In November 2016, a Charlotte City Councilman with ties to the Clintons attended a rally reportedly organized by Russian interests.
“Defendants and their co-conspirators organized a rally entitled ‘Charlotte Against Trump’, in Charlotte, North Carolina, held on or about November 19, 2016,” said an indictment by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III against 13 Russians, released on Feb. 16.
The indictment alleges that Russian special interests bought advertisements and created groups on social media to influence American voters in the 2016 presidential election.
According to the indictment, Russian interests, using social media platforms, went so far as to organize rallies both for and against Hillary R. Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Sen. Rafael E. “Ted” Cruz (R.-Tx.), and President Donald J. Trump. Unwitting Americans subsequently participated in those rallies.
One of those unwitting Americans was Charlotte City Councilman Braxton Winston II, a Democrat.
A photo provided to Big League Politics by the Charlotte Regional Republican Volunteer Network shows Winston at the Russian organized “Charlotte Against Trump” rally, held on Nov. 9 in the Queen City.
Winston, a community activist, quickly rose to prominence after protesting the death of Keith Lamont Scott, who was killed by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer in September of 2016. The officer involved in the shooting was cleared of wrongdoing, which led to riots in Charlotte. One person died as a result of the rioting.
Winston has also ingratiated himself with the Clinton family. After his election to the city council, Chelsea V. Clinton, daughter president William J. “Bill” Clinton tweeted the following:
Mr. President, @BraxtonWinston is a superb example of an actual “very fine” person. And, yes I️ know he won an election in Charlotte, not Charlottesville. Still, please learn more about him @realDonaldTrump @potus (My first #280charactertweet. Please understand @chrissyteigen!) pic.twitter.com/6OpNyLiHpg

“Mr. President, @BraxtonWinston is a superb example of an actual “very fine” person,” she said, sharing an iconic photo of Winston taken during the Charlotte riots.
To date, the narrative surrounding Russian involvement in the 2016 election cycle has been focused squarely on Trump. It is now clear that multiple politicians – Democrats included – may have benefitted from the meddling, and that none willingly colluded with Russia to gain an advantage.

WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic
Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.
Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.
Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.
Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.
In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.
Watch the segment here:
Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.
American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.
America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.
