EMBARGOED!: Fantastically Astute Questions (and Answers)


In EMBARGOED!'s inaugural FAQ episode, hosts Brian Fleming and Tim O'Toole tackle a wide array of questions and give actual, coherent answers (or try to, anyway; you decide). Questions cover: brand new restrictions on U.S. exports of PPE in response to the COVID-19 crisis; other COVID-19-related export control considerations in the medical research field; the U.S.'s proposed democratic transition framework for Venezuela and prospects for sanctions relief; a significant sanctions penalty out of the U.K. against Standard Chartered; the three most notable aspects of the "weird" Cuba sanctions program; prospects for leniency from U.S. enforcers for trade-related violations during the COVID-19 crisis; and is it possible to sue your way off the SDN List?
