  • Chat on CNBC’s Squawk Box about the sanctions introduced under the Countering America’s Allies Through Adversaries Act (CAATSA) and the so-called ‘Oligarchs list’ released by the Trump administration as part of it.
  • Quoted by RFE/RL discussing the so-called ‘Oligarchs list’ as saying it will label those affected as ‘politically-exposed persons’ but the overly wide net cast will take away much of its impact here.  I gave similar quotes to Vice News here.
