Lawmakers want answers from Pentagon, White House on reported Russian bounties

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — Leaders on the Senate and House Armed Services Committees said Monday that they want answers from the Pentagon and White House about reports that a Russian military intelligence group had paid bounties to kill American troops in Afghanistan.

“We need to get to the bottom of it and we need to do it now. Again, this week before Congress leaves on the Fourth of July,” Rep. Mac Thornberry of Texas, the ranking Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, told reporters Monday morning during a Defense Writers Group conference call. https://www.stripes.com/news/middle-east/lawmakers-want-answers-from-pentagon-white-house-on-reported-russian-bounties-1.635568
