President Trump has been under attack in recent months as Special Counsel Robert Mueller attempts to manufacture some connection between the populist President and Vladimir Putin.
During the 2016 election, the idea that Donald Trump was a KGB operative or Kremlin double agent was first introduced by the democrats in an attempt to delegitimize the business mogul’s entire campaign. While this obviously failed, that hasn’t stopped the left from continuing to pursue some sort of punishment for the imaginary crimes they’ve invented for the President.
The latest twist in this sordid tale now involves the NRA, and the FBI’s belief that the gun rights organization has some Russian connections worth investigating.
“The FBI is currently investigating whether the NRA accepted illegal money from a Kremlin-connected Russian banker in order to elect Donald Trump to the presidency.
“The focus of the probe is on Alexander Torshin, who is deputy governor of Russia’s central bank and has close connections to both the NRA and President Vladimir Putin, according to McClatchy. If Torshin funneled money to the NRA to help elect Trump, that could constitute a crime — because it is illegal for Americans to use foreign money in their elections.
“It is unclear how far the FBI has gotten into its investigation or what it has uncovered. It is also unclear whether they have proof of either Torshin sending money to the NRA or the NRA being aware of the illegality of any such funds winding up in its coffers.
“The NRA spent three times as much money to elect Trump in the 2016 election, $30 million, than it did to try to elect Mitt Romney in the 2012 election. Most of the money spent by the NRA in 2016 was from an arm of the organization that was not legally required to disclose its donors.”
Of course, the accusations are absurd on their face, but we’ve come to expect this from the left.
For the entirety of Trump’s presidency, the liberals have been attacking anything related to the conservative agenda, and it comes as no surprise that they’ve snared the NRA in their latest assault.
