    The N.R.A. spent $30 million dollars to elect Trump, but now we're finding much of it was Russian money. F.B.I. counter-intelligence agents have arrested a 29-year-old Russian woman on charges she acted as a Kremlin agent while working over the past three years to build relationships in the upper ranks of the National Rifle Association.

    Several prominent Russians in President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle have been identified as having contact with National Rifle Association officials during the 2016 U.S. election campaign, according to photographs and an NRA source,” Peter Stone and Greg Gordon of McClatchy write. “The contacts have emerged amid a deepening Justice Department investigation into whether Russian bankers and lifetime NRA member Alexander Torshin illegally channeled money through the gun rights group to add financial firepower to Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential bid.”

    It seems the NRA is doing a bit more than just promoting gun rights in America

    This just in: The Trump administration will no longer force the National Rifle Association to identify their contributors to federal tax officials.

    Connected to the indictment is U.S. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, who met repeatedly with the arrested (alleged) Russian spy, Butina.

    Rohrabacher? Where do we know that guy from? Oh yeah, from this gem:

    KEVIN McCARTHY: there's two people, I think, Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump. Swear to God.
    PAUL RYAN: this is an off the record... NO LEAKS! Alright? This is how we know we're a real family here.
