Nancy Pelosi calls on intelligence officials to brief Congress about Russian bounty claims

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is always roving for new material to attack Trump with, even as Democrat stall critical police reform proposals and ignore the economic fallout from the coronavirus crisis.

On Monday, Pelosi made her move to begin an investigation into the claims that the Russian government offered bounties to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan last year. Though the reports are tenuously supported, Democrats are already talking impeachment. 

The New York Times released a report on Friday detailing claims from US intelligence officials that The New York Times, that a Russian military intelligence agency offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill US forces in Afghanistan during the time that the Trump administration was attempting to facilitate peace talks to end the decades-long war.

The Washington Post reported on Saturday that the bounties had resulted in the deaths of several U.S. troops in Afghanistan during the same time frame.

President Trump and the White House denied that the report was accurate on Saturday. White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany announced that Trump will hold a press briefing on Monday to clear up confusion about the conflicting reports.

Pelosi doesn’t want to wait for the actual truth to come out though, so she’s pulled the trigger on requesting two top U.S. intelligence leaders to appear before the House for a briefing on the matter. Pelosi told Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe in her letter of request that “Congress and the country need answers now.”

“The Administration’s disturbing silence and inaction endanger the lives of our troops and our coalition partners,” Pelosi continued in her request. “The questions that arise are: was the President briefed, and if not, why not, and why was Congress not briefed … I therefore request an interagency brief for all House Members immediately.”

Though Trump is expected to hold a press briefing to answer more in-depth questions about the report, he also responded to it on Sunday evening via Twitter. “Intel just reported to me that they did not find this info credible, and therefore did not report it to me,” Trump said in a tweet directed at Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who also demanded answers.

“Possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News @nytimesbooks, wanting to make Republicans look bad,” Trump concluded.

Ruben it’s because your parents taught you that as did mine. The same people have whined for years there victims but those of us who worked hard get rewarded. The Democrats give them enough of the cookie to last for four years there silent until an election comes. These people still vote for them. Pray they finally wake up and see the truth. I was a family of twelve that my parents worked hard to feed us and put God in our lives, that’s what is missing today. The education system has brainwashed kids into thinking everything is America’s fault. All we can do is move on and hope eventually they wake up. God bless

How can a party listen to an Alcoholic that is drunk by 9AM and not fully alert and in a blackout while trying to work and her socialist staff is doing all the mayhem.
She spent a total of over 1 1/2 yrs. in Betty Ford clinic unsuccessful to say the least since she keeps full bars in her office and on government planes at taxpayers expense.

If Pelosi, and the rest of the Demonrats weren’t so concentrated on their witch hunts, they’d have more time to murder American citizens, and destroy our constitutional rights, as they’ve been doing ever since the party came into existence. They’ve promoted Fascism, slavery, racial prejudice, and racial baiting. They created the KKK, and the Jim Crow laws. They’ve been opposing any and all Christian values and beliefs, and imposing immoral laws and organizations on the country throughout our history. So we can thank god for their insane attacks on Trump, as it keeps them distracted from doing more harm to our country.

Nancy Pelosi and all of her colleagues have committed treason. They took an OATH to uphold the Constitution of the United States and to serve We The People. They have not, are not and will not uphold or serve. They should be removed from office and never allowed to hold office or to perform any service in The United States.

Pelosi doesn’t show any signs of common sense and even less signs of college education. However, she seems to
fit right in with the group she is butchering the US Constitution with. Her biggest problem is the extreme hatred
she uses against any one with love and cooperation of our country. She can’t compete with a 2nd grade school student for intelligence. I would hope that even Democrats see the problem and vote for other than her.

Nancy believes she is the President,, Queen or some great authority!
She is a figment of her own imagination!
If our country needs such a drastic change, it stands to reason the
Law makers also need changing!
They’re like dirty underwear!
Can you imagine how wonderful to have Trump for 4 more years
without the same one track vindictive minds!

My thoughts are maybe, Russia told President Trump that the Democrats paid for the Hits on the USA Troops. So if they would not shoot the Troops and Instead Shoot the Democrats, that we as Americans would Allow the Hits, without holding them Accountable. That is TRULY What I Wish, was True. You know the Saying, The Only Good Democrat, Is A DEAD Democrat.

Pelosi likes investigation, I think it time we gave one…..of her own.
She has violated her oat to protect the constitution and the people.
She supports the BLM mob communist, who want to tare down our great country.
She supports the communist group Anti Fa, both are Russian backed groups.
She willing wants to destroy the country’s economy, to make all of us slaves
She is a trader to the people, to the country, and to her oath.

“The Administration’s disturbing silence and inaction endanger the lives of our troops and our coalition partners,” Pelosi continued in her request. “The questions that arise are: was the President briefed, and if not, why not, and why was Congress not briefed … I therefore request an interagency brief for all House Members immediately.”

Shouldn’t the alleged “bounties” be verified before demanding answers? So far at least, there has not anything to corroborate this latest outrage. rather than querying intelligence agencies not briefing the president or Congress or, whatever, other than the Trump deranged NY Times story. This whole thing is starting to smell bad – sort of like another Democrat initiated attempt to discredit Pres. Trump – again.

Pelosi and her group of dems need to be out of office. Shame on all of them. They are trying to destroy our great country. They need to be elected out of office at once. They are upset as our Country now has a Great President that is going to work hard for our Country and its Citizens and make us all Great again!!
