Putin Asked Trump For Permission To Interrogate Obama's Ambassador

Update: It appears Michael McFaul is really getting nervous, tweeting like a teenager on meth tonight:

"I hope the White House corrects the record and denounces in categorical terms this ridiculous request from Putin. Not doing so creates moral equivalency between a legitimacy US indictment of Russian intelligence officers and a crazy, completely fabricated story invented by Putin"

*  *  *

With The White House flip-flopping back and forth on what was actually said - and meant to be said - in Helsinki, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders dropped the latest tape-bomb to blow the establishment's mind during to today's press conference.

Sanders reported that President Trump is open to a proposal from Vladimir Putin to let Russian authorities question the former U.S. ambassador to Moscow, Michael McFaul.

While Trump reportedly made no commitments to Putin, the Russian president offered to allow Special Counsel Robert Mueller to observe interrogations of the 12 Russian intelligence agents indicted by a U.S. grand jury last week for hacking Democratic Party email accounts.

Trump called it an “interesting idea” and an “incredible offer” at the news conference.

Sanders left the press corps dangling by concluding that:

"The president will work with his team and we’ll let you know if there’s an announcement on that front."

As The Hill reports, Russia state-owned outlet RT reported that Russia wanted to question McFaul and the author of the so-called Steele dossier, Christopher Steele, among others in its investigation into American financier Bill Browder.

Browder is a prominent critic of Putin who lobbied on behalf of the Magnitsky Act, which imposed sanctions against Russia.

McFaul has denounced the possibility of his being questioned by Russian officials, and has called on Trump to condemn the proposal.

“Putin has been harassing me for a long time,” McFaul said on Twitter on Wednesday.

“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.”

And went on...

Does he seem nervous to you?

And nothing will happen because Wilbur Ross of Rothschild and Steve Mnuchin of Goldman will tell their egotistical Orange Puppet to leave Hillary and Browder alone...because they're good people...and they've had a rough time.

Until Hillary is wearing a prison jumpsuit, this is all a bread and circuses distraction.

McFaul is another rhodes scholar like Billy.   


The people just want the truth so bad they're willing to watch everything go to hell in a hand basket to get to it.   Nobody but all the politicians are to blame for that, so this left blaming the right is genuine BS.  We used to have a democracy. Now we have a hypocrisy.

"Where are the stories about Hillary and that $400,000,000?

MSM completely sweeping it under the rug".


I was looking for it on this ZH article about mr. Bowder ... but, suprise suprise NO mention of it at all .... i wonder why ? 

If this is treated as an allegation, and we have to wait for a court conviction ??? if so, don't hold your breath ... ain't going to happen.

gleeful savagery of the punishment...

Coming soon.  I mean how many times can you poke a man in the nose before he rolls back and gives you a heart stopping whollup? He is the president, you know.  Eventually he is going to get tired of all this Russia BS and simply declassify everything as the head cockroaches scatter to lands abroad leaving only silly little antifa's, unicorns and snowflakes wondering where's my Prog-chums now?

This Russian reset I like.  Let's work together and remove the tyranny from both superpowers. (Tranny's too).

How soon can it begin???

Hopefully with in the hour. Am believing that Russia is not so civilized with enemies of their people, who happen to be the enemies of the American people as well.

Electricity, gouging eyes out..... Obama's boy was taught to bring a gun to a knife fight. Vlad, please return the favor and make him squeal like the pig he is!

My work involves coordination and delivery of live events, mostly corporates.  In January of 2014, I was working on an event in Las Vegas for a billionaire's "Charitable Foundation" tax dodge.

I was backstage talking to the video guys about something, and noticed the group of celebrities in the Green Room, yucking it up and having a good ol' time with each other.

Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush, and Donald J. Trump.  Oh, and Carly Fiorina, too.

Good times were had by all.

There were certainly all pals then.  And I wouldn't be terribly surprised if they still are now, though Trump might not be so welcome in that crowd anymore.

You obviously have no idea about the dual citizen Browder.

I wrote about this in detail in my post , the Helsinki meeting.

The Russian gov. tried multiple times to arrest him through Interpol and he was saved by US gov., also he is not a US citizen( he gave up this to avoid paying taxes.)

Last time he was arrested in Oct 2017( under the Donald) and immediately released from a Spanish prison secondary to the US request.

The Magnitsky law was given to protect him.

Trump to Vlad: "I'll do one better you can interrogate the Ambassador and Obama at the same time, and for the cherry on top- I'll let you interrogate: Hillary, Bill, Rosenstein, Comey, McCabe, Brennan, Lynch, Clapper, Chuck Schummmer, Debbie Wasserman Shitface, Eric Holder and that little fucking weasel from CNN- we'll deliver them aboard a military C-17- already shackled, just in case.

I hate this notion that just because something isn't on TV it didn't happen.

It's bullshit. The maverick look's like he's aged years in the last few weeks and it's beginning to piss me off to no end that that cocksucking, weasel, PUNK, Jeff Sessions is probably at the fucking beach with Rosenstein and Wray. This thing needs to be burned right down to the ground.
