You may not remember it but the lamestream media tried to smear President Trump by saying he was hiding the fact that Russians were offering cash to terrorists in Afghanistan to attack Americans.
The president has now declassified documents on a bounty to attack American troops but it isn’t Russia, it’s China. See how fast they bury this story.
Joe Biden doesn’t dare make any moves against China. They will cut him off without a cent. But if her plays ball, who knows what riches will befall him.
Maybe the Big Guy will get a 20% cut from now on.
The lamestream press is calling this unconfirmed, but when the story was about Russia, I don’t recall that phrase being used.
The Trump administration is declassifying as-yet uncorroborated intelligence, recently briefed to President Trump, that indicates China offered to pay non-state actors in Afghanistan to attack American soldiers, two senior administration officials tell Axios.The big picture: The disclosure of this unconfirmed intelligence comes 21 days before the end of Trump’s presidency, after he has vowed to ratchet up pressure on China, and months after news reports indicated that the Russians had secretly offered bounties for Taliban militants to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
** The Chinese embassy in D.C. did not respond to a request for comment. Trump is not believed to have discussed the matter with President Xi Jinping.
** It was not immediately clear whether any members of Congress or President-elect Joe Biden have been briefed, though Biden now has access to the President’s Daily Brief (PDB).
Behind the scenes: The intelligence was included in the president’s briefing on Dec. 17, and Trump was verbally briefed on the matter by National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien
It has been rumored that Trump plans on cracking down on China before he leaves office.
If that is true then this is the precursor to that plan.
Once put in place it would make it harder for Biden to give China some sweetheart deals. Not impossible but definitely harder.
It’s unclear if any other members of Congress or President-elect Joe Biden have been briefed on the matter, but Biden does have access to Trump’s daily briefings even though he lies and claims he doesn’t.
