Watch: Journalist Grills Treasury Secretary On Trump-Putin Cyber Deal
Boom! George Stephanopoulos grilled Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on the Trump-Putin cyber deal that ‘Crooked Donald’ announced this weekend via Twitter.
Putin & I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded..

Mnunchin tried to justify the deal by comparing it to traditional cooperation between allies. There’s only one minor detail that Mnunchin is missing here: Russian is not a U.S. ally! It’s not normal, standard, or proper to cooperate with foreign adversaries on matters of national security.
Your friends here at Democratic Memes got in on the action as well, pointing out the lunatic fringe irony of this cyber deal.

Even ‘Little Marco’ Rubio got in on the action as well, insulting the deal as akin to partnering with Assad on chemical weapons.
Partnering with Putin on a "Cyber Security Unit" is akin to partnering with Assad on a "Chemical Weapons Unit". 2/3
