"Two punch you take a look at one of my favorite websites in the entire world is to saint louis feds economic research site which is just full of charts and graphs and fun stuff for people like that and you take a look at that. Federal debt and. There's a huge huge up night. Even like a sky slugger skis seek ski slope. It's the empire state building. It's just like exempt and so that's why in a way. I'm not terrific. Lee concerned. But i i wanted to talk about that point. You made about the indicators. Because you're right. Sometimes those things can be lagging indicators. But i'll also point out that one of the most common indicators we use is the inch is the interest rate on ten year treasuries and of course those are investors who are looking well that far out into the future and so maybe that is. I would argue a slightly less lagging indicator then many which is not to disagree with your point entirely but just to say that. I think that's maybe a little less sell than something like say looking at the housing market for the previous recession that being that being pretty much lagging indicator and some other things like that. That's that's a fair point. That's a fair point. Now you know the last piece here. That i wanted to kind of talk about on this. Mike is to think about the fact right. We still do. We don't want to spend too much time. We still do have of course to and you point out to big spending hopes coming from the bind administration and from but to get them through. They're gonna need reconciliation but we only have one more reconciliation to go. Do you think the fact that we've now extended this but mcconnell's put the stamp on it changes the calculus on that makes a little bit more difficult since we're going to need to see that coming via singular reconciliation process. Because as i understand that there's a way to work the the work the senate rules where they can get to reconciliation bills before the end of the year. So i don't really. I don't really think that's a that's a problem. And and if they need the besides the process in the end i think they'll have the votes to do that sort of thing as opposed to just something more radical doing away with the filibuster. Which which. I don't which i don't think will happen and i gotta say speaking of radical that idea that. I'm sure you've heard time a few times when when this comes up. Is that idea of minting. A one trillion dollar platinum coin as sort of a salute. that that's the thing and i gotta. There's a certain appeal to that. Some listeners may know i'll under legislation. congress passed most recently in two thousand and one. The treasury department treasury secretary can basically authorized the minting of a platinum coin at any value without congressional approval. And so there's nothing that law as if read literally means that you know janet yellen could say here. Here's a trillion dollar coin. And we're just gonna draw on that. And i think i've seen some fanciful interesting designs that sort of thing and that's one way out of it but somehow i don't think janet yellen is going to take that take that i mean i think the amount of blowback that that would create in the confidence. Yeah but it is interesting where people won't go when they think here's the way but but i think we should roy. Yeah i think in terms of how how this will play out. I am with a high degree of confidence. I think this this gets taken care of. And we get the white one trillion half a half a trillion dollars in new spending infrastructure bill and we get around two trillion dollars in the in the other in the other before the end of before the end of the..

Of course in august it's being reported amazon's planning open at thirty thousand square foot department store. Ohio and california sell items like clothes and electron ix. So you know you need. How have you bought shoes lately. You know. I like sneakers now. At for many many years. I wore nothing but Steel toe boots and for me. You know it's it's a joy now to be able to just wear sneakers and It's it's really hard when you have narrow feet to be able to to basically no it size to buy especially when it comes to shoes try shoes on walk around in you. Think you got the right size and then the later have warmth a little. I like man. Wish these a hapless is bigger. So i run into this issue all the time so with nyc. I know what size my shoe has been. Nyc might make use is a nine point. Five with nike shoes. I never went wrong with a nine point. Five attends too big too small. So when i go into a shoe store and requested nine point five and get a shoe and it's usually does. It's not the same. How come they can't get the sizes the same. It's like every hubei buy it's either. It's either one upper one down. So e sales must hate. Bring me a nine. Bring me a nine and a half and bring me a ten of the same shoe. That's what i have to do. I don't know about you same thing. How much time in money is being spent that guy gone back and forth back and forth. When it'd be just better you see issue you like.

But why can't other companies adopt some of this. I'm sure what it is is. The technology costs is very very high and with marge's being very narrow. It's easier just to pay that. Have two or three people on staff that's running back and forth getting different shoes but if you think about labor that's all you need someone in the back stock. So amazon may be onto something here when it comes to close same thing. With with jeans.

"About money and finances and mortgages, all the things that I I feel pretty passionate about because you know you only know what you know, and you don't know what you don't know. And sometimes it's too late. If you especially if you have someone that doesn't know the warning signs of red flags. Another example. I have this really nice agent that came in to see me the other day talking about one of her clients. Could I get him pretty approved and we're going to call her Barbara. It's not her name. Not even close to her name. So don't worry barbers out there. So, Barbara Came in and said, Okay, this is what I want to say. Hey, by the way, could you maybe help me with the mortgage, But I've got some issues and I'm like, Oh, don't we all everybody's got issues. What? What could your issues be? Well, she's a single mom. She has two kids. She is an American citizen. She is from Pakistan. No problem with any of that. She's a real estate agent. She's brand new. She had a big business, dry cleaning business and sold it right before Covid and then all during Covid. She studied for her real estate test, and she passed it. So now she's an agent, and she hasn't done any transactions yet, So everything is new to her and I went and spoke at a real estate function the other day, So I have a lot of new little agents calling me wanting to help. Which I am glad to give. I'm very happy to give because if they bring me deals, I can help them work out their deals. And then I get the mortgage. So I'm all for teamwork here. So she said, OK, Uh oh. I named her Barbara. I couldn't remember her name. So, Barbara said so. This is my story, she said. I make money off of investments. I haven't started making any money in my real estate business yet. And if you get into real estate you've got to have Two years worth of taxable income before we can end didn't use it anyway. So she's brand new that would never work. She doesn't have a job. This is it, Okay? You think that would be fine? Yes. Taxable income. She makes nine grand a month. Sounds wonderful. Love that idea, And then she said, so. I'm divorced. Um, I have the money in a fund and I said great. She goes well, I used to have it with and this is where things get dicey. Because people always have to explain their way out of where they're at. And why are there at where they're at, and that's when you know the story. The plot thickens. So, she said, So I used to be at Morgan Stanley and they had all of my money and I make $9000 off my initial investment. But they were only paying me 4%. I said, okay. I mean, that's about the going right here in the United States. She goes. So I called my dad and in Pakistan, I can get 12% like Oh, my gosh, You've got to be kidding. She goes. No, no. So I took all my money out and I moved it transferred into Pakistan. I'm like, Oh, she was like Is that a problem? I'll just and that's where I'm going to get the money to put down. Like it depends. So I started calling all my lenders and I'm like, how do I bring that money back to the states? See once you will you make it in this state. She was well, It's not a problem because I made it here. I mean, it was part of my divorced. I'm a citizen. It was in California said Yeah, but you took it away. You took it outside the United States so now bringing it back in its foreign money. She goes. No, no, no, I had it here. I'm like it doesn't matter what you had matters what you have. Now, What you have now is foreign money. And now we've got to get it back over here in the states, So she is going to get into a special program where I can use money from not the United States. Only because of the money is in dollars. It never transferred to whatever money they have over there, and the statements are in English, So I think probably she's going to come by again this afternoon. And we're going to print out all those statements so I can see where the money is at. I think they're probably having Affiliate banking relationship with someone here in the states. A lot of those banks do that They have foreign banks. But it's not really quote a foreign bank even though it's located there, But it has trading skills with the bank here in the U. S. U. S Bank has a lot of those trading things. Um, Banco Popular has a lot of trading capacity with other countries, so it's really important. Not that she doesn't have a job and not even that she has investments, which is great. We can use that. But it's where the money is coming from. And the reason that's a big thing is because the U. S department Treasury. Um, the government, the big guys. They're telling us right now where we can get money from and where we can't. There's a lot of countries. You can't bring money in from to buy anything here in the United States. So Egypt is one of those countries. I'm sure Pakistan might be. I've just got to find out. I've got to get that list. So I've got to log on to the State Department and find out what I can find out and then call my lenders. Once I get her, um Once I get her everything, and you know it really see where we're at. It's it's things that she didn't know back then or she probably wouldn't have. Well, I think she will still want to move the money because she got paid three times, four times what we paid here in the United States so anyone would move the money. The problem is There are ramifications for our actions and there are ramifications for our inactions. I got another call from a friend yesterday. I seem to tell you these stories all the time because it's easier. It's my real life. It's you know, I get a call every 10 minutes with something and somebody and they all have a story. Um, so I have a friend that's in a smaller community here in Texas. She got divorced, like 20 years ago. Been single all this time, and she is, um she has a regular kind of office job. Doesn't get paid a whole lot, maybe 100,000 year, which is good for her and what she does, and in a small communities she's in, and there was a mistake made when her husband, her ex husband retired, So in many states, you don't get a piece of their retirement when you divorce them until they take that retirement. So he was a member of a of a company and they had a pension plan and that pension plan once he retired, he had access to it, And it's a predetermined amount, like the railroad or the electric company or whoever you have your pension with and they tell you how much you're going to get based on how much you put in..

"I'm David Westin for Bloomberg. First word news. We're going out to Mark Crumpton. David. Thank you, U S officials acknowledged there will be a lengthy effort to determine the extent of a suspected Russian hack on federal agencies and private companies. Republican Senator Mitt Romney says Russia acted with impunity, and he says President Trump has a blind spot about it. President has contradicted U. S intelligence officials and suggested that China may be behind the cyber attack. The Justice Department is unsealed charges against the Libyan bomb maker in the 1988 explosion of Pan Am Flight One old three over Lockerbie, Scotland. Theater attack killed 259 people in the air and 11 on the ground. Charges were announced on the 32nd anniversary of the bombing and in the final news conference of Attorney General William Bars tenure, underscoring his personal attachment towards case that unfolded during his first stint at the Justice Department. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin says that $600 stimulus checks that form part of a covert 19 relief bill could start going out to Americans as soon as next week. Roughly $900 billion pandemic relief plan, along with the government spending bill is set to get votes in the House and Senate and congressional leaders believe it will pass. The White House says President Trump will sign the measure. Well heeled Americans are flocking to advisers to help them transfer their wealth to the next generation By year's end. They're trying to get ahead of any tax heights or loophole closures on the rich proposed by the incoming administration. To that end, appraisers use for valuing assets have been inundated.

I thought you were the same one. But ah, Ah, yeah, just stand in one place and go for the super get a clear call Say, listen to the rest of what you were saying. And it's sad if that's really if that's the reality, but So my take on it is you know people are so fed up this hanging. Let's back up. Let's go back to what you originally said, because we're now minutes away from that. So you were saying if the police Or the military won't put down this insurrection. Why don't we do it ourselves? That was your questions. Last contention, Correct. Okay, Wade right into him and light a month. Okay, wait. What do you think comes out of that for you or anybody that does that? Okay. If the cops aren't doing anything to them, what's going on? Why would they all of a sudden turn on us? Are you kidding me? Are you Are you freaking kidding? The police would put down in the nanosecond. Not only that, If you even managed to take a couple of them out, you were going to be arrested. You'll be in a court of law. You'll be tried with Straight up murder. You know, I understand that you don't You don't see that. What? What if there's a bunch of us like 100 00? Yeah, That'll really, That really worked out 100. You know you're going to stand against a SWAT team. We haven't done anything yet. Listen, let's get into reality here. The police are not on your side. It is not the police officers, as they say, Rank and foul on the street. Don't know It's the management from the mayor's and the sheriff's on down. They want to stand back because they're told to do so. And they stand back and watches the cities burn. In many cases, they almost aid and abet when they do wait in they don't take anybody down. What makes you think they're gonna let you do it? Well, there's a hell of a lot of us that are sick and tired of it. Yeah. Hell of a lot of you will have Apache helicopters over your house. They will hunt you down like a dog. You'll be in jail and I don't know I'm can ask if you're white Sound white? Sure. Yeah. You're the wrong color to be in jail for taking down aunty for black lives matter. Yeah, you will. But you won't be standing against anybody in jail. You public of getting married. Well, I guess it seems like there's a lot of us. Yeah, I sense your for sale. That way. I say it is the question How we feel. It's what the reality is. I sense your frustration. You are not standing against the mob. Ain't gonna happen. I don't care. I got 1000 of you out there. They will put you down as fast as you rose up. Ah, Utah Ex welcome down the edge. Uh, you're you're absolutely right. I'm we got to start talking about this military coup probability. I want to say possibility, but it's looking bad, and I'm thinking the only thing that I can see possibly maybe working as Trump's got to get on it. Get on Twitter and call these guys own because he is still the commander. And if he calls on every one of these higher ups, every one of them I don't care if they've been speaking or not. But get there. Um, whatever you call it their decision. Will you support me or instruction? And, yeah, this is the order that they should have known this would happen a while back, and it should have happened as soon as the first military person started breaking ranks. And I think that would have been Alan. Forget Allen's first name. He was in another Allen west. No, no, I'm talking about his last name is Allen. And he was chief of staff something with national security. Trump ended up getting rid of him. But he was one of the first ones to come out and start talking behind the scenes about were containing things that Trump my group, and I all of Colin Powell all of so he doesn't get people are actively in the military right now and purge them if they came in in any way because of rockets and Obama there immediately guilty. Yes, And they're one way that conservatives if he brings it to the public's attention, that he is asking them not asking, telling them to write him a letter saying he wants your signature on it. As a Hollywood It's too deep. They can always renege on their signature. But the point is calling to the public's attention. It's too deep in the weeds. No for that it's gonna have to happen after he's in his second term. He can't do that right now. That'll completely vindictive look like some type of Misdirection on his part, and we'll both know it isn't and we're thinking. Oh, no, it isn't. But do you think for one minute that the general public is going to accept something like that right now? I think they should know about it. Well, that's the best we're doing to our ability right now, but don't know. And Trump should possibly start talking about it. But no, no, no. This this is after election time stuff. But by the way, if Donald Trump doesn't get elected, it doesn't make any difference anyway. I I didn't say that. I know I'm saying that I'm saying that for trumped all of sudden, bring this up and throw it And this is a huge this is this is no small task. This is no small test. This goes back to what I said. Around all of the people in every department from State Department Treasury. Whatever that are 100% not on the team with the president to commander in chief.

"But this is not a fight in a lot of cases that these countries want mean Philippines vehicle doesn't really have much of a Navy to contend with China at all. And neither would a country like Vietnam. So That they would really prefer to see a deescalation mention president the other way around earlier mentioned the issue of human rights. That's something that the Trump Administration. I think it's safe to say hadn't really been focused too much on early in the administration, but it does seem like there have been a lot of moves of late there, particularly in Xinjiang Province as well. As the ongoing situation with Hong Kong. Is there any evidence that some of the sanctions that the Trump administration has put on when it comes to human rights as having any impact on China? I know that there's not really any evidence that the sanctions are having much of an effect at all. In fact, the criticism is that they're just making things worse. And even more so that by sanctioning China and so many spears, some people argue that the administration is actually removing restraint from Santa. The theory is okay. Well, if China says we know you, the United States, they're gonna hit us anytime we do anything, so it doesn't matter. We're just going to do all that stuff because you're going to hit us anyway, so They argue that the sanctions are actually having a reverse effect. The challenge with this is the challenge of so many things with this administration. We have evidence from John Bolton's book and other examples that the president himself really does not care about human rights. There's the anecdote in Bolton book where he Basically gave Shi Jin ping the green light to do whatever he wanted in Xin Jiang effect meant internment camps. Rounding people up really an extraordinary litany of human rights abuses in the region, and similarly, he may have felt the same about Hong Kong, basically giving China, the green light to crack down on political freedoms there. On the other hand, you have a large group of his advisers who believe that this is the grave human rights threat and China really needs to be pushed back on and this old approach of accommodation and looking the other way on some of these abuses had to end. So what you find now is this convergence where the president installed, was looking for politically expedient approach to China to look tough, And that's dovetailing with the wishes of some of his advisers. Mike Pompeo, for example, who are rolling out these prescriptions. These sanctions these punishments to Ah, to do what they say was has been necessary for years. We're speaking with Nick Wadhams, State Department reporter for Bloomberg News. We know Ah, Nick that one issue that President Trump really does care about in the ongoing dispute with China is trade getting that trade deficit to a more equitable level in something that he's been talking about throughout his presidency and now Getting closer to Election Day. He's starting to talk about significantly scaling back economic ties with China. I mean, there have been some moves on that front but isn't a significant scale back. Pretty much a tall order. Yes, I order If you look at something like agricultural purchases, I mean scaling back trade, agricultural trade soybeans, for example. Would be devastating for American farmers. So there is that element. There is also the broader element of so many companies that the Chinese consumers of hugely important for their for their future airplane manufacturers, for example, bowing Ah, a huge market in China. But this is also a point of some dispute There is right now a big war going on within this administration over How exactly to push this and how far to decouple as they call it from China, And there's a recognition that the U. S was vulnerable and some supply change. For example, sourcing particular medicines on Lee from China put the US in at risk and in a difficult position. But at the State Department, there's a real desire to decouple almost entirely. US. Data, for example, shouldn't be housed on servers in China Chinese Act shouldn't be on US phones, things like that. On the other side. There's the Commerce Department Treasury Department, which argued, Listen, You guys may say all these things and think they sound nice, but we're the ones who would actually need to implement them. And when the two economies the two worlds, two biggest economies are so intertwined, you can't just unwind that without it, blowing up in the face of the United States as well. Is that something you might Pompeo Onda hawks in the State Department are prepared to accept. So we've heard a lot of tough messaging from the State Department from Pompeo from the president from Peter Navarro. But at the same time you have a certain quiet pushback from folks like Robert Lighthizer. Wilbur Ross Mnuchin saying, Listen, we need to tap the brakes on this a little bit.

"Meanwhile the centers for disease control and prevention in Atlanta is warning the true number of U. S. coronavirus cases might be higher than reported because test kits center nationwide earlier this month couldn't be included a faulty component to break down the news on the outbreak worldwide in here in this country we're joined here in New York by Laurie Garrett former senior fellow for global health at the council on foreign relations Pulitzer Prize winning science writer author of several books including a bolus story of an outbreak the coming plague newly emerging diseases in a world out of balance and the trail of trust the collapse of global public health in a recent piece for foreign policy she wrote trump has sabotaged America's coronavirus response and she has another piece how China's incompetence endangered the world Laurie welcome back to democracy now it's great to have you with us so talk about the first news conference president trump has held at the White House on the S. he appointed he wouldn't call him the czar but is he appointed the vice president pence as the person the point person on dealing with the corona virus well obviously pence needed some job besides space force so now he has something to do in the White House but all joking aside pence is not a medical expert and he certainly is not someone who's demonstrated to kill a great amount of respect for science when he was governor of the state of Indiana the opioid crisis started in southern India and he suddenly people were injecting opioids he I went to his god and came back and told the legislature that he did not believe that any human being should receive sterile syringes to assist them in being a drug addict his own legislature countered him he vetoed countered vetoed meanwhile according to a study published by Yale University at least two hundred and fifty people got infected with HIV as a result of this crazy policy and he also of course defended Planned Parenthood leading the movement in Congress and they had the one HIV testing site in the area on the and it was the Indiana model that president trump cited in saying that he was qualified to lead this effort now let's talk about what's happening here while it is said that the US has far fewer cases of coronavirus and anywhere else in fact there is almost no testing that well you know I can't say that we don't have a lot of cases the last time I looked at the case the count we had tested four hundred and fifty six people in the entire United States to put that in comparison in Seoul South Korea alone they've tested thirty five thousand now if you're not gonna find cases if you're testing four hundred fifty six people out of two hundred sixty million Americans you're gonna miss quite a number what we should be doing right at this moment the most urgent thing we should be doing is testing every single pneumonia patient that is hospitalized because if there's likely to be a sneak through of this epidemic it's going to come through as an ammonia patient is going to be diagnosed as flu or some other cause and it's actually going to be this coronavirus and covert nineteen will break out in the hospital ward this will be seen all over the world so far as these outbreaks really explode when they hit one of two things a religious site whether you have large concentrations of people coming in for a religious festival of some sort for a hospital and if the index of suspicion isn't very very high among the healthcare workers Russia well cruise ship that's the whole that's just a Petri dish but if the rate is if their health care workers are really on their toes really alert thinking what if and they don't have the right protective gear then as they examine that patient they become infected and so this is this is our problem right now no this particular case in northern California is very worrying because the individual lived in a rural area was not a traveler didn't know any travelers was a local worker of some sort we don't know a lot of detail sixty one year old male and was in various health facilities getting misdiagnosed and it was the health providers themselves were saying two of the public health of California which was in turn say into CDC it Lana we want this person tested for the crown of ours we think that's what this is and the CDC said that doesn't look like it and didn't do a test on Capitol Hill lawmakers grilled senior administration officials over their response to the crisis this is Louisiana Republican senator John Kennedy who on Tuesday blasted the acting homeland shy secretary Isaac homeland security secretary Chad wolf for struggling to produce basic facts about the corona virus outbreak first to keep aside budget supports the men and women land securities yes Sir and you can't tell me if we have enough for a separate what I would tell you is that the budget my budget our operations are focused not only on the men and women of DHS making sure they're protected to do their jobs to screen individuals coming and we're working with HHS and their budget answer to you ensure that they have enough medical face masks we for the department of homeland security we are not asking for the department homeland scar you look past him for the American people for the for the entire American public yes No I would say probably not okay have shorter way I I don't have that number off hand center I'll get that for you okay but I want to be sure I understand somebody yes Sir is known modeling yes Sir on how many cases were anticipating yes is not aware of that you're asking me a number of medical questions that I'm asking you the question HHS secretary of our department on homeland security and you're supposed to keep us safe yes Sir and you need to know the answers to these questions and how far away are we from getting a vaccine in several months well that's not what we just heard testimony about okay who's on first here so that was the Republican Louisiana senator John Kennedy a questioning the head of homeland security Chad wolf Laurie Garrett pretty abysmal situation where where we are right now is that everybody is recognizing oops it was a big mistake by the trump administration to obliterate the entire infrastructure a pandemic response that the Obama administration had created why do you do it well certainly wasn't about the money because it wasn't a heavily funded program it was certainly because it was Obama's pro can explain you're talking about the unit within the centers for disease control no we're talking about something much faster than that it was a special division inside the National Security Council a special division inside of the department of homeland security with that Bozo was talking from and a good collaborating centers in HHS headquarters in Washington the office of global health affairs and the commerce department treasury department but what what Obama understood dealing with Ebola in twenty fourteen is that any American response had to be an all of government response there are so many agencies overlapping and they all had a little piece of the puzzle in the case of a pandemic just fit into this mental exercise with maybe if we if we get to a situation where we're anything like what's going on in China right now then our department of commerce our department transportation at our department of USDA we have to collaborate to get food deliveries all over America slit parts of America don't starve and you can see in China convoys hundreds of eighteen Wheeler vehicles completely full of food coming into Han every single day do we have the capacity to coordinate that with the Obama administration realizes that you can't corral multiple agencies and things from private sector as well as public sector to come to the aid of America unless you have some one person in charge who's really the manager of it all and then in his case it was Ron Klain who had worked under vice president Biden and he was designated with an office inside the White House to give orders and coordinate all these various things well that was all laminated Scott and now they're hastily trying to recreate something and and last night there were many names tossed around about who he was going to appoint as head of the response he had previously gone on the record president trump saying I have great faith in secretary as are done my HHS secretary will be in charge and we're told but from multiple sources that right up until they got on stage for that press briefing was our thought he was in charge and then the president says and here's my good friend Mike pence and he's taking charge well there are reports that trump was very angry that aids are even raise the concerns he did publicly because trump was majorly concerned about the markets and that he had brought people in to the United States from the cruise ship from they were Americans and they were as you were saying sitting in a Petri dish that cruise ship of thousands hundreds of people got infected even when they were in lockdown which version of thousand it may very well end up that half of the crew and passengers will be affected before that story finishes playing out I want to turn to president trump addressing reporters Wednesday night at the White House press briefing room one of the reporters question trump on his comments about how former president Obama handled the Ebola outbreak in two

When the president tweeted he was reversing the sanctions Bloomberg. Soleil emotion says treasury put the sanctions on at its own discretion the last of the week, given the treasury department some discretion to decide what to do and on Friday. We don't know what triggered the tweet. We just know that he was unhappy with it. And it was a few hours of different an officials from the State Department treasury department trying to figure out where to head from that point. Yeah. So to clarify the apparent confusion between the president and his treasury department. In public the sum. Total is that he apparently wanted to take the sanctions off and we stopped tomorrow.

"Yes. In the blow. Hi, I'm greener Lova journalists in exile journals from Russia, and we, of course, know that Russia is a is a is a state where there's this messy propaganda state propaganda machine. And we don't need an assessment to you know, to decide whether those that rogue actors or not we know that the rogue actors. And I've been calling for sanctioning at least the top officials at the state propaganda machine ACA. You know, the chief editor RT channel and every time I talk to people is rob. I'm being told that now there is this in the first amendment, and including some congressional staffers on the democratic say, so Ben MC question is we know that the Obama administration aggressively lobbied against the Magnitsky act. State Department treasury national Security Council, they didn't want the Magnitsky act to be passed. Hope thankfully did. And we now know that he was a mistake to lobby against him. And my question is aren't we like the US making this same mistake? Now when we do not sanction Putin's as states propagandist. Thank you. This is air. She spread radio programming from Monday WCBS be from Washington. Well, when when I was an assistant secretary of state, I very much wanted to sanction the propaganda, but Roberson ski told me I couldn't do it. Do you want to explain why that's true? So I sort of kidding. I'll take the opening I think we can all agree of about the nature of Russia's state propaganda. And it's terrible effects of the Russian and elsewhere. The bottom line is we look at the two Magnitsky act is they simply don't apply to to sanctioning propaganda. We go back and look at what sorts of crimes are covered. And there was early discussion that looks like the Trump administration is applying the definitions a little bit more broadly than the Obama administration did, but essentially the covered crimes boil down to murder rape torture, enforced disappearance, and yes, the holding of political prisoners are unjust imprisonment. It's important that the crimes that these sanctions given how. Cooercive a tool they are. It's important that we all have a common understanding of how could be applied. This is a very serious penalty. And it is one that absolutely should not be applied on illegal or unjust grounds. And I say as a human rights advocate that this is a tool that if misapplied could be extraordinarily damaging to any number of classes of people, but not least of whom are activists and journalists so when we're dealing with propaganda. It's just an incredibly tricky landscape, and at the end of the day, we need to be very careful when we're talking about freedom of expression. I know this is the answer you you've heard before an expect. But that's not to say that there aren't other means by which the US government should be approaching the. Effects of propaganda. And I think we need to be very creative in how we address disinformation. As anybody that has read the headlines over the course of the last three years could tell you at the mater moderator's discretion, I'm going to interject with my own question for the panel. I I always find it. Interesting to probe unintended consequences of policies. The United States does harkening back to our Patriot Act and are anti-terrorism laws in the years after nine eleven we've seen countries all over the world, adopt around anti-terrorism laws, which have been used to crack down on expression. Is there a potential that that Magnitsky could also be misapplied? Instead of like, I don't know. But if I were a creative dictator, I'm pretty sure I could find a way to accuse a dissident of a human rights violation because he upset the public stability or something like that. Can you can talk a little bit about maybe the nuance here in trying to propagate a set of human rights laws that ten not be misconstrued. The do the exact opposite of what we want them to do. So the bottom line is that the dictators already have tools at their disposal to use against activists. Including the misapplication of the law and up to and including murder. I don't think we should let that argument. Stop us. Now, we should have safeguards in place. And this is a topic of conversation with the Europeans. They think about their own law. We need to make sure that anybody that's designated input on what's called the specially designated nationals list that the treasury department maintains that the evidence evidentiary base that went into that designation is airtight. It's very important that the person designated be able to show at the end of the day that they either were designated wrongly, and that that designation can be challenged either administratively or through a quarter of law which exists in the United States war, and this gets to the heart of what sanctions are all about the person has changed their behavior and that should be delisted because the global Magnitsky act is so new that hasn't occurrences. Not yet. Come up, with the exception of the Turkey case, I mentioned earlier after Brunson was released but in other sanctions programs. We have seen instances in which the designated individual petitions, and ultimately is is delisted given a change in behavior. But coming back to what dictators are going to say, they already have all the tools, so I don't have much sympathy for us necessarily needing to rebut that that line of thinking. I would say it's important for the United States to realize the role that it plays around the world. And so you alluded to the terrorism laws, and you know, to put things in perspective, the most common charge that is used to jail. Journalists in the past three years have seen record numbers of journalists. Jailed more than two hundred and fifty each year. Is anti-state charges such as supporting terrorism, I'm providing support to a terrorist group, terrorist, propaganda, etc. So it is and now we've seen it with fake news as well. As the fake news rhetoric has spread around the world. We're seeing that more countries are proposing fake news laws that would restrict and punish criminally. Punish the dissemination of so-called fake news? We've seen the number of journalists imprisoned on false news charges rise since not rhetoric has increased. And of course, we can look at specific examples going back to the Russian propaganda one where the whole discussion about faira in the foreign agents registration act over RT in the United States led to retaliation in Russia creating their own approach to faira and using that to apply not only to US government funded. Entities media entities, but also to CNN and other broader media entities. So it's an issue. But you know, as rob said, I think it doesn't seem to concerning in the Magnitsky act at this point. Courtney radish committee to protect journalists. Thank you very much interview. Based in Beirut, Lebanon reason said about Beirut Lebanon, because we have the national criminal about a Hariri was assassinated. But in this case, we have more evidence about has you case who was murdered in the embassy and instead of going through the sanction route international tribunal could be. At least. Agreed upon or at least we should take the legal you've been in the congress to have. Or whatever. Turkey by itself, by the way, called for such thing. So I think protecting journalists probably the legal approach with an international law or. It's more probably acceptable either nationally, then sometimes the selective application of sanction on on certain country to be perceived as really selective morality or selective. Justice. I can take that. I think when I was a US diplomat the prime example, the critics of the United States pointed to to argue that America was selective in its use of human rights tools with Saudi Arabia. So I think if we are if we use a strong human rights tool against Saudi Arabia, actually, a fairly good example of the United States. Placing values ahead of its relationships. It would not be seen as selective that said if there were an international judicial or legal mechanism that could be applied here. I would be very strongly supportive of that. My guess is that it would be harder in practice to put that into place because I doubt that Saudi Arabia would cooperate. I doubt that they would produce suspects to be to be tried especially since the chief suspect is potentially the absolute ruler of the country for the next fifty years. If if that is allowed to happen. And so the Magnitsky sanctions tool becomes something that we know is at least available to us, even as we pursue other traditional mechanisms with response to your question around the international role. So at the committee to protect her analysts. We don't believe that there is only one path to Justice for the murder of Jamal choke. She in so we have called for an international United Nations criminal investigation by the secretary general. We held a press conference at the UN with Human Rights, Watch reporters without borders and amnesty calling for this we've met with the secretary general's office and with several Member States, and we understand that Turkey has expressed its openness to that. So we would like to see the UN secretary general launched their own investigation. I think that the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial killing and her initial fact-finding mission to Turkey indicates again that there is very significant. Evidence that the crown prince was involved and so further the call for an international criminal investigations, though. I don't think that it's an either or it's both. Right here in the Thai. Thank you very much. Alex hasn't independent newsagents Toronto. And appreciate. According to case, I think we should keep in mind that imam Ali of sedation. We had a congressional action. Durbin amendment was actually calling everyone every single person involved in his case could be sanctuary. I think that's strong. Government took it. Quite smart little that. Hey, you know, they they are they gonna come after president everybody involved. So my question that my colleague from Russia. Us. We know about what we know about John contests where the first family MAC. They are the ones ordering is no res- or they decide who gets in an obstacle in this station. Going after some small, let's say let's say highlights somewhat smaller. Listen officials really. Doesn't restart effective. If you go after the robot. Discussing you know? Money that we have another draws in prison. I've come what what we heard from his? Station. In jail that some high level officials in jail are basically trying to get involved into Turtur because they are to a fact that they might get promoted because names will get out of their governments with talk about them. They don't have an interest. They they don't wanna company US in the first place. So is that how much should we align on knowledge about how conscious being managed and what kind of assets do they have what I go off of that? When we think about sanctions on my second question, if you don't mind, I appreciate the congressman being here. And thank you for being involved. We heard for missing last weekend. He drew a red line against those who are naming his crown prince. And I think this is sweat. And I also think it's actually about congress because congress just passenger solution, and ultimately, how would you respond threat? What we will respond to that threat. I hope by passing legislation that crosses his red line. Congressman Tom Malinowski threatened members of congress. If you want to influence us, that's a very very bad idea on your first point around. You know, how this is being used having meant to answer beige on twice including on press freedom mission related to to journalists who are in prison. I think that. The interest that the alley family house and visiting Europe and vacationing there and all of that indicates how important it could be for the EU to adopt as the more type of legislation. I mean, I think US global Magnitsky act is great if you have that relationship with the United States, and if you keep your money here, and if you own real estate or all all of these other interests, but again, it will improve an strengthen the impact if we can see this globally..
