[Shocker] Hate Trump leader is… a Russian agent!?

Article:


One of the leaders of the Never Trump movement – who has spent years accusing the president of being a Russian puppet – has registered as an agent to lobby the U.S. government on behalf of… Russia.

That's not all – the GOP insider wants to make sure President Donald Trump doesn't cut off Russia's nuclear program!

Elite Republican strategist John Weaver ran John McCain's presidential campaigns before he moved on to work for former Ohio Governor John Kasich.

He headed up the Republican faction of the "Russian collusion" brigades…until the Kremlin paid him to switch sides.

Earlier this month, Politico reported that Weaver quietly accepted a contract paying $350,000 for just six months' work – lobbying the U.S. government to make sure it keeps selling uranium to Moscow.

The cash—or rubles—came from Tenam Corporation, the U.S. subsidiary of Rosatom, a nuclear energy company that is owned by the Russian government.

According to official documents outlining his role, Weaver would lobby against U.S. "sanctions or other restrictions in the area of atomic (nuclear) energy, trade or cooperation involving in any way the Russian Federation."

His first order of business would be quashing a bill introduced by Trump ally Lindsey Graham to limit uranium sales to Russia.


Why did the anti-Russian fanatic suddenly change his mind?

Weaver said that after Russia offered him a third-of-a-million dollars, he "researched the issue" and learned that building the Kremlin's nuclear arsenal "is in line with US national security interests."


In a series of tweets, Weaver defended his lobbying on behalf of a foreign power, saying it was nothing like Trump's alleged collusion with Russia. "We can't paint everything with the same brush," Weaver said.

The only thing the Russians care about is sowing discord here. Get people to hate each other. Get people to lose faith in all of their leaders. Then, like the gangsters running their government get to rob us and take advantage of us while we're distracted.
