The Bill provides for sanctions against Russia over the death of Sergei Magnitsky. He died when he was denied medical treatment while in pre-trial detention on a tax fraud case, the Bill reported.
Dunkerley's analysis suggests the Senators were hoodwinked into supporting efforts to destabilize Russia. The Obama administration has tried to stop them. But the Senators are moving forward, perhaps oblivious to the trap they've fallen into.
Entitled "Magnitsky Bill Drags Senators into Foreign Plot," Dunkerley's report claims a similarity to the trap Congress fell into over the Alexander Litvinenko case. News reports had called Litvinenko a former KGB spy murdered on orders of Russian president Vladimir Putin. The incident was subject of a Congressional resolution condemning Russia.
But in Dunkerley's recent book on that case, he describes how the whole murder story was a media fabrication inspired by a group of foreign agitators.
