Kremlin foe Bill Browder, who calls himself Vladimir Putin's 'Enemy Number One', has raised suspicion after an American was arrested for espionage in Russia.

Browder, an American-born British financier who spearhead the Magnitsky Act - which punishes Russian human rights violators - took to Twitter to express his concerns on Monday morning following the arrest of Paul Nicholas Whelan.

'Russia Detains US Citizen in Moscow on Suspicion of Espionage. Looks like Putin wants a hostage for leverage purposes,' he wrote.

'Generally countries kick out suspected foreign spies, not arrest them.'

1. Yep. Think devious. Then you'll know what he's up to and what he's after.

Yep. Putin wants more leverage. To turn the screws on his little orange poodle (or is that - puddle?) in OUR White House.

3. Was he a plant sent there,

For putin and trump to now suggest a trade for Butina , who'll be killed by putin, and send a message he and trump can get you if you talk to Mueller. They cooked this up I'd bet to use to get at Butina. Another charge for trump if tries to do it, and the DOJ won't do it.
