Mitch McConnell ('Moscow Mitch')

Mitch McConnell helps Russia, and Kentucky gets investment. "In January, McConnell barely was able to stop a Democratic effort to reimpose the sanctions on Deripaska that Trump had rolled back. Mitch McConnell kept the sanctions from being reimposed and now he is getting his payoff. This is one of the easier forms of Russia/Republican corruption that one will ever see. McConnell enabled the Russian attack on US democracy in 2016 by refusing to stand with Obama in denouncing Russian efforts to manipulate the presidential election. It isn’t just Donald Trump. The Russians have bought themselves a political party, and the Senate Majority Leader is getting rewarded for his loyalty to mother Russia." - Politicususa

Russian support for Trump

"In 2017, the Trump Inaugural Committee decided to take $1 million from Shustorovich, according to a Federal Election Commission filing. In 2012, Shustorovich, who was born in Moscow and moved to the US as a child, implied in an interview with Wired that he had good relations with Russian president Vladimir Putin and prime minister Dmitri Medvedev." - Quartz

"Admitted Russian spy Maria Butina’s Republican operative boyfriend wrote in private communications that he was involved in setting up a “very private line of communication” between Russia and the Trump campaign using the National Rifle Association as a “conduit.” Butina, a 30-year-old Russian gun rights activist, worked for years to cultivate relationships within Republican and NRA circles. She was charged with working as an agent of the Russian government earlier this year and on Monday agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy charges and cooperate with prosecutors." - Alternet
