Democrats will and have resorted to many things, some illegal, to undermine the election and presidency of Donald Trump. A wealthy Hillary Clinton supporter paid women thousands of dollars to make sexual allegations against Donald Trump. Hillary’s campaign and the DNC spent millions for the fake Trump dossier, which is still the foundation for the Mueller investigation.
Then some made accusations that Russia paid the NRA or funneled election money through the NRA to help with the election of Donald Trump. To date, there is no evidence to support the allegation of Russian involvement with the NRA, indicating that the allegations may have been just another wild goose chase designed to smear the NRA.
(Hot Air) – Just how far did Russia penetrate the American political system in 2016? Counterintelligence officials at the FBI suspect that a Russian banker might have used the National Rifle Association to fund efforts to get Donald Trump elected president, McClatchy reports this morning. The FBI has been probing the money trail of Alexander Torshin, already wanted by Spain for money laundering, and his activities with the NRA’s super-PAC:
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. …
This revelation of no evidence of Russian and NRA collusion further weakens the allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 elections. With the lack of evidence to support any of the allegations, Democrats are getting desperate to find anything they can use to smear, discredit and dethrone President Donald Trump.
