The Spy Who Loved Pee, Cont.

Little Kremlin-on-the-Potomac

Mother’s Milk of Politcs

The age-old adage of Follow the Money remains relevant!

As near as I can decipher it, noted Russian Spy Lady Mariia Butina was funded by a Russian billionaire, Konstantin Nikolaev and she reported to Deputy Head of the Russian Central Bank Aleksandr Torshin, both of whom have ties to or work for Comrade Putin. So by having the funding for her coming outside of the Putin-Torshin nexus it makes it somewhat harder to trace back to Putin. I think…

Anyway, so Putin orders Butina to use her charms to infiltrate the NRA, and the funding get’s laundered and is harder to track back to Putin:

Putin > Torshin > Nikilaev > Butina > NRA > Trump

My favorite paragraph so far:

“For example, on at least one occasion, Butina offered an individual other than U.S. Person 1 sex in exchange for a position within a special interest organization. Further, in papers seized by the FBI, Butina complained about living with U.S. Person 1 and expressed disdain for continuing to cohabitate with U.S. Person 1.”

Person 1 is alleged to be Republican operative Paul Erickson, former CPAC board member, who apparantly did not know that Butina was using his male vanity to infiltrate the NRA from Sioux Falls, South Dakota where Russian femme fatales are known to gather just for the heck of it.

So this whole operation really is like a low-rent, rejected Bond script.

    Don’t discount Dakota. Natasha was known in those parts . . . and when you are talking about femmes fatale from Spotsylvania, they show up in the unlikeliest places.
