Intelligence on Russian bounty plot was included in the President's Daily Brief earlier this year, source says


Trump is not known to fully or regularly read the President's Daily Brief, something that is well-known within the White House. The US intelligence community and military are investigating to see if there is further corroboration, and if the National Security Council staff can recommend response options. The source said the White House is now claiming the leak will ruin the opportunity to get a real answer. There is "no consensus within the intelligence community" about whether Russia offered to pay bounties to the Taliban for killing American troops, McEnany said. There is "dissent" within the intelligence community about the intelligence, which she insisted had not reached Trump's desk because "it wasn't verified."
