It "Strains Credulity" meaning: readiness or willingness to believe especially on slight or uncertain evidence. 'Her description of the event strains credulity.'

Our intelligence agencies knew, so the question begged is, if Trump didn't know why didn't they tell him? Myself, I believe they did. So does the NYTimes and anyone who doesn't have their heads stuffed up Trumps rear end.

It took more than 24 hours and one round of golf for Donald Trump to respond to the New York Times story that says he knew of a scheme where Russia paid Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. and British soldiers in Afghanistan.

First, his press secretary denied Trump or Vice President Pence were ever in the loop on the intelligence. Then, Trump predictably tweeted that it was “fake news.”

Mark Meadows wasn’t chief of staff back in March when the intelligence was first shared with the White House. The New York Times writes:

“But one American official had told The Times that the intelligence finding that the Russians had offered and paid bounties to Afghan militants and criminals had been briefed at the highest levels of the White House.

“Another said it was included in the President’s Daily Brief, a written document which draws from spywork to make analytic predictions about longstanding adversaries, unfolding plots and emerging crises around the world. The briefing document is given to the president to read and they serve as the basis for oral briefings to him several times a week.”

It has been reported on numerous occasions that Trump is not a frequent reader, or believer, of the intelligence brief he receives.

But as the Times notes, “American officials reached on Saturday said it strained credulity to think that White House national-security officials would be discussing such an important matter for months and even brief British officials about it and never provide the information to Mr. Trump.”

Joe Biden said Trump’s entire presidency has been a gift to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Not only has he failed to sanction or impose any kind of consequences on Russia for this egregious violation of international law, but Donald Trump has also continued his embarrassing campaign of deference and debasing himself before Vladimir Putin.”

It should be noted that the White House press office has not denied the substance of the reporting by the Times. And the report has been confirmed in the U.K.

It certainly DOES NOT strain credibility to think that anonymous sources at NYT would not try to plant this type of fake news about Trump! They have done it time & time again! If it was in a briefing, there should be a copy somewhere to produce! Where is it? There are other British who have furnished false information about Trump, but if this is so...then produce names and documents! UNTIL THEN, it is NOT BELIEVABLE! The NYT has long ago lost credibility with everyone except the lying left!

Poor Trump, everyone wants to plant fake news about him, don't they? Is that the game being played here? Well, it makes it easier to excuse away his behavior I guess. I mean if I had Trump for president I would be making as many excuses as I could too. But that's all they are, are excuses. Trump was given this information in him PDB and he chose to ignore it and went beyond that and fought to have Russia admitted to the G7. And ask yourself the question--has he retracted the offer? Has he admonished Russia for their behavior? What kind of admonishment should Russia have for murdering 20 of our soldiers? What would you have wanted Obama to do? Tell Putin that he was a bad boy? Given your reaction here that's what I am led to believe that you think...

I've seen too many of these stories from unidentified sources with no documentation to back them up, that I tend to disbelieve them until I have more evidence. There have been numerous times that stories were supposedly corroborated by a couple of sources, only to find they were both based on the same unverified information.
I am going to wait for more information before I make up my mind.

New information from CNN citing named sources. Neither the President nor Vice-president were briefed on the report. Partly because it hadn't been confirmed, but mostly because there were no viable options short of bombing Moscow or starting a war.
Part of the responsibilities of the intelligence community is to provide options for the President to act on. Until they had something, about all the President (any US President) could do would be to call the leader of whichever country is involved (in this case, Putin) and voice his displeasure at the reports.
