Ambassador Michael McFaul was interviewed Thursday by MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber on “The Beat.”

“I don’t understand why the president doesn’t understand that this is no good for him,” McFaul said. “It discredits his own election or reelection. So he should be out in front of this condemning what the Russians are doing instead of trying on cover it up.”

McFaul also warned that undermining Trump’s legitimacy was one of Putin’s goals.

On Wednesday, writing on Twitter, Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman invited a Trump supporter accused of voter fraud to apply for a pardon if convicted — in thanks for showing Pennsylvania voters, and Republicans around the country, how difficult it is to commit voter fraud.

The case centers on a man in Forty Fort, Luzerne County, who allegedly filled out an absentee ballot application for his deceased mother with the intention of casting a second ballot for President Donald Trump, in her name. He faces up to 10 years in prison if found guilty.
