A presentation by Susan Pfeiffer: Who Is Bill Browder and What Is the Magnitsky Act?
On 2018 July 16, following a private meeting with Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin made an extraordinary statement in response to a reporter’s question about Russian meddling in our election: Putin offered to facilitate an interrogation of the 12 newly indicted Russians by US authorities if, in return, US authorities would facilitate Russia’s interrogation of Bill Browder. Putin alleges that Browder is implicated in crimes in Russia, including a scam involving a $230 million fraudulent refund in taxes due to the Russian Federation.
Because I am a skeptic, as well as a Russia/news junkie, I had to investigate.
My research took me on a fascinating journey about greed, crime, corruption, and a massive hoax that led to the passage of the US Magnitsky Act. The Magnitsky Act was undisputedly the main topic of discussion at the now-infamous Trump Tower meeting initiated by the Russians in June 2016.
I would like to share my findings and offer internet pathways to a film and a book which have been effectively suppressed in the US and elsewhere.
The Atheist Lounge will tackle this subject on, as usual, the last Thursday of the month. Order food and drink at 7 PM, with short presentation starting about 30-45 minutes thereafter, and plenty of open discussion after that.
