I just watched the guy who was Obama's intelligence briefer. Its been reported several times, in the last 3 years, that Trump does not read any reports and is only briefed once a week (most of the time). Obama's guy said he briefed Obama first thing in the morning and also at the end of the day.

Trump, however, gets his intelligence from a variety of sources; ie. conspiracy theorists, purveyors of baloney, etc. just for starters.

Trump can only have his briefings verbally told to him because he's a functioning illiterate. True story. smile

Lawmakers Press Trump for Answers on Russia Bounty Reports

Now Republiclowns see Trump for the traitor to America that his is...and not during the Ukraine investigation and subsequent Impeachment? Too little, too late.

You people are going down in November and this is no one's fault but your own. smile

I think we are all getting a little tired of the 'Trump is a Moron" defense. If he's too stupid to know about Putin's bounty, he's too stupid to be President.

NYTimes reporter who broke the story on AM Joy today:

...all I’ll say is that is that we have a source who said that this was briefed at the highest levels of the White House.= and we have a second source who says it was in the written Presidential Daily Brief document.

Trump was briefed IN MARCH! He was given a menu of response options. He picked nothing.

Now he had a friendly call with Putin, and wants to let Russia back into the G7. And withdraw some American troops from Germany.

This is treason in my book. I don't know what they have on him, but it must be a doozy. Would anybody do this just for money? I bet Pence was briefed on this as well. They should both be impeached and imprisoned. Senate Republicans: This is your last chance. Impeach them now and some of you might keep your jobs. If you don't, the GOP is finished.

It's treason in any sane, rational person's book - but not to a Righwinger or a Republican. Hmm

The NY Times report better be accurate, or the lash back will be on par with Armageddon. I think it is.
