Why Does Trump Put Russia First?
NYT ^ | June 30, 2020 | Susan Rice

Posted on 06/30/2020 9:06:35 PM PDT by upchuck

It’s exceedingly difficult to believe that no one told the president about the intelligence on Russian efforts to harm Americans in Afghanistan.

Since at least February, and possibly as early as March 2019, the United States has had compelling intelligence that a committed adversary, Russia, paid bounties to Taliban-linked fighters to kill American troops in Afghanistan. American service members were reportedly killed as a result.

To this day, the president of the United States has done nothing about it.

Instead, President Trump dismissed the intelligence as not “credible” and “possibly another fabricated Russia hoax, maybe by the Fake News” that is “wanting to make Republicans look bad!!!”

Mr. Trump also claimed that neither he nor Vice President Mike Pence was ever told about this critical intelligence before it was first reported in The New York Times. Setting aside for a moment the credulity of that claim, whenever the president learned of this deeply troubling intelligence, why did he not publicly condemn any Russian efforts to kill American soldiers and explore options for a swift and significant U.S. response?

None of this adds up.

As a former national security adviser, I find it exceedingly difficult to believe that no one told Mr. Trump about this intelligence.

It was reportedly contained in the president’s daily briefing, which is provided to all top-level national security officials.

Well, here’s an excellent opportunity, Ms Rice. Please name ONE Taliban leader who would meet secretly with Russians and believe anything they have to say, much less fail to kill them by the end of the meeting...

Just one.

Susan Rice-cake fails to realize that China is the greater threat.

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend” so now our friend MUST be Russia.

Not to mention that Vladimir Putin is positioning himself to be the new Byzantine Emperor...500+ years overdue!

No one told President Trump about intelligence on Russia? Hahahahaha

Is Susan Rice in jail yet? Was the withholding of Russian meddling withheld from candidate Trump/President-Elect Trump/President Trump and was it by the book?

Who told President Trump about Obama and Rice spying on the campaign of Donald Trump???? Was it by the book?

Is Putin a racist or something? Why do the American communists hate Putin so much? There’s gotta be a story there.

Indeed , how can we take this woman seriously? She thinks the Benghazi attack was caused by a video on the internet which no one saw. With her incredible lack of judgment and lack of knowledge, how can we take her criticisms here seriously?

Says Susie, after her boss gave literally tons of cash to a known enemy, Iran, which was paying Muslim radicals to kill American soldiers in the Middle East. That evidence was so confirmed that Pres. Trump ended up killing a bunch of Iranians, as well as the jihadis.

Susan Rice wasn’t privy to Trump’s briefings. Plus the Pentagon has already disputed this latest hit piece.
