KT's DEC 2016 email: "Sanctions could make it harder for Trump to ease tensions w/ Russia, which has just thrown the election to him."
DEC 2016: Hours after Pres Obama announced sanctions, KT McFarland emailed transition team that FLYNN would be speaking w with Russian Ambassador Kislyak: “Key will be Russia’s response,” she wrote to Trump Transition official, Tom Bossert.
NEW: As part of her plea deal, Maria Butina, whose co conspirator Paul Erickson offered Trump's Campaign a ‘Kremlin Connection’ using NRA ties, will cooperate with US law enforcement “in any and all to matters the Government deems relevant.”
