Earlier this evening we got confirmation that the Russian bounty scandal was in Donald Trump’s daily briefing back in the spring of 2020, all but confirming that Trump was lying this weekend when he said he didn’t know about it. Now things have gotten even worse – much, much worse.
It turns out Donald Trump actually knew about it in the spring of 2019. The AP is reporting late tonight that John Bolton has told colleagues that he personally briefed Trump about the scandal roughly fifteen months ago, and that the sole purpose of the meeting was to brief Trump about it.
This confirms that Trump is lying about not having known about the scandal. It also means that he sat on his hands for more than a year and allowed Russia to pay terrorists to murder U.S. soldiers. This puts Trump deep into treason territory. It also potentially puts him on the hook for conspiracy to commit homicide.
