Credo just launched a petition calling on the Senate Judiciary Committee to “conduct a full investigation into the allegations that the NRA helped funnel Russian money into the 2016 U.S. elections.”
Earlier this month, McClatchy broke the story that the NRA is under investigation by the FBI. The FBI is investigating whether Russian Central Bank head Alexander Torshin illegally funneled money to the NRA to help elect Donald Trump president.
The NRA’s relationship with the government of Vladimir Putin dates back to at least 2011 when Torshin was introduced to then-NRA president David Keene. Since that time, Torshin has attended 4 NRA meetings in the U.S. And NRA leaders have made reciprocal trips to Moscow to meet with Torshin and other Putin lieutenants.
In 2016, the NRA spent record money—more than $70 million according to some sources. It is illegal to use foreign money to influence federal elections in the United States.
Please sign Credo’s petition and tell the Senate to investigate NRA collusion with the government of Vladimir Putin:

Alexander Torshin has great expertise in money laundering and the Senate should do its duty and see if Putin’s government ran money through the NRA.
