Liars lie.....It's What They DOOOOOOooooooooooo.....Magnitsky Legislation Update

UPDATED:  October 24, 2017...seems like this story has hit the fan.  Here is another update from RT where Russia is "suggesting" that the United States check to see whether Browder has been defrauding the IRS...as it has the Russian Federation Tax Agency.  Hmmmmmmm.
In a same day update, Bill Browder has been allowed to enter the United States...here is the story from the CBC.  Here is the same story from the Globe and Mail...so many lies...so little time.

American-born Putin critic blocked from U.S. after lobbying Canada

Businessman advocating for sanctions against Russian officials says he's now on Interpol watch-list

American lawmakers are demanding answers from their national government after a U.S.-born foe of Vladimir Putin was allegedly denied entry into the United States.
Bill Browder, who is now a British citizen, had just successfully lobbied Canada to become the latest country to adopt a so-called Magnitsky law that targets corrupt officials of the Putin regime. He is accusing the Russian government of retaliating by placing his name on an Interpol watch-list.
"United (Airlines) wouldn't let me board a flight," Browder tweeted Monday. "Unless Interpol lifts this notice, I will be arrested at any international border I cross on Putin's orders."
The developments are the latest twist in a dark saga involving him and the Russian leader.
Browder was a major hedge-fund manager in Russia who complained about oligarchs stealing from companies he'd invested in. Initially, in the early 2000s, Putin was his ally — Browder's complaints about corruption would be followed by arrests.
The arrests stopped. Browder accuses Putin of becoming personally involved in corruption schemes, building a massive multibillion-dollar fortune, and turning on him.
A crusading young lawyer working to investigate corruption for him, Sergei Magnitsky, was suddenly arrested by some of the very people he'd investigated. He was beaten repeatedly in prison and eventually died.

Browder has since made it his life's mission to avenge his friend's death. He has succeeded in getting several countries to pass laws in Magnitsky's honour. Canada adopted its law a few days ago.
The Canadian law allows authorities to block financial services for foreigners complicit in extrajudicial killings, torture, or other human-rights violations in efforts to protect a government that abuses basic rights.
Putin angrily responded to a similar law in the U.S. by stopping adoptions of Russian orphans. The issue has been brought up at the highest levels. The White House says U.S. President Donald Trump's son, son-in-law, and campaign manager discussed it with a Russian lawyer last year at Trump Tower.
Browder says he's often been the victim of Russian attempts to get him placed on Interpol wanted lists and says that this time he's been accused of murder — of killing his friend Magnitsky.
He told CBC's As It Happens on Monday that he believes the passage of the Canadian law prompted Russia to have him added to the Interpol list.
"Vladimir Putin gave a speech in which he was very angry about the Magnitsky Act, very angry at me personally and, on the same day, effectively, they went to Interpol," Brodwer said. "So I think their request of Interpol is a direct result of the Magnitsky Act being passed in Canada."

American lawmakers from both parties are demanding answers. Sen. John McCain called Browder a champion of anti-corruption fighters in Russia and called for an immediate U.S. review of his status.
"We relied on his expertise and support as we led the effort to pass the Magnitsky Act," McCain said in a statement.
"Mr. Browder's work has helped to remove corrupt actors from our financial system and enhance accountability measures with respect to the U.S. relationship with the Russian Federation — it would be unfortunate if the U.S. decided to bar him based on a decision by those same Russian officials who have been targeted by this important legislation."
It's unclear how his travel was denied.
Browder said he had an electronic document allowing travel from visa-free countries, via the Electronic System for Travel Authorization. In a statement, the U.S. State Department said, "We have no record of this individual ever applying for a U.S. visa."
The statement noted that many United Kingdom citizens are eligible to travel via the visa waiver, but if they lose eligibility to use the visa-waiver program they must apply for a visa at a U.S. consulate or embassy.​

lol, it looks like I had to bold in red almost the entire CBC report...so polluted with lies it is.  Those of you who read my original post will recognize that almost the entire CBC report is a tissue of lies.  I love the part where Browder blames Interpol for him not being able to travel to the US.  The fact of the matter is that it was Interpol which saved his sorry ass after he was convicted of fraud and embezzlement in Russia and sentenced to nine years in prisonInterpol refused to arrest him....as is customary when fugitives flee justice by putting International borders between themselves and the long arm of the law. You and I wouldn't be able to get away with it...but apparently Browder is an old hand at bribing judges and other officials in the police/judicial system.

When I read in the linked source document put in the comments of the previous post by blogger Penny of Penny for your thoughts and learned that Magnitsky was not a lawyer (as is claimed in the above CBC report) but was an auditor who did Browder's dirty work...and that the Russian prosecutors had, in their evidence dossier, Magnitsky's own handwriting laying out the systemic tax fraud that Browder was accused of...I knew that my Canadian Prime Minister was even more of a dupe than I had originally surmised.  I had a palm to face moment when I read that.

C'mon, CBC and Canadian Government...stop being such benighted rubes...wake up!  You've been had by a lifetime fraudster...booted out of Russia...and welcomed by USrael with open arms!

I used to follow the CBC religiously . Not any more .I quit watching television , unless it is showing a good documentary and during the radio news which my spouse listens to ,I find myself cringing as the lies are spouted out.What a mess of reporting/reporters we have in the Western world ,including from our very own state sponsored Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Hi RBTL

Like you, I grew up watching CBC TV and listening to CBC radio. I remember the first time I became aware how slanted the "reporting" was. Remember that open line radio show called "Cross Country Check-up"? I was listening to that and a Canadian phoned in and asked the moderator to guess "what country in the world had the most coverage, minutes-wise, on the news." The answer was Israel. It had way more minutes per evening news broadcast than any other country in the world. The listener asked the moderator why that was. No conclusive answer was given...but it sure got ME thinking....and, as they say, the rest is history.

Yes greencrow I noticed the same thing a number of years ago and you very seldom, if ever , have interviews with anyone that is pro Palestinian or even just plain unbiased when it comes to the Middle East .And now we have this bull$hit 24/7 of Russian meddling .The only meddling that the Russians are doing is getting rid of the terrorists that have been sponsored ,bought and paid for, by the West and cleaning up the vermin in Syria.\
Cheers.
