An attorney general who tried to launch investigations against President Trump has just been exposed as having accepted large campaign donations from a man with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reported:
“New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has accepted more than $60,000 in small donations from Leonard Blavatnik, a Ukrainian-born energy billionaire with ties to Russian oligarchs, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation examination of the Democrat’s financial disclosure reports.
Blavatnik plowed $25,000 into Schneiderman’s political war chest in January of 2017 – his generous contribution was one of the largest individual donations given to the New York Democrat this year. Blavatnik had previously donated $38,000 to the anti-Trump lawman from 2011 to 2014.
Schneiderman’s office has not responded to TheDCNF’s request for comment in time for the publication of this article.
His fundraising efforts highlighted various legal challenges against the president have earned Schneiderman $1.7 million in contributions during the first half of this year, Politico reported in July. Schneiderman’s first half of contributions were consistent with the $1.6 million he reported in January.
Blavatnik has been involved in Russia’s oil industry for several years.”
Why is it that it seems like all these people who are after Trump are guilty of whatever it is they are trying to accuse him of?
Will CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC report this?
