When the White House announced on Thursday that Russian President Vladimir Putin would be invited to Washington, D.C. this fall, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats was on stage at the Aspen Security Forum. Obviously, no one at the White House let him know ahead of time.

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell informed the DNI of the development.

“Say that again,” he said, leaning in.

“Ok,” he let out, resigned to the coming event. “That’s going to be special.”
