AP sources: White House aware of Russian bounties in 2019

Top officials in the White House were aware in early 2019 of classified intelligence indicating Russia was secretly offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans, a full year earlier than has been previously reported, according to U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the intelligence.

The assessment was included in at least one of President Donald Trump’s written daily intelligence briefings at the time, according to the officials. Then-national security adviser John Bolton also told colleagues he briefed Trump on the intelligence assessment in March 2019.

Trump Got Written Briefing in February on Possible Russian Bounties, Officials Say

But that stance clashed with the disclosure by two officials that the intelligence was included months ago in Mr. Trump’s President’s Daily Brief document — a compilation of the government’s latest secrets and best insights about foreign policy and national security that is prepared for him to read. One of the officials said the item appeared in Mr. Trump’s brief in late February; the other cited Feb. 27, specifically.

Medicaid Expansion Wins In Red State Oklahoma

The vote to expand Medicaid in Oklahoma to nearly 200,000 people in the state comes as cases of the coronavirus strain Covid-19 surge and some worried that the pandemic and risk of infection hampered turnout in a state that has seen thousands lose their jobs and healthcare coverage. Medicaid expansion is expected to enable more Oklahomans to become eligible for such health coverage as unemployment rises and people lose their employer-based health benefits.
