Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on July 17, 2018
4:00 – The Corruption of Vladimir Putin
Bill Browder has described himself as “Putin’s No 1 enemy”. Now the Russian president had added weight to that claim by singling out the British investor at yesterday’s summit with President Trump. Putin offered to assist American investigators in their prosecution of the 12 Russian intelligence officers accused of interfering with the election; in return Russia would be allowed to question Mr. Browder, who has exposed the massive corruption that is endemic to the Russian government. We spoke with Bill a few years ago; we re-air portions of that interview today with some commentary from Al on Putin’s remarks.
