In a delicious turn of events, the left’s smoking soviet era AK-47 that would have connected Trump to Russia turned out to be another toy gun with a “bang” flag in the barrel after finding out that the real gun was held by the Obama administration.

The media has attached itself to the Maria Butina story like an enthusiastic barnacle, only to find out that the alleged Russian spy that had attachments to right-wing organizations had actually met with Obama officials in 2015 according to Reuters:

The meetings, disclosed by several people familiar with the sessions and a report prepared by a Washington think tank that arranged them, involved Stanley Fischer, then Federal Reserve vice chairman, and Nathan Sheets, then Treasury undersecretary for international affairs.

Butina traveled to the United States in April 2015 with Alexander Torshin, then the Russian Central Bank deputy governor, and they took part in separate meetings with Fischer and Sheets to discuss U.S.-Russian economic relations during Democratic former President Barack Obama’s administration.

If Butina is the spy the left hoped she is, it’s not a good look for the left. I’m not sure if the media will continue on with the story at this rate, but if they do, it’ll be with a complete disregard to the fact that Butina was meeting with the left’s favorite president of all time.

Of course, that was before Russia was our enemy, according to when the left mocked Mitt Romney for calling Russia our greatest terrestrial enemy. That includes Obama, who reminded Romney that the cold war had been over for 20 years.
