Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco says DOJ will hold perpetrators accountable..all levels.

From Axios Article 5 hrs ago:

What they're saying: Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said on Monday that the Jan. 6 investigation is "among the most wide-ranging and most complex that this department has ever undertaken."

She added: "Regardless of whatever resources we seek or get, let's be very, very clear: We are going to continue to do those cases. We are going to hold those perpetrators accountable, no matter where the facts lead us, [and] as the attorney general has said, no matter at what level. We will do those cases."

Looking like Putin wrote a check his army can't cover.

I hope China doesn’t quietly try to bail him out.

Can we do better to help a fellow DUer?

Folks,

I’m reposting this go fund me from a couple of days ago on behalf of a fellow DUer. Let’s reunite Alex with his wife he hasn’t seen in 2 years! After donating a couple days ago, I haven’t been able to get him and his wife out of my mind. If you aren’t in a spot to kick in you can still help by sharing the gofundme link on Facebook and Twitter!

Thanks! MLAA

UK sanction loophole of 30 day 'wind down period'

Note: Another DUer posted about this earlier today, but don’t think it got enough notice. Thank you to that poster. I will try and find their post and the edit this post

UPDATE: I couldn’t figure out how to search DU to try and find the original post on this topic.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced last Thursday that the state-owned VTB Bank, which is the second-largest Russian bank and its largest investment bank, was the subject of a “full and immediate” asset freeze in the UK as part of the Government’s attempts to help derail Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine by targeting key finance houses.

But the following day the Treasury unit in charge of enforcing the UK’s sanctions quietly issued a 30-day licence granting permission for any individual or entity to “wind down any transactions” with VTB until 27 March.
