Russian collusion? Lanny Davis reportedly making bank as a registered foreign agent for Putin-tied oligarch

Robert Mueller’s Russia probe has apparently uncovered some Russian collusion. Except it doesn’t involve the 2016 Trump campaign, but rather, Michael Cohen’s lawyer Lanny Davis, a longtime friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Davis is the co-founder and partner of his name-sake law firm, Davis Goldberg & Galper. The law firm is a current, active, registered foreign agent for Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash, a close ally of Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Records indicate Michael Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis (r.) is an active registered foreign agent for Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash, a comrade of Russian president Vladimir Putin.
Russian collusion? Michael Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis (r.) is an active registered foreign agent for Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash, a comrade of Russian president Vladimir Putin. Davis is Hillary Clinton’s longtime pal.

The revelations were made in FARA records (Foreign Agents Registration Act) uncovered by the Conservative Review’s Jordan Schachtel and One American News correspondent Jack Posobiec.

Lanny Davis, a longtime Democratic operative, has been noisily calling for President Trump’s impeachment, claiming he’s involved in Russian collusion.

Meanwhile, Robert Mueller’s investigation has produced no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion. It has, however, resulted in charges of tax evasion and bank fraud by former Trump aides Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen, who is Davis’ client. (These charges have nothing to do with Russian collusion.)

Davis’ law firm is a registered foreign agent that pockets roughly $1 million a year to lobby the U.S. government on behalf of one of Vladimir Putin’s closest allies, Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash.

Firtash is under indictment in the United States for bribing government officials and is fighting extradition from his residence in Austria.

“When Davis spews propaganda targeting POTUS legitimacy, is he not helping Russia spread discord in USA?” Jordan Schachtel tweeted.

Schachtel is the national security correspondent for the Conservative Review and an editor at CRTV. In 2016, Schachtel resigned from Breitbart to protest what he called its pro-Trump leanings, so he’s not exactly an avid Trump supporter.

While Democrats have repeatedly claimed that the 2016 Trump campaign colluded with Russia (despite no evidence), pro-Russia oligarch Dmytro Firtash wired Lanny Davis $80,000 on October, 24th, 2016 — two weeks before the presidential election.

Was the payment to influence the U.S. election at the bidding of a foreign power?  “Interesting timing, yes?” Schachtel wondered.

Additional FARA records show Lanny Davis personally lobbied for pro-Putin puppet Dmytro Firtash.

A damning money trail suggests Lanny Davis is promoting the interests of a foreign power to the United States government. That should immediately cast doubt on where his true allegiance lies, especially now that he’s actively working to undermine a sitting United States president.

“Lanny Davis claims Michael Cohen as his client, but who is he primarily working for?” Schachtel asked. Good question.

While the mainstream media are screeching that Michael Cohen’s plea deal for bank fraud and campaign finance violations somehow implicates President Trump, Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz poured cold water on their giddy dreams of an impeachment.

Dershowitz, a lifelong liberal who voted for Hillary Clinton, said President Trump has committed no impeachable offenses, as BizReview previously reported.

Moreover, Dershowitz — an internationally recognized Constitutional Law scholar — underscored that Trump did not violate campaign finance laws, even if his former lawyer Michael Cohen did.

“If the president had paid $280,000 to these two women — even if he had done so in order to help his campaign — that would be no problem,” Dershowitz told Fox News’ Special Report. “The candidate is entitled to contribute a million dollars to his own campaign, as long as he reports it.”
