Former U.S. Senator Lott's firm represents Russian bank

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Russian bank is now a client of a lobbying firm where former U.S. Senator Trent Lott works.

Lott told us his firm does represent the Russian bank Gazprombank, but he will not be doing any work with the company.   

The bank is the target of U.S. sanctions from President Obama.

Lott says other employees of the Squire, Patton, Boggs firm will provide legal and consultant work for the Russian bank, with the exception of lobbying.
