Has Putin Fixed the World Cup?
A few years ago, a chance encounter between Christopher Steele, of the now-famous Steele Dossier, and an FBI agent who was working on a gambling case at Trump Tower, opened the door to a multi-year investigation into the massive corruption taking place at FIFA, the soccer federation.

We also discuss if Putin might have already fixed who will win this year’s World Cup. Hint: Russia.
