Russia Funneled Money To Michael Johnson in 2018 [View all]

After a 4 year investigation the FEC found that Russian oligarchs with close ties to Putin funneled money to Magats through a US company, "American Ethane."

Money was funneled to Senators Kennedy and Cassidy. Money was funneled to House member Steve Scalise, to La. AG Jeff Landry, to the campaigns of Michael Johnson and Garrett Graves.

The FEC slapped American Ethane with a $9,500 penalty slap on the wrist.

They do it because they get away with it.

How many more Magats are compromised by Putin?
