The New York Times reported that Trump received a written briefing in February about a Russian military unit that paid bounties to Afghan militants for killing American soldiers. The Associated Press not only confirmed the report but said the administration knew of the plot since 2019.
Fact--Obama does not read his intelligence briefings nor does he get briefed in person by the CIA or DOD. Too busy I guess!

Trump’s claim that he knew nothing about the new allegations also caused this 2013 message to resurface:
Isn't the WORLD tired of hearing President Obama say he knew nothing about anything-time to take responsibility for all of your mistakes!
