10. yes, you'd need to prove that the gift was intended to gain russian regulatory approval

or some other type of benefit from the russian government.

prudent businesses don't do such things because they don't want the appearance of impropriety and they don't want to invite scrutiny and an investigations, but it's not illegal if the gift was not given in an attempt to gain anything from the foreign government.


if donnie were a competent criminal, it would be very difficult to prove a violation of the fcpa in this regard.

donnie being donnie, and surrounding himself with incompetents, there's probably an email that says, "if all it costs to get all the permits we need is one stupid penthouse for putin, then sign me up and close the deal!"
