FBI Has Obtained Wiretaps Of Russian Official With NRA Ties Who Met Trump Jr.
Spanish police have handed over wiretaps of Alexander Torshin, the deputy governor of Russia’s central bank and a lifetime NRA member, to the FBI, Yahoo News reported Friday.
The outlet confirmed the news with José Grinda, a Spanish prosecutor who spoke at the Hudson Institute on Friday.
The NRA in March acknowledged receiving less than $1,000 from Torshin, who was one of several Russians sanctioned by the Treasury Department last month, for a lifetime membership in the organization.
McClatchy first reported in January that Torshin was under FBI investigation for possibly funneling illegal campaign funds to the NRA.
