Episode Info: At the Aspen Security Forum, yesterday, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell reportedly blindsided Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats by informing him, in front of a live audience, of President Donald Trump's invitation to Vladimir Putin to the White House, this fall.In the interview, Coats was visibly taken aback by the news, even audibly laughing at the President's lack of notice, saying "Okay...that's gonna be special."The candid interview has led many Trump loyalists to believe that the President simply no longer has confidence in Coats as his National Intelligence Director.Moreover, new reporting from Axios shows multiple sources close to the President actively speculating whether or not Trump will end up firing Coats.MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell joins us, this morning, to discuss her telling interview with Mr. Coats.Meanwhile, less than 24 hours after the White House announced that it was "considering" Russia's "incredible offer" to interrogate United States Officials, including Fmr. U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, in exchange for the 12 Russian Intelligence Officers indicted in Robert Mueller's investigation, President Trump has now come out in disagreement with the request.The walk-back marks yet another addendum to President Trump's pro-Putin rhetoric, stemming from their summit in Helsinki, on Monday.It's Friday, July 20, 2018.
