    FBI investigating whether Russian money went to NRA to help Trump

    FBI investigating whether Russian money went to NRA to help Trump

    WASHINGTON


    "The FBI is investigating whether a top Russian banker with ties to the Kremlin illegally funneled money to the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump win the presidency, two sources familiar with the matter have told McClatchy.

    FBI counterintelligence investigators have focused on the activities of Alexander Torshin, the deputy governor of Russia’s central bank who is known for his close relationships with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and the NRA, the sources said.

    It is illegal to use foreign money to influence federal elections."


    My question is, why would the NRA do this? If they did...

    Nope..

    Federal investigators are targeting Alexander Torshin, a deputy head at Russia’s central bank, who hosted a pair of dinners for a high profile NRA delegation in Moscow in 2015, McClatchy reported on Thursday.

    Torshin then reportedly met with Donald Trump Jr. at the NRA’s 2016 convention.

    The gun lobbying group reported spending a record $55 million on the 2016 elections, $30 million of which went to supporting Trump’s bid.

    Yes.
    All of the sources spoke on condition of anonymity because Mueller’s investigation is confidential and mostly involves classified information.

    Did you read my link? It looks like the facts are coming out Harley. Facts have come out all along how Russia was and is still hacking us.
    Mueller is sniffing out the rats.. This is something else and worse than we expected.
