Time has this interesting article I’m Bill Browder. Here’s the Biggest Mistake Putin Made When Trying to Get Access to Me Through Trump.
Browder is the founder and CEO of Hermitage Capital Management and was the largest foreign investor in Russia until 2005. Since 2009 when his lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, died in prison after uncovering a $230 million fraud committed by Russian government officials, Browder has been leading a campaign to expose Russia’s endemic corruption and human rights abuses.
It is hard to know who is lying here, as if only one person could be lying. At least I know who this guy is now. After reading how the Russian economy was almost sunk by the corrupt Harvard University consultants until Putin stepped in to set it straight, I have always had the feeling that the oligarchs Putin was going after were the ones who tried to take Russia down. Despite that feeling, I have never assumed I actually knew if I was right or not.
Perhaps if this is out in the open, we will finally find out what’s what. Of course, it could always turn into more Russia hysteria, or maybe I might even be convinced that Putin is really as evil as some people want me to believe. The third possibility is that I will never be able to figure it out. There are some things in life that we will never know the truth about.

Jared Paquette put me on to this video. Fire up your “You know” filters and listen to this video. I’ll cut to the chase to tell you that Bill Browder is the grandson of Earl Browder. Who was Earl Browder? What is Browderism?.
