5/13/21 Ben Freeman on Saudi Arabia’s Covert Influence in American Politics

by | May 16, 2021 | Interviews

Scott interviews Ben Freeman about his research into the Saudi lobby’s activity in American politics. Freeman explains that while it’s illegal for foreign governments to donate directly to politicians in this country, it’s easy to get around these restrictions by hiring firms in the U.S. to make contributions and to lobby on behalf of governments like Saudi Arabia. Freeman has found hundreds of such filings per year, totaling tens of millions of dollars in contributions. He reminds us that all of this activity contributes to painting Saudi Arabia in a positive light while they continue to perpetrate war crimes against the people of Yemen.
