Another story on Russia. This time allegation is that Russian bounties to Taliban-linked militias resulted in the deaths of US troops, according to American intelligence.
President Trump denies any knowledge of the intelligence, but the New York Times reports Trump was briefed in March. Former Vice President Joe Biden is outraged over intelligence reporitng that Russia is paying bounties on American soldiers.

Donald Trump’s entire presidency has been a gift to Putin, but this is beyond the pale. It’s a betrayal of the most sacred duty we bear as a nation, to protect and equip our troops when we send them into harm’s way. https://t.co/r6DCWowxc4
