They are trying to take Donald Trump down, this group of brilliant Republicans. These current and former members of the Grand Old Party (GOP) do not support Trumpism, which is what much of their old party has morphed into. Unlike so many, The Lincoln Project has been turning its words into action..

In just 59 seconds, The Lincoln Project turned The New York Times (NYT) article into an ad exposing Trump for ignoring his friend Russia’s President Vladimir Putin’s crime. It appeared that Putin put a bounty on American soldiers serving in Afghanistan, and POTUS did nothing:

The NYT reported that the White House was trying to decide what to do:

In the NYT article, Russia Secretly Offered Afghan Militants Bounties to Kill U.S. Troops, Intelligence Says the president and his administration have been considering what to do about Putin’s bounty on American soldiers. ‘

Trump knew about the secret Russian bounties:

‘American intelligence officials have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan — including targeting American troops — amid the peace talks to end the long-running war there, according to officials briefed on the matter.’

Putin was trying to “destabilize the west or take revenge on turncoats:”

‘The United States concluded months ago that the Russian unit, which has been linked to assassination attempts and other covert operations in Europe intended to destabilize the West or take revenge on turncoats, had covertly offered rewards for successful attacks last year.’

It appeared that “Islamist militants” collected on their bounties:

‘Islamist militants, or armed criminal elements closely associated with them, are believed to have collected some bounty money, the officials said. Twenty Americans were killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2019, but it was not clear which killings were under suspicion.’

Of course, Trump had been briefed:

‘The intelligence finding was briefed to President Trump, and the White House’s National Security Council discussed the problem at an interagency meeting in late March, the officials said. Officials developed a menu of potential options — starting with making a diplomatic complaint to Moscow and a demand that it stop, along with an escalating series of sanctions and other possible responses, but the White House has yet to authorize any step, the officials said.’

Twitter world caught fire. Take a look at what Americans said about Trump’s actions or inactions:
