A day after a RUSSIAN AGENT is accused of funneling money through the NRA to REPUBLICANS candidates

The PARTY OF CORRUPTION continues

The Treasury Department will no longer require certain non-profit groups to disclose the names of major donors to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Groups that do not receive tax-deductible donations can now remove the names of donors who contribute $5,000 or more from their annual tax returns. Charities and other organisations receiving tax deductions for outside contributions are still required to report all of their donors, however.

The move impacts politically active lobbying organisations such as the National Rifle Association (NRA), which contributed $30m to help Donald Trump get elected, and Americans for Prosperity, a group closely associated with billionaire political donors, the Koch brothers, as well as labour unions and the NAACP.

Americans shouldn’t be required to send the IRS information that it doesn’t need to effectively enforce our tax laws,” he said in a statement. “The IRS simply does not need tax returns with donor names and addresses to do its job in this area”.

The decision was made public on Monday night, just as the Justice Department announced charges against Maria Butina, an alleged Russian foreign agent who embedded herself into Republican leadership circles through the NRA.

I think we know who their big donors are. The firearms manufacturers and sellers industry.
