More evidence of collusion between Russia and high level Democrats?
This marks the 3rd time a high level Democrat has been alleged to have business ties with Russia and the Russian oligarchy.
Hunter Biden received $3.5 million from Elena Baturina, the richest woman in Russia, and the widow of former Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov.
Previous reports also suggest that there was collusion between the Clinton campaign and Russia.
Given that all these high level connections to Russian business and politics exist within the Democratic Party, we have to ask ourselves: where is the real Russian collusion coming from?
Here’s what we currently know:
Affiliates of two European companies that fund Russia's Nord Stream 2 pipeline contributed to the campaign of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), who Republicans say has blocked sanctions on the Kremlin-backed project.

As Putin continues to play a dangerous game in eastern Europe, he is making tremendous strides thanks to a wave of lobbying and campaign contributions accepted by none other than @chuckschumer.https://t.co/0BGeLBBxNG

Investigative reporting by The Washington Free Beacon revealed:
ENGIE North America and BASF Corporation each gave $2,500 to Schumer in September through their corporate political action committees, according to newly disclosed Federal Election Commission records.
ENGIE North America’s parent company and a BASF subsidiary are part of a consortium of five companies that finance Nord Stream 2, which will transport natural gas from Russia to Germany.
Shouldn’t be allowed: foreign lobbying. Schumer is the one who is a Russia apologist.

All of this occurred as Schumer reportedly blocked requests from Senate Republicans for legislation to enforce sanctions on the Russian pipeline project after President Joe Biden waived sanctions last year.
At the time, Biden said that the pipeline was almost complete and imposing sanctions would be “counter-productive” for European relations.
