Kremlin Used NRA to Help Trump in 2016, Senate Report Says

If it looks like collusion, swims like collusion, and quacks like collusion, it's probably collusion...

Quote:
The Senate Judiciary Committee said Wednesday that the Russian government apparently used the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.

Documents suggest the Kremlin used the NRA to offer the campaign a back channel to Moscow—including a potential meeting between Trump and Vladimir Putin—and might have secretly funded Trump’s campaign, the committee said. One of the Russians named in the report even bragged she was part of the Trump campaign’s communications with Russia, The Daily Beast reported last year.

The NRA spent a record $30 million on Trump and the FBI is reportedly investigating whether any of the money came from Russia. U.S. law prohibits foreign money to be spent on elections.

Two Russian nationals figure prominently in the alleged scheme: Alexander Torshin, deputy governor of the Kremlin’s central bank, and his then-deputy Maria Butina.

Torshin met Donald Trump Jr. at the NRA’s 2016 convention in Kentucky and hosted an NRA delegation in Moscow in 2015. Torshin was previously accused by Spanish investigators of laundering money for Russian mobsters, an allegation he denied. (Last month he was sanctioned by the U.S.)

The Daily Beast uses words like “apparently” and “suggest” and “might have”.  At long last, some hard evidence!

Udderly fascinating.

When Mitt Romney ran for office and said the Soviets were a threat you lefties laughed at him.  No you see a commie everywhere BUT in your own party.   Roll Eyes

''If it looks like collusion, swims like collusion, and quacks like collusion, it's probably collusion''...

Only to a MORON who's hell-bent on desiring to believe the leftist operatives from Obama's deep-state and the filthy corrupt liberal news networks that all helped to launch the PHONY Trump/Russian Collusion story!      Grin

Those USELESS enough to follow and believe ''USELESS'' Russian theory lie, .. had better jump off that dumb-ass train  Smiley , otherwise they'll miss those who very well may get indicted later for plotting to overthrow and interfere in a Presidential election, and also for trying to take down Trump's Presidency.

Better keep your eyes peeled, .. you young little lad, as those who broke laws and entertained Russians and were paid by Russians, were NOT from the Trump camp, .. you imbecile! Smiley

Mitt Romney also said about Trump:

Quote:
"Here's what I know: Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud.  His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He's playing members of the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat."
