Netflix Misses Q3 Subscriber Forecast, Stock Falls
"In the past twelve months shares of Netflix are up more than two hundred percent so. Forgive me for not wringing my hands over the fact that shares of Netflix are down about six percent. This morning third quarter profits came in lower than expected. That said. Weakest. Subscriber growth in four years. That's I don't know. It doesn't seem like something to worry a lot about, but it certainly is noteworthy. Actually, think it's something that's kind of to be expected. So there's something called the pull forward effect, which is there's rapid growth in the first half of the year. So then the dot com steals, the subscribers would have happened in the back half of the year. So they added two point, two, million new subscribers, which is less than the three point three, million predicted. By. In total for the year, they added over twenty six million customers, which is more than they did of all of last year. So through the first nine months of twenty, twenty they've. got a point, one million members and they're on pace to add thirty, four, million users in two, thousand twenty, which will be their strongest year of growth. Aber so even though this quarter is the lowest number. Since two thousand fifteen if you kind of zoom out look at the big picture, they're going to to almost two hundred million customers in total, which if you're going to compare it to Disney sixty point, five, million subscribers who has about thirty million. So it's still by and large the most popular. Streaming site. Did Not get a chance to listen to the conference call. Do you know the extent to which management game guidance on production schedule because that's certainly we certainly seen that in the traditional movie? Industry, of Television as well to a lesser degree, but we've seen a lot of movies just stopped production altogether. Did they give any guidance on their own pipeline? They did. So they finish fifty projects since the initial shutdown and they will release more programs next year in twenty twenty, one minute didn't twenty twenty. They are returning to production mainly in Europe and in Asia not as much. So in the US, they're currently filming season for of Stranger things they're filming red notice which I don't know if that's based on the book by Bill. Browder. But if it is, I'm excited to watch it. They're filming season two of the witcher. So they seem that they are both finishing filming finishing production and filming and re ramping filming outside of the US. One of the things I did know Yeah. The headline is a subscriber growth in four years their subscriber growth in the Asia Pacific region was really strong this last quarter. Yeah, it was the largest contributor to paid membership growth. So it was forty six percent of the global paid net ads. So I think that that's an interesting kind of problem or gift that they have is they now have such a global subscriber base. So you have to see shows that are in English, and then you have to see shows that are in different languages and you have to see show that widely appeal like I don't know if you watched Indian matchmaking but that was an interesting show that appealed to. I think you know I'm not watching a match making show I heard a plus reviews my sister really liked it. But I think that that's an interesting kind of experiment and you see that it was very popular in India but it was also super popular in the US trying to figure out how they can get shows and movies that have that wide appeal while also focusing on those knee shows as well that do really well like the umbrella academy or the Social Dilemma the documentary that came out.
Russian activist Alexei Navalny in coma after suspected poisoning
"Leader Alexei Navalny is in a coma after being poisoned by a tox toxic tea. Financier Bill Browder believes Navalny was poisoned because of what's happening in Belarus. Lukashenko has been there for 26 years and all of a sudden out of nowhere.

"Regime commits murders. They do it in country. They do it outside the country. They do financial crimes criminal enterprise. And so it's effectively by allowing Russia to be a member of INTERPOL, you're allowing criminals to have access to your information. I'm Benjamin witness. And this is the law fair podcast, March sixteenth two thousand nineteen Bill Browder human rights campaigner fo of Ladimir Putin seems to get arrested whenever he travels abroad as a result of red notices and diffusion orders issued by Vladimir Putin through the INTERPOL police organization. These incidents have highlighted the abusive INTERPOL via thar, -tarian governments. And they raise a really important question. Should we be participating in an international police organization with governments that use that organization to harass and arrest their enemies on the show today, we have to really thoughtful people on this subject with somewhat different points of view, although a lot of common ground Bill Browder himself along with Jay, go Russell. The head of an organization called fair trials which has worked to reform INTERPOL and make it less susceptible to abuse. Bill argues for kicking the bums out having police cooperation only between countries that observe civilized norms of law enforcement. Jay, go makes the case for mending not ending an inclusive international police organization, it's a great discussion of a complicated issue. And it's our four hundred episode whether it's really are four hundred episode. We don't know, but we're calling it episode four hundred it's the law fair podcast episode four hundred Woohoo, Bill Browder and Jay go Russell debate INTERPOL, and authoritarian governments. So guys I want to start by just having you both lay out the parameters of the dispute what is agreed upon between you and what is not. Agreed upon so Bill give us the case against INTERPOL. And what is you know, what is the problem here? And then Alaska Jay, go to sort of give us which part of that he agrees with and which part of that he thinks is incorrect so INTERPOL is the international police organisation. It's inferior a quite useful and and positive contribution to society because the main purpose is to catch fugitives. If somebody let's say commits a crime in the United States, and then flees to Canada INTERPOL is supposed to catch them as they crossed the border or do various other types of things. And so it's a way for von force -ment to work together. Internationally to catch bad guys. The problem is that every country in the world, minus one or two is a member of INTERPOL and not every country in the world. Has the same standards of rule of law decency and honesty as as other country. And so I have a lot of personal experience with this. Because I have over the years become one of the prime enemies of Ladimir Putin. I became his enemy after my lawyer. Sergei Magnitsky was murdered. And I spent the next few years fighting for Justice for him, which led to something called the Magnitsky act, which Putin hates more than anything in retaliation for that. Vladimir Putin has used Interpal we're coming up now to the seventh time where they've tried to use the INTERPOL arrest warrant system, and there's several different types of restaurants show. Go into a second to have me arrested and INTERPOL in theory has a safeguard against this. I say in theory, which is a constitution, which says that countries shouldn't use inner bowl to arrest political opponents or. People for religious reasons or for military reasons, and Mike has been clearly defined as a political persecution case Vladimir Putin is clearly out to get me because of what I've done with the Magnitsky act..

"Relationship with Russia continues to cause concern. And right now, we're getting insight from the man who was the real reason behind the infamous Trump Tower meeting and has spent the last decade of his life trying to avoid getting killed by Vladimir Putin. Please welcome the head of global Magnitsky Justice campaign, my friend, Bill Browder high. You don't own your story. You were a fierce partner in fighting corruption with my father, you were the head of the largest foreign investor in Russia, and you were giving you a vocal supporter of Putin at the time. And then everything changed can you explain to the audience why you are bladder Putin's number one enemy. What happened was? I went out to Russia sort an investment fund. I discovered that everything was corrupt out there. I wanted to stop the corruption of the companies I invested in I expose it. And guess what I exposed Putin and all of his guys and they didn't take too kindly to that. They expelled me from the country. They raided my offices. They seized all of our documents. And then they arrested tortured and murdered. My lawyer Sergei madness game. Which is how we got the Sergei Magnitsky though that I got from my father. I, you know, I think he understanding is that the Russia and Putin was basically using the United States as a slush fund, correct? Well, basically what? So what Putin does is? He does terrible financial crimes like the one that that Magnitsky exposed. He he does. And he doesn't all over the place, and he's got all his guys doing it. And it's a whole corrupt system. They take all this money, and they don't want to keep it in Russia because as easy as they stole it, it could be stolen from them. And so they put it in US banks and in London banks and in Swiss banks, and one of the things that Putin is scared. Most of all is having that money taken away it you'd probably when you hate sends the checks, so he sends all this money. All these guys send the money tonight's as they put it in real estate here if they put it in real estate, they put it in Bank accounts. They put an hedge fund and somebody has to launder that money right because it's really not taxed so there's a the the worst thing is that there's a whole industry of people with nice, suits and good accents. And well, educated schools everything. That launder the money and take the money, and and and give them a, wink and say, don't worry Blad. Your money is going to be safe with us. It was your name that was brought up in the infamous Trump Tower meeting. It was also your name that was brought up in Helsinki at that press conference. Putin is obsessed with you. I mean, he brings up your name every chance he gets. And then President Trump even called the idea of giving you over to the Russians he called it an incredible offer. Isn't that Helsinki press conference? What's going through your mind when you heard the United States say that it was incredible offer to give you up to the Russians. Well, so I'm sitting there and Vladimir Putin has been going after me for ten years. I they they made death threats kidnapping threats. They tried to arrest me through INTERPOL. They've done all this stuff. And I'm sitting there, and I was in the United States at the time that that that that the Helsinki summit was going on. And I thought to myself this guy is about President Trump is either very stupid not having been been briefed about my story. Because my my story is is all over the place. Or there's something something wrong in his head. Because to hand me over to the Russians is about the worst thing scared that that could have happened. Well, you know, I think that he says a lot of really dumb stuff, but but but the system in America still works, and I didn't think that the department of Justice or the US courts would have handed me over to the Russians. But but the fact that he said that was was was pretty unnerving..

"This is the time to do it. I mean, I remember joy you were pretty upset when Al Franken stepped down. And I think the Democrats wanted to take the moral high ground, and he did it getting to get that if they get anywhere with it. Right. But Republicans now with this. I think could make such a significant statement by forcing him to resign, but will Republicans now step up to the plate with Donald Trump because he has been using I think the border wall as sort of this dog whistle for racism, but. Government is still shut down. And I think it's all about let's not let all these Brown people in right, unless they're working for farmers unless they're working in agriculture. So now will the Republican party step up to him and say, we don't want any there. There's forty two percent of this country. That's worth the wall. Are they all racist? That's a good question. I'm not that. I don't think. So I don't think so I believe in Donald Trump races. Doc. I'm trying to say. If you're if you're going to paint, a broad stroke about a wall and that being racist than I know. But there are people that support to wellbeing Bill is Donald Trump races. There are a lot of web about there are a lot of people's support that well when I think when you blanket, I think this is the problem with identity politics in the country, which is something we sort of touched on yesterday's when you broad stroke, everyone, all black people think one thing people think one thing or publicans think one thing that's how we got ourselves into this mess, and I'm one of the people that would like to help pull ourselves out of it flits focus on Steve king. I'm happy to talk about the wall and border. And we talk about Trump still will Trump, by the way, I think I have made myself quite clear how I feel about President Trump. How I feel about the America. That was always great before he came to it. I think I have made myself explicitly clear on this show and other places. So please don't paint me just because I'm for border security that is somehow racist in some way or another because I don't think that's fair. I'm against the wall letting up being accepted, I'm for strong border security. I would like to say kings language is important. He said, white nationalist white supremacists. Western civilization. How did that language become offensive? This is very clear. It's very clear racist language from congressman king. So when I think that is what I'm just saying when we broad stroke, everyone, I would like our show, and I've said this many times to be above that to be above broad stroking people into different. We all. It's. Put with forty two percent of Americans are racist. Aren't just said. I don't know. That's the question. Aqap G rating on his racist concentrating. Stop dom. Anything that's happening now because by talknet just make one small time. Point point is that I don't think that we concentrate on Steve king. There's always racist. I only that because it's the topic thing on eight o'clock. I'm not done. What you did just call forty two percent of the country. There was an implication that they could be racist. Which is something that obviously when you're talking about Republicans in general that is obviously something that's going make. I on the platform, not the person. I am John McCain of daughter, I am not someone who sits her and is okay with racism. Daughter. Murga? We'll be right back. Leader, Donald bids.

She wrote it's all about the Magnitsky act. It'll be a good primer to the conversation. We're about to have with the guy who helped write the Magnitsky act, please mind, the sound quality and episode to we have some corrections from last week in the ongoing saga of how to pronounce Herman German cons name.

And I know that and I always confuse those two things, and I I always mix them up. Sorry about that good looking out. Also, I thought about conduct discharge was worse than a dishonorable discharge, but it's the other way around dishonorable discharges or for like, murder and rape and shit like that. Wow. And to the women who bristle when I call myself old because I'm forty four. I know it's not old. But my feelings about myself are not a referendum on you. I'm very aware that forty four is not old. Although it's relative, right? I thought I wasn't gonna make it pass thirty. So and I do understand we're trying to smash the patriarchy here. And that includes not feeling old. We're not but. But as a woman, I like to declare how I feel when I wanted to clear it, and in no way, do I imply that my feelings apply to you. Sometimes I feel that way. I know that you guys and your twenties. Sometimes you're like, I'm so old. You know, that is in no way saying that people who are age or older or younger are old. You know? That's this isn't on you. It's on me. Yeah.

Under fire Danske Bank faces fresh money laundering inquiry
"Power of these tech companies. Now you bring up the fact that they're becoming a media company. And of course we had AT and t. Time Warner merger which included CNN and of what the judge said in his ruling was looking at the outsized power of these companies in the digital advertising space. You see that response, but is regulation. The right strategy are finds the right strategy is any of that going to make a difference when you consider how large the market capitalization of these four or five companies are. So when you have a company like Google with one hundred billion dollars in cash and you find five billion dollars, what you're actively telling Google to do is to continue to break the law. If you had a parking meter in front of your house, that cost one hundred dollars an hour, but the ticket was twenty five cents. You would continue to break the law and that's what we've been telling these companies to do with fines. That might sound large dollar terms, but in terms of impact aren't that large, you ask what we should do. I believe regulation has unintended consequences. I think GDP are has actually emboli. And strengthen these companies position. I believe that the future to oxygen eight, the marketplace is to break these guys up. I think antitrust action is the way to go that there is a real risk of that. Now, I know that the US attorney general Jeff Sessions having a meeting with states attorneys generals next week to discuss this very topic restarting to hear that word, antitrust rebates starting to hear the word monopoly associated with some of these companies. Is that a growing regulatory risk for these mega tech companies? Could you actually see them getting broken up? I used to think there was no way because Amazon is eighty eight fulltime lobbyists in DC. We in the US I would say suffer a little bit from what I call this gross idolatry of innovators and billionaires. We see them as our heroes, but I do think there is a movement of foot now, whether it happens out of DC, I would say most likely, no. I think the pushback is gonna come out of Brussels and possibly a red state. We're an attorney general in that state's he's at the brightest blue line path. The governor's mansion is to make an argument against these tech. Companies to quite frankly probably haven't been good. Have they been going for California? Yes, New York s? Has it been good for Kansas? What's happened to the ad agencies? The retailers, the businesses in those states. I think a lot of these red states have decided, you know, big tech it. We've been net losers here, so I don't think it's going to come out at DC at might the DOJ should absolutely do its job. The call to restrain. The acquisition of this company was read in comparison to the power of these other companies. So I actually do believe there's there is a non zero probability now that the DOJ or the FTC or a state AG Michael after these companies and accused him of anticompetitive behavior and propose antitrust and breaking up as a solution. It's an interesting paradox because you have Amazon yet to announce the second location for its headquarters, and you have, you know, local mayors and governors of morning Amazon at the same time. You see it coming under increasing potential enemy trust scrutiny and other bad headlines following it as well. Do you. You see public opinion changing at all toward the power of these big tough tech companies. While at the same time, we're also dependent on the warm is absolutely turned two years ago. The only argument was is more Christ. Like we're going to be the next president among their see is really the weaponization of the Facebook platform by the GRU of the Russian government changed everything. And now. Oh, citizens. Citizens have are starting to feel a lot more wary about these firms, but you brought up an interesting point the competition to be the host of the next age. Q. and regulation are linked Stephanie because the next headquarters for Amazon will be Washington DC, the metro area, and the reason why, and it was always going to be DC is one the basis have a home there, and CEO gets to pick with a company. Second headquarters are going to be. And so the only thing standing in between Amazon, Amazon's valuation of one trillion in two trillion is regulation, and no one is going to regulate the individual. The throws out the first pitch at the two thousand nineteen opening game of the Washington nationals which will be Jeff Bezos. This competition was a Reuss to transfer wealth from fire departments and school departments to this shareholders of Amazon. It was always going to be DC. This has been a terrible abuse of the Commonwealth. And how many lobbyists does Amazon have in DC right now. Last check Eighty-eight fulltime lobbyists in DC, Scott Galloway. We're gonna have to see if you're right on that. It's going to be embarrassing of announce big Indianapolis. Well, DC could certainly use the jobs, Scott. Thank you so much. Thank you.

And the reason is the Magnitsky act named for Browder former accountant and attorney said of gay Magnitsky who exposed rampant corruption in the Russian government and was later killed in the custody, a Russian officials. Browder spearheaded an effort that's become law in the US and and other countries around the world call the Magnitsky act to punish Russia with sanctions for the activity that led to set a gay Magnitsky's death for that. He says, he's become number one on ladder. MIR Putin's most wanted list and. Fact, Russia's prosecutor general said though Browder will not be able to sleep at night. They've gone through extensive efforts to get him in custody using the INTERPOL red notice system to try to track down. They've done it five times and when this program was taped in late June, but never podcast Browder told us Russia had just attempted for the sixth time to use INTERPOL to capture him. This program is all about the harrowing details that happened during that particular situation. Here's our conversation Bill. It looks as though, as you said on numerous occasions, the Russians are continuing to hound you and I saw comment from the Russian prosecutor general staying something to the effect that they're not going to let you rest. So tell us about the knock at your door in your your Madrid hotel room on that Wednesday morning. So About about three three weeks. weeks ago. I was in MADRID, Spain. I was there to meet with the chief Spanish prosecutor in charge of prosecuting, Russian, organized crime. And I, we have discovered evidence that the money that had been stolen from Russia that my lawyer Sergei Magnitsky had discovered and exposed was killed over had gone to Spain. And so I was sharing that information with the prosecutor. There's about thirty million euros a gun to Spain. I had an appointment with the prosecutor at eleven AM in the morning on the thirtieth of may am in my hotel room in Madrid, and at at about nine forty in the morning, there's nothing my door. I opened the door and the general manager of the hotel is standing there with two uniform police officers. And I, they asked me for my identification. I show them my ID. They compare it with a piece of paper..

"What? What was your reaction in the moment? Well, I had two different reactions. My reaction to Putin was this is not surprising. This is like the fifth time he's he's mentioned me in public. The thing that I did find a little surprising in a little upsetting was the fact that Trump didn't shoot him down right there. And then and said, that's ridiculous. We're not gonna do that far from it. He made reference to something being an incredible offer. What did you understand Trump was referring to when he said, incredible offer. So the the trade was Putin said, okay, Muller is indicted. These twelve GRU agents will give Muller access to those agents in return. We would like to have access to Bill Browder and a bunch of American. Government officials and intelligence officers who we believe or part of the Bill Browder criminal group. That was the incredible offer that was being proposed and to add insult injury. When this was then discussed at a press conference with Sarah Huckabee sunders a few days later the the New York Times Astor. Well, are you gonna do that deal? They? And she said, well, we're considering it have no announcement on that at his moment. Separate apart from you. The implications of such a thing go far beyond you and bathroom fall and others. It means basically that this administration, at least for while made it appear that maybe it's still true made it appear that they would consider swaps of American citizens and perhaps UK citizens like you are to a a murderous thuggish regime based on no evidence. What do you make that? Well, I mean, it's it's is a portent. It's it's unbelievable. I mean, it's it's beyond beyond anything I could ever match. And now I never believed that it would actually go through even if he wanted to because the rule of law in the United States on so many different levels would prevent, but the fact that he thought it was a good idea and the fact that he didn't reject it outright was quite disturbing in terms of his own judgment about this whole thing. I mean, the most important condemnation of that came the next day when the Senate voted unanimously ninety eight zero to reject this this offer, they don't vote unanimously on anything anymore. So I ask you this question last time. I know you've been ASA lot. How much do you worry about your own personal safety and has at worry increased or remained constant over time? The perception is that that my risk has gone up. The reality is the my risk is always been high. I've known for a long time how infuriated Putin is with me and how much I've gotten under his skin. And and so I've been at in sort of danger zone for a long time now and and there've been lots of different incidents where they've tried to get me in different. As and I don't feel more endanger in in a certain way, I'm less endangered by the fact that Putin is being so public about it because it's limits some of their opportunities because everyone will know Putin did it, but doesn't stop him from trying to get me the most aggressive ways try to get me or through extradition in in INTERPOL as opposed to just knock me off on the street because if they can get me back to Russia than they can kill me quite easily with full plausible deniability. Whereas how important? I'm sorry, when you say plausible deniability, you believe that Latimer Putin attempted to kill Sergei's people in the UK. Correct? I do, yes. And lots of people believe that to be true, right? Yep. And he must have known. And so Paul was someone who acted in in a intelligence capacity and who's one of the people traded for the the ten spies at my office prosecuted back in two thousand ten. And Putin would have to know that if someone likes her gay scruple was assassinated under suspicious circumstances in the United Kingdom that blame would fall on him. Right. Do you think he cares or not? How important is a plausible deniability really? Well, I think that that he thought he could get away with it the same way as they thought they could get away with Litvinenko's murder the one, the person who's murdered in London using polonium to ten. I don't think that he thought that they would find out what the compound was and be able to densify and then identified back to Russia. And so what Putin hates more than anything are consequences. He likes to do things. We're Rick innovate..

"This is the Bill Browder sequel, thanks for being with us greater beer. So I, I will say we had you on the show many months ago and the news about Russia and the news about you in the news about the Magnitsky act has only gotten more important. And the other thing I wanted to tell you is I I don't think there was another episode that we've done to the show that resonated more with with listeners. I can't tell you how many people have said to me how much they appreciate the education that you gave them about Sergei Magnitsky in about all the guards in Russia and about Putin and his conduct. So I wanna thank you again for for coming on and telling the story most been my pleasure, and thank you for highlighting the story because it's just so important that everybody knows what's really going on with Magnitsky in Putin and how this forms a crucial part of the whole geopolitics of Russia right now for those, you know, three or four people in the globe that are listening now, but who didn't listen. The first episode can you do like a like a ninety? Second summary of who Sergei Magnitsky was why he was important and what the law does that you've helped pass in multiple countries. Society gaming. Nikki was my lawyer in Russia. Sergei discovered a massive Putin crony corruption scheme where they were stealing two hundred thirty million dollars of taxes that I had paid to the Russian government from the Russian government. Sergei took that information as as a Russian patriot, he exposed it. He testified against the corrupt officials involved in instead of treating him as a hero, the Russian government arrested him. They put him in pretrial detention. They tortured him for three hundred fifty eight days and they killed, sir, gaming ski on November sixteenth two thousand nine at the age of thirty seven. And since then I've been on a mission to get Justice for Sergei. Which resulted in something named after Sergei call the Magnitsky act, which is a piece of legislation I passed in the United States in two thousand twelve, which imposes visa sanctions and asset freezes on the people who killed Sergei ski in the people who do similar types of human rights abuses in Russia and bladder Putin really hates that because Latimer Putin is a man who does human rights abuses, and he has a lot of assets in the west, including the United States needs, though you put his assets at how much I estimate he's worth two hundred billion dollars, which makes him the richest man in the world. And in order to keep that money safe, he doesn't keep it in Russia. He keeps it in American banks, British banks in real estate in Switzerland and France, and other places, and he feels any. He's right to feel this way. He feels vulnerable because his money may end up getting seized in frozen. And that's been that's been the objective of Mike. Campaign and I believe in he has his own behavior, demonstrates it that we found his achilles heel, which is this, which is the Magnitsky act. Certainly, he's only hate your guts. He does. Would we'll talk about any mentioned you by name whenever he whenever you can. But this I, I wanted I wanted to explore more on how successful campaign has been on the Magnitsky exit would pass in the United States by an overwhelming margin, how many countries now have some version of the Magnitsky act. So the Magnus Gant pass on December fourteenth. Two thousand twelve rush, say signed into law December fourteenth, two thousand twelve in the United States under Obama passed ninety two to four in the Senate eighty nine percent of the house of representatives. We then got Canada to impose their version of the Magnitsky act and that passed unanimously in in their house of Commons and unanimously in their Senate and became law in Tober of a two thousand seventeen. We then ended up with with Wayne Latvia Estonia. NIA and most recently Britain United Kingdom a along with Gibraltar. And so there's no seven countries that have Magnitski axe. And as of right now, there are nine countries parliaments that are now debating and introducing Magnitsky act. That includes a number of countries, Europe, France, Germany, Sweden, Denmark Holland than we have a stray Leah, which is which got something cooking South Africa Ukraine in just two days ago. Moldova without any intervention. For me. The Moldovan parliament introduced a Magnitsky act, so there's nine countries on deck..

"You either revealed it or you didn't in questions as to whether or not you had a reason not to reveal it or you didn't know you have to reveal it. I don't take a lot of witness testimony to get to. You're gonna see, I think as you as you read the news some fireworks probably with respect to the testimony of Rick gates regain its was one of Paul manafort's right hand men both in the campaign also at their lobbying business. He you will recall was charged at the same time the Paul Manafort was, but regains flipped an issue. We talk about a lot in the show and decided in hopes of future leniency from judge to testify against Paul Manafort in opening statements yesterday predictably the defense lawyer for Paul Manafort decided to do what defense lawyers do, which is attack the cooperating witness as a liar as someone who's trying to save his own skin. And we'll see if it works. My prediction is not because it sounds like Rick gates will be very, very corroborated by documentary evidence in his sort of there to tell the story. But we'll see when he testifies. One last point on Paul Manafort and how he's been treated as we talked about on the podcast. I think a couple of weeks ago he's been treated very well considering that he violated the terms of his release, even though he's been remanded to custody, he had a lot of occasion to meet with his lawyers. He had a laptop he himself by his own admission so that he was treated like VIP in jail. Notwithstanding any of that Donald Trump decide to another trial because why not? What else does he have to do and tweeted a little while ago this morning, quote, looking back on history who is treated worse Alfonse Capone easing the whole name, legendary mob boss, killer and public enemy number one, or Paul Manafort political operative and Reagan dole darling now serving solitary confinement, although convicted of nothing, whereas the Russian collusion, that's a mishmash of non sequiturs. The make absolutely no sense at all. When Donald Trump says, looking back on history, he should maybe try that before tweeting about criminal defendants. This is narrow and I'm calling from New York, and I heard lots of journalists on television and radio who just not we incitement with comedown especially about the Russian, no more radio goes those. Thank you. Thanks Meryl. And I think, look, it's a really good point. I think that if you really want to understand what's going on, it's fine to listen to a podcast, it's fine. Listen to the pundits on television, but you really get a feel for what's going on in detail rather than sound bite by reading the documents themselves. And by the way, many of these documents rashly very well written until a story is not just all legal terms and jargon in it's well worth your time to look at them typically because we're in the age of the internet. Anytime you see a story pop up about a new indictment or a guilty plea or some other such development in the investigation. Usually in the typical New York Times article or Wall Street Journal article or Washington Post article, there's a link to the da. Argument, but I would also like to put in a plug for a very good friend, Ben witness and his law, fair blog. If you go a law, fair blog dot com. The commentary on that site is usually excellent initially, pretty quick and deeper than what you see in mainstream newspapers, and they will also have the documents that you can read directly. Guest this week is Bill Browder. He first came on the show in October to talk about the murder of his lawyer. Sergei Magnitsky what Bill has done to seek Justice for his friend since that time a A lot's lot's happened. happened at the recent Helsinki summit Vladimir Putin specifically and personally asked for built be handed over to Russia, a request that President Trump called an incredible offer.

"From cafe. Welcome to stay tuned. I'm Prete Berar. When the full weight and force of the United States ultimately comes down on Russia. It's going to be devastating, and it may not come while Trump is president. Maybe it does, but it will come because that's the way everybody else feels. That's Bill Browder, an activist and campaigner for Justice in Russia. Since we first spoke in October Latimer Putin called him out by name at the l. Zinke summit Bill is back to talk about Putin's personal attacks and President Trump's flirtation with handing over Bill and other Americans to the Russian regime. This is a good one folks. But first, let's get to your questions. So we're taping this cue a lunchtime on Wednesday, August first. And the first question comes in the wake of a tweet Donald Trump sent just a little while ago as I was coming to the studio. This is what the president of the United States tweeted. Just now quote, this is a terrible situation and attorney general Jeff Sessions should stop this rigged witch-hunt right now before it continues to stain our country. Any further. Bob Muller is totally conflicted and his seventeen angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA exclamation Mark. So that's the president of the United States saying in a tweet that attorney general Jeff Sessions should stop this rigged, which hunt right now. And the question from Twitter user at indivisible Mitch is, is that tweet obstruction of Justice. So a lot of people are asking that question and that's reasonable. Given how sort of even more extreme than usual Donald Trump's tweet is he's literally saying on his favorite social media platform that the train. Stop the rig which on. So if you have survey about it before I get to the question of whether or not that for by itself or in combination with other things is obstruction. First of all, attorney general Jeff Sessions is recused from the Russia investigation, so it should not be up to him to decide to stop it or not or interfere with it in any way. The other say about the irony of the tweet is the basis on which Donald Trump says, at least in this social media post that the investigation to be down is based on Bob Muller's alleged conflict. So on the one hand, he doesn't believe Jeff Sessions should be recused, and then he should be able to shut down the investigation on the other hand based on, I think not very good reasoning and just generalized anger about the investigation. He thinks Bob Muller is conflicted and should be recused and should be allowed to continue..

On behalf of the on behalf, of Russia to push back the Magnitsky act which was sanctioning these Russian oligarchs who were these shady Russian dudes who were completely responsible for the death of Sergei Magnitsky so these are. Things that you're that you need to know if you're going to engage in a conversation on this issue and you wanna talk about. Quote unquote collusion because that. Wasn't just, collusion, that was conspiracy. And I, will say this there are people out there who are completely fine with using political grievances and differences in opinion to then take gutter garbage and substantiate wiretaps and surveillance on private citizens simply because. You are, dissatisfied and, angry that they oppose you politically You better pray that no one like me gets in the White House because I will admit I'm a. Tyrant this is, why there are better people.

President and Vladimir Putin, but also what I. Keep hearing from a number. Of of of there were, reporters that we're talking about it because Russia apparently made overtures wanting to question Bill Browder. Which I think is, a horrible idea, Hillary Clinton. Would have, given him up because Bill Browder was an enemy of the, firm that she had hired. Two two and she was working with Russians, to get to it so that they could spy on. Fellow Americans, who opposed her politically that is an indisputable fact you can argue it except, there's actual documents there's documentation there's emails, there's all kinds of stuff that's been entered.

I appreciate you what's going on Hi Joe I appreciate you and your show I, want. To talk about the stomach so The. Russians Headlines again in three days before the summit and the AP takes And to me Like a deflection in a smokescreen because I watched the summit interview with putting in President Trump and Putin dropped, a huge bombshell which no. One is about he spoke about Bill Browder and his, associates in Russia earning a billion and. A half dollars Gary Kelly. Not paying taxes they're transferring the money. To do that it stays where they, didn't pay taxes and then they gave a four hundred million dollars donation to. Hillary Clinton campaign and so I think all the screaming and hollering on the left is nobody talks about that four hundred. Million dollars donation I just can't. Believe packing ability Well gene I gotta tell, you he could not have given four. Hundred million dollars to her. Campaign maybe he started a political action. Committee and maybe he did something third, party or win around the back door but you can't give more than a. Certain amount as an individual to somebody's campaign so what do a bit of different way but I want to go back. To what you I said though When rod. Row and I I'm saying Rosenstein it might? Be Steve I don't know that I won't say his name but One rod Rosenstein did that made this announcement of. Indictment of twelve people from the Muller probe knowing that three days later the president would be in Helsinki meeting with Putin I felt just as you felt that he was setting the president, and, not only that he was setting up the media with the kind of information it needed to be able to say well it is journalists, for me to. Ask that question, in front of a Putin Trump and the ridiculous, question, that, started, this, whole, thing today. Kerry eliminated earlier ridiculous question was will you now with the world watching tell him, blah blah blah blah blah journalistic question. That's, a question that was, loaded and formed because what Rosenstein did three days ago I think you're right on with. That I I agree on that and I also think, before hundred value needs to be look into because you're, probably right they did it through a. Pack or they did it but you helped Hillary, Clinton She. Followed, by and nobody is, ranking the union to that affect but they're making such a huge deal of this simple.
