“McConnell surely knew as a participant in high level intelligence briefings in 2016 that our electoral process was under attack by the Russians. Two weeks after the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence issued a joint statement in October 2016 that the Russian government had directed the effort to interfere in our electoral process, McConnell’s PAC accepted a $1 million donation from Blavatnik’s AI-Altep Holdings. The PAC took another $1 million from Blavatnik’s AI-Altep Holdings on March 30, 2017, just 10 days after former FBI Director James Comey publicly testified before the House Intelligence Committee about Russia’s interference in the election.”
I’m poking around into the FEC reports for 2016, and some reports from 2017. This really isn’t a “blog post” in the standard sense. It’s more like a log of information from the poking.
I just find it interesting that McConnell accepted the Blavatnik donation AFTER he’d been briefed on Russian interference.
