The left is so married to its Russia conspiracy story that they’re starting to see Russian connections everywhere. The latest buffoonery suggests that the NRA was somehow involved with Russia in Trump’s 2016 campaign.
The Washington Times reports:
Political opponents target NRA with charges of funneling Russian money to Trump campaign
The National Rifle Association is increasingly factoring into anti-Trump lawmakers’ and groups’ theories of collusion during the 2016 campaign — but activists at the NRA’s convention last week shrugged off the accusations as another part of Democrats’ “witch hunt.”
Some NRA members said they hadn’t heard the accusations, while others said they were disappointed but not surprised that their political opponents were targeting them rather than 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton with questions about Russian activities surrounding the election.
“To me, it sounds like they went after this witch hunt for Donald Trump, there’s nothing to it, and they thought, ‘Hey, Russia, that seems like a story that takes off, so let’s see if we can smear the NRA with it as well,’” said Blake Kennedy, 56, an information technology architect from Seattle.
The accusations have been swirling for several months, driven in particular by Sen. Ron Wyden, Oregon Democrat, and several high-profile gun control groups that suggest in thinly veiled language that Russian operatives siphoned money into the U.S. election through the NRA, which was a major backer of Mr. Trump.
Has everyone on the left lost their minds? They still can’t just accept the fact that they lost.
