Christopher Slutman, 43, were the other Marines killed in the attack, which came days before they were due to return home from Afghanistan.The Times on Friday first reported that U.S. intelligence agencies had assessed that a Russian intelligence unit last year offered bounties to Islamist fighters in Afghanistan who killed U.S. soldiers.

The newspaper reported that one of the officials it cited had said it appeared in the president's daily brief on Feb. 27.

Fake news It might have been a briefing but there was no evidence yet. Fake News! FAKE NEWS NYT and CNBC Why is it that most people do not understand that everything the orange TURD-IN-CHIEF says is the diametric opposite to the truth. It's really not that hard. And it also includes the fetid administration he's put in charge of ruining this country. He's guilty of treason too.

You are using NYT as a source? The gop is complicit in murder!! From another one of their 'anonymous' sources, no doubt.... 😂😂😂😂 Journalism is dead.... How the hell is it allowed that the WH briefs republicans and democrats separately? Are they hiding something? One would assume they’re reporting the same information. It’s just more shady behavior.

fakenews Why media always knows things earlier than President? Why media always disclose classified information that will hurt the service men and women? Of course Russia did this, but proving it might be impossible and at what price? Further, don’t you think these paid assassins would have done it anyway?

...the nytimes reports....bwahahahahahahaha...so, it's not true then, right WHNSC , who has the facts, disagrees with media spin. Twitter these media posts are manipulation and wrong and pose a threat to the country. Nytimes reports unsubstantiated claim. CNBC runs with it. And...? And everyone involved has denied this being a thing. Give it up CNBC. You're a joke of a new org and shouldn't be trusted by anyone.

Responsible for the deaths of soldiers and citizens alike. So much winning. Because John Bolton says? Yeah, ok... NYT is full of shit . They don’t know shit ... Russia lost war in Afghanistan . They don’t vibe like that Name your sources. Otherwise STFU A non story which was totally debunked by the US Intelligence agency....more russian hoax garbage

Lol.. TheTimes.. Give Trump a break, will you. It’s never simple going up against your own boss. racist trump begging PUTIN, Xi for reelection. pscho trump has done WHATEVER if REelected. Dirty Racist Wacko trump. trump is JUST National Criminal. Lock him trump UP Forever. sorry i misread that as russian boobies.. no my mind isn't full of shit, it's trump, so.

They're just pesants 😡😡😡😡 It’s comical anyone would take any article the nytimes writes about Trump as honestly written. So what if it is true! Is he suppose to pull troops and have them come home with tail tucked between tbeir legs C mon! Send more over then! Traitor So? Fake news just like Russian news they did ?

If you believe the NY Slimes, then you are probably one of the dumbest s.o.b.'s on Earth. Fake news I’m old enough to remember NYT reporting Kim Jung Un brain dead and all the msm media reporting it as well.... Lies! It is so disappointing to see our country sell out to a communist country “China “ Who has no freedoms! And work for pennies on the dollar in factories well their skin peels off

Besides being on Twitter, what does he do all day?! FakeNews There must be some reason for NyT to make up this story. Who is the biggest threat? Russia or CCP. I bet That NYT think that it’s Russia. So really need this story as distract. Let me remind you ... Having hidden the truth, be aware, this president may start a war with Iran or somewhere else to stay in power.

us and Russia compete against each other over there for many year, proxy or non proxy war, this is not a secret. President is briefed every detailed unverified Intel? It sounds illogic. The president said that he was not briefed on the matter and now everybody knows that he was briefed. Wake up everyone, and stand up to remove such a liar from the WH. This is much more important than the story of president Nixon when he extended the Vietnam war.

Draft dodger traitor resign It was actually for Barry Soetoro’s admin. but keep on lying. What you’re good for. FakeNews Any news from The NY Times is a lie, so ignore whatever they print. Most important - do not buy their paper or products they advertise. That’s the problem, realDonaldTrump doesn’t read. He needs picture 📖.

Just stop. CIA inspired Russiagate Fatigue Syndrome set in long ago. Why the hell are we even still in Afghanistan? 19 YRs? More alleged reports from anonymous sources. So done w the hyoerventilating conspiracy theorists. Can’t stand Trump but don’t trust the CIA either. How in the hell is a CRIMINAL the PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA!

a briefing on an unsubstantiated report? Fake News trying to stir the pot. Remember when George W. Bush was briefed on the Niger Letter - which turned out to be a hoax - how did that turn out? Thousands of lives, trillions of dollars fought in Iraq War. But he doesn't read! NYT, fake news, no credibility, propaganda tool for the Marxist Dems. Go out of business please.

Chinese public companies listed in the US defraud Americans with fraudulent financials and bogus statements !! those Chinese companies are manipulated to lure buyers in !! Here comes another LK ala GSX and PDD and others !!! and nobody is stopping it !!!! Lazy leftist journalism: Operation Cyclone Regan Doctrine Stinger missiles Why is anyone surprised Russia might want to return the favor? Why would anyone think the US Army hasn’t taken all the precautions it can?

Nytimes and unnamed sources lol. Yeah ok and then throw in CNBC what a joke Trump is a traitor, he knew in February and did nothing! Ouch. TraitorTrump TrumpIsARacist BunkerBoy TrumpIsATraitor VoteOutTheGOP VoteBlue2020 VoteBiden2020 FakeNews NYTFOS Don’t know anything about this story...but if is in the New York Times is must be a LIE.

Trump back in his bunker Well he can’t do anything against his master White House denies the Report. Why is this posted when already proven false? Considering it’s knows they take money from communist Chinese, I’m impressed at the ignorance level I’m using nytimes as a source. He is a traitor and a treasonous man of the worse kind! This is Donald Trump!

Fake Benghazi... How many times have you seen him grieve over a dead soldier? Still waiting. I believe this story just because he loves Putin. That love supersedes any love of our military...what does Putin have on him? Oh, we’re going to find out eventually... So like which 'months'? Covid months or impeachment months? Or Russia collusion months/years?

Fact check: Pelosi and Schumer both received the same detailed report on Russia, and neither of them ran up the red flag Stop reporting this. It is not accurate. I know you are used to reporting inaccurate news, but you are making things on this country worse. STOP You are either with Trump or you are with the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. You chose.

But Ivanka didn’t brief him. Sorry. Don’t believe it. We’ve seen many, many times how far Corrupt Government Officials, including Military will go to undermine President Trump. Thank you most trusted nytimes The New York Times is so trustworthy too!🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ Everything around him is falling apart. Liars Ruining our country with your lies!!! Don’t cry when you’ve gone so far you find yourself imprisoned by the terrorist you enable by your false narratives.

Fake news Lies so you get paid. 2010 Obama you mean Derelict of duty Wau! Such a reliable source So chump trump is always aware of ratings tweets and other bullshit. So either he doesn’t read or care about intelligence or he read it and doesn’t care about US soldiers. Or he read it and since it mentioned his master Putin he did nothing. Danger to USA regardless.

Too bad his supporters won’t believe it or even give a shit if it’s true. What Proof?! If true, don't you think it should be presented in a formal setting? Don't you think the American People should be presented the Evidence? Are we sure it's not the same Lies that got us in the Iraq War? Why are the presstitutes always wrong? Lies EndlessWars

How is this news? Isn't he pulling out troops out? CNBC is total Fake News Propaganda Jerks! Incorrectly reported but hey who cares about facts. Proven FAKENews already. Notice the missing S O U R C E ? why are you spreading lies? We get it. Vote for Joe and problem solved. I don't think Trump knows who is he working for. USA or DonaldTrump .

Lock him up NYT=FAKE NEWS IF true....... The New York Times reported Monday night, citing two officials with knowledge of the matter. Create news.....then the report it. Today’s NYT. CNBC , CNN, MSNBC ........ You all have promoted so many Fake news we don't know what to believe.realDonaldTrump shirenar

TRE45ON How can that be true Ratcliffe said he didn’t....... They should have sent it in a tweet. Just have an old white dude in a Trump decorated golf cart yell 'white power' and then tell him. They need to do things that get his attention. Always with the anonymous sources TREASON!! Remember Benghazi! sarcasm

Media just making stuff up and the gullible Dems continue to fall for it like fools 💄✋🚫 More than A Year Ago. Fake news by NY times Rellyluvsfairen We need to end this soon. Trump keeps lying and changing his lies...meanwhile, our troops are still being threatened by Trump’s puppet master, Putin. Trump knew

Hey, Trump likes the troops that weren't killed or captured. OK.? He is responsible for 150.000 of americans' death..no Russian threat can beat that.. Instead of making up fake stuff about Trump, why not boast about how great Biden will be? lol In 2019 That would have been a classified briefing. How would the times get their hands on that? Either they are guilty of espionage against the USA or they made it up.

Fake news Trump knew. Lost me at NYT ResignNowTrump

Trump Wasn’t Briefed on Russian Bounty Intelligence Because It Wasn’t Verified, White House SaysPresident Trump and Vice President Pence weren’t told about intelligence showing Russia paid bounties to Afghan militants to attack U.S. forces because the intelligence community and security officials hadn’t reached a consensus about its veracity, the White House press secretary said. Raw intel that was clearly leaked in order to further a political goal. Likely endangering lives in the process. Quit carrying his water... British, German and French IC confirmed... Liars😜

White House Press Secretary Defends Trump Sharing 'White Power' VideoKayleigh McEnany said Trump shared the video for his 'demonized' supporters and claimed the president somehow 'did not hear' the white supremacist slogan. Very 'convenient' how the staff around Trump spend their days excusing Trump's short-comings, fabrications, and failures with less and less creative lies. And, Kayleigh McEnany asserted the NYT & WaPo ”should return their Pulitzers!” If only Trump would withdraw his presidency for saying; in April, when it gets warm — historically, that has been able to kill the virus, and the 15 cases will soon be zero

White House Press Secretary Defends Trump Sharing 'White Power' VideoKayleigh McEnany said Trump shared the video for his 'demonized' supporters and claimed the president somehow 'did not hear' the white supremacist slogan. They aren’t Demonized......they are absolutely some of the stupidest racists and bigots on the planet!! Protect statues, but let troops get murdered. The president is more worried about playing golf all weekend. Instead of being a leader, he lies to the people. He doesn’t care about the 127000 plus dead Americans, that he could have saved . He’s a racist. He needs to be removed.

Trump, White House yet to condemn 'white power' video he retweetedMore than 24 hours after Pres. Trump retweeted a video of a supporter shouting 'white power,' he still has not condemned the use of the term, distanced himself from the supporter or apologized for sharing it. Because he's not sorry. K It was obviously a mistake get over it ABC

White House briefs Republicans on Russian bountiesJournalists grilled the White House over a report saying Trump was told that Russians were paying Afghan militants to assassinate U.S. soldiers but took no action. Pelosi wants the administration to brief lawmakers on the allegations I'll never stop being amazed at the number of educated people willing to lie and obfuscate for such a soulless, makeup-smeared lump of flesh in lifts. Kayleigh has to keep checking the tab marked “treason” to get the answer.

AP sources: White House aware of Russian bounties in 2019The White House was aware in early 2019 of intelligence indicating Russia was secretly offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans. That’s a full year earlier than has been previously reported. Russia if you’re listening OMFG😤😡🤬😢
