    Trump Administration Asks Congress to Reimburse The Taliban

    President Donald Trump asked Congress to pay the Afghanistan Taliban for the costs associated with attending peace conferences, according to a new report.

    The Department of Defense asked Congress to reimburse members of the Taliban earlier this year for expenses incurred while attending a number of negotiations, according to House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense Chair, Pete Visclosky.

    The money would be used to cover transportation, lodging, food and miscellaneous supplies, Kevin Spicer, spokesman for Indiana Democrat Visclosky, told CQ Roll Call.

    But, said Spicer, this request to pay the Taliban with U.S. money “would implicate provisions of law concerning material support to terrorists, the Taliban’s ongoing offensive operations against U.S. service members, and their continuing lack of acknowledgement of the government of Afghanistan or the rights of women in Afghan society.”

    No, by all means, stick with "News"week and the DemoKKKrat "spokesman". :D:D:D LOL

    Perhaps they have an update on the ice cream situation at the White House, too?

    Let’s face it - the odds of any given human being speaking the truth are WAY better than the odds of Trump speaking the truth.

    And yet you believe Trump and disbelieve others.

    You think you might be brainwashed?

    How about we get the TRUTH and DETAILS before we rely on alt-left news? This comes from a Congressional aide to a low level house Democrat that no one has heard of. Some of us tend to wait for facts. This is how you mentally ill lefties get duped so often. Hands up, don't shoot. Kavanaugh is a serial rapist. Jussie Smollett was beaten by racist white guys. Trump instructed Cohen to lie to Congress. The phony dossier. Etc. etc. etc. Your ilk lap up this fake news.

    Stop proving to us you have a low IQ. But then again maybe you can't help yourself. Lulz

    I gave you evidence it is true. Got a statement from anybody saying it isn't?

    Why do you people pretend to care whether or not it’s true? No matter what Trump does you all clap like trained seals.

    You gave me "evidence"? The words of a staffer of a low-level Democrat? That screams credible. These people spew fake propaganda daily. And no one has mentioned it because I don't think anyone considers alt-left propaganda credible enough to even address. Do you have someone credible? You know, like Nancy Pelosi? Oh wait, I strike that. She said a subpoena against Holder was "awful" while a subpoena against Barr refused was a "Constitutional crisis". She's just as non-credible. I'll wait for a Republican leader to talk about it. Probably won't happen because it exists in alt-left sphere of conspiracies and lies. Not worth addressing.

    Anything else to say here or are you going to waddle off and cry yourself to sleep now?

    So NEWSWEEK is not credible?

    Meanwhile....are you commenting on the topic? Nope. Instead you go off on a rant about Pelosi...

    Newsweek is not a credible source, nor is the word of a "spokesperson" for a lying DemoKKKrat politician, your unhinged obsession with President Trump notwithstanding.
