Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has lashed out Donald Trump, declaring that "the president himself is a hoax."

Speaking during an interview with MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle, Pelosi made several false claims about President Trump while discussing his response to the allegations of Russia placing a bounty on American soldiers.

"He'll say this is a hoax, and it's a hoax that [Russia is] 24/7 trying to disrupt our elections like they did in 2016," Pelosi told Ruhle.

"He says that coronavirus is a hoax," the speaker falsely claimed.

"The fact is, the president himself is a hoax," Pelosi added.

Pelosi was commenting on reports that Russian intelligence officials offered Taliban militants bounties to kill coalition forces in Afganistan, including U.S. troops, and claims from the anti-Trump media that the president was briefed on the information in February.

Multiple White House officials have pushed back, arguing that Trump was not briefed.

"The president was not briefed because at the time of these allegations they were uncorroborated," White House national security adviser Robert O'Brien said Wednesday.

"The president's career CIA briefer decided not to brief him because it was unverified intelligence ... and knowing all the facts I know, I certainly support her decision."

Throughout her briefings this week, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has also denied that the president was briefed on the matter.

The Gang of Eight — of which Pelosi is a member — was briefed on the situation Thursday, according to The Hill.

"Force protection is a primary purpose of intelligence," Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) said in a joint statement. 

"It should have the same importance to the Commander-in-Chief.

"Any reports of threats on our troops must be pursued relentlessly.

“These reports are coming to light in the context of the president being soft on Vladimir Putin when it comes to NATO, the G7, Crimea, Ukraine and the ongoing undermining of the integrity of our elections,” the two Democrats said.

"Our Armed Forces would be better served if President Trump spent more time reading his daily briefing and less time planning military parades and defending relics of the Confederacy."

In her press conference Thursday, Pelosi criticized Trump and his administration further, saying, "the president should have been verbally briefed on it."

However, as Neon Nettle reported Friday, despite vocal rebuke against Trump from Democrats, it has now emerged that Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) was briefed on the alleged threat in February.

Rep. Schiff knew of the allegations that Russia was offering "bounties" for killing U.S. troops, but kept it hidden from Congress, according to a bombshell new report.

Schiff's aides reportedly first learned in February that the Russian military had placed prices on the heads of American troops in Afghanistan but took no action.

During a congressional trip to Afghanistan, Schiff's top Intelligence Committee staff was briefed on intelligence that Russia offered the Taliban bounties.

Following the briefing, however, Schiff sat on the information took no action while keeping the threat hidden from his congressional colleagues and President Donald Trump, sources told The Federalist.
