EMBARGOED!: Russia Invades Ukraine and Triggers the Biggest Week in Economic Sanctions History


After a tumultuous and historic week, Brian and Tim gather themselves to discuss the U.S. (and global) response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. They start by diving in to the broad, coordinated economic sanctions aimed at debilitating Russia's financial sector and Putin's inner circle, debate how well the new measures will work, and contemplate what could be coming next. They next turn to the significant expansion of export controls implicating Russia and discuss the likely impact. Finally, in the Lightning Round, Brian and Tim bid farewell to DOJ's China Initiative and read between the lines to decipher DOJ's ongoing priorities.
