Nik Krasno | 16037 comments There are reports about a failed attempt to recruit a Russian billionaire: https://edition.cnn.com/2018/09/01/po...
Who knows, maybe some other attempts were more successful and therefore beyond nosy reporters. What do you think?
Or could recurrent London accidents cause people think thrice before generously lending some info, if any is in their knowledge?
And maybe some insight into who those people are:

Ian Miller | 11771 comments I don't see how an oligarch could help the FBI without incriminating himself, in which case, avoiding the FBI might be in their best interests.

Philip (phenweb) | 3079 comments FBI - Years of investigation - plea deal - light sentence - if there even is one.
FSB investigation - dead end.

As an oligarch what would be your choice?

Why, they can know something without necessarily being involved themselves, besides - immunity is on the offer practically to anyone -:)

It might be so, that many of them are integrated into the system they fear and don't like, but breaking from it suggests probably much higher perils than staying loyal..

Ian Miller | 11771 comments Nik, if nothing else the oligarch could be investigated for election meddling, or some other meddling. Charges can invariably be found, and while they may not get anywhere, they bog people down for years. :-)
