Maria Butina guilty plea sends shockwaves across the GOP and NRA

Hat tip Palmer Report

The NRA need to be dismantled and those involved need to go to prison for conspiring with a hostile foreign power against the United States. We know if it were Black people committing treason against the United States, they’d be executed. So we wait to see how they handle white traitors.

Russian spy Maria Butina pleaded guilty today, entering into a cooperation agreement in exchange for a minimal sentence. This means she’s already given up everyone during her proffer session, though prosecutors won’t immediately reveal everyone she’s taken down with her, as they work to build criminal cases against them. That said, the court filing alone is enough to send shockwaves across the Donald Trump campaign, the Kremlin, the NRA, and the Republican Party.

Prosecutors used the Maria Butina hearing to accuse her boyfriend, Republican political operative Paul Erickson, of not only having abetted her espionage, but also of having served as a conduit between the Kremlin and the GOP. By rule, federal prosecutors can’t make these kinds of accusations against a third party in a court filing unless they’re sitting on what would generally be considered proof of that person’s guilt.

In other words, the Feds have Erickson nailed to the wall. Whether he realizes it yet or not, he’ll have little choice but to cut a plea deal and sell out the various Republican Party officials and politicians who were in on his plot. That’s going to take down a lot of people in the GOP. While Butina appeared to have specific male targets in the Republican Party, Erickson was a full-on party operative, meaning he likely looped in far more GOP figures.

This is before getting to Maria Butina’s close interactions with the NRA, which should expose the money trail from the Kremlin through the NRA to the Republican Party – so it’s time for NRA officials to panic. And then of course there is Butina’s Russian handler, Kremlin-controlled banker Alexander Torshin, who resigned from his bank and disappeared just as Butina was cutting her deal. Is he even still alive?

    Wasn’t Head Coon David Clarke in that pic with Butina?
    Maybe that’s why we haven’t heard much from him lately.

    ROTFLMAO bye bye NRA we know you too well – you left your roots some 30-40 year ago to become a tool of rightwing nuts who eventually became proto-fascists. Pay back will bury you, none too soon for selling out you members and nation.
