KELLY’S (DE)TOUR: Will She Demand Accountability from White House on Reported Russian Bounties on US Troops?

July 10, 2020

After Trump called reports on intelligence about Russia placing bounties on US service members a “hoax,” Loeffler still won’t hold the administration accountable for failing to act

ATLANTA — As unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler continues her statewide tour today during a surging coronavirus outbreak, the Democratic Party of Georgia is again calling on her to skip the (de)tour and start answering questions:

Does Loeffler agree with President Donald Trump that reports about Russia placing bounties on US troops are a “hoax,” or will she hold the Trump administration accountable for their lack of action?

Loeffler still has not clearly responded to reports that Russia offered bounties to “Taliban-linked militants” to target American troops which possibly “resulted in the deaths of several U.S. service members” — while Trump reportedly dismissed briefings focusing on “intelligence warnings about Russia.” She didn’t respond either when Trump called reports of intelligence on the bounties a “hoax” despite the fact that such information was included in his Presidential Daily Briefing.

Now, as “the White House has yet to authorize any step” to hold Russia accountable, Loeffler needs to stop trying to take a detour around this issue.

“Our service members deserve more than dodges and deflections — they deserve answers about threats to their safety and our national security,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “It’s time for Senator Kelly Loeffler to answer: Will she hide behind the White House, or will she demand action and accountability to protect our troops?”
