11. The Spanish police rather than arresting him should provide him protection 24/7.

6. Putin really REALLY hates this guy.

The increasing International implementation of "Magnitsky" sanctions hit him RIGHT where he lives... In his oligarch's pockets.

7. I'm glad he was released.

What the hell is wrong with interpol? Enforcing an arrest warrant from Putin is like enforcing one from El Chapo.

9. Check out Preet Bharara's interview with him

on Preet's podcast, "Stay Tuned with Preet." Two of our era's most honorable and brave Americans in conversation -- we'll worth a listen. Browder's work to get the Magnitsky Act passed is an incredible achievement.
