Sen. Ron Wyden (Dem-Oregon) on Monday sent a series of additional questions to the National Rifle Association about whether it receives funding from foreign sources, including Russia.
Meanwhile, media reports have indicated close ties between the NRA and Russian oligarch Alexander Torshin.
“I remain concerned about the inability to get clear answers to several questions about the possibility that Russian actors funneled foreign funds into NRA electioneering activity,” Wyden said in the letter. “Clear answers to these questions are a matter of national security, campaign finance law, and American sovereignty.”
