Donald Trump, by now, must have a rubber stamp that says I Wasn't Told. His latest I Wasn't Told excuse is about Russia paying Taliban terrorists a sum of money or a bounty if they were to kill American or Allied soldiers in Afghanistan.
I Wasn't Told!
Among the various coverups from the White House are: Lower level fledglings (who have the judgment and authority of Solomon) didn’t believe the intelligence was valid, and did not pass it on to the higher-ups. That excuse is just plain mashed potatoes.
A second excuse is that Trump doesn’t like to hear bad news. That excuse is, Don’t wake the baby!
A third excuse is that Trump doesn’t want to hear anything negative about Russia and his pal, Putin. The same guy who fixed his election. And the same guy who has that video of Trump taken at the Moscow Ritz Carlton Hotel.
Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, aging daily on the job, and earning every single penny she’s paid, announced that intelligence officials decided to keep the bounty payment allegations below Trump’s level until they were verified.
That's the King Solomon defense repeated. And she managed to say it with a straight face! Who verifies the Intelligence?
According to The New York Times and Washington Post, Trump was aware of the bounty practice since early this year, but never acted in response.
Well, you know, playing golf, tweeting, eating hamburgers and chocolate cake takes up a lot of Donald Trump’s time. Remember, he was only a talk show host, like Ryan Seacrest.
Nancy Pelosi isn’t having any of it. “The administration’s disturbing inaction endangers the lives of our troops and our coalition partners.”
She wants answers!
