Before I would believe this, I would have to see it confirmed by independent sources other than “US intelligence.” This seems more like disinformation cooked up to undermine Trump’s reelection. It is clear that the Deep State, neocons, neoliberals, the bulk of the military-industrial complex, majority of the capitalist class, and 100% of the new clerisy (with most of the Left acting as useful idiots) have formed an axis for the purpose of purging the neo-realist insurgency within the ruling class that Trump symbolizes (however incompetently).
The objective of this dominant ruling class axis is to elect Sleepy Joe, cart him off to a nursing home or keep him doped up on pills (like they did with Reagan in the 1980s), install Kamala as the official acting prez, with the Dragon Lady being the real prez, and her old cronies Samanta Power Sunstein, Maudlin Half-bright, Susan Rice, the Kagan boys, Michele Flournoy, and Vicki Nuland being brought back into the State Department along with Republican defectors like Bill Kristol (or his puppets) and John Bolton, who is obviously lobbying hard for a position in a future Biden administration.

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. assailed President Trump on Saturday for failing to punish Russia for offering bounties to the Taliban to kill American troops in Afghanistan, while the White House denied that Mr. Trump had been briefed on the months-old classified intelligence assessment about Russia’s activities.
Citing officials briefed on the matter, The New York Times reported on Friday that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly paid Taliban-linked militants to target coalition troops in Afghanistan, including Americans and that Mr. Trump had been briefed about it. The article also reported that the White House’s National Security Council discussed the problem at an interagency meeting in late March, but no response had yet been authorized.
