Trump Considers Handing Former U.S. Ambassador Over to Putin For Interogation

USA Today: “The firestorm over President Donald Trump’s summit with Vladimir Putin has broadened to include the revelation that Trump is open to allowing Russian investigators to grill American citizens, including former U.S. ambassador Michael McFaul.”

“The White House confirmed Wednesday that Trump was considering a proposal from the Russian president to allow Kremlin officials to question McFaul and other individuals in exchange for allowing U.S. investigators to sit in on the questioning of 12 Russians indicted on charges of trying to undermine the 2016 U.S. election.”

“The arrangement, which Trump called an ‘incredible offer,’ has been condemned by critics and dubbed ‘absolutely absurd’ by the State Department.”
