Butina was recently moved from federal facility in D.C. to jail in Alexandria where Paul Manafort is currently being held.
Life comes at you fast!
Butina also worked with the @OUTDChannel to develop a television show highlighting Putin’s “love of the outdoors” that would feature Putin himself. The Outdoor Channel and the @NRA call themselves “strategic partners”:
Butina (set up a meeting with high ranking @NRA officials & Alexander Torshin "Godfather” of the Taganskaya mafia in Moscow) is ready to rat on her Bae Paul Erickson illegal activities( He is currently under a fraud investigation).
Elena Khusyaynova, a Russian woman funded by Yevgeny Prigozhin AKA "Putin's chef” has been charged with attempting to meddle in the 2018 midterm elections. She also worked for the same Russian troll farm that was indicted in February by Mueller.
Maria Butina, (she & her handler Torshin had dinner with @DonaldJTrumpJr on May 19 at a NRA convention in Kentucky -weeks before the June 9 meeting)has agreed to plead guilty to acting as illegal foreign agent.
Maria Butina presents Col. Lysyuk with Honorary Membership in Right to Bear Arms in 2012.
In September 2012, Butina posted an entire album on Vk.com (Russia’s faux Facebook) containing photos of herself & Torshin inspecting the Vityaz regiment on their private training grounds outside Moscow.
Hey #MAGAts Maria Butina and an unnamed “U.S. Person 1,” her boy toy Paul Erickson, “agreed & conspired, with a Russian government official & at least 1 other person, for her to act in U.S. under direction of Russia without prior notification to the A.G..” #MorningJoe
“She risks 15 years in jail. For what? I asked all the heads of our intelligence services what is going on. Nobody knows anything about her.”-Putin on Maria Butina
Paul Erickson Butina's boyfriend may be charged under Section 951 of the U.S. code Essentially that an American was acting to advance the interests of a foreign power, contrary to the interests of the United States of America.
Erickson wrote in December 2016 that he helped to set up a “very private line of communication” between Russia and the Trump campaign. And he used the @NRA to do it. @davidhogg111 @AMarch4OurLives @Emma4Change @shannonrwatts
“In April 2015, Butina traveled to the U.S. to attend a gun rights organization convention where she was introduced to influential members of Political Party #1."
In Nov. 2016, Butina was wondering whether to establish a relationship with the President-elect's advisors. The Russian official advising her told her to "Go for it."
Judge: "Is what the government read into the record correct?” Butina: "Yes.”
Butina pleads guilty and a status conference is set for Feb. 12th.
Dear #MAGAts: Maria Butina pleaded guilty to conspiring with a Russian gov't official Alexander Torshin to infiltrate the NRA and Republican politicians. She is the first Russian national convicted of trying to influence U.S. policy during the 2016 presidential election.12/13/18
Paul Erickson had sent an email to @jeffsessions , then a Trump campaign booster, offering to use his @NRA connections to establish a back channel between the Trumps & the Russian government....IS THIS YOUR AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM REPUBLICANS? Your patriotism is treason!
Butina has claimed under oath she had a "signed cooperation agreement" with the @NRA .
Spanish police have turned over to the FBI wiretaps of conversations involving Alexander Torshin, who met with @DonaldJTrumpJr , during the 2016 US presidential election. He & Maria Butina used the @NRA convention in 2016 to set up a backdoor meeting between Trump & Putin.
José Grinda a Spanish prosecutor who spearheads investigations into organized crime, was asked if he was concerned about Torshin's interactions with Trump Jr. Grinda replied: "Mr. Trump's son should be concerned."
Through his connections to the @NRA Torshin was selected to be an election monitor during the 2012 US presidential election. And when the NRA sent a delegation to Moscow in the winter of 2015, it was Torshin who received them on behalf of The Right to Bear Arms.
National Security Adviser John Bolton(who participated in promo video for russian spy #MariaButina right to bear arms organization in 2013) abolished the role of cybersecurity coordinator at the White House.
