The Russkis Took Over the NRA!!!

Well, sure.

The story is actually funny, and a great example of the way Pure Bullshit is "news."

The FBI is investigating whether a top Russian banker with ties to the Kremlin illegally funneled money to the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump win the presidency, two sources familiar with the matter have told McClatchy.

OK, let's have the story!!

...The extent to which the FBI has evidence of money flowing from Torshin to the NRA, or of the NRA’s participation in the transfer of funds, could not be learned....

Oh.  So there is zero?  Some?  A lot?  Conclusive?  OK, prolly zero.  But let's keep playing!!

...NRA reported spending a record $55 million on the 2016 elections, including $30 million to support Trump – triple what the group devoted to backing Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential race....

Well, THAT'S an indictment just waiting for a ham sandwich, or something.  NRA saw Trump as a better spend than Mitt, the Wishy-Washy LOSER.  This is not hard--except for McClatchy ditzes. 

This gets better!!

...Two people with close connections to the powerful gun lobby said its total election spending actually approached or exceeded $70 million. The reporting gap could be explained by the fact that independent groups are not required to reveal how much they spend on Internet ads or field operations, including get-out-the-vote efforts....

Sadly, those two people are not named "Vlad" and "Ivan."  So McClatchy doesn't have a smoking gun.  Yet. 

But we do know this:  the AFL-CIO also does not report GOTV, internet, or "walking-around money."  And that is usually around $100 million/election.  Then there's the Steelworkers, the IAMAW, the Electricals, the AFSCME, and the NEA.....but who's counting??  Not McClatchy.

Then there's the tall-tale telling part, where we assemble a 150-story skyscraper from only 100 Lego parts!!

...Investigators for three congressional committees probing Russia’s 2016 operations also have shown interest in Torshin, a lifetime NRA member who has attended several of its annual conventions. At the group’s meeting in Kentucky in May 2016, Torshin spoke to Donald Trump Jr. during a gala event at the group’s national gathering in Kentucky in May 2016, when his father won an earlier-than-usual NRA presidential endorsement.....

What ARE we WAITING FOR??  JAIL THIS TRAITOR TRUMP!!!  JAIL TORSHIN, who is OBVIOUSLY a Putin plant.  Ham-sandwich-ize all the NRA OFFICERS!!!!  Prepare their rooms at LEAVENWORTH!!  Torshin SPOKE to Don, Jr!!  WE HAVE NO FURTHER NEED OF PROOF!!!!

My rifle has been speaking to me in a low, gutteral, voice.  Polyooska Polyii!!  Eta Russki Armii, Polyii!!  The rifle had an NRA sticker on the box it came in.   ARREST THE RIFLE!!

Ah, yes.  The free Press.  Nobody said anything about Truth, did they?
