Leftists Outraged After Putin Requests Questioning of Obama Russian Ambassador and Soros Lackey

Guest post by Joe Hoft

The MSM and Deep State are up in arms about Putin requesting to question former Obama US Ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul. What they ignore are McFaul’s connections to George Soros.

Hillary Clinton tweeted about Trump abandoning a US Ambassador (the gall) –

Far left Salon was one of many MSM outlets that were outraged that the President would consider Putin’s request to question former Russian Ambassador McFaul –

How does it feel to find out that the president of the United States is considering selling you out to a foreign leader whose enemies tend to die or disappear? Michael McFaul and Bill Browder had that experience this week, after the now-notorious Helsinki summit meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Putin has ample reasons not to like either of those men. McFaul was a foreign policy adviser to President Barack Obama and served as U.S. ambassador to Russia from 2012 to 2014. He has been a harsh critic of Putin’s policies, especially during his time in Moscow.

Browder is an American-born British financier who became a major investor in post-Soviet Russia. Although originally a Putin ally, Browder became a major target of the Russian regime after he exposed state corruption and pushed for passage of the Magnitsky Act, a law that allows the U.S. and other Western governments to sanction Russian human rights offenders by freezing their foreign assets, among other things. The law is named for Browder’s former attorney, Sergei Magnitsky, who was arrested while investigating official corruption and died in a Russian prison in 2009.

Both McFaul and Browder have repeatedly been accused of various crimes by Putin’s government, on extremely scant evidence. In the normal course of events, neither of them would need to worry about the elected leader of a democratic nation agreeing to hand them over to their authoritarian nemesis. Yet Trump apparently considered doing precisely that: Putin specifically mentioned Browder as someone he’d like to interrogate during the Helsinki summit, without protest from Trump. When it was revealed on Wednesday that Russia also wanted to question McFaul, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders suggested Trump was considering letting him do so.

Salon forgets to mention that McFaul was connected to far left and elite billionaire George Soros –

No wonder Putin wants answers.
