Steven Seagal 'Opened Up Doors' for US Delegation in Moscow


Seagal, who said his goal is to improve counter-terror cooperation between the United States and Russia, also sought to take credit for setting up a meeting with Russia's Federal Security Service, or FSB, which is the successor to the Soviet-era KGB. The meeting focused on the Boston bombing investigation and the threat of terrorism.

Although Rohrabacher said the FSB meeting was scheduled by the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, Seagal insisted it was he who made the arrangements. As he made his case, Cohen shook his head.

"He can shake his head no, but the fact of the matter is yes I did. I can tell you how it happened, and I probably shouldn't say this because it'd be better for me if I didn't," Seagal said before explaining.

"Dmitri Rogozin, as you may know, controls FSB -- they fall under him, I mean that's his specific designation. And I asked him for that meeting and I knew about that meeting before they did," the actor said. "That's the truth."

Seagal added that the embassy likely only confirmed the meeting afterward.

At that point, Rohrabacher interjected, saying: "I'm sure that when Steven Seagal has put in a good word that it did nothing but help us get that appointment."
