Americans Outraged Over Trump Betraying American Soldiers in Russia-Bounty Bombshell, ‘He is a Grotesque and Vile Man!’
It may seem ridiculous to say but we might be looking at Trump’s last two weeks in office. Before anyone scoffs, it is recommended that one look at the seriousness of what is coming out from the New York Times (below), regarding the Russians paying the Taliban to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan (19 U.S. soldiers were killed in 2019), reports that Trump knew about the program in March of this year, in the time since, Trump invited the Russians back into the G8, while doing nothing about the program, all of it is happening while the SCOTUS case concerning Trump’s taxes is due this week or next and Trump’s approval ratings hit bottom amid COVID’s return and BLM.
There is a scenario whereby the SCOTUS decides that Trump must hand his tax returns to Congress and-or the NY State Attorney General, with Trump fighting such an order. Any time Trump’s taxes are in the news, talk turns to why he is so resistant to turning them over. Speculation always runs to financial entanglements with Russia. This time, that attention will come while Americans learn more about the troops in harm’s way that Trump failed to protect from Russian-hired fire. It will look to all the world like Trump refused to confront Putin about killing Americans because Trump has business in Russia. (More Below).
It looks like Trump allowed Russians to put American lives up for sale out of fear of crossing Putin.
Putin put contracts on American soldiers. He paid bounties for dead American soldiers and Trump did nothing. This is a low moment unequaled in all of our history. This President won’t defend America. He is a grotesque and vile man. He is the weakest and worst President ever

All of that comes out in the environment where the nation is suffering from all-time COVID highs. Trump poll ratings had already gone to the high 30s, with a 14 point spread between him and Biden. What if Trump goes to 34% approval and an 18 point spread between him and Biden?
There is a scenario whereby Trump doesn’t survive as president through July, possibly the next two weeks. This isn’t a good thing, necessarily. Trump is the most easily defeated Republican right now and he wouldn’t leave without a pardon from Pence.
This is the White House’s first response, which no one is believing. But notice that they aren’t denying the bounties:
JUST IN – @PressSec says neither Trump nor Pence were briefed on the "alleged Russian bounty intelligence" first reported by NYT

Twitter is aghast about the new revelations:

You know the system. Ambassador, military and intelligence officers in Kabul would know. Allies would know. Secretary of State would know. National Security Advisor would know. Intelligence would immediately be sent to the NSC and all relevant officials. This is BS. https://t.co/Ov4h1CxF16

Yes. Listen to Michael McFaul.
Europeans confirm the plot:
European intel official confirms thr NYT report stating that the Russian plot to kill coalition troops resulted in casualties.
What traitors Trump and his regime are https://t.co/hwLhA71Lei

There are only 3 possibilities here: It was in the PDB or briefed to him but he didn’t bother to read or listen; the NSC/CIA deliberately kept it from him; or he knew and didn’t care because he wants to have a “good relationship” with a murderous autocrat.
Pick your poison.

Impeachment again? Only this time there would be evidence.
This is the most impeachable offense of his presidency. He doesn’t care about American lives at home or abroad. https://t.co/80zeXfHtdl

Yesterday the @nytimes reported, and Wash Post & WSJ confirmed, the explosive story that (1) Russia paid bounties for militants to kill US troops in Afghanistan & (2)@realDonaldTrump knew but did nothing.

We will see what happens.
Right now, it would seem to be 50-50 that Trump is in office as president two weeks from today.
