Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, April 20, 2019

Prosecutors have gone beyond previous expectations to ask for 18 months of jail time for Maria Butina in a case where they've alleged scandalous actions -- and had to walk back some of them -- yet still accuse the Russian woman of seeking to hurt the US in her work as a foreign agent.

From the United States' Memorandum in Aid of Sentencing: On the following day, November 11, the defendant provided the Russian Official with the name of an individual she claimed was being considered for Secretary of State. She asked the Russian Official to seek the input of the Russian government on the name she provided and told him, "our opinion will be taken into consideration" in the United States.

The military industrial complex needs enemies and with terrorism seemingly on decline, Russia is perfect. Waste, waste and waste more.

I don't disagree with your statement at all Mr Viking but I am curious... What does that have to do with the alleged crime that Maria Butina appears to have committed and has pleaded guilty to? I think she needs to be held accountable if she violated the law and especially if she intended to hurt the United States (debatable) but it's clear she has cooperated with prosecutors.

Send her back to Russia...with Love.

We have bigger fish to fry.
