Co-founder of Fusion GPS agrees to speak to Senate panel

Co-founder of Fusion GPS agrees to speak to Senate panel”

"The interest and the goal in that meeting was to repeal the Magnitsky Act", Browder said.

"What I can speak very competently about is that this firm, Fusion GPS, run by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson, was taking money, and directly from a senior Russian family official, in order to try to repeal something called the Magnitsky Act", Browder told Fox News' "America's Newsroom."

Asked why one law matters so much to Vladimir Putin when the USA has levied other sanctions on Russia, Browder argued it's because the sanctions targeted specific wealthy individuals directly tied to the Russian president's own suspected massive personal fortune.

He declined, when asked on Monday, to explain what changes he would make with the amendatory veto. Republicans object to provisions in the bill they say bails out Chicago's pension system.

Browder's complaint rests largely on a Daily Beast report published last week alleging that Rohrabacher, a staunch defender of Russian Federation and Putin, met with officials from the prosecutor general's office in Moscow in April 2016. He personally is at risk of the Maginitsky Act. After Congress passed the sanctions on individuals and entities responsible for Magnitsky's death, the Kremlin retaliated by blocking the adoption of Russian children in the U.S. He alleges that Russian law enforcement stole $230 million his company had paid in taxes.

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.

Natalia Veselnitskaya, Rinat Akhmetshin and Ike Kaveladzek, three of the people at the meeting in Trump Tower featuring Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner are connected in one way or another to a Russian-owned bank and a real estate company charged with money laundering. And that's the one thing we can conclude with certainty about what happened in that meeting, ' Browder testified. "To me, this just shows you how deep the Russians are into our democracy and if you are Republican and you are Democrat, if you don't get...the point I was trying to make, it's a risky mistake because they are trying to screw up our elections and our democracy on both sides of the aisle". While he said nothing of value came from the meeting, Veselnitskaya is best known for her effort to repeal the the legislation, and her representation of the companies that Bill Browder has accused of stealing from him. Will they listen? If he has to provide USA intelligence to them, which is standard practice, will they believe it after he has repeatedly said he is not convinced that that Russians interfered in the 2016 elections? "They wouldn't have gone in and said please, can you repeal this for us, without having something to offer in return".

Notorious 86-Year-Old International Thief Doris Payne Arrested Again
When asked about her exploits in a 2016 interview with the Associated Press, she said simply: "I was a thief". Payne was most recently accused of stealing a $2,000 diamond necklace from a store at Perimeter Mall .

"So they're trying to play both sides against the middle and I hope the country wakes up to the threat Russian Federation presents to us all". "It affects Putin's money", Browder said. Lindsey Graham asked, "You believe that Fusion GPS should of registered under FARA, because they were acting on the behalf of the Russians?"

The Russian lawyer who held a controversial meeting with President Donald Trump's son as his father campaigned in last year's election had represented Russia's main intelligence agency in a long-running property dispute, court documents show.

Like seeing Ivanka Trump taking her father's seat at a G-20 meeting with world leaders, instead of a member of the administration confirmed by the Senate, and Kushner being in charge of nearly everything in this administration. In fact, she has denied having anything to do with the Kremlin, but the fact that she once represented interests of the court may raise numerous eyebrows, especially among USA politicians.
