Bill Browder supported Russian President Vladimir Putin until he was shut out of the country after exposing millions of stolen tax dollars. His lawyer was beaten to death in prison. Now he's on the warpath to get countries to pass laws blacklisting Russian human rights abusers, like the United States Senate did on Dec. 6, a move that has opened a major new rift in US-Russia relations. He gives a talk at the Economic Club titled “Russia: The Failing and Mafia State" on Tuesday.
