Great Photo. How Come We Don’t See this Shot in the American Media???

Maria Butina, the Russian gun rights activist who is alleged to have infiltrated the US National Rifle Association (NRA), has changed her plea to guilty, according to court documents filed by her lawyers on Monday.
She had originally pled not guilty to acting as an illegal foreign agent after being arrested in July by counter-espionage agents. The new plea likely means that she has made a deal with prosecutors.
“The parties have resolved this matter,” lawyers for both sides wrote in a joint statement. Butina will appear in court for a change-of-plea hearing later this week.
A deal could see Butina deported to Russia in the coming months in exchange for her testimony about her activities for the Kremlin within the NRA.
