Just how corrupt is Vladamir Putin? What is this Magnitsky Act thing I keep hearing about? Are we making too big a deal out of Russia’s role in our elections and that weird meeting between Don Jr and the Russians at Trump Tower? There’s so much news, sometimes it’s hard to get a grasp on how the various parts of a story fit together. So at some point this weekend — on a drive, a walk, or just sitting at your desk — listen to Preet Bharara’s riveting and informative interview with Bill Browder — a guy who knows as much about Putin’s corruption as anyone (and is in very real danger because of that). This is an absolutely incredible interview.

+ “He is a man who is obsessed with TV. He watches the evening news over and over and over again to see how he’s portrayed, to see how he looks.” That might sound like someone we Americans know very well. But it’s actually a quote about Putin from part one of Frontline’s look at “how Vladimir Putin came to see the United States as an enemy — and why he decided to target an American election.” Don’t miss: Putin’s Revenge.
