I don’t know enough about this to pass judgement, even if I would.
Do I trust him? No.
Do I know enough about this to call him a criminal? No.

He’s saying that the courts are corrupt and venal and that what he did wasn’t a crime in the UK and that is wasn’t really a crime in the US. Originally he was convicted of stealing millions, and he said now, presumably after appeals and whatnot, it was down to $280 thousand.

He is arrogant to the point of acting sociopathic. Clearly he’s very smart. He acts like a lawyer. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. He’s a good actor. He’s rich, and he really doesn’t give a shit about what anyone thinks of him. And why should he? He’s rich enough to have what he wants no matter what anyone else thinks about it.

What’s interesting is that it’s like watching a slow motion train wreck. Two males with massive egos trying to prove they can’t be beaten by the other. Oddly, is was fascinating and boring at the same time. Fascinating to the animal behaviorist in me. Boring to the policy wonk.
