Nicolas "Nick" David Muzin is a Canadian-born Republican political strategist, attorney and physician. He was a paid foreign agent for Qatar. Prior to that, he served as the director of coalitions for the United States House Republican Conference and was a senior adviser and deputy chief of staff for strategy for current the failed candidacy of Republican candidate for President of the United States Sen. Ted Cruz. Muzin was raised in a Jewish family in Toronto, Ontario.
In 2000, Muzin found himself supporting the Al Gore / Joe Lieberman ticket, but found himself gravitating towards the conservative side of the aisle while in Yale. He joined George W. Bush’s 2004 reelection campaign as counsel for the Republican National Committee and served as a medical adviser for the 2008 presidential campaign of Sen. John McCain. From 2005 to 2008, Muzin was of council at Williams & Connolly.
In February 2018, it was reported by Haaretz and The Times of Israel that the Qatari Government had hired Nick Muzin to improve the Emirates's relations with the Trump Administration and the Jewish American community. Muzin's work reportedly included arranging meetings between Qatari officials and leaders of Jewish and pro-Israel advocacy groups.
Muzin received money through a company named Biniatta as payment for services for the opposition party of Albania, followed by Qatar.
