Patten, 47, pleaded guilty in August to communicating with USA lawmakers and news media organizations on behalf of a Russia-aligned political party in Ukraine called the Opposition Bloc without disclosing that work to the Justice Department, in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), among other offenses.
Craig maintains that he never concealed information or misled the Justice Department, and he is confident he'll beat the charges. Trump and his allies have seized on the fact that the special counsel investigation has led to an indictment against a figure closely tied to both Obama and the Clintons. The case is part of a foreign lobbying investigation spun off from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. Charges were filed by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington.
Craig allegedly lied to the special counsel's team during an interview previous year about legal work that he did for the Ukrainian government in 2012 after leaving the White House to join Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, a New York-based law firm. The case was investigated by the FBI's NY field office and is being prosecuted by the USA attorney's office in Washington, D.C.

The firm allegedly was involved in crafting a report that sought to validate Yanukovich's decision to have the government prosecute and subsequently imprison former prime minister and rival Yulia Tymoshenko.
Craig's two felony charges stem from work he did on behalf of the Ukrainian government and in coordination with Paul Manafort, the former campaign manager to President Donald Trump. Manafort made the report the centerpiece of a lobbying campaign to improve Yanukovych's reputation in the West, which had suffered as a result of his treatment of Tymoshenko. Furthermore, Craig's charge of making false statements to the government is the same crime that Michael Flynn pled guilty for.
In a videotaped statement uploaded to YouTube on Thursday, Craig asserted that the report was "independent", and denied helping Ukraine spin the information it contained.
His former law firm has paid over $4.6 million and acknowledged that it failed to register as a foreign agent for Ukraine.
