Steve Schmidt is a long time #GOP campaign operative who's now working for Mercury Public Affairs.

Mack shows how there's an agreement with Oleg Deripaska's company & Mercury Public Affairs. The oligarch pays them over $100k a month, but that's the beginning of this story.
Mercury Public Affairs is also linked to Paul #Manafort's pro-Russian party lobbying efforts in 2015. Manafort pumped $2.2M into Podesta's group and Mercury.

You know that Chinese telecom company that Donald lifted the sanctions on in July 2018? ZTE? Guess who is their PR firm? If you guessed Mercury, you're right.
Back in May, the company started giving Mercury $75k a month.
It looks like many of the (R) that lost their seats in November of 2018 ran straight to lobbying firms. I would assume many went to Mercury.

There is a bit of light at the end of this dark tunnel. It appears that the #MuellerInvestigation is on the tail of both the Podesta group and Mercury Public Affairs.

I am assuming that this isn't the end of the dirty dealings going on in DC. Seems that the (R) party is ripe with slimy swamp creatures & the person who vowed to "Drain the Swamp" is only throwing fresh meat their way.
Update: Guess who else works for Mercury Public Affairs? Former Representative Vin Weber (R-MN). In fact: his signature is on the Ukraine deal that Manafort brokered. Hmm interesting.
