Alleged Russian agent jailed before trial


A Judge has ordered alleged Russian agent Mariia Butina to be jailed ahead of trial after prosecutors say she might be a flight risk. New Federal indictments reveal Butina is accused of trading sex in exchange for a position with a political group and asking for “further orders” from a Putin-linked oligarch after Trump’s election win. Rolling Stone’s Tim Dickinson joins Ari Melber to discuss why “this has turned into” a “real-life plot line from ’The Americans’”.
