The NRA Has Just Been Exposed

The National Rifle Association is now under scrutiny for lying about its ties to Russia. According to new reports the gun group is under investigation for allegedly lying about the details to its tiest to Russian spy Maria Butina, who pleaded guilty last year to acting as a Russian agent and participating in a conspiracy against the United States.

The main focus for Congressional investigators is the 2015 Moscow trip “because it appears to have been a key development in an influence campaign orchestrated by Butina and her handler, Russian official Alexander Torshin, to try to cultivate ties with American conservatives and Republicans—eventually including Donald Trump—and nudge them toward pro-Russia policies,” according to reports.

NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre released a statement about the meeting, saying that he had opposed the trip and urged the gun group to stay away from it.

But Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, who is investigating the NRA as the top Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, believes that LaPierre’s claims are bogus.

Wyden and congressional investigators are planning a detailed report on the trip. According to reports, investigators are zeroing in on David Keene, a former NRA president who was the trip’s primary organizer on the NRA side, according to people familiar with the matter.
