Depth Of Russian Politician's Cultivation Of NRA Ties Revealed

A prominent Kremlin-linked Russian politician has methodically cultivated ties with leaders of the National Rifle Association, and documented efforts in real time over six years to leverage those connections and gain access deeper into American politics, NPR has learned.

 

Russian politician Alexander Torshin claimed his ties to the National Rifle Association provided him access to Donald Trump — and the opportunity to serve as a foreign election observer in the United States during the 2012 election.

 

 

 

It's wider and deeper then just the NRA, where did Republicans come across these Russian investments we've heard about in the news over the last year?

 

Russians have been cultivating Republicans for years, maybe decades, and Republicans didn't blow the whistle or sound the alarm, Republicans were on board lock stock and barrel.


How could that be?

"Likes 'em young" Ted Nugent and "wide stance in the men's room" Larry Craig assure everyone that the NRA is very very patriotic - and if you believe that, they have a bunch of self-cleaning Colt-Armalite AR15s for sale...
