Trump considers sending an American to Putin (Russia) to be questioned by Vladimir Putin and Russian intelligence. Here is where it all really begins people. Putin is asking for an American ambassador (a man that Putin possibly wants killed for writing a book about him and Russia) and the White House is considering it.
Turning over former US Ambassador Michael McFaul to Russia for questioning would be grounds for impeaching President #DonaldTrump, Rep. Eric Swalwell declared on Wednesday.
At the #WhiteHouse #pressbriefing on Wednesday, press secretary Sarah Sanders said Putin's request was being considered but that no decision had been made.
"The President's going to meet with his team and we'll let you know when we have an announcement on that," she said.
Russia also asked to interview the American-born financier Bill Browder, who successfully lobbied the US government to impose new sanctions on Moscow.
At the joint news conference between Trump and Putin on Monday, Trump called it an "interesting idea."
McFaul, who served as ambassador to Russia under President #BarackObama, has been cited by Russian media as a "person of interest" in an ongoing investigation into Browder.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert also commented on the matter on Wednesday, and denied that the US would allow such an exchange to take place
