The law firm advising Trump on his business conflicts was named 'Russia Law Firm of the Year' in 2016

The global law firm advising President-elect Donald Trump on his business conflicts apparently has a great working relationship with Russia. Shortly after Trump's press conference Wednesday, it surfaced that his attorney's firm, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, was named "Russia Law Firm of the Year" in 2016 by the law profession directory Chambers & Partners for its "high-profile" work in Russia.

Just let that sink in for a second: While Trump defended himself against allegations he'd colluded with Russia to win the presidential election and denied rumors that Russia has amassed damning information about him, a lawyer from Russia's law firm of the year was standing by his side.
