Russian bounties: RUMINT and the Democrat Mushroom

Once again, democrats in congress have gone nuts trying to attack Trump over any unfavorable datum uncovered. The intel leaked that Russia was paying bounties of US soldiers is RUMIT only. RUMIT is rumor intelligence. Brad Johnson, former CIA Chief of Station and President of Americans for Intelligence Reform, weighs in based on his experience.

Brad Johnson July 2 2020 and there was a
00:03
significant briefing by various top
00:07
intelligence agencies of Congress what
00:09
was the substance of that please yeah
00:12
it’s an interesting thing the director
00:15
of NSA and the director of CIA are
00:17
scheduled today to give a briefing to
00:20
the gang of eight as it’s known the
00:22
congressional heads of the Intelligence
00:24
Committee and those those people there
00:27
so the gang of eight as its that testing
00:32
used for those people in the news and
00:34
all of that so what they’re doing is
00:36
they’re they the Congress demanded a
00:39
brief directly from the Intelligence
00:41
Agency’s NSA and CIA in this case to
00:44
discuss with them what is this
00:46
information on that’s the Russian bounty
00:49
on troops in Afghanistan so that’s going
00:53
to be the nature of the briefing now
00:56
interesting that that’s what they’ve
00:58
done on the left what you’re going to do
01:00
is see the Democrats use this
01:03
politically as they used everything in
01:06
the past for these sorts of things and
01:07
make no mistakes I can tell you exactly
01:09
what’s going to be briefed now I don’t
01:11
have the inside track on this but I just
01:13
based on so much experience these things
01:15
I can tell you exactly what happened
01:17
there’s an unconfirmed report out there
01:19
that Russian Russians were paying a
01:21
bounty to Taliban to shoot Americans and
01:24
for every American shot they’d pay him
01:26
some unknown amount of money now that’s
01:29
unlikely to be precisely the truth I
01:32
don’t doubt that there was a report on
01:33
it but people see different things and
01:36
and they kind of come to conclusions
01:37
that aren’t necessarily true so even
01:40
though it may be reported by someone
01:42
who’s thinks there’s you know providing
01:45
information in good faith it doesn’t
01:46
make it true necessarily and it makes no
01:49
sense in the scheme of things that’s not
01:51
how stuff is done the way that it would
01:53
that these things work is the Russians
01:55
would provide guns and ammunition and
01:58
sniper rifles and explosives and all the
02:01
things that the Taliban would need to
02:03
operate in the way that they operate
02:04
they would just be supplying those
02:06
things money to buy it and those
02:07
materials to do these acts which by the
02:10
way Iran is
02:12
the same thing and they’ve been doing it
02:13
even more so I wouldn’t be surprised to
02:16
chimes doing and the bad guys of the
02:18
world North Korea China Russia Turkey
02:21
all of those guys are doing this sort of
02:24
thing and so to single out Russia is
02:27
okay there was that report on it but you
02:30
know it’s just you’re you’re you’re it’s
02:33
a lie of omission to target only Russia
02:36
when you talk about these things and to
02:39
ignore Iran for example is you know
02:41
pretty pretty out there you just you
02:44
cannot they’re Iran is doing this as
02:46
much of more than anybody so Russia also
02:49
does it – that’s not forget this that’s
02:52
kind of the way the ball game works when
02:54
Russia was took over invaded Afghanistan
02:57
the resistance in many ways was supplied
03:00
by the United States to conduct war
03:02
against the Russians that is covert
03:04
action these are all covert action
03:06
programs so why would you pay about so
03:08
as I say it’s very unlikely that that’s
03:10
true in a precise way why would she I
03:13
mean what do they gain by paying a
03:16
bounty the Russians and it’s nothing
03:18
because just by supplying the materials
03:20
to the Taliban them tell events already
03:22
gonna go out and do what they’re gonna
03:23
do so a bounty serves no particular
03:25
purpose they’d already give them enough
03:27
money and guns and ammunition to do
03:29
whatever it is that the Taliban were
03:31
capable of doing to begin with so I just
03:34
I think that aspect of it’s a
03:35
non-starter
03:36
I don’t doubt somebody reported it but
03:38
you know it’s one of those things and
03:40
that’s why it wasn’t reported up to the
03:42
president he didn’t give up wasn’t given
03:44
it direct briefing on it now you know
03:46
hindsight me what it is probably they
03:50
should have briefed him on it and they
03:52
did not now that’s that decision has
03:54
gotten a lot of backing you know on pure
03:56
intelligence the pure intelligence value
03:59
of it yes that that’s not you wouldn’t
04:01
briefed that stuff because it’s you know
04:03
there’s a human’s human intelligence
04:05
against signals intelligence and what we
04:08
in the business call room int rumors
04:10
intelligence and this falls out of that
04:12
category this is room int it’s not hard
04:14
facts and all of that so wouldn’t
04:16
necessarily be something to brief the
04:18
president the United States on however
04:20
the political implications in today’s
04:23
world meaning that the
04:24
probably should have been made aware so
04:26
intelligence wise correct decision was
04:28
made politically wise the wrong decision
04:30
was made on not briefing the president
04:32
and now what we’re seeing as a result is
04:35
that the this is going to be used as a
04:40
bat to beat up the president with by the
04:42
left and it’s unjustified it’s it’s all
04:45
you know could be filed under craap it’s
04:48
it’s the same old stuff the Ukraine
04:51
phone call the impeachment the Muller
04:54
investigation all of these things are
04:56
essentially baseless or they take some
04:58
little minor fact and twist it in some
05:01
way to criticize the president so that’s
05:03
the entire basis of what’s happening
05:04
here and this briefing that’s going to
05:06
come out of the NSA and CIA to the gang
05:09
of eight Congress is going to be almost
05:11
precisely that that this is
05:13
uncooperative information you can’t
05:16
entrust it and don’t know it is a fact
05:17
and and probably it’s not true and that
05:23
is is going to be essentially the end of
05:26
it as far as the facts go but this is
05:28
going to be carried on the left is going
05:30
to use it the Democrats and the gang of
05:31
eight are going to use this to criticize
05:33
President Trump but that’s all it is
05:35
it’s the same old game plan being played
05:37
out with just a new little data point
05:39
that they can use to criticize and this
05:42
is what we’re going to be faced with
05:43
from now to November elections is this
05:45
just unending made-up crapola that they
05:48
want to use to criticize President Trump
05:51
yeah see the Democrat mushroom factory
05:55
thank you very much there Brad Johnson
05:58
that roommate I like that I’ll remember
06:00
that
06:08
you
