Capitol Report: Trump may return Russian compounds in N.Y., Maryland | Nigel Farage is ‘person of interest’ in FBI’s Trump-Russia probe

President Donald Trump’s administration is moving toward handing back two diplomatic compounds to Russia.

The Trump administration is moving toward handing back to Russia two diplomatic compounds, one near New York City and one on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, that its officials were ejected from in late December, the Washington Post writes.

The officials were kicked out as punishment for Moscow’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. President Barack Obama said on Dec. 29 that the compounds were being “used by Russian personnel for intelligence-related purposes” and gave Russia 24 hours to vacate them. The Trump administration had last month told the Russians it would consider turning the properties back over to them if Moscow would lift its freeze on construction of a new U.S.
