But Jeff Sessions bumped into the Russian ambassador at a conference!
Via Free Beacon:
A number of top Democratic lobbyist bundlers, who together pulled in millions of dollars for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and donated generously to Democratic leaders, personally represent or work at firms that have represented Russian interests in recent years, according to a review of foreign agent registration filings.
Several powerful lobbyists who have pushed millions of dollars into Democratic coffers have ties to foreign banks and governments.
Emanuel “Mike” Manatos, the senior vice president of Manatos & Manatos, a D.C.-based government relations firm, bundled tens of thousands for Clinton’s campaign.
“Mike Manatos has orchestrated efforts that set numerous records in the policymaking process of the U.S. Senate, House of Representatives and the Executive Branch as he moved clients’ issues forward,” the company’s website states. “This record of success for clients’ issues has attracted some of the world’s and America’s leading individuals and organizations to ask Manatos & Manatos to oversee the handling of their issues in Washington, D.C.”
One of those clients was the VTB Group, a Russian financial group that includes the VTB Bank—a large financial institution that is majority-owned by the Russian government.
