Kayleigh McEnany slaps down the New York Times over report of Russian bounties on US troops?
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany fired back at the New York Times over a bombshell report that Russia paid bounties to the Taliban to target and kill U.S. troops.
Critics of President Donald Trump pounced on the report to criticize him for either not knowing about the Russian scheme, or not doing anything about it.
The president addressed the controversy in a tweet on Sunday and denied the allegations.
"Intel just reported to me that they did not find this info credible, and therefore did not report it to me or @VP. Possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News @nytimesbooks, wanting to make Republicans look bad!!!" the president tweeted.
America loves Trump- why do Democrats hate USA?

As with everyone in the Trump administration, Kayleigh MacEnany lies to cover Trump's incompetence .. or worse his treason.
=== Blame anything you want on the NY Times, she lies for Trump, because Trump is a scumbag that lies every day.

Trouble is, McEnema's denials contradict each other! First she said Trump was never briefed on the bounties; then she switched to claiming the bounties aren't "fully verified". Since WHEN did lack of full verification of a claim prevent Trump from basing policy on it?
