We have to get to the bottom of the connections between the NRA, Russia, and Republican campaigns including Trump’s in 2016.
At the heel of the hunt, I think the key to general Republican complicity in this scandal is going to be the fact that a lot of them got laundered Russian money in 2016, a lot of which got washed by the NRA.
