Senate Finds NRA Provided Russians Access To Republicans For Money

The congressional probe into the National Rifle Association’s relationship with Russia shows a U.S. tax-exempt organization working as a conduit to provide Russian officials access to Republicans with the quid pro quo of “lucrative personal business opportunities.”

These are the results of the Senate investigation that was first reported at PoliticusUSA in February 2019.
“The NRA and Russia: How a Tax-Exempt Organization Became a Foreign Asset,” report explains A LOT.

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden (D-ORE) released the results of his 18-month investigation into the NRA’s relationship with Russia, which reveals that the NRA has may have violated numerous tax laws and most importantly, given the current situation with Republicans defending Donald Trump from proof that he worked with the Russians to cheat in the 2016 election and has tried to extort Ukraine to help him cheat in 2020, accuses the NRA of promising access to U.S. officials in exchange for Russian business.
