On Full Frontal, Samantha Bee discussed Maria Butina, the young Russian woman who is charged with being a spy and infiltrating the National Rifle Association( NRA ).

” If the news is starting to feel like a bad movie, it's because thanks to Maria Butina, it is ,” Bee began.

” Butina is the founder of the Russian pro-gun group Right to Bear Arms, which she allegedly used to infiltrate the GOP and NRA ,” she continued.” Her boss, Russian mobster and naughty little son Alexander Torshin, is being investigated for funneling Russian fund into the NRA to push a pro-Russian agenda .”
