Dmitro Firtash isn't a whistleblower but a Russian Mobster. You joined his team and you let your FARA filing elapse; a new one isn't filed. That's a felony.

To answer your question, Counselor, the whistleblower's attorneys are representing a U.S. citizen legally, while you're in violation of 18 U.S. Code § 951.Agents of foreign governments.

Depending on how the prosecutors see it, your unregistered work subverting the U.S. government could be 18 U.S. Code Chapter 37 § 794 Gathering or delivering defense information to aid foreign government, or at least the Logan Act, illegally representing U.S. foreign policy.

Working "off the books" solely for Trump and Fruity G to keep a faction out of prison by creating your own private U.S. foreign policy for a Mobster's benefit seems to conform squarely to 18 U.S. Code § 953.Private correspondence with foreign governments, enacted 1799.
