Rep Schiff Knew of Russian Bounty Intelligence in February but Blames Trump

Intelligence Committee Chairman California Democrat Representative Adam Schiff was aware of intelligence about bounties offered by Russia to the Taliban for killing American service members in Afghanistan in February.

Despite knowing about the intelligence, Schiff early on did nothing with it and now he and fellow Democrats are blasting President Trump for not acting against the plot against the U.S. military.

Over the weekend, the allegations were first reported by The New York Times that President Trump was aware but didn’t act on the intelligence but in reality, Schiff withheld the intelligence and didn’t act on it.

The news story generated national headlines and was discussed on television networks.

On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that Vladimir Putin has something on the president, saying, “With him, all roads lead to Putin.”

However, The Federalist did a little digging and found this out:

Schiff, who has acknowledged President Donald Trump was never briefed on the so-called intelligence, has thus far refused to disclose that his staff was personally briefed. The revelation raises serious questions that Schiff is once again politicizing, and perhaps even deliberately misrepresenting, key data for partisan gain.

Regardless of the facts, Democrats went on offense to demand answers from the Trump Administration.

Schiff made the rounds on national television and told MSNBC host Chris Hayes this may be another example of President Trump putting “his personal interests above the nation.”

On MSNBC, Schiff discussed the Russian bounty allegations and told host Rachel Maddow that the president “is mad because it’s being reported.”

Other Democrats criticized President Trump including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

President Trump hit back at The New York Times on social media.

Critics of the Democrats’ latest effort to undermine President Trump responded on social media including Ohio Republican Representative Jim Jordan.

With the presidential election fast approaching, Schiff and his fellow Democrats are desperate by resurrecting the Russian narrative to attack President Trump and mislead Americans.

The Russian bounty story is a case study in the way Democrats and their media allies can drive propaganda across the nation.

By the time the truth sees the light of day, the propaganda has poisoned an untold number of Americans.
