If there is even a shred of truth to the reports that are currently saturating social media, starting with the bombshell article that came from the New York Times, Donald Trump has undoubtedly committed blatant treason against the country he swore to protect the moment he took office.

According to the reports, a Russian military intelligence unit offered bounties to fighters linked to the Taliban to kill United States soldiers. These reports go on to assert that not only did Donald Trump know about these bounties and killings, he did absolutely nothing with or about the intelligence.

Now, one mother of a Marine who lost his life on the battlefield and may have been a target of one of these sickening bounties wants some answers.


According to a report from CNBC, Felicia Arculeo, whose son Cpl. Robert Hendriks lost his life in an April 8, 2019 attack, told the publication, “that the parties who are responsible should be held accountable, if that’s even possible.”

Arculeo, a resident of Long Island, NY, asserts that she has not received any communications from U.S. intelligence or military officials since Friday — the very day the bombshell NYT report went public.

“I just happened to randomly see,” the news of the report, she stated. “I got pretty upset.”

Arculeo’s son and two of his fellow Marines — Sgt. Benjamin Hines and Staff Sgt. Christopher Slutman — were all killed by a car bomb close to Bagram Air Field just three days before they were scheduled to come home from Afghanistan.

Arculeo was adamant that the bounties that may have killed her son be thoroughly investigated, despite claims from Trump and his White House that the intelligence wasn’t verified.

“Absolutely, that should be investigated,” she stated.

If Trump truly did have knowledge of this intelligence and continued to allow the Russian government to proceed with these bounties against US troops… Impeachment wouldn’t scratch the surface of what he deserves.
