TRUMP RIGHT AGAIN: Story About Russian Bounties On U.S. Troops Exposed As Garbage

You may not recall this story. The useless, evil media repeatedly claimed that Russia had put bounties on U.S. troops and used the story to bash Trump.

It was basically the other Russia scandal, but just like collusion it turned out to be completely false.

Is anyone surprised?

Townhall reports:

Trump Was Right: The Story About Russia Putting Bounties on U.S. Troops Was Bogus

Remember when the New York Times published a story claiming Russia was paying the Taliban to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan? And that President Donald Trump knew about it and did nothing? That story is being walked back by U.S. intelligence officials.

The Daily Beast, which repeatedly pushed this story, has been forced to eat crow:

It was a huge election-time story that prompted cries of treason. But according to a newly disclosed assessment, Donald Trump might have been right to call it a “hoax.”

It was a blockbuster story about Russia’s return to the imperial “Great Game” in Afghanistan. The Kremlin had spread money around the longtime central Asian battlefield for militants to kill remaining U.S. forces. It sparked a massive outcry from Democrats and their #resistance amplifiers about the treasonous Russian puppet in the White House whose admiration for Vladimir Putin had endangered American troops.

But on Thursday, the Biden administration announced that U.S. intelligence only had “low to moderate” confidence in the story after all. Translated from the jargon of spyworld, that means the intelligence agencies have found the story is, at best, unproven—and possibly untrue.

Just another fake news story.

The media’s credibility is gone.
