Hermitage Capital CEO Bill Browder, a London-based investor and vocal Russia critic, used his experience dealing with Vladimir Putin to argue that the summit with President Biden should have never happened. Browder said the meeting gives the Russian president the same platform and influence as free world leaders on "Mornings with Maria" Wednesday.

BILL BROWDER: We're in a situation where Vladimir Putin has become a global menace. He's taken over neighboring countries. He's shot down aircraft. He's cheated in the Olympics. He's hacked our computers. He's taken American hostages. He's put bounties out on American soldiers in Afghanistan. 

We're in a situation where this man is a global criminal. And I can only imagine, I can only hope that President Biden will go there and tell him, in no uncertain terms, that there will be consequences if he carries on.
