Accused Russian Agent Maria Butina Pleaded Guilty To Conspiring Against The US
Business Insider has reported that suspected Russian agent Maria Butina pleaded guilty to engaging in a conspiracy against the US.
Butina has long been suspected of working with a high-ranking Russian government official to infiltrate the National Rifle Association.
Earlier this year Butina was indicted, and prosecutors said she and the Russian official worked to create a "back channel" between Russia and the US, using the NRA as a conduit.
As part of her plea agreement, Butina will "cooperate fully, truthfully, completely and forthrightly with … any and all matters as to which the Government deems the cooperation relevant."
