Russians used guns, vets and Christian conservatives to connect with Trump campaign

According to an email obtained by the Mueller investigation and leaked to the NY TImes.

The communication is from an NRA operative to a Trump campaign official, asking that person and Jeff Sessions to help him get a meeting set up between Putin and candidate Trump. He said the NRA could get it done due to their gun connections with Russia. This was early on in the campaign.

Great article. And to the person who is leaking this stuff, you're awesome.

Whaaaa??? Trump should just resign now. If the Senate flips in 11 months, he's toast.

Trump sending out panic tweets.

A conclusion one can draw is that the NRA is a covert operation run by the Kremlin. It seems plausible.

Especially when they make radical propaganda videos like this: YouTube

Naw they're as American as Paula Deen's Deep Fried Cheesecake but they definitely found an ideological soul mate in Putin.

You can't own an assault rifle, most handguns, or clips that hold more than 10 rounds in Russia. After attending safety classes, passing a test and a background check, citizens can get a license good for 5 years. After 5 years of owning a smooth bore shotgun, you can apply to upgrade to a rifle. No open or concealed carry. Not exactly heaven for current NRA members. It could be the NRA originally snuggled up to Russian operatives to keep a source of cheap AK-47s flowing.

It's just despicable that these so called self-proclaimed 'patriots' would cozy up with the Russians, and then have the audacity call liberals communists.

The relationship between Russia and the NRA is complex and started about 7 years ago. The NRA has not tried to influence Russian gun control laws. It's different than that.

Good rundown of it here, if you're interested:
