William Browder: Fusion GPS Was Acting On Behalf Of Russia

In June 2012, Congress passed the Magnitsky Act to punish those who were in some way were responsible for Magnitsky's death and laundering the stolen tax money by preventing them from coming to the United States or using our banking system.

Charles Grassley, Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has expressed concerns regarding how and why Veselnitskaya was able to move so swiftly within certain political arenas within the United States having such freedom.

British-American investor William Browder, whom Russian Federation has accused of financial crimes, said reversing the 2012 Magnitsky Act is President Vladimir Putin's "single most important foreign policy goal".

Browder is the CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, an investment firm that was once the largest portfolio investor in Russian Federation.

Congress was considering expanding the act at the time, and there was an intense lobbying effort by a handful of people with Russian ties on Capitol Hill to have Magnitsky's name removed from it.

Glenn Simpson will speak to the committee behind closed doors about the dossier, which was created by a former British intelligence agent Richard Steele, that made sensational and salacious charges about Trump and Russian Federation.

Browder alleged in the complaint that Rohrabacher provided "services" to Russia's deputy general prosecutor, Victor Grin, by attempting to stymie an expansion of the Magnitsky Act being deliberated in Congress last summer.

Under questioning by Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, Browder affirmed that talk of adoption was effectively Russian code for lifting the sanctions.

Fusion GPS has denied that it was lobbying and has said it was simply doing legal research for Baker Hostetler on the Prevezon case, which settled in May with no admission of guilt by Prevezon.

Although Trump Jr.'s publicly released emails show Clinton was to be the the primary topic of discussion at the Trump Tower meeting, Trump Jr. has maintained the topic was instead the adoption of Russian children. You believe they were working for the Russians? Magnitsky worked to uncover a $230 million tax fraud scheme in Russian Federation, was jailed and later died in a Moscow prison under suspicious circumstances. "That's the one thing we can conclude with certainty about what happened in that meeting".

Browder responded, "It's absolutely essential that they do, and it's absolutely essential that there's transparency about who people are talking to and about what their interests are".

'What they were willing to offer in return I don't know.

"This was a big ask", Browder said.

"Anyone who knows me understands that I am the Member of Congress least likely to take directions from government officials, especially foreign government officials". In fact, she has denied having anything to do with the Kremlin, but the fact that she once represented interests of the F.S.B.in court may raise numerous eyebrows, especially among US politicians. For example, it's possible to remove banks from the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control sanctions list with executive action after they've been added. His company Fusion GPS commissioned the infamous Russia-Trump dossier.
