NRA Took Donations From Nearly Two Dozen People Linked To Russia

NRA Took Donations From Nearly Two Dozen People Linked To Russia

The National Rifle Association, attempting to rebuff a senior Democratic senator's questions about whether it received illicit funding from a Kremlin figure to help Donald Trump's presidential campaign, said this week that it received a total of $2,513 in donations and membership dues from 23 people with Russian ties since 2015 and ensured none of the money went for political purposes.

The gun rights advocacy group revealed in a letter to Sen. In January, McClatchy DC first reported that Federal Bureau of Investigation officials were investigating whether Torshin, who is also a deputy head of Russia's central bank, had illegally funneled money to the NRA in an effort to help Trump.

Wyden received this letter after months of questioning the NRA's possible Russian Federation ties.

Now, however: "Based on Mr. Torshin's listing as a specially designated national as of April 6, we are currently reviewing our responsibilities with respect to him", Frazer wrote. "After three letters, the NRA continuously, and notably averted detailing what measures it takes to vet donations, along with from shell companies, a recognized means for Russians to funnel money into the US".

Treasury Department regulations "generally prohibit" USA persons from dealing with sanctioned individuals. "As ranking member of the Finance Committee, he is considering additional oversight actions in light of this response".

Salah howver is not happy with the development, as he took to his Twitter account to say, " Wooooooow really? ". Of course [you have to take his word for it], but on the camera we will see if it's true or not.

One high-profile Russian NRA supporter, state bank official Alexander Torshin, has cultivated a years-long relationship with the organization - but he was placed under sanction by the United States with other Russians last week.

The admission came after Senator Ron Wyden, a Democrat from OR, prodded the NRA as part of an investigation into what political organizations may have been used by Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election in favor of Donald Trump. "He has paid membership dues, but has not made any contributions", NRA general counsel John Frazer wrote to Wyden. In the latest letter, the group said it was "reviewing our responsibilities with respect to" Torshin after he was added to a list of Russians under US sanction last week.

This revelation exposed a contradictory statement from last month when an outside counsel for the organization told ABC News that the group received only one donation of less than $1,000 from a Russian individual between 2012 and 2018.

Politico reported recently that the FEC had begun examining whether Russian Federation money had flowed to the NRA after an election watchdog group filed a complaint with the agency.

The NRA did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Wyden's referral.
