President Trump Rejects Putin’s Request to Interrogate US Officials
President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin held a joint press conference Monday in Helsinki, Finland.
During the press conference Putin dropped a major bomb!
Putin accused Bill Browder of donating $400,000 to HILLARY CLINTON!
Putin offered permitting officials in the US, including Mueller, to Russia to assist in their investigation of the supposed Trump-Russia collusion story. Then Putin dropped his bomb where the US could reciprocate Russia in one of their investigations, citing a 1999 treaty –
For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder, in this particular case. Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia and never paid any taxes neither in Russia or the United States and yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent [a] huge amount of money, $400,000 as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Well that’s their personal case. It might have been legal, the contribution itself but the way the money was earned was illegal. So we have solid reason to believe that some [US] intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions. So we have an interest in questioning them.
On Wednesday, the White House confirmed Vladimir Putin asked President Trump in the private meeting if Russia could interview Obama’s Ambassador, Michael McFaul over alleged financial crimes involving Bill Browder.
The Democrats and media sycophants melted down over Putin’s request to interrogate Americans including Obama’s Ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul.
On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump rejected Putin’s request, Fox News reported.
“It is a proposal that was made in sincerity by President Putin, but President Trump disagrees with it,” Sanders said to reporters. “Hopefully President Putin will have the 12 identified Russians come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt.”
Obama’s Ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul lashed out at Putin on Tuesday claiming the Russian president has been “harassing” him for a long time. McFaul said he expects his government to defend him and his colleagues.
As I discuss in detail in From Cold War to Hot Peace, Putin has been harassing me for a long time. That he now wants to arrest me, however, takes it to a new level. I expect my government to defend me and my colleagues, in public and private.

Like the way then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defended Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods?
