Maria Butina arrested

Just hours after President Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin, the JusticeDepartment announced the arrest of a Russian national — Maria Butina — for secretly trying to influence US politics at Russia’s behest.

An affidavit filed by an FBI agent asserts that Butina tried to cozy up to a gun rights organization so she could influence a major political party, all the while working for a top Russian central bank official and trying to advance the interests of the Russian state — and not registering as a foreign agent.

Though the affidavit does not name many of the people and groups involved, previous reporting and context clues make it clear that the gun rights group is the National Rifle Organization, the party is the Republican Party, and the Russian official is Alexander Torshin.
