Trump's daily brief covered Russia bounty information - report

Information about Russia offering bounties to Afghan militants for killing US and coalition troops was included in one of United States President Trump’s daily briefings, according to CNN.

The media outlet revealed, citing a source, that the president's briefing book contained the intelligence however it remains unclear whether Trump had knowledge of the findings, as the entire book is not briefed to the president by the intel agencies.

The source went on to note the information suggesting Russia's General Staff of the Armed Forces (GRU) offered the bounties was backed by "several pieces of information," including electronic eavesdropping and interrogation of detained Taliban militants.
