Trump was offered a menu of options to respond to Russian bounty on US troops. Instead Trump wanted to reward Russia with admittance into the G-7.

Dear Editor:
In late May of this year The National Security Agency accused the Russian government of hacking email servers around the world. Despite the fact that this is The United States National Security Agency Mr. Trump “renewed his baseless claims that the investigation into Russia’s activities was part of a ‘hoax’ intended by Democrats to paralyze him (NYT May 29 2020).” According to the NYT 6/27/20: “The United States concluded months ago that the Russian unit, which has been linked to assassination attempts and other covert operations in Europe intended to destabilize the West or take revenge on turncoats, had covertly offered rewards for successful attacks last year.”

We now know that President Trump was warned in February that Russia was paying Afghanistan Taliban to kill coalition forces including American. The intelligence was solid enough to be shared across the intelligence community and with allies, according to the New York Times 6/30/20. Mr. Trump was offered a menu of options to respond to Russian actions but instead Mr. Trump want to reward Russia with admittance into the G-7. While U.S. intelligence is warning about Russian cyber attacks and now an operation to incentive the killing of American troops Mr. Trump does nothing. Mr. Trump’s actions call into question his competence and/or his loyalties.

  • There you go again Jamie… just because the Times reports something does not mean it’s true. I can’t the number of situations where I was on the scene of Criminal Investigations and reports from the NY Times ,Post and Daily News were wrong… made stuff up. The closest was always the old NY Post. On what you are reporting as fact is your ignorant opinion and NOT fact. The NSA Director was on FOX YESTERDAY and said he was at all the briefings and the President was not briefed on what you say because they, the 16 Security Agencies had not been able to verify the “bounty for American Soldiers” rumor. He said they cannot past rumors at briefings because the President could act on the rumor…just like your party acted on the unverified and salacious Steele Dossier and used it to obtain a FISA wiretap…wiretaps on Carter Page and the Republican Committee…another Watergate type matter with your party doing the wiretaps!
