Pompeo : US Won't Allow Russian Questioning of Former US Ambassador
Saturday, 21 July 2018 03:31 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

The U.S. has no intention of allowing Russia to question Michael McFaul, Washington's former ambassador to Moscow and a fierce critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told VOA on Thursday.

"It's not going to happen," the top U.S. diplomat said in an interview at the State Department.

Pompeo said Putin "made a proposal about a number of things during the course of the conversation" he had Monday at his Helsinki summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.

"There were suggestions, comments, thoughts by President Putin with respect to that inquiry," Pompeo told VOA. "President Trump was very clear “ we're not gonna force Americans to go to Russia to be interrogated by the Russians."

The Russian leader proposed to let U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators fly to Moscow to interview 12 military intelligence officials indicted in connection with hacking into computers of Democrats working to defeat Trump in the 2016 election in exchange for Russian interviews of McFaul; an American-born British businessman, Bill Browder, who worked to get legislation passed in the U.S. and elsewhere to sanction Russia for human rights violations, and other Americans.
