A piece from the NY Times accuses Russians of placing bounties on the heads of American soldiers. The White House denies knowing anything about it. Rep. Liz Cheney wants more information proving they didn’t know. Can they prove a negative/

However, they claimed, the White House has not authorized any, according to the Times.

The White House and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence pushed back on the Times report in separate statements on Saturday. In a tweet shared Sunday, Trump also fiercely denied receiving an intelligence briefing on Russian bounties.

Trump’s supporters also didn’t let up and made note of Joe using the “n” word in derogatory fashion years ago:
