SHOW YOUR WORK! David Hogg makes ‘SERIOUS’ claim about NRA, but where’s his evidence?

Mariia Butina, the 29-year-old Russian national charged by the DOJ with conspiracy, allegedly tried to develop a relationship with the NRA. Now, while that’s definitely worth looking into, David Hogg’s take on the situation is a little more … dramatic:

Russia used the NRA to give Trump $30 million
Russia used the NRA to give Trump $30 million
Russia used the NRA to give Trump $30 million
Russia used the NRA to give Trump $30 million
Russia used the NRA to give Trump $30 million #NRAgate

RT this so everyone knows

The NRA spent over $30 million on Trump’s campaign. But it’s a bit of a leap from that to “Russia used the NRA to give Trump $30 million.” Especially if you’re not willing to show your work.

Sorry, will need proof before RT’ing.

Can you post a credible link to the facts that back this statement up? And rolling stone magazine is not exactly a credible source.

This is serious David. This requires evidence.

Yep. You can’t just throw out accusations like that unless you’ve got some proof to back you up.

Writing something x10 like you do on a blackboard when you’re held after class does not make it true. https://t.co/zUcvX0XnQF

In any event, here’s a really fair exit question:

Child, why would Russia have a vested interested in American citizens remaining armed? https://t.co/ql3ZVuld3g
