Jim Banks: New York Times Damaged National Security to Hurt Trump regarding the Russia offering bounties to kill Americans in Afghanistan story
Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) said in a statement on Monday that the New York Times is willing to do “anything” to hurt President Donald Trump, including compromising national security.
The New York Times reported on Saturday that a Russian military spy unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militias for killing U.S. troops in Afghanistan.Banks, a military veteran, said that “having served in Afghanistan during the time the alleged bounties were placed, no one is angrier about this than me.”
However, the Hoosier conservative said that the federal government could not complete the investigation due to the Times story.
