Trump's Buddy/Boss Is Paying People to Kill Americans

American intelligence officials have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan — including targeting American troops — amid the peace talks to end the long-running war there, according to officials briefed on the matter.

The United States concluded months ago that the Russian unit, which has been linked to assassination attempts and other covert operations in Europe intended to destabilize the West or take revenge on turncoats, had covertly offered rewards for successful attacks last year.
...
The intelligence finding was briefed to President Trump, and the White House’s National Security Council discussed the problem at an interagency meeting in late March, the officials said. Officials developed a menu of potential options — starting with making a diplomatic complaint to Moscow and a demand that it stop, along with an escalating series of sanctions and other possible responses, but the White House has yet to authorize any step, the officials said.
Of course Trump isn't going to do anything. Putin is, in essence, Trump's boss. Almost everything that Trump does with regard to foreign affairs can be predicted by asking yourself "what benefits Russia?" That's what Trump will do.

So Trump will do nothing about this.

(And neither will Moscow Mitch.)

So what did he do instead? Tried to get Russia back into the G7, proposed withdrawing a big chunk of our troops from Germany, and made vague noises about withdrawing from Afghanistan wholesale.
Point this out to his fans and they will accuse you of wanting to go to war with Russia, or at least that's what happened to me.
I know this isn't news to anyone, but I'm really getting sick of this punk.

Founding fathers anticipated treason. They never anticipated that half the government would refuse to prosecute a guy openly committing treason. Because it would make their next election campaign go better.
