a Russian asset is the most deplorable, treasonable and corrupt act possible.

PressSec, will surely speak soon to clear up all the lies she told yesterday, right? Bullcrap. More lies being slung to see what sticks. I can’t imagine ever letting a child of mine ever enlist again. Escort him out of the WH in handcuffs NOW...HE KNEW OUR SOLDIERS WERE BEING MURDERED - THIS NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED NOW.

gop vp realdonaldtrump not surprised since the administration knew of the covid outbreak in China but the trade deal was more important to save face with Xi This is the most dishonorable, disgraceful thing Trump’s done yet — our Commander and Chief abandoning our fighting men and women on the battlefield.

Trump and the GOP are American terrorists who’ve been compromised by Russian blackmail. All must be tried for their treason crimes and removed/imprisoned. Lock him up. Putin is not a friend of the united states. Not sure why this concept is a challenge when he’s demonstrating it repeatedly. 🇺🇸 donothingtrump This is absolutely disgusting!!! Everyone involved should be tried for treason!!!

Read this stop believing AP propaganda So is paying Ukraine the same. 'SEAL Team Six, raided a Taliban outpost and recovered roughly $500K. The funds bolstered suspicions of the American intelligence community that the Russians had offered money to Taliban militants' The White House contends the president was unaware of this development as well.

TransRightsMOVE Ah ha! It's not fake news it is fake White House press briefings. Officials say there was no 'actionable intelligence' and it did not rise to an urgent matter. Who thinks a president should retaliate against another country with flimsy data? Better to get more information before retaliating.

You are fake news! Staff Sgt Slutman leaves a wife and 3 daughters, the youngest was 4 when he was killed. The mainstream media, including AP, New York Times, Etc are all fake news, they've never said one good thing about Donald Trump, only bad, that should tell you something Bolton seems to have lots of handy information ready to go just when it’s time to sell books. Huh

SchreiberEvan FakeNews SchreiberEvan So what did Obama do about Iran's bounty program? Did you care? Did you demand accountability for this? Incredible It's fake. You're fake. Please fake off. Th whole world knows the taliban and Russians kill Americans- what’s your point? Of course, AP is much better informed than our Intelligence Services, that is why they continually publish unsubstantiated information, totally in lockstep with the Socialist Democrat Party!

Sick if he knew and didn’t do anything HE WENT GOLFING SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. Bs. TRE45SON The Guilty Old Party and BenedictDonald are OK with troop’s getting hunted as prizes, and instead want to criticize the leak. Make them wear that badge of disgrace and dishonor forever. 👉🏾👉🏾I saw this & thought, P O W E R F U L !👈🏾👈🏾

FakeNews and the AP knows it It is well within the realm of possibilities. 45 should take these notice from the intelligence community more seriously. Unlike him, Putin is ex-KGB in addition to being rich and powerful. 45 may be jeopardizing the safety of American citizens. dan_bernstein If Biden is so ahead of President Trump in the polls, Democrats wouldn’t even be going back to another loser Russian hoax. They wouldn’t even be pushing for vote-by-mail, because if Biden was really ahead, dems would be talking how they’ll have record numbers at the voting booths

😡😡😡😡 Top tier Democrats going to the WhiteHouse is an oxymoron. Is there a such a thing as a top tier Democrat ? Another RussiaHoax Why is it always sources never names? And the Pentagon says there is no intelligence to support this AP can never be trusted What sources? Remove Trump from office. Nominate a new Republican for November. Say Mitt Romney?

what a false sense of security to guys citizens. he loves the military he said. even they died as the president couldn’t protect them either. In your 3rd paragraph you state Bolton briefed Pres March 2019, 5th par you state Bolton won't comment on it dan_bernstein Democrats have to keep going back to the Russia narrative to try an appease their donors who gave big money to them in return for getting Trump removed from office. The donors were lied to, as well as the American people. It was all based on a lie and Trump is still in office.

KattyKay_ MSM circling the wagons Hoax Ok. So, did he not invite the Taliban to CampDavid around this same time? Normal people remember when trump killed Iranian general that he was getting us into war with a hapless country. The same idiots on the left who were terrified then are now acting like they would nuke Russia who is a nuclear power and not as hapless as Iran. Beyond stupid!!!!!

Treason!! proudliberalmom seems quite a few knew about this if Bolton admits he knew. So why was it kept quiet and no one including Bolton said anything, Bolton certainly does a lot of interviews. tedious our traitor /. djt believes in military troops/. they just do not happen to be usa military soldier's/. when a very sick potus allows bounty's to be placed on our soldiers is nothing less than treasonous.,when is he held accountable to being a puppet to russia?/.STRONG RESPONSE/.

I believe it is another Russia impeachment, and will be proven lying. Oh Russian boogey man again FakeNews It was known by WH in early ‘19, which means Trump, VP, the NSA, Sec.ofState, Sec.ofDef, etc had briefings about it. It would take an impossibly Herculian task to keep the Intel from Trump and Pence, which no one believes. Our allies were briefed. TraitorTrump

Probably wrong. Probably a lie. Why wasn't it in Bolten's book? Why won't he confirm it now?. Will you continually repost a retraction like you keep reposting this? Is there a death penalty in the US for traitors? Traitor to the US people. ThrowHimOut AP you don’t have ANY credibility left....the only ones left believing your drivel are iPhone addicted social media obsessed thumb typing celebrity impressed 20 somethings...you know the ones marching in the street

It’s already been debunked PaHouseDems Just when you think it can’t get worse, realDonaldTrump says “hold my Shirley Temple.” 🤯🤬 News cycle: Russia, Russia, Russia {insert Former Disgruntled Employee here}, Iran, Ukraine {insert F.D.E. here} , Impeach, Covid {insert F.D.E. here}, Protests, back to Covid, back to Iran {insert F.D.E. here}, back to Russia. Anyone seeing the pattern yet?

Unbelievable, what the United States of America has become. Everything about trump and Russia is true Democrats act like they didn’t love Russia and Iran and China for the last 50 years.... I am not seeing a story here people should remember Charlie Wilson democrat who gave the Taliban missiles to knock out the Russian helicopters they were later used on coalition forces.

PaHouseDems I just want to say how cool it is that the news media and the Democrat party can work together so closely. We’re the perfect team. 😘 How is this different from Charlie Wilson's War....? Whatever you’re starting to be irrelevant. FakeNews Criminal trump, u should STEP down right now. Begging what for one?

I smell bullshit And they told the president they weren’t credible If this doesn't enflame the GOP, which I'm not expecting, this proves beyond a reasonable a doubt that MoscowMitch and the GOPBetrayedAmerica. More fake News. Maybe you should tell that to the Department of Justice. Pentagon says ‘no corroborating’ evidence to stand up NYT report on Russian bounties

Wonder how Trump cultists and GOP fake patriots are going to spin that one...it is really bad even by Trump standards. “Sources say”....sure thing. This is factually false The “officials insist on anonymity” per this article. These “officials” are the only source per this article. This is not verified other than by an anonymous unnamed official that we can’t verify is even a government official. Fake news. Do we not have journalistic stds anymore?

....and ur source? Trump has time for golf but no time to be briefed even after it's well known by everybody?! What buffoonery is this?! This is treasonous! Unsubstantiated intelligence? Russia's behavior, under Putin, may have passed the point of no return. A rogue state which must be contained by a renewed NATO.

Even by Trumps standards, this is really bad. Taliban was creation of CIA for ousting USSR from Afghanistan. Probably same was done by US in early 80s. Pay back time by present Russia. Charge Trump with Treason; one qualification to charge a sitting president with Treason is if he has been impeached and Trump has been impeached - he must face Criminal charges and depart the White House.
