7:02 pm
interfere in our election. >> president putin, you have repeatedly and passionately denied that russia was behind the interference with our american presidential election. but as you know, the consensus view in the united states is that you did. that's what the 17 intelligence agencies concluded, republicans and democrats on the congressional oversight committee who have seen the classified report have said. are they all lying? >> translator: they have been misled. and they aren't analyzing the information in its entirety. i haven't seen even once any direct proof of russian interference in the presidential election in the united states. >> we met president putin in st. petersburg, his hometown, and russia's former capital. he grew up in a modest neighborhood here, became a kgb spymaster, and has been russia's strong man f7
7:03 pm
>> welcome to the st. petersburg international economic forum. >> it was my job to moderate the forum, with more than 4,000 feem in the audience, including world leaders, some sharing the stage. the normally wonkish gathering became heated when i asked president putin with russia's attempts to hack the u.s. election. >> the experts say it couldn't have been faked, it's the forensics, the malware, the encryption keys, the specific pieces of code, that all of them point to russia and none of them points to anyone other than russia. >> translator: what fingerprints, or hoof prints or horn prints? what are you talking about? ip addresses can be invented, you know. there are a lot of specialists who can make it so it comes from
7:04 pm
3-year-old daughter carried out the attack. >> there are reports today in the american press that the trump administration took active steps to ease sanctions on russia, almost immediately after trump took office. was it possibility ever discussed between the trump team and your representatives prior to president trump being inaugurated? >> translator: you know, i saw what was happening. to be honest, it was a big surprise for me too. what they're saying is just nuts. i don't know where the people spreading this disinformation came from. it's some sort of catastrophe. >> after those testy exchanges, we weren't sure what was going to happen later when we sat down for our one-on-one interview. and went right back to the issue of hacking. >> you had said for months that russia had nothing to do with the interference of the american
7:05 pm
hackers doing it. why the change and why now? >> translator: i hadn't said anything. it's just that french journalists asked me about those hackers. i tell them the same thing i tell you. hackers can be anywhere, in russia, in asia, america, latin america. they can be hackers in the united states who very skillfully and professionally, as we say, shifted the blame onto russia. could you accept that? in the midst of a political battle, by some calculations, it was convenient for them to release this information. so they released it, calling out russia. can you imagine something like that? i can. >> then the former kgb agent floated a conspiracy theory about u.s. dirty tricks. >> there's a theory that kennedy's assassination was arranged by the united states
7:06 pm
intelligence services. if this theory is correct, then what could be ruled out? this day and age, using all the technical means of the intelligence services to organize attacks and then pointing the finger at russia. >> for the record, u.s. intelligence has concluded their putin himself ordered the disruption of the election. regardless, president putin said the u.s. should be the last country to accuse russia of meddling. >>. >> translator: i will tell you something you already know, i don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but the u.s. actively interferes with campaigns in other countries. american officials are interfering in internal electoral processes. >> that sounds like a ju
7:07 pm
>> translator: it's a statement of fact. every action has an equal and opposite reaction. we don't even be have to do that. presidents come and go, go and even the parties in four, but the main political direction doesn't change. that's why, in the grand scheme of things, we don't know who is the head of the united states. we know more or less what is going to happen. so it wouldn't make sense for us to interfere. >> but the fbi, congress, and a special counsel are investigating russia's interference, and whether the trump team was in on it. >> a specials counsel has been appointed to investigate contacts between your government and the trump campaign. you've said your ambassador, kislyak, was just doing his job. so what exactly was discussed in these meetings? >> there were no meetings. i -- you understand? there were no meetings. when i saw this, my jaw dropped.
7:08 pm
ambassador kislyak and anybody from the trump campaign? >> translator: i have no idea. i'm being honest. do you think that from all over the world and the united states, the ambassador reports to me every day who he eats with or meets with? >> you're his boss. >> his boss is the minister of foreign affairs. do you think i have time to talk to our ambassadors every day all over the world? complete nonsense. >> among those under scrutiny, the president's son-in-law, jared kushner. at a meeting with russia's ambassador last december, he reportedly tried to establish a secret communications channel with the russian government. >> this is a proposal by mr. kushner? >> translator: i don't know about this proposal. no proposal like that came to me. >> mr. president, did jared try to set up a back channel to the russians?
7:09 pm
about what was in the discussions? >> translator: no. >> with anybody from the trump campaign? >>. >> translator: never. >> weren't you interested? >> translator: if it had been important, the minister would have reported it to me. there wasn't anything to talk about. there wasn't a discussion about sanctions or anything else. for me, this is just amazing. you create a sensation out of nothing and out of this sensation, you turn it into a weapon of war against the current president. well, this is, you know, you're just, you people are so creative over there. good job. your lives must be boring. >> michael flynn hasn't had a boring life. in 2015 he attended an event with president putin in moscow. he was later hired and then fired as president trump's national security adviser. and is now being investigated
7:10 pm
>> did you know general michael flynn? he came over here for a dinner, a photo of which has been widely circulated in the american media. what was the nature of your relationship with him? >> translator: you and i, you and i personally have a much closer relationship than i had with mr. flynn. we met yesterday evening, worked together all day today and now we're meeting again. when i came to the event and sat down at the table, next to me there was a gentleman on one side. i made my speech, then we talked about some other stuff and i got up and left. afterwards i was told, you know that was an american gentleman who was involved in some things, he used to be in the intelligence services. that's it. i didn't even really talk to him. that's the extent of my acquaintance with mr. flynn. >> but what about his relationship with president trump? >> i would get along with russia, and i'll get along with
7:11 pm
putin, and he's not going to make us look bad anymore. but we're going to get along. >> there have been questions in america about donald trump's finances, he hasn't released his tax returns. and a secret russian dossier that he says is fake. there's questions about the communications between the kremlin and the trump campaign, all of which has mearnds asking, do you have something damaging on our president? >> well, this is just another load of nonsense. where would we get this information from? did we have a special relationship with him? we didn't have any relationship at all. there was a time whenly used to come to moscow, but i never had the with him. we have a lot of americans who visit us. right now, we have representatives from 100 american companies that have come to russia. do you think we're gathering compromising information on all of them now or something? have you all lost your senses over there?
7:12 pm
>> toward the end of our conversation, we moved away from the election controversy, to president putin's reputation for repression. >> many americans hear the name vladimir putin, and they think he runs a country full of corruption, a country in which journalists who are too critical wind of murdered, a country in which dissidents could wind up in jail or worse. to meme who believe that, what is your message? >> i want to say that russia is developing along a democratic path, that is certain. and no one should have any doubt about that. why do you feel you have the right to ask us these kinds of questions and do it all of the time, to moralize and give us lessons on how to live? we're ready to listen to comments when it's done constructively, creating a common environment. but we will absolutely not accept when these sorts of
7:13 pm
things are used as an instrument of political conflict. i want everyone to know that, that's our message. coming up -- >> they must have known they were killing people. >> stunning allegations about a billion dollar drug company. tonight a whistle-blower speaks out. >> more people are going to die, cynthia. mere people are going to get hurt. i'm sorry. can i have a second? >> cynthia mcfadden with a powerful investigation. summer took a hit this morning when frankie popped the alligator floaty.

7:17 pm
fraud, bribes, bold-face lies. the allegations are stunning. tonight a whistle-blower is coming forward with information about the pharmaceutical company she worked for. she fears the company's drive for profits cost people their lives. did it? cynthia mcfadden investigates. >> reporter: it's lie upon lie upon misrepresentation here? >> yes, at every leefl, quite a scheme. >> very well thought out. >> absolutely genius, wrong, but genius. >> reporter: patty nixon is talking about insys
7:18 pm
therapeutics, they make the painkiller subsys, a fast-acting spray form of the opioid fentanyl, it's a hundred times more powerful than morphine. >> it's very serious, people died. >> reporter: patty says by deceiving insurance companies and putting people's lives at risk, she knows because she did it herself, and she's told a federal grand jury the story she's telling us in her first network interview tonight. >> what i did, i was instructed to do, i was trained to do, if i didn't do, i was going to be in trouble. and i'm trying to make it right. >> how devastating has this been to your life, this subsys? >> it destroyed it, right? >> reporter: jeff buckholter came home from the iraq war with injuries from multiple ied explosions.
7:19 pm
his new doctor prescribed subsys. he still has some of the boxes. his insurance company paid nearly a million dollars for the drug. so you put it under your tongue? >> yes, and it creates an aerosol. he said it took away his pain but also took him away from his wife and children. >> that corner over there was the devil's den, i just sat there with my boxes and just zoned out into the tv, that was it. >> reporter: jeff's doctor kept him on the drug for three years, prescribing higher and higher doses. jeff admits he sometimes took a little extra. >> it was controlling you? >> yes, everything was about the next dose. >> dr. andrew kolad ni directs opioid policy research. he said a drug like subsys is highly addictive and dangerous.
7:20 pm
>> that product is almost like a lethal weapon. you could kill somebody with one squirt. >> reporter: subsys is the only product sold by insys. it's an arizona-based company founded by a pharmaceutical entrepreneur, dr. it john kapoor, that's him in the middle. forbes lists him as one ever the wealthiest people in america. >> that product that we launched three years ago today will do close to $300 million. >> reporter: how did insys make so much money? the drug has a narrow approval, just for cancer patients with pain that can be relieved by other narcotics. >> if you're a drug company looking for profit, you're not going to do very well with an opioid medicine that's only prescribed to patients with breakthrough cancer pain. >> because there just isn't enough of them? >> that's right. >> so when you hear hundreds of millions of dollars of subsys
7:21 pm
what? >> that suggests that the company was illegally marketing the drug. they were getting doctors to prescribe the drug for conditions where it should not have been used. >> reporter: jeff didn't have cancer, and patty nixon said, most of the patients she knows about didn't either. she found herself part of an elaborate scheme to put the drug on people who never should have had it. >> my job responsibilities were to contact insurance companies on behalf of the patients and the doctors to get the medication approved and paid for by their insurance company. >> because it's expensive? >> it can go anywhere from $3,000 to $30,000 for 30-day supply. >> reporter: to get insurance companies to pay the high prices, insys told doctors not to worry, their employees like patty would handle it. patty says, handling it meant spinning lies. this woman was her boss, elizabeth gerery, as seen on her
7:22 pm
patty said she told her this. >> do whatever you have to do, just get it done. i don't care what you do. >> was that the instruction? >> yes. do whatever you have to do. >> reporter: that according to patty involved tricking insurers into believing the drug of medically necessary. they thought you were calling from the doctor's office. >> yes. that's what i was trained to tell them. >> reporter: she said gerery also taught her other tactics. >> she told me to use this diagnosis code. one for difficulty of swallowing. >> your supervisor told you, regardless whether the patient can swallow, put this diagnosis code on the form, hence the need for a spray under the tongue, and you'll get the patient
7:23 pm
>> correct. >> which is lying? >> absolutely. a complete bold face lie. >> to get a sure fire approval, patty would just claim the patient had cancer, also illegal. >> it's all corrupt. it was all corrupt and it was all for profit. >> reporter: sarah fuller didn't have cancer, she was plagued with neck and back pain from two car accidents. but her doctor actually brought an insys sales rep to an appointment. her father was there. >> they set up the appointment, i came with her, she told us about the medication. >> the drug company? >> yes. bringing a drug rep into the room with a patient, i've never heard of that before. >> unethical? >> completely inappropriate. >> he tripled her dose in one month.
7:24 pm
like we're doing right now and she'd fall asleep. >> sitting in the chair? >> yes, she'd fall asleep on the toilet and fall over and hit her head on the with bathtub. she said she felt like she was dying. >> something was wrong. sarah was found dead on her bedroom floor. what killed your daughter? >> technically fentanyl, but a drug company who couldn't care less about a human life and a doctor who didn't either. >> reporter: the attorney for sarah's parents showed us fda reports of possible subsys related cleagedzs? >> this is the adverse events that were reported. these are only reported cases. >> reporter: including hundreds of deaths. patty nixon told us getting patients like jeff and sarah on higher and higher doses was all about money too.
7:25 pm
we're following, she was started at 200 and within 20 stays she was at 600. >> yeah, that's insane, but that was normal practice. >> because everybody makes more money the higher the dose? >> everybody. sales, rep, me, the company, yeah, because it's more expensive. >> i'm running out of words to describe how horrible this is. >> and their bonuses were tide to how much and how big the doses were and how big the billing for the insurance company was. >> you have to wonder how they slept at night because they must have known they were killing people. >> after 11 months on the job, patty said she felt so guilty and stopped going to work. the company fired her. a year later in 2015, the fbi called. patty says she told them and a grand jury everything she knew. her former boss elizabeth gerery
7:26 pm
was arrested for fraud, but not charged. though in december the investigation led to the top of the company. ceo michael bab itch who let in 2015 was charged with fraud, racketeering and conspiracy. five other executives were indicted for racketeering and have all pleaded not guilty. patty is dealing with fall-out of her own. >> being a whistle-blower has made it impossible so far to get a job. >> it has. it's been very difficult and put quite a strain financially on myself and my family. >> you have a 12-year-old daughter. how did you explain to her your decision to come forward? >> i just told her that people were hurt, and somebody's gotta stand up for them. and if we were in that situation, we would want somebody to stand up for us. >> reporter: the government says along with the fraud, the conspiracy included hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to doctors. three top prescribers have been convicted of takg
7:27 pm
prescriptions, charges are pending against others. so to the doctors writing prescriptions for subsys offlabel, you would say to them what? >> i would wonder if they're doctors or drug dealers in white coats. >> reporter: as for jeff's doctor, he was paid fees of $35,000 by insys, but denies it influenced his decision to prescribe the drug. jeff is suing hg doctor and sarah's parents are suing hers, whose license has been temporarily suspended. both doctors deny responsibility. jeff and sarah's parents are also suing insys, which says it's not liable and not responsible for how doctors prescribe its product. >> even if you win a lawsuit, it will fix things for you? >> no, it's not going to bring sarah back. what it will do is take a company who only looks at their
7:28 pm
think twice that people's lives are more important than their bottom line. >> reporter: as for the company's founder, he doesn't face any charges and he's still a major shareholder in the country. we've reached out to him several times and have received no reply. we've come to his office to see if he'll tell us what he thinks of the company he started. i'm cynthia mcfadden from nbc news. how are you? i'm looking for doctor kapoor. is he here today? >> no, he's not. >> do you have any idea how i could get in touch with him? we've written letters and called. >> if you leave your information, i will forward it over to him. >> do you happen ton where he is? >> we don't really want to allow cameras in here. >> reporter: today insys has a new ceo. the company told us in a statement, it continues to cooperate with all ongoing investigations, is committed to
7:29 pm
complying with the laws and regulations that govern its products, as well as its sales and marketing practices and continues to emphasize ethical behavior within its organization. as a company, insys therapeutics is not facing criminal charges. it is still selling subs sis, $240 million worth last year. and even though the company has been under intense scrutiny, the fda has improved it to sell a new drug, a medical marijuana spray. >> why have they not been shut down? because more people are going to die. more people are going to get hurt. i'm sorry. >> do you feel responsible in some way? >> yes. and i just want to tell everybody out there who's been hurt, i am so sorry for any suffering or any pain
7:30 pm
family member at the graveyard, and for those family members that see their loved ones going through the pain of addiction, i am sorry. coming up, fighting to save the elephants of africa. this time the battle is led by women. >> it means so much to me, that i relocated my family to nairobi. >> meet this remarkable lieutenant colonel from america. >> that was intense. it was the ultimate success.

the elephants of africa are under assault. deadly poachers kill tens of thousands of them every year. we found one american woman who feels passionately about saving these animals, she's moved her family to kenya. harry smith reports. >> reporter: in kenya's savo national park, spring rains have finally come, the grass turned green almost overnight, and just as quickly, there are elephants, more than a hundred this day, drawn by instinct and memory,
7:39 pm
yes, they look red, for red is the color of the earth in this part of africa, but the sight of healthy herds can be deceiving. the elephant's existence is threatened and many fear the elephant is nearing a tipping point. the moment in the life of a species when numbers can't sustain survival. there's an elephant orphanage in nairobi. here there are dozens of orphans whose mother have been killed. the children, collateral damage. >> we're here today and we see some of the wounds, the dwun shot wounds, the snare wounds, but human inflicted wounds and these young innocent baby elephants are the victims of that. it definitely drives the importance of it home. >> reporter: fay quafeis is an extraordinary woman, an american working for the international
7:40 pm
ifaw. >> once they're released into the wild, there are many more threats, and variables, but at the end of the day, the elephant has to survive. >> reporter: tens of thousands of elephants are killed every year for their tusks. it's the ivory they're after. the poachers are usually locals who know the territory, hired by other africans, connected to a crime syndicate that reaches all the way back to asia. fay brings a unique skill set to kenya. she's a lawyer and a lieutenant colonel in the united states air force reserve, an intelligence officer whose stock in trade is fighting terrorism and finding bad guys. together we walk patrol with a unit of the kenyan wildlife service, stationed deep in the bush. their commander had been killed by poachers just weeks before. >> what do you think of the patrol? >> very impressed with the patrol. it's a remote outpost for sure.
7:41 pm
these guys are living in tent conditions, but we have a fine senior nco who is leading them today. which is fantastic. everybody's shiny boots, clean weapons, full clips, ready to go. >> how do you make the leap from i'm doing this intelligence work, to i'm going to move to kenya and work to fight elephant poaching? >> well, it was two years ago today, almost nearly to the day that i saw my first elephant in the wild, and it's not an exaggeration to say it changed my life. >> i've watched you watch elephants. what do you see when you see these animals? >> well, you know, elephants are a matriarchal society. as the mark yark, she has ben-of-many responsibilities, some we would consider to be traditionally female. she's a mother, but she's also a teacher in that it's her job to teach all the elephants in the herd skills. shac
7:42 pm
there's a pride and a confidence balanced against a compassion and empathy among elephant herds that's just astounding. >> what does it mean to you to know that this animal is under assault? >> it means so much to me that i've relocated my family to nairobi, kenya, in hopes that we can be part of much broader effort to save them. because to lose the elephants, which are on a path to extinction, you know, we have nothing but human apathy and greed to blame for it. and that to me is an inescapable truth. >> fay is convinced military tactics and technology will make a big difference here. at every stop she was like a sponge, soaking up local intel. >> the quicker we can collect it and depict the dots on the map,
7:43 pm
and know who to attribute the crime to. >> reporter: details and data that build into elf fant-saving strategies. the colonel is on a mission. while her military background is highly valued, equally valued are her diplomatic skills. at an honored guest near the masai mara park. the masai are a key ally in the fight against poaching. fay envisions a day when a masai herdsman will be able to give a heads-up if poachers come into the area. we took the road less traveled for a five-hour journey. in truth, little more than a dirt trail, that with an overnight trail turned into a sticky trap for our vehicl
7:44 pm
getting stuck in the mud was not going to stop fay. our destination, the masai's sacred forest, home to the tribe's high holy man. >> thank you, sir. and we appreciate your leadership on this issue. [ speaking foreign language ] >> he's on board too. >> that was intense. for him to endorse a commitment to stopping poaching, it was the ultimate success. >> reporter: as one of the oldest surviving cultures on the planet, there is little they don't notice. >> that warrior knows that area better than anybody. he knows, you know, every bend in the river. he knows where vegetation is. he knows by looking at a rain cloud which direction the rain will move and how long it will last. >> reporter: fay is not alone in
7:45 pm
her fight to save the elephants. in our two-week travels across kenya, we were often awed and we found other women, local women, who are making a dramatic difference. in kenya's north country, we met a kind of community organizer/mir organizer/miracle worker, this area, infamous as a hotbed for smuggling and poaching. her job to, persuade locals it's in their long-term interest to protect wildlife. audacious in that it's a woman delivering the message. courageous because it's a good way to get killed. >> i decided to sit down with them directly. >> excuse me, excuse me. you have this idea to come face the poachers, face to face. >> weren't you afraid? >> i wasn't afraid because i know if you are fighting for the
7:46 pm
right thing, you should not be afraid. >> reporter: she's convinced local tribesmen to stop fighting and poaching, to trade their life of crime for jobs as rangers. these two former poachers were mortal enemies, one from a christian tribe, the other, muslim. and now? >> this is your brother? >> this is my brother. >> in the safety of the reserve to the south, we met with manira bash ir, the kenya director of the nature conservancy. she remembers a kenya where elephants were everywhere, and she said it can be like that again. >> if you own something, then you take care of it. >> it's bottom up, instead of top down. >> bottom up and the way to go. >> reporter: the idea that rural folks are in charge of their own lives and are in charge of their own space, how importants
7:47 pm
>> makes me very proud and it makes me believe that the wildlife that is here today, ten years, 20 years, it's going to be there. because it's in the hands of the rural people. >> reporter: kenya is making clear poachers are not welcome in their country. convicted poachers receive a mandatory 20-year prison sentence. and last year, this. a clear and emphatic message to the world. the kenyan government set fire on a 100-ton pile of ivory. elephant tusks confiscated off the blk market. street value, a staggering $100 million. >> we identify with the elephants. >> reporter: judy is kenya's secretary of the environment. >> this is the ash? >> these are the ashes. this is to commemorate that ivory has no value unless it's on a live elephant.
7:48 pm
