Documents Appear to Show That The NRA & Donald Trump Violated Campaign Coordination Law

Documents unearthed by Mother Jones point to illegal campaign coordination between President Donald Trump and the National Rifle Association. The documents come from the 2016 election and show that Trump and the NRA used the same consultants during ad blitzes leading up to the election.

According to Mother Jones, the NRA and Trump’s campaign both purchased ad blitzes targeting the same demographic in Norfolk, Virginia the week before the election. While it appears at first that they used different media strategy firms, that might not actually be the case.

The NRA used a firm called Red Eagle Media, while the Trump campaign used the American Media & Advocacy Group. Both are closely connected to conservative media-consulting firm National Media Research, Planning and Placement.

In fact, The Trace points out that both groups’ ad buys were authorized by the same person. That person was National Media’s chief financial officer, Jon Ferrell.

Larry Noble, a former general counsel for the FEC, pointed out to Mother Jones that “this is very strong evidence, if not proof, of illegal coordination.” Noble added, “This is the heat of the general election, and the same person is acting as an agent for the NRA and the Trump campaign.”

It appears this ad blitz wasn’t the only time the two groups appear to coordinate their messages. National Media, through Red Eagle and AMAG, completed ad buys for both groups that appeared to coordinate and/or enhance each other.

The potential coordination would violate election laws. While the NRA could spend as much money as it wanted on behalf of Trump in 2016, an independent group and a campaign are not allowed to share election-related information. If they coordinate, then the group’s expenditures don’t qualify as independent.

RE: The NRA really badly wants the Butina story to go away.
Maria Butina's lawyers just filed paperwork to change her plea from not guilty to guilty. Remains to be seen if she's cooperating or not, but it's a major win for prosecutors to bag the NRA's Russian princess.

A major development in the federal investigation into the National Rifle Association’s 2016 political activities just unfolded when an accused Russian spy just filed a motion in federal court to hold a hearing this week so she can change her plea to guilty of charges that she infiltrated the NRA to influence America’s 2016 presidential election.

Sergey Lysyuk, Vityaz Commander and Hero of the Russian Federation as his other “Special Assistant” Maria Butina, an accused Russian spy who infiltrated the NRA. September 12, 2012. Source: Maria Butina’s VK account

Quote:It was the host of Dworkin Report who found the consequential photo which Maria Butina posted to her VK social media account linking she and Alexander Torshin to a soldier he identified as Col. Sergey Lysyuk.

Podcaster Scott Dworkin continued to review literally all of the rest of Butina and Torshin’s social media posts for this story, which will be featured throughout this series. The first three parts of The Torshin Files will be released today, and required an international team of experts to comment along with selfless assistance from other journalists on three continents to run down every lead, including some stories excluded as not relevant to this investigation.

RE: The NRA really badly wants the Butina story to go away.
Maria Butina’s boyfriend claimed he set up Trump-Russia NRA “conduit” as campaign funds flowed
Republican operative Paul Erickson claimed in an email he’d set up a private Russia-GOP channel through the NRA

Quote:According to prosecutors, Erickson “worked with Butina to arrange introductions to U.S. persons having influence in American politics,” including the NRA and the organizers of the National Prayer Breakfast.

In 2015, Butina organized a trip for former NRA presidents and officials to Moscow, where she arranged a meeting for them with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

“We should let them express their gratitude now, we will put pressure on them quietly later,” she wrote to Torshin after the meeting.

Around the same time, Erickson appears to have known about Butina’s work and was helping her establish connections.

“Unrelated to specific presidential campaigns,” Erickson wrote in October 2016, in an email to an acquaintance now in possession of the FBI, “I’ve been involved in securing a VERY private line of communication between the Kremlin and key [unnamed political party] leaders through, of all conduits, the [unnamed gun-rights organization].”

FBI investigators raided Erickson's South Dakota home and found a note in which he mused, “How to respond to FSB offer of employment?” The FSB is Russia’s intelligence agency and the successor to the infamous KGB.

Butina continued to attend “friendship dinners” with prominent conservatives and later arranged for a group of Russians to attend the National Prayer Breakfast in February of 2017.

In an email to Erickson, Butina wrote that the Russians were coming to the breakfast “to establish a back channel of communication,” The Daily Beast reported.

Erickson sent the list of Russian attendees to another person and wrote, “Reaction to the delegation’s presence in America will be conveyed DIRECTLY” to Russian President Vladimir Putin and Lavrov.

As these efforts were ongoing, the NRA was breaking spending records with sums of cash never before seen from the group.

The NRA, relying on an arm of the group that is not required to disclose its donors, spent more than $30 million to elect President Donald Trump, nearly triple the $12.5 million they spent to help Republican nominee Mitt Romney in 2012. They spent $54 million in total to elect Republicans in 2016.

Since the 2016 election, the NRA has cut its spending drastically. During the 2018 midterm cycle, McClatchy reported that the NRA had spent just $1.6 million to help Republicans, about 10 percent of the $16 million the group had spent backing GOP candidates in the 2014 midterms.

But the NRA didn’t just spend a lot of money to help Trump win. Watchdog groups filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission accusing the NRA and the Trump campaign of illegally coordinating ads to influence the 2016 election. According to The Trace, both the NRA and Trump campaign illegally coordinated to the point where their ad buys were authorized by the same person at the National Media Research firm.

Denied A Visa Twice, Butina Finally Received One After The NRA Vouched For Her

Quote:Butina did not say in her 2014 post whether NRA officials took any actions to help her overcome the U.S. government’s objections to her visa requests. The NRA did not respond to requests for comment about its relationship with Butina. In the past, it has denied wrongdoing — unintentional or otherwise — in connection with its dealings with Russian entities.

Keene did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment. Erickson could not be reached for comment. His voicemail was full, and he did not respond to a text message seeking comment.

Butina's lawyer, Robert Driscoll, said he could not discuss any details of her case, including her efforts to get a visa and her dealings with NRA officials.

CNN first reported that Butina was twice denied visas.

One person close to the investigation said it was likely that Butina’s formal role in NRA events helped her secure a visa to come to the U.S. for the 2014 conference. “I assume that by providing the destination as being an NRA conference, it helps to get a visa,” the person told POLITICO.

U.S. officials this week alleged that Butina, 29, worked from 2015 until at least February 2017 as a covert Kremlin agent under the direction of a top Russian government official and central banker. The description in court documents matched that of Alexander Torshin, a close associate of President Vladimir Putin.

As part of that effort, prosecutors say, the pair worked to infiltrate a gun rights group, which matches the description of the NRA, and other conservative American organizations in order to establish back-channel lines of communication with influential U.S. political leaders and “penetrate the U.S. national decision-making apparatus to advance the agenda of the Russian Federation,” according to an affidavit by an FBI agent in support of the case.

Well they are the National Rifle Association!
They should have at least a few trained killers as members.

She needs to take some wardrobe hints from Melania.

But other than that she seems pretty nice. From the stories other people think she is hot too.

No one to this point has stated anything bad she did.

If Russians support the US second amendment - that is something that should be praised.


All promoting this story did is get me to reup my NRA membership.

Remember - as an NRA member you get a $5 per hour discount at their headquarters range.
