This fucking seditionist traitor is out of control. Mr. Mueller, please hurry!
WH press sec Sanders acknowledged that Putin talked to Trump about his interest in prosecuting financier Bill Browder and former US ambassador Michael McFaul. she declined to rule out US cooperation in that effort, saying Trump would consult his national security team

Let’s recall why Putin began making outrageous, false accusations against @McFaul: Mike stood up for human rights and against Russian oppression. That terrified Putin. The fact that @realDonaldTrump won’t stand up for an American patriot is a travesty https://t.co/Z6zlPYGV5Y

An extraordinary disconnect between White House and State Department: .@PressSec says @realDonaldTrump is entertaining proposal from Putin to let Russia question former U.S. ambassador to Moscow, Michael McFaul. State calls idea "absurd."

For those keeping score at home, this means Putin asked the President to let him get his hands on a former US ambassador to Russia, @McFaul, and man who successfully lobbied for one of the primary sanctions against Russia. And the WH can’t say how POTUS responded. Remarkable. https://t.co/Ly3vPuP2vS

.@maggieNYT asks @WHPressSec abt Russia’s call to intv @Billbrowder & @McFaul: “Pres will meet w/ his team & we’ll let you know when we have an announcement on that front.” Acknowledges the topic was discussed privately bween Trump & Putin.

America’s diplomats deserve to know our president supports their work & won’t serve them up in a deeply misguided attempt to gain the approval of hostile foreign leaders. @realDonaldTrump must refuse Putin’s request. https://t.co/oi9TVoQ9tj

While everyone is outraged about @Mcfaul the Russian prosecutor Yury Chaika (same one involved in the Don Jr-Russia meet) issued a threat to @Billbrowder yesterday. They will not ‘let him sleep soundly’ Notice the graphic used. We as Americans need to put an end to this insanity pic.twitter.com/ThkycSG924
