Rep. Spanberger on Russian Attempt To Kill U.S. Soldiers: ‘[Trump] Maybe Didn’t Know It … What Are We Going To Do About It?’
SPANBERGER: "It’s highly disappointing. The presidential daily brief is this document that is put together to ensure that the president of the United States and those in his closest circle have the information that is at the highest level of importance related to issues of national security. There is this document. There is also the process of briefing. There’s been lots of reports about how inclined towards his briefing the President is or isn’t, but at the end of the day, he’s the President of the United States, and there are soldiers and Marines overseas who are risking their lives and potentially have a bounty on their head, put there by the Russian government. And the fact that he didn’t take the time to read the document is not an excuse for the fact that — what comes next? That’s my question, what comes next? He maybe didn’t know it. He maybe didn’t read the brief, but now he knows it. Now everyone knows it. What are we going to do about it?"
