Step by step...
I have another interesting twist regarding the Trump/Russia investigations for you this morning.
After reading the Miami Herald yesterday, I was surprised to see another effort from Russia that supported Trump, along with all the rest we're already aware of.
I have to admit I was stunned to read about the coordination between the supposedly patriotic NRA, Russia, and the Trump campaign.
The NRA was originally formed by two union veterans who were dismayed at how bad a shot most of the Yankees were during the Civil War.
Within one year of forming the organization, the NRA built a rifle range. The goal was to make all Americans better shots. There was no political aspect to the organization back then.
After the passage of the Gun Control Act of 1968, the NRA became politically active. The group only represents less than a fifth of all American gun owners, yet it remains one of the most powerful gun rights lobbies in the United States.
FBI counterintelligence investigators have focused on the activities of Alexander Torshin, the deputy governor of Russia’s central bank who is known for his close relationships with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and the NRA.
The news comes as Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s sweeping investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, including whether the Kremlin colluded with Trump’s campaign, has been heating up.
