Reps. Lieu and Rice Released Joint Letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray Calling for an Expansive FBI Investigation into “Any Potential Illegal Contributions by Russia to the Trump Campaign” and “Whether any NRA Officials or Member in the House or Senate or Their Staffs Were Aware of Russia’s Involvement”
According to McClatchy, FBI Reportedly Investigating Whether Russian Banker and Politician Alexander Torshin Funneled Russian Money to the NRA
NEW YORK – Everytown for Gun Safety released the following statement as Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) and Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) released a joint letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray calling for an expansive investigation into whether Russia funneled money to the NRA to help elect President Donald Trump, U.S. House or U.S. Senate candidates in 2016, and whether any NRA officials, members of Congress or congressional staff had any knowledge of Russia’s alleged involvement.
STATEMENT BY ANDREW ZUCKER, FEDERAL MEDIA RELATIONS DIRECTOR FOR EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY:
“We applaud Reps. Lieu and Rice for working to get to the bottom of the NRA’s Russia connections. Until the NRA comes clean — on Russian money and its ties to Russia — then the American people will keep wondering what it is the NRA might be hiding.”
