Evidence Shows Lindsey Graham Received Illegal Campaign Contributions From Russia – Political State
An investigation has been ongoing into Republican Senate Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham’s connections to Russia by a number of transparency groups, including money he has used in his political campaigns that would amount to possible felony campaign finance violations.
The Democratic Coalition, one such group led by activist Scott Dworkin, has been elaborating on analysis done in the Dallas Morning News that detailed $800,000 that Graham’s political action committee took from Len Blavatnik, a dual citizen of the US and UK who emigrated from the USSR in the 1970s with his family and returned to Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The report out from the Dem Coalition cites Blavatnik at the outset, and the millions he made from the sale of a private Russian oil company to the state-owned Rosneft. In fact, the Dworkin Report cites many of the key players whose names keep surfacing as the Mueller and Congressional probes continue: Blavatnik, Viktor Vekselberg, Oleg Deripaska, and the many businesses and shell companies those people have maintained — and contributed to GOP candidates from.
