EMBARGOED!: China Potpourri: Securities, Phantoms, and TikTok



In the penultimate episode of 2020, Brian and Tim share their initial impressions of the new E.O. restricting U.S. person securities transactions involving Communist Chinese Military Companies, discuss the "phantom" Military End-User List that may or may not be issued by BIS, and ask "What's up with TikTok?" after another preliminary injunction and near radio silence from CFIUS. Then, in the Lightning Round, we give quick takes on the assassination of Iran's top nuclear scientist and its possible impact on President-elect Biden's Iran agenda and bring things back around to China with brief reflections on the latest Hong Kong- and North Korea-related sanctions designations.
