Marathon Strategies has been providing media support for Egypt’s Washington embassy.
The New York firm, which has close ties to the Democratic party, operated as a subcontractor to lobbying firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, which represents Egypt's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
BHFS hauled in $400K from Egypt during the six-month period ended Feb. 28.
Marathon, which did not have a formal agreement, pitched op-eds to CNN, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Bloomberg, The Atlantic, Fox News, CBS and the Guardian on behalf of the Egyptians.
Egyptian president Abdel Fatah al-Sissi has faced criticism for his harsh crackdown on dissidents.
Phil Singer, Marathon founder/managing director, and VP Joshua Rosen worked the Egyptian business.
Singer used to handle press, for now, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and played roles in the presidential campaigns of John Kerry/Hillary Clinton and gubernatorial races of Andrew Cuomo.
