Welcome to the only roundtable podcast in compliance. Today, we have a quartet of Matt Kelly, Jonathan Marks, Mike Volkov and special guest panelist Kortney Nordrum for a deep dive into the recent President Biden Statement and Memorandum making corruption a national security issue. We end with a veritable mélange of rants and shouts outs.

1. Mike Volkov looks at it from the regulatory/prosecutorial perspective and what it might mean for enforcement. Volkov rants about the DOJ investigations into Democratic members of Congress under the Trump Administration.

2. Jonathan Marks says that everything in the President’s Statement should not be surprise but it is a wakeup call for BODs. Marks shouts out to the FBI for recovering the bitcoin payment made by Colonial Pipeline to the cyber hackers who breached it.

3. Kortney Nordrum sits in as a special guest panelist. She looks at the Statement and Memorandum from the perspective a CCO. Nordrum rants about OSHA who after promising guidance for companies on return to work after Covid-19, only does so for health care organizations.

4. Matt Kelly considers the Statement and Memorandum from cryptocurrency perspective and considers what additional legislation might come out of the national security review. Kelly has his own epic rant about Texas’ own Congressman Louis Gohmert who asked a Department of Forestry representative if they had looked at altering the orbit of the earth or moon to combat the effects of climate change.

5. Tom Fox shouts out to the Department of Justice who indicted two US citizens who were engaged in bribery and corruption in trying to persuade the Trump Administration to order the DOJ to drop its investigation into 1MDB. See less -
