Lanny Davis, the longtime Clinton confidant who is also the attorney for former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, is on the payroll of a pro-Moscow Ukrainian oligarch with direct ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
According to Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) records reviewed by Conservative Review, Davis is an active registered foreign agent for Ukrainian billionaire Dmytro Firtash. A review of his social media records shows that Davis has never tweeted about his Ukrainian client, seemingly preferring to advocate quietly for Firtash, who faces enormous legal issues in courtrooms across the world.
Firtashs ties to Putin have been exposed in several investigate reports. Moreover, the Ukrainians deeply corrupt business practices have put him on the radar of U.S. authorities, who are currently demanding his extradition to Chicago to face bribery charges.
Firtash, like many oligarchs tied to Moscow, owes much of his financial success to the Putin regime. Over the course of his business career, Firtash has secured sweetheart deals with major Russian state-owned energy companies, which filled the Ukrainians pockets with billions of dollars. The investment into Firtash paid off big-time, from a geopolitical perspective. He played an integral role in securing victory in the 2010 Ukrainian presidential election for Russian puppet Viktor Yanukovych. Following a popular uprising in 2014, Yanukovych fled the country. He now lives in exile in Russia.
Lanny Davis has been the principle lobbyist for Mr. Firtash since at least June 2014, which, notably, is just a few months after Yanukovych was thrown out of office. During that time period, Davis was earning $60,000 per month from Firtash. That number was expected to be boosted to $80,000 per month, plus expenses (around one million dollars per year), when Davis re-registered as Firtashs chief lobbyist in 2016. That contract remains active to this day.

Hillary ? LOL
Hillary and Russia. Absurd.
Whole thing is absurd and crazy.
Lanny Davis is a Clinton lawyer, a fixer for the Clintons, politically close enough to be an official surrogate for Hillary in past campaigns. Davis and the Clintons go back to their Yale law school days together.
How can he then be the defense attorney for someone accused of helping to defeat his long term associate and political ally?
It is surreal. How a judge let this obvious conflict of interest pass is a big question.
It’s like a communist show trial with defense and prosecution both on the same side against the defendant.
And then it gets more crazy in that both Davis and Manafort have worked for this Ukrainian Putin ally.
Both of them.
It is incestuous deep state garbage.
Good grief. Talk about Russia collusion. Not only is Davis a pigeon for the Clintons, he is a tool of a Russian oligarch.
Hopefully this infornmation will make it to the good guys to broadcast far and wide.
Why wasn’t Brennan investigating the Clinton campaign? He really was a bad CIA director.
Hey Sessions, you usless puke, real Russian collusion is happening - on the Dem side of the aisle. Are you really so stupid, incompetent, or lazy (I suspect all three) that youd rather have the Mueller circus continue rather than look into it? Apparently so.
Oh, I should have included corrupt or compromised in my list of Sessions character...
I know you are being facetious. Brennan set this whole thing up for Hussein and cankles.
It doesn’t make sense. He should step down on his own. What is up with that guy.
None dare call it collusion.
There's that word Ukraine again.
$80,000 a month for being a RAT. He wasn’t in congress, but I can see how some there must run for office, just so they can be obscenely paid lobbyists when they retire/get kicked out.
Possibly Davis knew the prosecutors or their boss and was able to cut a deal as long as he tried to embarrass Trump.
Disgusting! Toady is the nicest thing I can call him.
It is something the damn FBI and DOJ should be all over not to mention our CIA.
Lanny makes my skin crawl whenever I hear his whiny Marxist Liberal voice.
