(PatriotWise.com)- According to Axios, senior officials in the Trump administration are preparing to declassify intelligence that shows the communist Chinese government funding attacks on American troops in Afghanistan. Officials said that President Donald Trump had been briefed on the intelligence before Christmas day by his national security adviser Robert O’Brien.
This could absolutely blow up Joe Biden’s plans to bring the United States closer to China, presuming that he is inaugurated on January 20.
According to the Axios report, the intelligence has yet to be fully corroborated, but the information so far suggests there China paid “non state actors” to carry out ambushes and attacks on American soldiers. The report also says that PRC weapons are “illicitly flowing into Afghanistan.”
A source told the outlet that there is substantial evidence to back this up.
“The U.S. has evidence that the PRC [People’s Republic of China] attempted to finance attacks on American servicemen by Afghan non-state actors by offering financial incentives or ‘bounties’ and said the National Security Council is ‘coordinating a whole-of-government investigation,’” the source said.

Another senior official from the Trump administration said that they react with caution to initial reports but they also “take very seriously” any intel reports that relate to the “safety of our forces.”
Axios says that the sources did not disclose if any of the non state actors referenced in the report were from the Taliban, and there has not yet been any explanation of when these attacks may have taken place or even at what scale they occurred. All that has been revealed is that they occurred at the end of February soon after the Trump administration facilitated a deal with the Taliban.
Not only would this prove President Trump right again about communist China – a country that Joe Biden seems very fond of – but could potentially throw a spanner in the works for Democrats who have repeatedly criticized President Trump for dismissing reports earlier this year that Russia paid Taliban soldiers to kill American troops.
It’s likely we will know more within the next couple of weeks, as Joe Biden may or may not enter the White House on January 20. If it turns out that the Chinese paid these bounties and not Russia, then the Democrats have a lot to answer for.
