Maria Butina — the Russian secret agent convicted of gathering intelligence on the National Rifle Association and other US groups — has been begging for cash on social media to help pay for her legal costs.

The gun rights activist posted a video on Instagram Saturday, explaining how the money would be used to help fund an appeal. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has reportedly said that the Russian government would not pay for her legal costs.

“We aren’t financing a lawyer, but we are doing everything so that [Butina] will be afforded all rights as a Russian citizen,” Zakharova said Sunday on state TV.

I find it interesting that the Russian government is not paying Butina’s legal fees.

Is that because she cooperated with prosecutors for a plea deal?

Still, it is kind of interesting that she made her plea in Russian when she apparently speaks English quite well. 

And according to journalist Natasha Bertrand Butina has not been entirely abandoned by the Kremlin. 


So Butina got a plea deal but is still asking for help with her legal fees because the Kremlin will not pay them.

Yet they will host the video she made asking for the donations in Russian. 

I have to admit I am a little confused here. 

You would think there would be an oligarch or two who would pay her fees, or perhaps Trump will pony up. 

After all, she tried so very hard to help him get elected.

    US intercepts Russian bombers, fighter jets off the coast of Alaska

    Washington (CNN)US F-22 stealth jets intercepted four Russian bombers and two Russian Su-35 fighter jets off the coast of Alaska on Monday, according to a statement from North American Aerospace Defense Command.

    The Russian long-range bombers flew into the Air Defense Identification Zone, which extends approximately 200 miles off Alaska’s western coast.
    US F-22s fighter jets and an E-3 Airborne Early Warning and Control System from North American Aerospace Defense Command “positively identified and intercepted a total of four Tupolev Tu-95 bombers and two Su-35 fighters entering the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) on May 20,” NORAD said in a statement.

    The Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed the incident in a tweet Tuesday, saying the Tu-95 bombers “made scheduled sorties over the neutral waters of the Chukotka, Bering and Okhotsk seas, as well as along the western coast of Alaska and the northern coast of the Aleutian Islands.”
    “At certain stages of the route, Russian aircraft were escorted by #F22 fighter jets of the #USAF. The total flight time exceeded 12 hours,”

    She needs to sell porn videos if she wants to make money. She and Dakota could fondle each others guns and private parts.

    Must be a ploy. Maybe they are checking the barometer to see how many American sympathizers out there. That putin, he never plays nice and neither does his minions.

    OT/OUTSTANDING!
    A record-breaking 34 black women are graduating from West Point Academy — the highest number in the school’s history. But with more than 900 students graduating this weekend — they are less than 4% of the graduating class.
