W.H. Press Secretary: The New York Times Erroneously Reported the President Was Briefed on Russian Bounties

‘He was not personally briefed on the the matter’


McENANY: "Look, again, I'm pointing you back to the fact there is no consensus within the intelligence community. And I would also note that for those of you that are always taking 'The New York Times' at their word, they erroneously reported that the President was briefed on this. He was not briefed on this, and neither was the Vice President were. So before buying into a full-fledged narrative from 'The New York Times' that falsely stated something about the President, that you would wait for the facts to come out. Once again, there is no consensus in the intel community and, in fact, there are dissenting opinions from some within it."
