So far, despite casting an ever-wider net, Robert Mueller’s search for evidence of Russian collusion has come up empty. The special counsel has managed to bring in a couple of smaller fish to appease the ravenous appetites of the salivating masses on the Left, but those who lust to dine on fillet of Trump continue to go hungry.
Now at last evidence of collusion with Russia has surfaced, though it’s not quite what the Trump haters had in mind.
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.
Firtash’s ties to Putin have been exposed in several investigate reports. Moreover, the Ukrainian’s 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.
Lanny Davis is co-founder and partner of the law firm of Davis Goldberg & Galper. I just checked FARA records. His firm is a registered *ACTIVE* foreign agent for Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash, who is a close ally of Russian pres Vladimir Putinhttps://t.co/PKHpeaCi7r

In a profile of Davis, The Washington Post dubs him “the ultimate Clinton loyalist,” adding:
For much of his adult life, he has fashioned himself as a Clinton warrior, serving as White House counsel during Bill’s early crises and as a surrogate for Hillary’s presidential campaigns. In February, Hillary Clinton attended a party celebrating the release of Davis’s book. … Now he has been handed a chance to help vanquish the man who defeated her in 2016, the man who led his rally crowds to chant “lock her up.”
As principal lobbyist for Firtash, Davis draws a monthly paycheck of $60,000, plus expenses, totaling around a million dollars a year. More interesting still is a report by a Ukrainian news site indicating that Firtash wired him $80,000 just two weeks before the 2016 presidential election.
Owing to Davis’s long-held ties to the woman who ran against Trump in the 2016 election, his fiduciary arrangement with a Ukrainian oligarch might be worth Mueller’s time to look into — or at least it would be if the special counsel were genuinely in knowing the truth.
