The government of Angola, an African nation in the southern part of the continent bordering the Atlantic Ocean, has retained one of the biggest lobbying firms in Washington, DC, to help it clean up a mess it created when the nation severely harmed a number of American companies operating in Angola.

In fact, some lawmakers intend to ask the president, per someone who has spoken multiple GOP U.S. Senators on the matter, to invoke Magnitsky Act sanctions against individuals in Angola responsible for harm to U.S. companies.
