CNN reports the White House was provided with intelligence in early 2019 indicating Russian actors were offering bounties to kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. CNN cited an unnamed source, who said the warning over Russian bounties was also included in the President’s Daily Briefing sometime in the spring of this year. President Trump says he was never briefed on the claim because U.S. intelligence agencies “did not find this info credible.” The Wall Street Journal is reporting the National Security Agency has strongly dissented from the assessment of other intelligence agencies that Russia has paid bounties to kill U.S. soldiers.
