According to the affidavit in support of the complaint, from as early as 2015 and continuing through at least February 2017, Butina worked at the direction of a high-level official in the Russian government who was previously a member of the legislature of the Russian Federation and later became a top official at the Russian Central Bank. This Russian official was sanctioned by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control in April 2018.
https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/russian-national-charged-conspiracy-act-agent-russian-federation-within-united-statesThe court filings detail the Russian official’s and Butina’s efforts for Butina to act as an agent of Russia inside the United States by developing relationships with U.S. persons and infiltrating organizations having influence in American politics, for the purpose of advancing the interests of the Russian Federation. The filings also describe certain actions taken by Butina to further this effort during multiple visits from Russia and, later, when she entered and resided in the United States on a student visa. The filings allege that she undertook her activities without officially disclosing the fact that she was acting as an agent of Russian government, as required by law.

undoubtedly, Trump was briefed on this. There's no way the Justice Department would have done this without telling him, knowing he was headed for a summit with Putin. Which means, he stood there on stage and let Putin lie right to his face. He knew this. Yet, he had the audacity to cast doubt on our Justice Department? All just because he's more concerned about his own personal image than the national security interest of America. He knew. That's why he had no problem recruiting Putin in his efforts to undermine the US. All right there live for the whole world to see.
She's the same one who took Trump to the whore house in Vegas in 2013? The one where they had girls into umm...Watersports.Interesting..
