Did Russia Go to NRA to Help Trump?

Did Russia give money to the Trump campaign through the NRA? If that happened, that is a crime.

The conservative Weekly Standardard reports:

Fact Check: Is the 'FBI Investigating Whether Russian Went to NRA to Help Trump'?

According to these sources the FBI is investigating if the deputy governor of Russia’s central bank, Alexander Torshin, illegally gave money to the National Rifle Association to assist the organization in electing Donald Trump. The amount of evidence the FBI has in this matter is unknown. 

 McClatchy also notes that Congress has had an eye on Torshin as well: The House and Senate Intelligence Committees and Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee also have taken an interest in Torshin as part of their parallel inquiries into Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections. Torshin has attended several NRA conferences dating back to at least 2014, the New York Times reports, and has built a relationship with the NRA, hosting two dinners for NRA top-ranking delegates when they visited Russia in 2015 according to McClatchy DC. 

 The article also notes the Times’ report that Torshin spoke with Donald Trump Jr. at an NRA convention and attempted to establish contact between Putin and then-candidate Trump.

Keeps getting ever more interesting. Someday there will be movies produced about this period. Full of intrigue no doubt.

Congratulations to the Stoneman Douglas hockey team!!

They were in last seed and came back to win the Florida State championship after the shootings just a few days ago. They go to the nationals in Plymouth Minnesota. I'll be rooting for them to win the national title.

Cadet Bone Spure who didn't have the courage to fight in Vietnam like John Kerry and Robert Mueller, two sons of wealthy fathers did, bragged about how he, unarmed, would confront a shooter with an AR-15.

Trump, Who Cited Bone Spurs To Avoid Military Service, Claims He Would Have Fought Off Parkland Shooter Without A Weapon.

This same coward pissed his tightie whities during the campaign when some jerk ran toward the podium and Cadet Bone Spurs had to have the Secret Service guys surround him.

We've all met this type of lily-livered blowhard braggart in our lives, and we all know what frauds they truly are.

There is absolutely nothing in trump's past to back up his cowardly brag.
