Trump was right again! Russian bounty story was another lie

Trump was right again. Last year he said the Russian bounty story was false. That triggered Democrats and the media who were using it to hurt the President’s reputation. Now the intelligence community is admitting it wasn’t credible.

They finally got around to reviewing and revealing it.

Daily Beast remembers the story:

The Kremlin had spread money around the longtime central Asian battlefield for militants to kill remaining U.S. forces. It sparked a massive outcry from Democrats and their #resistance amplifiers about the treasonous Russian puppet in the White House whose admiration for Vladimir Putin had endangered American troops.

But on Thursday, the Biden administration announced that U.S. intelligence only had “low to moderate” confidence in the story after all. Translated from the jargon of spyworld, that means the intelligence agencies have found the story is, at best, unproven—and possibly untrue.

“The United States intelligence community assesses with low to moderate confidence that Russian intelligence officers sought to encourage Taliban attacks U.S. and coalition personnel in Afghanistan in 2019 and perhaps earlier,” a senior administration official said.

According to the officials on Thursday’s call, the reporting about the alleged “bounties” came from “detainee reporting” – raising the specter that someone told their U.S.-aligned Afghan jailers what they thought was necessary to get out of a cage. Specifically, the official cited “information and evidence of connections to criminal agents in Afghanistan and elements of the Russian government” as sources for the intelligence community’s assessment.

Without additional corroboration, such reporting is notoriously unreliable. Detainee reporting from a man known as Ibn Shaikh al-Libi, extracted from torture, infamously and bogusly fueled a Bush administration claim, used to invade Iraq, about Saddam Hussein training al-Qaeda to make poison gas.

Trump said last year that it was bunk. He said it on Twitter but it was censored by the Twitter commies as a false tweet.

It was another leak by hateful leftists in the intel community who wanted to damage Donald Trump before the election. It was one of so many lies, day after day, for four years.

That’s what these commies do. They lie and throw blame elsewhere.
