Happening with Maria Butino while everyone is distracted

Russian agent Maria Butina to be released from prison, sent back to Moscow


Russian agent Maria Butina is due to be released from prison Friday — and immediately escorted back to the Motherland, according to her lawyer.

Butina, a pro-gun activist who infiltrated conservative political circles as a secret agent for the Kremlin, will be released from a low-security prison in Tallahassee, Fla., where she was serving 18 months for working as an undeclared agent of a foreign government without registering in the US.

The red-headed inmate will be sent packing back to Moscow accompanied by two Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, her lawyer, Robert Driscoll, told the Washington Examiner.

However, he said he has been kept in the dark over her exact itinerary — knowing only that she will get to make one call before boarding her final connecting flight home.

“They tend to do these things like they’re moving a nuclear bomb, and they’re not,” Driscoll complained of US officials’ secrecy.

1. I guess she's not testifying against anybody. The entire NRA. Russia, Republicans thing

Was nothing?

I'm so sick of everything being nothing.

7. Don't think that "everyone" was distracted

I think this was mentioned on one of the MSNBC shows earlier this week.

9. In a normal universe we would have leveraged her information to our advantage and benefit.

But this is the trump/barr universe where russia/nra are so clean and pure there is just nothing to see. Nothing to see..

11. Brilliant. Go after the jailers, while letting the inmates go free. Good plan.

The distruction to our democracy, and the rule of law, will take a looong time to repair.
