Lloyd Doggett: The NRA ‘Had a Big Investment as Vladimir Putin Had a Big Investment in Seeing Donald Trump Elected’

‘It’s clear that Putin cared enough they dispatched the woman you just mentioned who is in jail right now as an agent to try to connect better into the NRA’

RUSH EXCERPT:

DOGGETT: “No the NRA, of course, here in Congress, so intertwined with the Republican Party and the Trump Administration, that it really means no Republican action when it comes to reasonable gun safety. But $30 million. They had a big investment as Vladimir Putin had a big investment in seeing Donald Trump elected.”

BURNETT: “When the NRA says they do not use Russian funds, which would be against the law. Do you believe that Russia was somehow using the NRA or involved here to funnel money to help elect trump? Does it go that far, in your --”

DOGGETT: “It certainly could. It needs to be thoroughly explored. I hope the special prosecutor or special counsel is doing just that. It’s clear that Putin cared enough they dispatched the woman you just mentioned who is in jail right now as an agent to try to connect better into the NRA and we don’t know what her role fully was. There’s just such incredible irony that the NRA would link up with a Putin, who restricts gun rights and claim that they’re promoting gun rights.”
