If you cannot show an illicit flow of funds to the Democratic National Committee then the information was worthless if it even existed. Here you are calling it valuable information but cannot even show it was used.
Either it was worthless info or (more likely) it never existed in the first place. Rinat Akhmetshin is a traitor to the Russians. You can't believe anything bad he had to say about Russia. He will always be considered a traitor there.
Those are, of course, the same allegations that Putin brought forth in the infamous Helsinki press conference:
During the presidential campaign, a Kremlin-linked lawyer tried to interest the Trump campaign in allegations against Mr. Browder during a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in New York with members of the Trump campaign, who had been promised damaging information about the Clinton campaign. That meeting has become a focus of Mr. Mueller’s investigation.
Mr. Putin on Monday detailed on television a variation of some of the allegations that the lawyer, Natalia V. Veselnitskaya, brought to the Trump Tower meeting — namely that some of Mr. Browder’s associates had funneled $400 million to the Clinton campaign with money illegally moved out of Russia.
“Business associates of his have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia,” Mr. Putin said. “They never paid any taxes. Neither in Russia nor in the United States. Yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent huge amounts of money, $400 million, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton.”
Additionally, Mr. Putin declared, “we have solid reason to believe that some intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions.”
Additionally, Manafort's notes show that Browder was the main topic of conversation. Also, Natalia Veselnitskaya. has been on a crusade against Browder for years.
So that's what the Russian claimed, and still claim to have: evidence that Browder made illegal donations to the DNC to help Hillary Clinton.
