Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., told “The Faulkner Focus” Friday that intelligence about Russia placing bounties on U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan was “selectively leaked” to the media last year to help the Biden campaign. A senior Biden administration official said Thursday that the intelligence community only had “low to moderate” confidence in the story.
TOM COTTON: Joe Biden owes President Trump an apology. Joe Biden used that line of attack multiple times in the campaign to include in the presidential debate. I remember when it first surfaced last summer, I was open-minded to it, it sounds like something that Vladimir Putin and the Russians would do. But I sit on the Intelligence Committee. I reviewed it carefully, and again, I could not see where these reports in the media were coming from.
