You may have heard reports about Russian bounties on American soldiers.
The media is trying to pin this on Trump, naturally. Yet new reports indicate that Adam Schiff knew about this as far back as February.
Do you remember what Schiff was trying to do in February? He was pretty focused on nothing but impeaching Trump.
Just the News reports:
House Democrat Schiff had intel back in February of Russian bounties on U.S. soldiers, report
House Intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff saw reports back in February that Russia was purportedly paying Taliban operatives to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan but took no action, according to a news report released as the California Democrat accuses President Trump is downplaying those same reports out of allegiance to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Federalist reported Thursday that “multiple intelligence sources” told the publication that some members of Schiff’s staff “were briefed in February on intelligence about Russia offering the Taliban bounties in Afghanistan,” but that Schiff “took no action in response to the briefing.”
News of the purported arrangement between Russia and the Taliban leaked last week, leading to sharp criticism from U.S. officials. Democrats have slammed Trump in recent days for referring to the allegations as “possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax.” Schiff this week accused Trump of “taking the Kremlin’s side” on the matter.
Here’s more from The Federalist:
Just as Schiff falsely claimed that he and his staff had no interaction with the anti-Trump leaker behind the impeachment push and falsely claimed he was privy to secret evidence of collusion with Russia, Schiff attacked Trump for not taking action in response to the Russian bounty rumors while refusing to disclose that his own office was briefed in February and did nothing in response.
Adam Schiff wasn’t honest about his staff’s interaction with the #impeachment “whistleblower.”
It looks like he’s back to his old political games.
Schiff was briefed on Russian bounties in February, didn’t do anything, and is now blaming the President!https://t.co/FHTSjF5fUp

Adam Schiff's top aides were briefed on Russia bounty suspicions. In February. In Afghanistan. Schiff didn't think it was significant enough to alert colleagues on Intel committee, held no hearings, told no one, did nothing. New from me and @seanmdav https://t.co/oZ4NR6NyvD

Schiff’s obsession with impeachment affected our response to Coronavirus and now this.
How is Schiff still in office?
