It's becoming apparent that the Maria Butina prosecution was triggered by Glenn Simpson.
Method of operation: (1) plant stories in the press; (2) use stories to spur investigations.

Simpson would have been the source for anti-NRA, anti-GOP, Butina articles in 2016 and 2017. Both were sent to Bruce and Nellie Ohr.

@The_War_Economy has been on this.
This timeline doesn't smell right.

12/6/2016 - Simpson sends Ohr a Butina article
2/23/2017 - Simpson sends Ohr a Butina article
4/25/2018 - FBI raids Butina's apartment
7/15/2018 - Butina is arrested
Our suspicions have been confirmed by @JudicialWatch getting the Bruce Ohr 302s. The NRA/Russia article was provided to the FBI.

The leftist article from Simpson, passed by conduit Bruce Ohr, helped trigger the FBI's NRA/Butina inquisition.
@JudicialWatch The article was sent by Simpson to Nellie Ohr on 12/11/16. ht @The_War_Economy

The article was given to the FBI by Bruce Ohr on 12/12/16- w/ claims the NRA used Russian money to help Trump

Consider that the Butina prosecution could have been an effort to bolster Simpson/Fusion
