    Kremlin Used NRA to Help Trump in 2016

    Well, isn't this fascinatin'?

    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.

    I thought this was previously debunked (in March)? Is there new information which has arisen since then?

    Wondering if we will find out this goes beyond Trump? NRA donates to dozens of House and Senate members. Where did that money come from since in the US a president is essentially toothless without a legislature on their side.

    And we STILL don't know when Donald Trump first met Vladimir Putin! I would think that would be pretty important to figure out!

    WHEN Did Donald Trump First Meet Vladimir Putin?

    I hope law enforcement officials can force them to cooperate.

    You're truly not concerned about Russian meddling in our elections, are you?

    I bet your tune would change DRAMATICALLY if the 2020 election were between, say, Bernie Sanders and anti-Russia hawk Marco Rubio, and the Russians pulled out all the stops to help get Bernie elected.

    Boy oh boy, then SUDDENLY it would become an URGENT NATIONAL SECURITY NIGHTMARE!!!!!!
