imagine this, her lawyers said she is not a flight risk... one because she had an american close relationship.... BUT


wow she complained to her russian handler that cohabitating with her target was horrible and wanted out of that part, obviously, Putin rejected leaving him. and in another correspondence during this time she offered sex to a NRA member to get into the NRA. IE her relationship was a sham to gain entry into right-wing political circles of influence.

Mueller adds counterespionage prosecutor to Butina case
Quote:

Rachel Maddow reports the surprise addition of Deborah Curtis, a high ranking DoJ counterespionage prosecutor to the Mariia Butina case in which the government argued for the need to keep Butina in custody lest she flee.

Apparently Russian money was funneled to the NRA—and then to Trump campaign. Winter is near.

Overstock CEO resigns due to romantic involvement with Russian agent


Quote:
Patrick Byrne resigned as CEO of online retailer Overstock.com Thursday after the company publicly announced his relationship with admitted Russian agent Maria Butina, the New York Times reports.

The big picture: Writing in a letter to shareholders, Byrne said his disclosure "may affect and complicate all manner of business relationships." The relationship lasted from 2015 to 2018 and was mostly unknown until Overstock posted a news release last week. Byrne was involved in the federal inquiry into the 2016 presidential election that was handled separately from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference. He said he had helped law enforcement agents with their "Clinton Investigation" and "Russia Investigation," per NYT.

"Thus, while I believe that I did what was necessary for the good of the country, for the good of the firm, I am in the sad position of having to sever ties with Overstock, both as C.E.O. and board member."
— Patrick Byrne wrote
Background: Butina was the first Russian national convicted for seeking to influence U.S. politics during the 2016 campaign. She was sentenced to 18 months in prison — with credit for 9 months already served — in April.

Butina pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge, admitting she and her American boyfriend, Republican operative Paul Erickson, worked with a Russian government
official to "establish unofficial lines of communication with Americans having power and influence over U.S. politics."
