Professor of History, Norman M. Naimark, recently authored the piece, "The Magnitsky Act - Russian lawyer in Trump Jr. meeting lobbied against it; why does Putin hate it so much?" on Fox News. Professor Naimark outlines the history of the Magnitsky Act, its namesake, and its current-day relevance in US-Russian politics. He concludes by stating, "It is no wonder that the issues of the Magnitsky Act and the ban on American adoptions were brought up in conversations between the highly placed Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and the Trump campaign."
