NRA Chapter Trial Reveals Unusual Expenditure Marked ‘Russia’

One bizarre moment occurred Wednesday in the National Rifle Association (NRA) bankruptcy proceedings. According to Law and Crime News investigative reporter Adam Klasfeld, who tweeted the trial live, a Russian reference popped up at a strange point.

Looking at the NRA’s spending, the NRA’s Brewer law firm sent an invoice to General Counsel John Frazer’s office for $ 59,155.25 in 2020. It was marked “Russia”.

Ackerman McQueen, the NRA’s former public relations firm prior to their argument, asked Frazer about this while he testified at the booth. There was one objection, “citing confidentiality,” said Klasfeld. Judge Harlin Hale removed the questions from the record.

Ackerman McQueen’s attorney Mike Gruber argued that it should be deleted, but Judge Hale ruled it out.

Frazer previously testified that he was not aware of the submission of Chapter 11 of the NRA. He only found out on the day of the bankruptcy.

The process was a disaster for the NRA, which exposed more corruption and wasteful spending than previously known. One thing in particular was that NRA President Wayne LaPierre lived aboard a 30-meter-long luxury luxury yacht after the mass shootings in Parkland, Florida. He said it was for his protection.

“They just let me be used as a security retreat because they knew the threat I was under. And I was basically facing a presidential threat with no presidential security for the number of threats I received, ”the New York Daily News reported on LaPierre.

LaPierre also cited “safety reasons” for spraying mosquitoes in his home, the Washington Post reported. In 2019, LaPierre asked the NRA to buy him a $ 6.5 million mansion, also for his own safety, the Wall Street Journal reported.

A lawyer declined the interview, citing confidentiality.

Judge Hale struck it off the file.
