    Are the Americans who receive money to lobby these causes (such as anti-Magnitsky) too lazy/unmotivated to research them, or are they completely devoid of conscience? Not necessarily an either-or type of question, I would guess that there's an entire spectrum there.

I expect there's a spectrum, yes. But I also think there's a broader cultural issue ... we just don't care about white collar crime very much, except for the occasional Madoff we have to throw to the lions.
