On Thursday, the Trump administration ordered the closure of the Russian consulate in San Francisco in retaliation for Russia's expulsion of U.S. diplomats. The order also closes a consular annex in New York and a chancery annex in Washington. We'll talk to former U.S. ambassador to Russia and Stanford professor Michael McFaul about the closures, the state of Washington-Moscow relations, and the ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign's ties with Russia.

Guests:
Michael McFaul, director of the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, Stanford University; former U.S Ambassador to Russia
