U.S. intelligence services put in doubt recent report that revealed ties between Russia and Taliban movement. Reuters wrote that, quoting multiple sources in the U.S. and European government sources. President Trump said he was not even updated on this report, because CIA civil servant did not have confidence in the intelligence.
“We never heard about it because intelligence never found it to be of that level,” he told Fox Business Network. “The intelligence people... many of them didn’t believe it happened at all", Trump said.
An informed source told Reuters there was an internal debate about whether Russia actually paid the Taliban fighters for killing U.S. military in Afghanistan.
