    I dont know what the tweet is supposed to mean about Ratcliffe lying. His statement was Saturday and hasn't changed

    My guess is if he is telling the truth then intelligence may not have briefed the White House because it may not have been sure about the accusation.

    There is an easy way to expedite getting to the truth. NYTs sources should give a date of the alleged briefing

    Well now we know what the White House would not approve being included in John Bolton's book. This is insanely bad, and every spin the White House tries to take to make them look better, ends up making everyone there (Trump especially) that much worse.

    My guess is it was included in the briefing notes, and might have been brought up in some way, but my guess is when briefed those White House NSA officials purposefully hid this from Trump for fear that he would go to Putin and reveal sources and methods that actually would put our troops more in harms way.

    Otherwise no one would want to end these super popular decades long foreign wars.

    Bro I don't have time for your obsession. Really. I wrote a clear statement. The tweet makes no sense as Ratcliffe hasn't changed his statement
    If you don't have **** to say don't alert me to stupidity as I wasn't even responding to you
    Let go of your obsession

    This makes no sense. The timeline is off. The CIA supposedly was only suspicious in 2019 when a Taliban fighter was found with $500,000

    I think the papers of record now just set this **** up.

    1: basic story with solid reporting.
    2: wait for lame WH attempts at denial, obfuscation.
    3: wait a cycle, for 2 to mutate into something even more pathetic that contradicts 2.
    4: release more detailed reporting about 1, throwing the brightest light on the dishonesty of 2 & 3.

    Does Trump have to know the meaning of obfuscate to be capable of doing it?

    for the education of the easily B@ffled


    the Trump WH is treating this as a public relations problem, not a USA national security problem.

    thinking aloud,
    why the F is the traitor the POTUS

    one of the reasons that Trump may not had been briefed could have been that
    his advisers were afraid of what Trump would do w the intel info,
    such as relaying the info to his handler Putin​

    Saying I believe isn't any admission and he has nothing to admit

    What would he know? Just post your tweets without the commentary

    You're completely straight up totally full of ****. You can't quite think in full sentences, I've tried to read your stuff but it just ain't gonna work.

    Best of luck to you.
