Senate Intel Committee: We Have Evidence Showing The ‘Kremlin Used’ NRA To Help Trump In 2016




The Senate Judiciary Committee said Wednesday that they are in possession of “a number of documents” that show the Russian government used the National Rifle Association (NRA) to help Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.

“The Committee has obtained a number of documents that suggest the Kremlin used the National Rifle Association as a means of accessing and assisting Mr. Trump and his campaign,” said a report on the committee’s preliminary findings on Russia and the presidential campaign.

The report suggests that the NRA may have been used to “secretly fund Mr. Trump’s campaign.”




The Daily Beast reports:

While the report didn’t discuss the documents, it said two Russian nationals—Alexander Torshin and Maria Butina—were “involved in this effort.”

Torshin, a member of Russia’s central bank, hosted an NRA delegation in Moscow in 2013. Butina, founder of a pro-gun group in Russia, boasted at a Washington, D.C. party following the election that she was “part of the Trump campaign’s communications with Russia,” The Daily Beast reported last year.h
