What’s Walker Hiding?
Scott Walker can’t seem to get his facts straight about Russian agent; Washington Post contradicts Walker spokesman's story
Further, Walker has declined to take a position in response to a question about Trump‘s joint press conference with Putin in Helsinki, during which Trump sided with Putin over the US Intelligence Community.
In his attempts to downplay his interactions with Butina, Walker claimed that he met her among thousands of people in an atrium.
However, the Washington Post reports that Walker actually met with Butina in a much smaller VIP green room.
So, we have some questions:
- How did a then-26 year old agent of the Russian government get into a VIP area with Walker?
- Butina said that Walker did not show any “aggression” toward Russia in her meeting with him. What did Walker say about Russia in the interaction that left her with this impression?
- Why did Butina attend Walker’s presidential launch event after meeting him at the NRA?
- Why is Walker’s spokesperson claiming the NRA meeting took place in a large atrium when the Washington Post is reporting it in fact took place in a VIP green room?
- Is Walker the presidential candidate referenced in the FBI affidavit accompanying Butina’s indictment?
- Why did Walker’s PAC accept $1 million from Putin-linked oligarch Len Blavatnik, how was the donation solicited, and what meetings took place leading up to or following the contribution?
- Why did Walker decline to denounce Donald Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin, when Trump took Putin’s side over our own intelligence community and law enforcement?
- If Walker won’t stand up to Trump on Russia, on child separation, on Harley Davidson, or for dairy workers, what exactly will he stand up to Trump on?
