Ask John Cornyn about the Russian bounties on US troops: What did he know and when did he know it?

According to the New York Times, Russia has put a bounty on the heads of US soldiers serving in Afghanistan. President Trump has known about this for months, but instead of responding to protect our troops, he’s tried to hand Putin a big win, by inviting him back into the G8.

This is an obscene betrayal, even by this administration’s standard’s.

John Cornyn sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee and should have known about this. Call Cornyn’s office today and ask when the Senator first learned about Russia putting our soldiers in the crosshairs? What does he think of the President’s inaction?  What does he intend to do to protect our troops?

Senator Cornyn: 512-469-6034 or 202-224-2934
