Russian National with Ties to NRA Charged

Russian National Charged in Conspiracy to Act as an Agent of the Russian Federation Within the United States

Quote:
A criminal complaint was unsealed today in the District of Columbia charging a Russian national with conspiracy to act as an agent of the Russian Federation within the United States without prior notification to the Attorney General.

The announcement was made by Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Jessie K. Liu, and Nancy McNamara, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office.

Maria Butina, 29, a Russian citizen residing in Washington D.C., was arrested on July 15, 2018, in Washington, D.C., and made her initial appearance this afternoon before Magistrate Judge Deborah A. Robinson in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. She was ordered held pending a hearing set for July 18, 2018.

According to the affidavit in support of the complaint, from as early as 2015 and continuing through at least February 2017, Butina worked at the direction of a high-level official in the Russian government who was previously a member of the legislature of the Russian Federation and later became a top official at the Russian Central Bank. This Russian official was sanctioned by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control in April 2018.

The court filings detail the Russian official’s and Butina’s efforts for Butina to act as an agent of Russia inside the United States by developing relationships with U.S. persons and infiltrating organizations having influence in American politics, for the purpose of advancing the interests of the Russian Federation. The filings also describe certain actions taken by Butina to further this effort during multiple visits from Russia and, later, when she entered and resided in the United States on a student visa. The filings allege that she undertook her activities without officially disclosing the fact that she was acting as an agent of Russian government, as required by law.

The charges in criminal complaints are merely allegations and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The maximum penalty for conspiracy is five years. The maximum statutory sentence is prescribed by Congress and is provided here for informational purposes. If convicted of any offense, a defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court based on the advisory U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

The investigation into this matter was conducted by the FBI’s Washington Field Office. The case is being prosecuted by the National Security Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the National Security Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.

Who was Butina, a Russian spy, infiltrating? Why the NRA of course, whom has been accused of accepting Russian money:

Quote:
When Torshin and Butina attended the NRA’s 2014 annual convention, their profiles as scrappy Russians pushing for gun rights were rising. Butina attended an NRA women’s luncheon as a guest of one of the organization’s past presidents.

Interviewed by the conservative website Townhall, Butina called the NRA “one of the most world famous and most important organizations” and said that “we would like to be friends with NRA.”

Butina posted social-media photos showing how she and Torshin gained access to NRA officials and the U.S. politicians attending events. That April, Butina toured the NRA’s Virginia headquarters, and she and Torshin met Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), then a leading White House contender, at the NRA annual convention. Torshin told Bloomberg last year that he had a friendly exchange with Trump at the 2015 convention and sat with his son Donald Jr. at an NRA dinner the following year.

In June 2015, as Trump announced his candidacy, Butina wrote a column in the National Interest, a conservative U.S. magazine, suggesting that a Republican in the White House might improve U.S.-Russia relations.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.c7a7fb4e1849


Seems a lot of conservative associations and "news" publications easily got duped by a Russian spy.

How sad!

The Nuclear Regulatory Committee including Obama approved. Did any of the uranium ship to Russia? No. Why the outrage as if this is some gotcha. It proved to be a nothing burger, Trump and his followers continue to parrot lies and for what purpose?

You can make it 108 font. I don't think it adds any more relevance since you can't seem to make a case for why the sale of the company matters since none of the uranium ended up in Russia. That was the outrage correct?

#1, The intent is enough.

#2, If you don't see how the party that's so up in arm is the same party that approved the sale (even if none of it made it there [IF!!!]), then there's no helping you.

108 font?

Intent for what? Are you claiming it ended up in Russia? That isn't accurate. The font was in reference to you enlarging in bold print previously to make the same point just in larger font.

I understand that IF there was a secret deal to aide Russia in some nefarious way by either the Clintons or the Obama administration you would have a point. I am asking you to prove that actually happened. Sure Clinton cash and Breitbart machine tried, but they were handily rebuked even by Fox News. So other than that failed attempt, what has been uncovered of concern?

All I'm saying is that your boy Obama, who is still one of the leading voices in the Dem party, who now claims Russia is "da debil", approved (APPROVED!!) of selling "da debil" Uranium.

Wait, you know that, you're just trying to dance around that clearly obvious point.

Accused Russian agent Maria Butina had wider high-level contacts in Washington than previously known, taking part in 2015 meetings between a visiting Russian official and two senior officials at the U.S. Federal Reserve and Treasury Department.

The meetings, revealed by several people familiar with the sessions and a report from a Washington think tank that arranged them, involved Stanley Fischer, Fed vice chairman at the time, and Nathan Sheets, then Treasury undersecretary for international affairs.

Butina travelled to the United States in April 2015 with Alexander Torshin, then the Russian Central Bank deputy governor, and they took part in separate meetings with Fischer and Sheets to discuss U.S.-Russian economic relations during Democratic former President Barack Obama’s administration...
Quote:
...The meetings with Fischer and Sheets were arranged by the Center for the National Interest, a Washington foreign policy think tank that often advocates pro-Russia views.

The meetings were documented in a Center for the National Interest report seen by Reuters that outlined its Russia-related activities from 2013 to 2015. The report described the meetings as helping bring together “leading figures from the financial institutions of the United States and Russia.” ...

Crazy how the Obama/HRC/Kerry Admin has all these Russian connections -

- which have been used to target Trump as a Russian puppet/traitor.


> Soros was once quoted as saying, "One other trick is to blame your opponet for the very thing in which you are guilty."

- I wonder where he got that idea:
