Wyden blasts FEC Republicans for blocking probe into NRA over possible Russia donations

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) condemned Republicans on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) after they voted on Friday to block an in-depth investigation into allegations that Russians illegally donated to the National Rifle Association (NRA) in an effort to benefit President Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

"A foreign adversary interfered in the 2016 presidential election and the response from Republicans at every level, whether it be President Trump, congressional Republicans, or now the Republican appointees on the Federal Election Commission, has been to bury their heads in the sand or actively obstruct getting to the bottom of what happened," Wyden said in a written statement provided to Newsweek.

"It's inexcusable that Republican commissioners would block an investigation into whether Russian money was funneled through the National Rifle Association to help President Trump," Wyden continued, according to Newsweek. "The blatant partisanship is appalling, undermines our democracy and leaves us vulnerable to continued interference in 2020."

In March 2018, the FEC launched a preliminary investigation into allegations that Alexander Torshin, a Russian banker and former politician with ties to President Vladimir Putin, and Maria Butina, who admitted to working as a Russian agent to infiltrate the NRA, made illegal donations to the NRA in an effort for those donations to support Trump's presidential bid.

The NRA and its lobbying arm spent a total of $30 million in the 2016 election to support Trump.

shocking.

related- turns out convicted russian spy butina was in "a relationship" with the ceo of overstock.

they infiltrated everything, insidehoops included.

I suspect there will be a rash of investigations after the next election if a Democrat manages to take the White House.

I think people like this guy are going to make 2020 a little different. The more they talk and connect their insanity to Trump, the more his chances of a second term are damaged.

I'm not an impeachment person. I don't think he would be convicted in the Senate. I'm an impeachment investigation and hearings person. I want all the dirt, nefarious dealings and corruption to be on display front and center for the American people to see, and I think these investigations and hearings are a great way to do that.

Deutsche Bank has all but confirmed the bank is in possession of tax returns for President Trump and some of his immediate family. Names are redacted in the letter the bank just filed in response to Monday's court order, but it's clear who they are referring to.


not just the emperor, but the whole maga klan.

all of them.

hand em over.

A source close to Deutsche Bank says Trumpís tax returns show he pays very little income tax and, more importantly, that his loans have Russian co-signers.

If true, that explains every kind word Trump has ever said about Russia and Putin.

many people are saying it's billionaire oligarchs close to the big man in the kremlin.

will wait to hear directly from the sauce(s).

but if true...

No, I think impeachment hearings are the best way to get all of the dirt and dross out into the open given the subpoena and investigative powers of the committees involved. I'd fully support impeachment and conviction if the evidence turned out to be damaging enough and I thought the Senate would convict, but as it stands, Trump could secretly sell US nuclear secrets to the Saudis and Republican Senators would subsequently call for investigations into Hillary Clinton for selling Uranium to the Russians. However, the fact that the Senate may be unwilling to do their job should not preclude the House from doing theirs.
