Now Russian Prosecutors Want to Question US Intel Agents
Russian prosecutors are pushing to question US intelligence agents and a former US Ambassador to Moscow in their investigation of an influential foe of Vladimir Putin.
The general prosecutor’s office made the announcement Tuesday in the wake of President Putin’s Summit Monday with US President Donald Trump.
Monday, President Putin offered to allow US investigators to question Russian military agents accused of hacking the Democratic Party and the DNC during the 2016 US election campaign. In exchange, Russia wants to question US officials suspected of involvement in alleged financial crimes by British investor Bill Browder.
Representative Alexander Kurennoi told reporters the Prosecutor’s office is preparing requests to send to the US for such interrogations.
Mr. Browder was behind a law on US sanctions against powerful Russians that was prompted by the death of a Russian lawyer investigating corruption.
