White House refuses to say if Trump will take action on Russia bounty claims as administration questions their 'veracity '

The White home is questioning the “veracity” folks intelligence reports that Russia offered bounty payments to Taliban forces to kill American military troops in Afghanistan. “There was no consensus within the Intelligence Community ,” press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters of the 16 US intelligence agencies. “There are some dissenting opinions within the Intelligence Community .” “This wasn't briefed up to the president because, in fact, it had been not verified,” she said, declining to mention what, if anything, Donald Trump might neutralize retaliation to the Kremlin, if the intelligence is eventually verified. 

White House refuses to say if Trump

 The ny Times first reported the intelligence reports about the bounty payments, which US forces and commanders in Afghanistan learned about after being tipped off once they found large sums of cash at Taliban-controlled facilities in Afghanistan. 

 Mr Trump tweeted over the weekend that he also believes the intelligence has yet to be verified. “Intel just reported to me that they didn't find this info credible, and thus didn't report it to me or @VP. Possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News @nytimesbooks, eager to make Republicans look bad!!!” he wrote, using the incorrect handle for the newspaper’s official Twitter account.

 Ms McEnany said CIA director Gina Haspel, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and Robert O’Brien, Mr Trump’s national security adviser, all have assured her the president wasn't briefed on the alleged bounty payments. The US president has been accused of being too crazy Russia since taking office, with even some senior congressional Democrats accusing him of being possibly compromised by Moscow.

Mr Trump, however, often notes his administration has issued strict sanctions on Russia while also saying he still wants closer relations with Putin , the Russian president. The White House press secretary gave reporters no indication that the president, since the ny Times report was published, has been briefed on the alleged bounty scheme.
