Pelosi calls for sanctions on Russia over bounties

The United States should introduce sanctions on Russia if it paid bounties to the Taliban to kill US soldiers, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said at her weekly press briefing on Thursday.

The top Congress Democrat added that President Donald Trump should have been verbally briefed on the issue as he usually doesn't read his daily briefs and added the intelligence community should have also informed Congress about the Russian bounties.

She went on to say that Russia needs to be held responsible for endangering US security as well as trying to undermine elections "again."
