Mueller calls out Mercury

Just over a year ago, a spokesperson for lobbying powerhouse Mercury LLC was emphatic: His firm never worked for the Ukrainian strongman Viktor Yanukovych, who played a major role in making Paul Manafort notorious.

That was in response to a query after reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team had subpoenaed Mercury as part of its investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign.

Mercury LLC partner Mike McKeon replied, saying he would be fielding media queries about federal filings showing the firm had introduced Viktor Klyuyev, a parliamentarian in Yanukovych’s party and the brother of his former chief of staff, to Congressional offices. He added: “But please note that we never worked or did PR for Yanukovich.”

Court filings released Friday indicate Special Counsel Robert Mueller would not believe that statement. Communications between lobbyists revealed in those filings indicate employees at Mercury LLC understood they were working on behalf of Yanukovych, who had jailed his political opponent and drawn condemnation throughout the Western world. And those lobbyists appear to have known they weren’t complying with federal disclosure law.
