Former national security adviser John Bolton told CBS News’ “The Takeout” podcast” on Wednesday that he would have personally briefed President Trump if he saw intelligence that Russian officials offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. troops, but cautioned that Trump is simply not receptive to intelligence briefings…

“It’s a complex process and there’s no point where it gets to be, you know, just right like in Goldilocks and three bears, and then you run in and tell the president,” Bolton said.

“You don’t take everything in to the president, but when American troops are threatened by an adversary like Russia in this way, if there’s any indication this is an ongoing operation, it’s something the president needs to take into account.”
