A story began circulating in the months leading up to the 2020 election.
It was planted by Democrats and their friends in the media to undermine Trump.
It was another version of the Russia hoax.
This time they claimed American soldiers were having bounties placed on their heads.
A few months before the 2020 Presidential election, politicians, mainstream news outlets, other Democrats pushed a fake story about Russian officials secretly placing bounties on the heads of American soldiers. This has since then been debunked, but that didn’t stop them from pushing the false narrative.National File
Democrats are simply shameless.
They’ll say whatever they have to say to get what they want.
The New York Times has a major role in that.
Here’s the details.
Many Americans recall reports that Russia was placing bounties on the heads of US soldiers, resulting in outcry from pundits and politicians during the 2020 Presidential campaign. Reports suggested that the Russians were paying the Taliban to kill Americans. The New York Times reported “American intelligence officials have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan — including targeting American troops — amid the peace talks to end the long-running war there, according to officials briefed on the matter.”National File
This was all a pack of lies.
Back when we had Kayleigh McEnany as our Press Secretary, she debunked it too.
Here’s the clip.
The NY Times eventually admitted they were wrong.
The New York Times would also admit that the intelligence community assessed “with low to moderate confidence that Russian intelligence officers sought to encourage Taliban attacks against U.S. and coalition personnel in Afghanistan in 2019, and perhaps earlier, including through financial incentives and compensation.” In July, the top general of U.S. Central Command said that he couldn’t “find that there was a causative link” to the intelligence, adding that “there just there wasn’t enough there.”National File
Confidence didn’t matter when it came to damaging Trump.
Liberals love to claim the moral high ground, but they never learn a thing from mistakes like this.
Despite the facts, mainstream news figures and politicians continued to push the false information to the American people. Even Biden White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tweeted “taking a moment to re-up the fact that @realDonaldTrump knew about Russia offering bounties to Taliban to take out US troops in Afghanistan and still defends Putin. his undervaluing contribution of US troops not just horrific–but also dangerous.”National File
The moral of this story is simple.
Don’t listen to Democrats or the New York Times.
