White House entertaining Russian proposal to interrogate U.S. citizens
 
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/white-h...-u-s-citizens/

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday that President Trump would discuss a Russian proposal to question American citizens, including*former U.S. Ambassador Michael McFaul, whom the Kremlin accuses of committing crimes in Russia.*

....

According to a proposal outlined by Putin*at Monday's Helsinki summit, Russian authorities would observe the interrogation of the Americans. In exchange, special counsel Robert Mueller would be allowed to witness the questioning of 12 Russian nationals the U.S. has indicted for allegedly participating in election interference.

Later in Wednesday's press conference, CBS News' Steven Portnoy raised the issue again. Portnoy noted that Mr. Trump had called the Russian proposal an "interesting idea" and an "incredible offer" in Helsinki. "Why would he say that?" Portnoy asked.

What's the story here?

Mueller indicted 12 Russians. He obv knows they'll never be extradited here, so it's obv pointless. If anything, Trumps offer here (if it's even real) would help Mueller because it's the only avenue he'd have to question these Russians.

So, we can interview Russians accused of crimes here, but they can't interview Americans accused of crime there? I think neither of the accused would leave their prospective countries...

Lke the Concord management case, Trump is calling Muellerís bluff.

This is awesome and Pogue gets it. This is Trump and Putin calling Mueller's bluff.

Mueller: Kiss my ass.

Trump: Present it.

Bet you Mueller isn't willing to show his ass on this.

Chief Northman 07-18-2018 10:18 PM

Brilliant by Trump. When Mueller comes up empty on the 12 Russians, the pressure will be on him to essentially turn over McFaul.

Maybe Strok can lend Mueller his “love for country and Patriot” speech...

Hey McFaul - turn yourself over to Putin so Mueller can have his Russian examinations

Put your country first. Be a patriot
