Is it true that the NRA is aligning themselves with the Russian

So I'm hearing that the NRA is running like hell away from a story aligning themselves with Russia. Which in no way surprises me , they would sell out this country so the gun manufacturers kept the money flowing to the NRA as the Propaganda arm of big business GUNS. They are aligning themselves to their political leader. who I feel is nothing but a Agent of Russia . This is what has become of the right wing. They own this and they deserve what comes out of this . Which in my opinion will be soon, very soon.
Thanks from GluteusMaximus

Interesting from politico "

The National Rifle Association reported this week that it received more money from people with Russian ties than it has previously acknowledged, but announced that it was officially done cooperating with a congressional inquiry exploring whether illicit Kremlin-linked funding passed through the NRA and into Donald Trumpís 2016 presidential campaign, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) said on Wednesday."

From Mother Jones. "The night before President Donald Trump spoke at the 2016 National Rifle Association convention, his eldest son met with a Russian politician who had been pitched to the Trump campaign as an “emissary” of Vladimir Putin who could set up a back channel to the Kremlin. Since then, that Russian official, Alexander Torshin, a former deputy governor of the Russian central bank who is reported to be under investigation for possibly funneling money to the NRA, has bragged about his relationship with the NRA, and the gun group has reluctantly acknowledged that it has received money from Russian source"

FRom THe NPR "A prominent Kremlin-linked Russian politician has methodically cultivated ties with leaders of the National Rifle Association and documented efforts in real time over six years to leverage those connections and gain deeper access into American politics, NPR has learned.

Russian politician Alexander Torshin said his ties to the NRA provided him access to Donald Trump — and the opportunity to serve as a foreign election observer in the United States during the 2012 election.

Torshin is a prolific Twitter user, logging nearly 150,000 tweets, mostly in Russian, since his account was created in 2011. Previously obscured by language and sheer volume of tweets, Torshin has written numerous times about his connections with the NRA, of which he is a known paid lifetime member. NPR has translated a selection of those posts that document Torshin's relationship to the group."

This I'll point out is a in depth Investigation by the FBI

WASHINGTON
The FBI is investigating whether a top Russian banker with ties to the Kremlin illegally funneled money to the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump win the presidency, two sources familiar with the matter have told McClatchy.

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 sources said.

It is illegal to use foreign money to influence federal elections.

So am I at all surprised that the NRA would sell out democracy for money and power, NOPE not at all. The right wants to believe that they are being represented by the NRA and that the NRA is trying to support the second, bullshit , they are no better then their leaders . Which makes them lowlifes. They are owned by the GUN industry and don't give a shit about anything other then power and money hiding behind the American flag while they sell that flag out, much like many people in the right.
