John James Revealed: John James Silent As New Reports Reveal Trump Knew of Russian Bounties to Kill U.S. Troops For Over a Year

New reports reveal that President Trump was made aware of intelligence briefings of Russia secretly putting bounties on the killing of American soldiers in Afghanistan in March 2019, “a full year earlier than has been previously reported.” Reports also detail that bounties “are believed to have resulted in the deaths of several U.S. service members.”

As Trump fails to protect our troops and instead cowers to Putin, even calling for Russia’s re-entry into the G7 – John James is silent.

“John James is ‘2000%’ with Trump even as he’s weak on Russia and failed to take action to protect the lives of American soldiers,” said Michigan Democratic spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “If James won’t break from the President even when our national security and troops’ safety is on the line, he can’t be trusted to do what’s right for Michigan.” 

The Michigan Democratic Party launched to hold the failed U.S. Senate candidate accountable for his positions – including those made over the course of the 2018 campaign that he then tried to delete after losing that campaign. For the first year of his campaign, James was largely in hiding from  Michigan press and voters to try to paper over his out-of-touch record, and has only come out of hiding after facing scrutiny from Michiganders.
