USA: Trump only briefed on verified intel. — WH denies president being informed about alleged Russia bounty intel.

US President Donald Trump was not briefed on intelligence allegedly showing Russia offering bounties to Taliban-linked groups for targeting the US and coalition military forces, as the White House press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany told the press in Washington DC, Monday. The press secretary repeatedly denied the president being briefed on the case, by saying, «The president is briefed on verified intelligence. And again, I would just point you back to the absolutely irresponsible decision of The New York Times to falsely report that he was briefed on something that he, in fact, was not briefed on.» She stressed that as there was no consensus on the data, Trump had not been briefed on the case. The New York Times published a report on Friday, assuming that Donald Trump had been informed about alleged Russian attempts to offer bounties to the Taliban-linked groups for targeting the coalition forces in Afghanistan.
