The statement came as the administration faced mounting backlash for even entertaining Putin's proposal, which pertained to the Robert Mueller probe.

Why Can't We Be Friends? Liberal actor Mark Duplass issued an apology to his fans on Thursday after sending them into a lather by calling conservative pundit Ben Shapiro a "genuine person" with good intentions.
