Henry is ook verbonden aan The American Interest, in 2005 opgericht door onder anderen Francis FukuyamaEind vorig jaar publiceerde hij hierin ‘The Curious World of Donald Trump’s Private Russian Connections’, een omvangrijk en doorwrocht overzicht van Trumps connecties met dubieuze types van Russische en verwante signatuur. Een citaat: ‘The individual case-based approach to investigations employed by most investigative journalists and law enforcement often misses the big picture: the global networks of influence and finance, licit and illicit, that exist among business people, investors, kleptocrats, organized criminals, and politicians, as well as the “enablers”—banks, accounting firms, law firms, and havens. Any particular component of these networks might easily disappear without making any difference. But the networks live on. It is these shadowy transnational networks that really deserve scrutiny.’
