Among the statements made during this broadcast is the following by Bret Stephens:

We want to accelerate the collapse of the Putin regime.  That should be the principal goal of American policy.  That is actually a pro-Russia policy because Putin preys on his own middle class, on his own people, and of course, as we know, on his own neighbors.  One of the things we'd like to do is accelerate capital flight out of Russia.  We're looking at 70 billion dollars worth of capital flight.  We want to penalize the oligarchs who are close to Putin and maybe handling a lot of Kremlin money.  And most of all what we want to be doing is increasing not only the supply of natural gas and oil here at home but also our trade with Western Europe, countries that are heavily dependent right now on those Russian energy supplies.
