Why did the NRA host Torshin and Butina at multiple NRA conventions, allowing them access to its Golden Ring of Freedom high-dollar donor group? In a new CNN report, it was revealed that “Torshin and Butina had become fixtures at the NRA’s high-dollar donor events, according to attendees,” even attending a dinner for the NRA’s large donor program, known as the Golden Ring of Freedom. The NRA has recently claimed that no Russian individuals were members of Golden Ring of Freedom.
Did NRA officials ever discuss the 2016 election with Torshin, Butina or other Russian officials in the lead up to the 2016 election?
Is the NRA still in contact with Alexander Torshin, Maria Butina or other individuals connected to the Kremlin? The NRA said in a recent letter to Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) that it was reviewing its relationship with Alexander Torshin.
