Former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell is holding journalists, Democrat operatives and officials accountable after claims President Donald Trump ignored Russia paying Taliban fighters to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan were walked back by U.S. intelligence officials.
Your Russian conspiracy theories are all about politics.— Richard Grenell (@RichardGrenell) April 16, 2021
You and @AdamSchiff have manipulated intelligence for political gain over and over.
Stop slandering career intelligence officials who have proven you lied. https://t.co/0xsDZBj55E
Will they apologize for pushing this lie? And claiming they confirmed it separately?@jaketapper @JoeNBC @wolfblitzer @thereidout @maddow @GStephanopoulos @brianstelter @CBSNews @ChrisCuomo @AliVelshi @BrookeBaldwin @KamalaHarris https://t.co/6KnZ9Q2noc— Richard Grenell (@RichardGrenell) April 16, 2021

The DC media have also been caught interfering in the 2020 election.— Richard Grenell (@RichardGrenell) April 16, 2021
October 2020 media lies:
They told us not to look at Hunter Biden’s laptop because it was Russian disinformation.
They told us Trump ignored Russian bounties on US troops. https://t.co/vX0mjNBPZA
At the White House Thursday, Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about President Biden repeatedly using the false story to attack Trump on the 2020 campaign trail.
"Does the President have any regrets for how many times he attacked President Trump on the campaign about this issue for not taking action related to the Russian bounties?" a reporter asked.
"Well, I'm not going to speak to the previous administration. But I will say that we had enough concern about these reports and about the targeting of our men and women serving -- the men and women who are proudly serving around the world -- that we wanted our intelligence community to look into it," Psaki answered.
