Patrick Lalley digs the Maria Butina story. He invited me on KSOO Radio this afternoon for a full segment on the arrested Russian agent, her connection with Republican operative and South Dakota native Paul Erickson, GOP Congressional candidate Dusty Johnson, and their Kremlin connection.
Our conversation begins at 34:10.
Lalley also mentioned Seth Tupper’s solid coverage of the Butina-Erickson-Johnson affair. See Tupper’s latest (including Johnson’s statement that Erickson offered Butina as a speaker at Johnson’s Teenage Republican camp speaker), as well as Tupper’s really good February 11, 2018, dig into Erickson’s background and connections to the Trump-Russia probe.
