This article regarding NRAs link to Russia-Trump Campaign back-channels, was written nine months ago.

It is only today, December 3rd, 2017 that the MSM acknowledges a "bombshell" email linking NRA member Paul Erickson's efforts to connect the Kremlin with the Trump Campaign.

Writes The New York Times:


Quote:
In [the email], N.R.A. member said he wanted the advice of Mr. Dearborn and Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, then a foreign policy adviser to Mr. Trump and Mr. Dearborn’s longtime boss, about how to proceed in connecting the two leaders.

Russia, he wrote, was “quietly but actively seeking a dialogue with the U.S.” and would attempt to use the N.R.A.’s annual convention in Louisville, Ky., to make “‘first contact.’” The email, which was among a trove of campaign-related documents turned over to investigators on Capitol Hill.
