    He should have  resigned immediately, or been forced out.

    Given the years American "Republicans" spent "investigating" the Benghazi attacks I'm wondering why they are so deafeningly silent as far as Trump knowing Russia put bounties on American troops?

    Which is more evil? Being complicit with Putin to kill American troops, or killing 150,000 Americans due to ignorance, incompetence and the malignant narcissism of rampant Re-election fanatism.

    If you think the Taliban would ACCEPT bounties from Putin or would NEED then to kill US military, you wouldn't understand the answer.

    Note: TWO members on the US military have been killed in Afghanistan  during the time the bounties where allegedly paid.

    How does it feel that even you have no source information on this? That the signs already stink of a troll? You say, but the thing with politicians. Are they not the ones who state who lives or dies? Isn't that part of their responsibilities or are we just mad because we don't like this truth?

    Bounties have been going on from the start of this war. I do not doubt that these reports touch on the truth. It is not the first time these types from Russia have surfaced, going back into the last administration. If one looks hard enough, they can probably find something similar coming out of NK, China, and Iran, not to mention private contractors/companies. It is a war zone, complete with our own deck of cards targeting individuals. What I am curious about, is what does the media and the left, who are pushing this like it is something within Trumps control. What do they/you suggest we do in response?

    There's so much disinformation and false information flying around right now.

    Best to sit back and wait for a few days and the truth will probably all come out.

    But at the end of the day, it barely matters. Those who love Trump will still love him even if it's proven to be true. Those who hate Trump will still hate him even if it's proven to be false.

    And life in the American zoo goes on as normal.

    Well, we don't know whether he saw the briefing. Some intelligence officials are pretty adamant that the information was included in his written briefing of February 27, but we all know that Donnie doesn't like to read and prefers oral briefings. He may not have seen the written briefing.

    He is also known for often being dismissive of information he's given in oral briefings.  But whether he was told in an oral OR a written briefing and blew it off, that is quite serious.  It's impossible for us to say whether these "bounties" really were offered (and if they were, whether this was an official Kremlin operation or perhaps just some casual rogue operation that someone got wind of), but even if Trump was skeptical, the matter should definitely have been seriously investigated.

    I'm somewhat skeptical myself -- and I'm a liberal Democrat -- and incline more towards the "rogue operation" explanation if the bounties were offered at all, but totally ignoring the information would have been incredibly irresponsible and flat-out stupid.  This is something you just don't ignore, no matter what you think of its likely accuracy.

    I'm not a veteran, but I do know some.  I haven't had a chance to discuss the matter with them.
