Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed John D. O’Connor.
A society must understand the lessons of its history so as to avoid or rectify its mistakes.
The recent Russian invasion of Ukraine presents such an opportunity. But are American media outlets discussing the import of the 1994 Budapest Memorandum, signed by President Bill Clinton and Ukraine, or the 2010 reaffirmation of it by President Barack Obama? Or the causes of the 2014 Crimean annexation by Russia? America has much to learn about these recent events.
Kevin Price introduces Price of Business show recurring guest, John D. O’Connor. O’Connor was the famed attorney of Watergate’s “Deep Throat.
According to PostGateBook.com “O’Connor served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Northern California from 1974-1979, representing the United States in both criminal and civil cases. Among his interesting assignments have been representation of the government during the OPEC oil embargo of the 1970s; writing Fifth Amendment and “state of mind” briefs for the prosecution in United States v. Patricia Hearst; representing the FDIC, FSLC and RTC during the savings and loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s; representing California Attorney General Dan Lungren in campaign-related litigation; defending R.J. Reynolds Tobacco in significant smoking and health litigation; representing Coach Don Nelson in litigation with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban; and representing W.
