White House sent Melania into Trump-Putin meeting in a failed effort to get Trump to stop talking

Whatever went on behind the closed doors of Trump/Putin conference, it clearly didn’t just stretch out longer than expected, it went in a direction that deeply worried the other members of team Trump. How badly was it out of control? This bad, Follow Jeff Zeleny ✔ @jeffzeleny Secretary Tillerson said Melania Trump was sent into the meeting at the one-hour mark to try to break it up, but they kept talking 12:39 PM - 7 Jul 2017 173 173 Retweets 163 163 likes Twitter Ads info and privacy Hey, this is going so well that we should really send his wife in there to see if she can stop it … is a thing no one ever said. Just what was it that set off the “go find Melania” alarm? According to Tillerson, Trump did talk to Putin about hacking of the US election … but Trump and Putin agreed that this subject was “a hindrance” to US/Russian relations. So, according to Lavrov, Trump accepted Putin’s statements that Russia had not been involved. Tillerson says that Trump made no effort to produce evidence supporting Russian hacking. In fact, he did the opposite. According to Lavrov, “Trump told Putin that some circles in the US are exaggerating the topic of Russian cyber meddling.” Circles that apparently include the CIA, FBI, and NSA. Again, Trump and Putin agreed that what was really important was “moving forward.” And to move forward, Donald Trump agreed to form a joint task force with the Russians to address cyber security. All of which sounds as if Trump agreed to drop any effort to sanction or otherwise hold Russia to task for interference in the election, and instead offered to give the robbers access to the information on where the keys are stored and how the security is wired.
