"Other side of Russia as it comes to all of the geopolitical conflicts going on in Ukraine right now. Exactly. And Putin would be very eager to fracture any alliances with a NATO. He wants to we can resolve and especially in Western Europe, where people were still dependent on Russian oil. And part of the whole Russian playbook is sowing chaos and other places. That's why you have the bot farms. That's why you have moves like this, potentially, anyway. So the U.S. has said, okay, we're not willing to, we're not willing to trade a guy we don't have. So clearly there's a line someplace that The White House has said, at least to this point, we're not going to go pressure. Essentially, we're not going to go ask Germany for him. So there's a limit to what they'll do, but they've said we're willing to trade someone like Victor boot who is 14 years into a 25 year sentence. The merchant of death, as we have called him and many have called him elsewhere, yeah. Right, although speaking to somebody in Russia, not longer they said, they feel like that's kind of an American media creation that he's not quite the folk hero over there. We've made him out to be, I don't know. Right. At arms dealer who has had a legend unto himself in literal movies at this point. Yeah, and whatever the specifics, whatever nickname you want to hang on him, there's a big difference between somebody doing a 25 year sentence for supporting terrorism and somebody who was busted with minimal amount of cannabis oil when she was entering the country.

Here in the U.S., the AP's been asking adults about climate change. The AP's done a warder with what they've told us. A new poll says many Americans don't think that what they do every day affects climate change. The poll taken in June by The Associated Press and the north center for public affairs research says Americans are less concerned about how climate change might impact them personally than they were three years ago. They're also less concerned about how their personal choices affect the climate like Indiana banker Desmond Adele. We have economic problems. We have social inequality problems. I definitely think those are a higher priority. Roughly two thirds of Americans who answered the polls say the federal government developed countries abroad and corporations and industries have a large responsibility to address climate change.

Japan is reporting 2.2% annual growth in the April to June quarter, according to preliminary government estimates released today, with private consumption jumping to 4.6%, a revised estimate for the first quarter put growth for the world's third largest economy as flat. That's an upgrade from an earlier reading of a half a point contraction. After keeping its borders closed to most travelers throughout the pandemic, Japan has slowly begun reopening to tourism. Meanwhile, business has returned more or less to normal after voluntary restrictions were eased, families are venturing out and spending more. Even as coronavirus infection rates rise.

"Who exactly is Victor bout? And why are we talking about him in relation to an American basketball player? His being for what for 12 nearly 12 years now, in jail, first in the Thai jail and then in the American jail, he has quite a few more years to serve. But and yet Andre, I'm looking at reports about him and he's been described as the merchant of death accused of selling millions of guns to armies in Africa, the Middle East, you name it. Why then would the Russian authorities with the Kremlin want him back? Has he been doing this at the behest or the allegations he's been doing this at the behest of the Kremlin? Well, not that it's necessarily at the behest, but do I think that there is enough evidence to show that he had a very powerful cover that he was helped by some very important players in Russian politics. He has been operating for many, many years out of many countries, including South Africa, Lebanon underwent the Belgium but his main base remained in Moscow. It is impossible to believe that the authorities there didn't know about the operation of this magnitude conducted under their nose. Is it felt that he would be a fair exchange for Britney greiner and the other American? Well, Victor boot has been called the most dangerous businessman in the world. And if there is any truth in it, I'm sure there is. That means that he may be swapped for two most harmless and probably totally innocent people. So of course it is not fair, but I think we can all understand the desperation of the families of those two Americans and of the American administration. So they are prepared to swap this dangerous criminal for those people. That was former BBC Russia editor Andre ossowski chatting to newsday's boller Monsieur. Reports in U.S. media reveal a possible swap deal which would see basketball player Britney griner exchanged for mister about a convicted Russian arms trafficker. Miss greiner was arrested in Moscow in February when vape cartridges containing cannabis oil which is illegal in Russia were found in her luggage. The star pleaded guilty to drug related charges, although she said she didn't intend to break any laws. This story has got lots of you talking. Rita in New Jersey, U.S. says, why would anyone want this exchange? This is no good. Let her do some time and then maybe they can find someone, but then again, they don't give anyone in prison in the U.S. for marijuana a break. Mads in Denmark thinks releasing Victor bout in the middle of a war in Ukraine is freaking dangerous. Let the Russians keep the basketball player. And ski adds huh.

"Free in home estimate. Three 11 now on WTO, Brittany griner is found guilty of drug possession and smuggling by a judge in Russia, the WNBA star was arrested back in February at a Moscow area airport after vape cartridges with less than a gram of cannabis oil were found in her luggage. The case is unfolded in mid tensions between Washington and Moscow over Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Joining us now with more WTO national security correspondent JJ green, JJ briefly sum up what happened today and what the next step could be for griner. Griner was convicted as you have mentioned on charges of drug smuggling. And she was sentenced to 9 years in prison. That's precisely what Russian prosecutors asked for. It came as no surprise because almost every trial in Russia ends up this way, favoring prosecutors. Grinders team is going to have the opportunity to appeal. They have ten days to do it. But it's not likely anything will change because the appeals process follows the same pattern, 9 out of ten proceedings go against the defense. Sean and Hillary. JJ, what does this mean for the effort to negotiate a prisoner exchange? Russia has the upper hand. They know the U.S. is trying to offer it a negotiate. Russia's ignored their offer to exchange convicted arms dealer Victor boot for griner and for marine former marine Paul Whelan. The Kremlin according to numerous sources I've spoke to, spoken to rather, want to make grinders suffer just as they have Paul Whelan sensing him to a long-term in a hard labor penal colony. But more than anything, they want to make a political point to the U.S. and that is that we, Russia, are in control. So this doesn't impact the ability for the U.S. to get a swap done at all. It just really depends on what Russia wants to do and when. JJ, what is the takeaway here for other Americans? Especially athletes who do sports in Russia. Know where you're going. Know the laws, be careful what you take with you, always watch your back. Make sure others here at home are plugged into what you're doing and where you're going. And to the degree you can keep records of your interactions with authorities and take note of what those interactions feel like. These are all some observations that I've gotten from sources law enforcement and intelligence sources that I've spoken to today. And they say, if something doesn't seem right, remember it and be sure to act on it. JJ, thanks. You're welcome. Open national security correspondent JJ green.

CBS News special report, a Russian court has sentenced Britney griner to 9 years in prison for drug smuggling. It came just after she spoke to the court. In your ruling, as it doesn't end my life here. CBS MT as taya. This image that she tried to project as somebody who cared about Russia cared about her time in Russia, perhaps more specifically that she is seriousness in which she took Russian laws saying that she knew she broke the law and that she understood she did and that is why she admitted her guilt in this case. Well, it would seem that wasn't enough for this judge.

Until the Russians agreed to exchange Brittany griner for Victor boot or somebody else of the Russians will have leverage how fast this process could CBS News special report. I'm Steve Ken. Also breaking this afternoon, the Justice Department has charged four current and former Louisville police officers involved in the deadly Breonna Taylor raid with civil rights violations. Taylor is the 26 year old black medical worker who was shot to death by Louisville officers who knocked down her door while executing a search warrant in a drug case. The charges surround falsification of that warrant. Here's attorney general Merrick Garland. We allege that the defendants knew their actions and falsifying the affidavit could create a dangerous situation, and we allege these unlawful acts resulted in miss Taylor's death. One of the former officers involved in the shooting Brett haggis was found not guilty on state charges earlier this year.

He referred to federal concerns about threats linked to local school board meetings.

"Boot. So who is Victor boot? Well, he was the world's most notorious arm smuggler, or here's how CIA director William burns put it concisely last week. For more, we're joined by N Paris Greg myrie, hey there. Hi, Mary Louise. All right, I'll put this question to you. Who is Victor boot? And how did he become this infamous arms dealer? Well, we really need to go back to the Soviet Union breakup in 1991. All this military hardware was suddenly scattered across 15 brand new countries, and it was terribly chaotic. Victor boot at that time was just in his mid 20s. He'd been trained as a linguist by the military. He saw real opportunity. He acquired Soviet military transport planes, loaded them with weapons and started selling them all over the world, Africa, Middle East, Asia. He sold a government. He sold to rebel groups. Anyone who would pay him. He became so notorious, there was a 2005 movie loosely based on his life called lord of death starring Nicolas Cage. He was finally arrested in 2008 in Thailand, extradited to the U.S., convicted in 2011, and he's been serving this 25 year sentence in Illinois. And Illinois. Now why would Vladimir Putin Russian president Vladimir Putin want him back? He has a bit of a head scratcher in some ways. I mean, he made his money, Victor boot by selling a lot of weapons that belonged to the Soviet military. So this is a question I put to Dan Hoffman. He's a former CIA officer who served in Russia and has long studied Vladimir Putin. Every opportunity he gets Vladimir Putin wants to show that he can go toe to toe with Russia's main enemy. It's a real good public relations move for him to show that he's taking care of his own. Greg, address one of the objections that's being raised about this potential deal, which is that it is uneven. Two Americans who the USS shouldn't even be detained in the first place in exchange for a major convicted arm smuggler. This is unusual. Yeah, you're right about that. I mean, there is this long history of the U.S. and Russia working out trades of sorts, but often it's been a trade of suspected spies on both sides. So it would be unusual that this is pretty asymmetric it seems. And the two Americans are basketball star, Brittany griner, who's pleaded guilty to having hashish oil in her luggage and Paul Whelan, a former ring who often traveled openly to Russia, but he was detained and convicted three years ago in a secret trial on espionage. But Dan Hoffman says, you know, there's really no alternative in cases like this. These are dirty deals, but there's two bad options. One is letting our American citizens get sick and potentially even worse in jail and the other one is make essentially as a dirty deal. If it's me, I'll get my U.S. citizens out. The backdrop to this, of course, is the ongoing war in Ukraine. What impact might this situation have on the wider U.S. Russia relationship? Well, a prisoner swap would signal that despite all this tension that the two countries can still do business at some level. But there's really no reason to think that the overall relations are going to change from this current trajectory, which is really from terrible to worse. And the main issue remains Russia's war in Ukraine where the U.S. is arming the Ukrainians and that looks increasingly like a long-term conflict.

"Let's start with some headlines from the week's news and give you some context on why they matter. First up it is clearly now the will of the parliamentary Conservative Party that there should be a new leader of that party and therefore a new prime minister. That's Boris Johnson, the prime minister of the United Kingdom, officially hanging up his hat earlier today. So what caused his Brexit? The UK prime minister has been experiencing scandal after scandal in recent months. The list includes everything from party gate, where he and his employees were caught partying and breaking COVID protocols to corruption allegations to the latest scandal. Where Johnson acknowledged that despite knowing about sexual misconduct allegations against a fellow Conservative Party member, Johnson appointed him to a senior position anyways. And earlier this week, over 50 officials aids in cabinet members quit. Saying they could no longer work under Johnson's leadership. That great resignation may have been the straw that broke the camel's back, because today Johnson announced he'd be stepping down from the role he's held for the last three years. And some analysts say it's a fitting end to a controversial legacy. Johnson was once known for advocating for and navigating the country through Brexit, and now his legacy will be tainted with these more recent personal scandals. So what's next for our Friends across the pond? Well, Johnson isn't done yet. He announced he'll stay in office until the Conservative Party chooses his successor. There are a handful of names that have been thrown in the ring so far. And next week, the government will announce a timeline for choosing the new p.m.. Okay, next headline. On Thursday, the detained WNBA star Brittany griner pleaded guilty to drug charges in Russian court. As a reminder, she's been detained in Russia since February. After officials there claimed she had cannabis oil in her luggage and accused her of smuggling a narcotic substance. In her guilty plea, griner said she had no intention of breaking the law, and that this was an accident. Grinder's detention, coincided with Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and it could last for months for the entire duration of her trial. And the spotlight is continuing to grow on her case. Earlier this week, she sent a handwritten letter to president Joe Biden. Urging him to take action on her detainment. In the letter she wrote, I'm terrified I might be here forever. And ask the president not to forget about her and the other American detainees. In response, the president gave grinder's wife sharelle a call. To reassure her that he's working on bringing grindr home. The U.S. government considers griner to be wrongfully detained, and in a new statement this week, The White House said Biden has ordered his security team to keep regular contact with both Brittany and Shirley griner. So how has Russia responded so far? The Kremlin has considered doing a prisoner swap, hinting that in exchange for grinder's release, they want Victor boot, a notorious Russian arms dealer to be released from U.S. prison. So far, the State Department has declined to comment on the possibility of a swap. As U.S. officials figure out their next move to bring griner home, calls are mounting in a public campaign to get her out ASAP. Biden has been pressured by the WNBA and more than a thousand black women leaders across various industries, who signed a letter stating that greiner's detention is an ongoing human rights crisis. Especially considering she's a gay woman, being held in a country with some of the strictest anti LGBTQ+ laws on the books. In comments to the media,

"You mentioned that too. Because we started saying this nexus between drugs and terrorism because for example the taliban some of those folks what was their favourite crop to grow to turn into hard cash. You know. yeah no. That's exactly and so. It wasn't a regrettable. You're supposed to answer that zach. The cash crop that they thought it was retort. It was a opium heroin. What is alex for two hundred dollars. Yes yeah no it is. That's how the taliban funded itself and constructed needs to fund itself today to heroin trafficking so And i think those are thoughts that went into the group being created. We started off with cases mainly in latin america but we spread off from their ultimately in group started to expand and the focus really became more than just king pennzoil's kingpins narcoterrorism in terrorism supported by narcotics trafficking and out really high level foreign government corruption. That's either directly facilitating this or at worst turning a blind blind eye out because kind of leads into the whole discussion. We're going to have about victor boot here in just a minute but before we do let let's start setting the stage because now you're getting close right to the point of for victor starts becoming your case right. You're getting pretty close at this point. Yeah will you ask what the first big case was. So that was kind of laid up explaining how we're set up. We did a case on on the farc in colombia and the the main trafficker that we invest game was a guy named that they call boy arco. his real name was Jose maria corridor bog way but for short everyone called him boy or Chatree baraka and he was. He was a really large arms. In cocaine trafficker that was sponsored given licensed by the farc to operate a certain territory in columbia and and for the folks listening to of so far. There's the spanish version. But it's the armed revolutionary forces of colombia. I mean it's the longest running. Right stephen the longest running civil war sixty years. So i mean these are bad.

"This week rob zach and his team at da. Go after victor boot. The merchant of death. He's already a wanted man at least country he he was but then the question is do the folks that have a lodge to one of them force will they actually prosecute them so a red notice for lack of a better terms like an international arrest warrant. You're basically putting the rest of the world on notice and there's a couple of different ways to do it. You can have a red notice that goes out blanket to everybody or you can do. What's called diffusion which is much more country specific so instead of telling the whole world you might know. Let's say that something's going to travel through specific country. You might only want to deal with one country to take the take away. The rest compromise either inadvertent everybody trying to good. Maybe people jump something or on the bad side. you might have places where these bad guys had infiltrated authorities. That's what they do you know they. They corrupt countries that they go to so that they're protected. Welcome.
