About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller, international explorer, and humanitarian and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does.  As a trial lawyer, its his most important tool.  As a former CIA officer, the only way to truly motivate people is to connect and to tell them a story that they can feel viscerally.  As a media analyst, what better way to make a point.  In the end, he tries to captivate his audience about the world and its people as much as he himself is captivated.

[NTV Broadcasting Moscow] November 2nd: Jack Talks Paul Manafort

I appear on NTV Moscow on November 2nd.  This promises to be an interesting conversation for a whole series of reasons. First and foremost, NTV is one of the networks that has been accused of using its platform for Russian propaganda. As a result, I was very conscious that they might be slanted in a particular direction. However, I must add that I have seen bias to one degree or another on many many networks. That bias can be on viewpoint and sometimes on what stories they tell versus what stories they ignore.  

In this case, they absolutely wanted to talk about Paul Manafort which I found fascinating. My focus was on the money laundering aspect of it rather than on the political piece involving the former Ukranian President.  I even talked a bit about the realities of the political in the hunt for evidence of Russian collusion and how that helped provide additional resources to focus in on Manafort. 

This was truly a wild conversation.
