Judiciary Committee to turn the Russian Federation investigation back on Fusion GPS

Russia keeps trolling Trump, saying he may have had meeting with Putin in 'a toilet'

Browder filed the OFAC complaint on the heels of a Daily Beast report published last week which said that Rohrabacher, a staunch defender of Russian Federation and Putin, accepted a "confidential" document from the prosecutor general's office in Moscow in April 2016 which he then used to try to undermine the Magnitsky Act on Capitol Hill.

"I believe he is worth $200 billion", Browder said, testifying in the Senate panel's probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Browder said that to protect the vast amounts of money, some of which he said was in American banks, Putin launched a campaign to repeal the Magnitsky Act, a US law that imposed sanctions on Russian officials whom the USA held responsible for the 2009 death of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who died in a Russian jail after being retained by Browder to investigate corruption.

Also scheduled to appear is financier Bill Browder, who is expected to shed more light on the practices of Russia's government and its ties to one particular person in the story. They were all allegedly working with the law firm Baker Hostetler to defend the Russian company Prevezon from charges it laundered funds stolen in the fraud Magnitsky uncovered.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders pointed to Browder's Thursday testimony as vindication of Trump's claims that ongoing investigations into potential ties between his campaign and Moscow are political ploys to undermine his presidency. The lawyer he hired, Sergei Magnitsky, died in a Russian prison in 2009 under conditions Browder described as horrific. Since Russia was in no geo-political position to retaliate in kind to the United States, Putin took his familiar low road and had the Russian government pass a bill preventing Americans from adopting Russian children.

"Fusion GPS has complied with the law", the statement said. "Particularly at a time when we face unprecedented interference in our democratic process by a certain country, namely Russian Federation", said Sen. "The people in the room, they found it disconcerting that the person Trump was more comfortable with is their adversary", says Bremmer.

"So, I just want to absorb that for a moment", Graham responded. "They wouldn't have gone in without being prepared to offer something in return".




"This was a big ask", Browder said. "Whether that offer made any sense to the other side, I don't know".

In the USA, if you represent the political interests of foreign governments, by law, you're supposed to register as a "foreign agent".

So did a third player in the Russian Federation imbroglio who so far hasn't had anything like the public profiles of the other characters: Glenn Simpson, the founder of the political research shop Fusion GPS, which originated the infamous, unverified dossier of allegations against Trump that exploded onto the scene ahead of his inauguration earlier this year.

There's renewed interest in the law after a meeting between the Trump campaign's closest advisers, including Manafort, Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and a Russian lawyer.

Last month, Trump's Justice Department suddenly chose to settle the money laundering case against the real estate company.

Fusion GPS was apparently representing these same Putin-connected interests when they were involved in arranging the controversial meeting Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort had with Rinat Akhmetshin, a former Russian intelligence officer and naturalized American citizen, and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya past year.

The chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Republican Sen.
