The Fake News label used so frequently by Donald Trump for every dicey situation has educated the public to the point of prompting the public to now say, "Uh-huh, then it must be true!"
Evidence presented from different intelligence agencies about Russian bounty payments to kill American soldiers can't be denied by Trump - unless he was sound asleep during briefings, or just plain didn’t care. Sound asleep or not caring would remain a gross dereliction of duty.

Wait one fat minute. Is the White House or Trump waiting for Rudolph Giuliani to come up with the correct from god to Rudy's ears truth?
The CIA found Bin Laden, not Giuliani, Ivanka, or Sean Hannity.
John Bolton came out of the woodwork to breathe truth to the rumor that, as the White House National Security Advisor, he told Trump about bounty payments back in February of 2019. The same John Bolton who wouldn't say squeak during the Senate Impeachment hearings.
"We're still assessing the information.”
