There is no Magnitsky fallout, that’s not what Medvedev said. It was a case of tax evasion, Magnitsky was about to take a rap for it, he squealed, he died. Russia is out of few hundreds million dollars in taxes. US Congress got touchy on this because many had interests in Hermitage, lobbing kickbacks on emerging market.

Some Congressmen decided that moneys were rightfully theirs and got upset.
