Pompeo: Saudis committed to 'accountability' over journalist's disappearance
"Took place in their consulate. I guess he doesn't say that. He believed it, but he did say in his statement, we had direct and candid conversations, I emphasize the importance of conducting a thorough transparent untimely investigation and the Saudi leadership pledged to deliver precisely on that. There are some precedents here for sanctions with teeth the Magnitsky act twenty twelve that was a bipartisan Bill passed in the US congress signed into law by President Obama and that punished Russian officials responsible for the death of Russian tax accountant Serguei Magnitsky in a Moscow prison that was back in two thousand nine that allowed basically the government to sanction human rights offenders freeze their assets and ban them from entering the US. So there there is some precedent. And again, this becomes the question. Morality over money. I mean you, and I and Lindsey Graham agree that there should be some sanctions, but not everybody feels that way possibly including our president.

Under fire Danske Bank faces fresh money laundering inquiry
"Power of these tech companies. Now you bring up the fact that they're becoming a media company. And of course we had AT and t. Time Warner merger which included CNN and of what the judge said in his ruling was looking at the outsized power of these companies in the digital advertising space. You see that response, but is regulation. The right strategy are finds the right strategy is any of that going to make a difference when you consider how large the market capitalization of these four or five companies are. So when you have a company like Google with one hundred billion dollars in cash and you find five billion dollars, what you're actively telling Google to do is to continue to break the law. If you had a parking meter in front of your house, that cost one hundred dollars an hour, but the ticket was twenty five cents. You would continue to break the law and that's what we've been telling these companies to do with fines. That might sound large dollar terms, but in terms of impact aren't that large, you ask what we should do. I believe regulation has unintended consequences. I think GDP are has actually emboli. And strengthen these companies position. I believe that the future to oxygen eight, the marketplace is to break these guys up. I think antitrust action is the way to go that there is a real risk of that. Now, I know that the US attorney general Jeff Sessions having a meeting with states attorneys generals next week to discuss this very topic restarting to hear that word, antitrust rebates starting to hear the word monopoly associated with some of these companies. Is that a growing regulatory risk for these mega tech companies? Could you actually see them getting broken up? I used to think there was no way because Amazon is eighty eight fulltime lobbyists in DC. We in the US I would say suffer a little bit from what I call this gross idolatry of innovators and billionaires. We see them as our heroes, but I do think there is a movement of foot now, whether it happens out of DC, I would say most likely, no. I think the pushback is gonna come out of Brussels and possibly a red state. We're an attorney general in that state's he's at the brightest blue line path. The governor's mansion is to make an argument against these tech. Companies to quite frankly probably haven't been good. Have they been going for California? Yes, New York s? Has it been good for Kansas? What's happened to the ad agencies? The retailers, the businesses in those states. I think a lot of these red states have decided, you know, big tech it. We've been net losers here, so I don't think it's going to come out at DC at might the DOJ should absolutely do its job. The call to restrain. The acquisition of this company was read in comparison to the power of these other companies. So I actually do believe there's there is a non zero probability now that the DOJ or the FTC or a state AG Michael after these companies and accused him of anticompetitive behavior and propose antitrust and breaking up as a solution. It's an interesting paradox because you have Amazon yet to announce the second location for its headquarters, and you have, you know, local mayors and governors of morning Amazon at the same time. You see it coming under increasing potential enemy trust scrutiny and other bad headlines following it as well. Do you. You see public opinion changing at all toward the power of these big tough tech companies. While at the same time, we're also dependent on the warm is absolutely turned two years ago. The only argument was is more Christ. Like we're going to be the next president among their see is really the weaponization of the Facebook platform by the GRU of the Russian government changed everything. And now. Oh, citizens. Citizens have are starting to feel a lot more wary about these firms, but you brought up an interesting point the competition to be the host of the next age. Q. and regulation are linked Stephanie because the next headquarters for Amazon will be Washington DC, the metro area, and the reason why, and it was always going to be DC is one the basis have a home there, and CEO gets to pick with a company. Second headquarters are going to be. And so the only thing standing in between Amazon, Amazon's valuation of one trillion in two trillion is regulation, and no one is going to regulate the individual. The throws out the first pitch at the two thousand nineteen opening game of the Washington nationals which will be Jeff Bezos. This competition was a Reuss to transfer wealth from fire departments and school departments to this shareholders of Amazon. It was always going to be DC. This has been a terrible abuse of the Commonwealth. And how many lobbyists does Amazon have in DC right now. Last check Eighty-eight fulltime lobbyists in DC, Scott Galloway. We're gonna have to see if you're right on that. It's going to be embarrassing of announce big Indianapolis. Well, DC could certainly use the jobs, Scott. Thank you so much. Thank you. Let's turn to Europe and the massive money laundering case that shaking the financial world is he? Oh, of Dansk of Bank is out a new report from the firm details.

And so let's as we warned you and our previous episode expect Ivanka Jared chew position her to be the first female president, and I totally predict that what they're gonna do is they're going to have this whole charm offensive in the media when that time comes and they're gonna blame everything on her father and said, it wasn't us.

"We have a team of forensic investigators here that I manage, and we've been doing this rate Naff years when I when I find the money, we filed very detailed criminal complaints with the law enforcement agencies of those countries. We try to convince those countries to open criminal investigations to freeze the money into prosecute the people benefited from it. And since we started that process, we've found the money, I would say more or less. We found all the money we've traced to about twenty six different countries. There are now fifteen live investigations going on around the world and not only does this expose the the crime that Sergei Magnitsky was killed over, but we've effectively exposed the entire Putin money laundering pipe to the west and a lot of other illicit funds of through those pipes. And to the extent that Putin is mad at me. He's probably equally mad about the Magnitsky act and the fact that there are now fifteen live investigations going on about his dirty money around the world, right when bladder Putin rails against the Magnitsky act and you know hollers about it and invokes you does that actually help your all. It may not be personally pleasant for you end up backfiring on him and helping your cause big time, big time. And so people haven't asked me well, so like who's the best advocate for your cause in the world? And my answer's simple as Latimer Putin. So he's, I mean, I think we've established that he's a at least some people think he's a clever guy in strategically and tactically smart. Why does he do it? Well, I think you're, you're overestimating him a bit, or people are overestimating him a bit. He's not stupid for sure, but is not strategic. He's very tactical and he's also very emotional and very reflexive. And so there's a thing that goes on in Russia, which is like, if you do something, they have to do something back to you just like nobody can like wait quietly for their next move. And so everything we do, our provokes a reaction and every reaction that we provoke ends up creating more sympathy for the cause more awareness of the cause. I mean, after Putin mentioned me in Helsinki at started, getting phone calls from politicians in European countries that I've been working on all saying Putin showed his cards. We now know how much he cares about this to the extent that anyone was questioning the efficacy of the Magnitsky act. If he's bringing you up and he's bringing up Magnitsky than then, it's obviously good thing. How do we get moving on this thing? No, I think when you mentioned on the show last time that it gets under Putin skin, I'm sure that some listeners were skeptical and thought, well, it sounds very self important on routers part. How'd you know he's a powerful person. He leads a decent sized country as you have said, he has twenty billion dollars potentially in holdings around the world. So how can this get under skin? And then when he affirms that and makes it obviously true gives you a lot of credibility. I tell you something really funny is that I got a lot of a lot of phone calls from journalists before the summit kind of coming to me as a person who knows Putin. Well, as a Russian expert commentator, you know, asking me questions and so on sort of couple days before the summit..

This and it was how Bill Browder was working with Sergei Magnitsky of the Magnitsky act that. I talk about over and over again and. Magnitsky ended up being your tortured and killed etcetera and you had sanctions in all of the. Stop because, people who supported Magnitsky in Russia they were poisoned and they were shot in front of the Kremlin, and naming you know like seriously shady sketchy stuff this is why you treat Russia as geopolitical foe and the Bill Browder was. The guy, that he wanted to push for the, Magnitsky act to make sure. That people who were responsible for all of this and responsible for because Sergei Magnitsky who had discovered some some. Criminal, activity by Kremlin linked companies and he was a Russian, lawyer he's he discovered like millions of dollars of tax staffed and all of these people were very. Very closely associated of Ladimir Putin and so- fusion GPS has has. A ton of Russian associations and they went after Bill Browder ended after the, death of Magnitsky and pushing the Magnitsky act they went after Browder and he was the guy who led the charge for that he he was opposed by the Obama administration the, Clinton.
