The absolute last thing gun rights supporters need: the NRA dragged into the whole Russia scandal.

I’m not worried

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/07/oops_alleged_russian_spy_maria_butina_met_with_obama_officials_in_2015.html

Alleged Russian agent Maria Butina met with officials from the Treasury Department and Federal Reserve in 2015, according to a new report. ...

Reuters reported that Butina and Alexander Torshin, the former Russian Central Bank deputy governor, met with Stanley Fischer, then-vice chair of the Fed, and Nathan Sheets, then-Treasury undersecretary for international affairs, in separate meetings in 2015.

The purpose of the meetings was to discuss U.S. economic sanctions placed on Russia during the Obama administration. The U.S. placed sanctions on Russia multiple times during the Obama years over Russia's involvement in Ukraine, its annexation of Crimea, and the Russian government's interference in the 2016 presidential election.

According to Reuters, the meetings "reveal a wider circle of high-powered connections that Butina sought to cultivate with American political leaders and special interest groups."

What exactly were they using the NRA for? The whole purpose of the Russian intervention was to cause chaos and make people mistrust the government. I still don't understand what the accusation is.

What the hell is it going to take to clean up the FBI and DOJ?

Prosecutors reverse claim that accused Russian agent traded sex for political access

Prosecutors say they were "mistaken" about the meaning of text messages sent by Maria Butina, a Russian woman accused of acting as an unregistered agent of the Russian government and a Republican operative, that purported to show Butina offering sex in exchange for political access.

So,the fact that they were wrong, gets how much play? How much sloppiness and overtly false information is considered tolerable by the American people?
