McFaul: Summit’s only result was Putin's 'crazy swap idea'

Clip: 07/19/2018 | 10m 4s

President Trump called it an "incredible offer" from Vladimir Putin: The U.S. could question 12 Russians indicted for 2016 election interference in exchange for specific Americans being interrogated by Moscow. Now White House officials say they reject the idea. Judy Woodruff talks with former Ambassador Michael McFaul, one of Russia’s targets, and former Acting Director of the CIA John McLaughlin.
