In what can only be described as a tale of epic and shameless hypocrisy, former John Kasich and John McCain operative John Weaver has registered as a foreign agent for a Russian state-owned nuclear energy company.
Weaver will be paid $350,000 by Rosatom to lobby the Trump administration and Congress against implementing any new sanctions that would affect Russia’s nuclear energy industry. He’s registered with the Justice Department as a foreign agent of the country he’s claimed for years was behind a nefarious plot to insert Donald Trump as a puppet figure at the head of the United States government.
Weaver’s hypocrisy couldn’t be any more transparent and self-serving. The operative has tweeted over the years slamming what he supposedly perceived as a weak approach to U.S-Russia relations by the Trump administration.
The political consultant appears to directly contradict himself in several statements on the topic of Russia sanctions. He’ll have a tough case to make against nuclear energy sanctions, considering he’s advocated for even more Russia sanctions for years.
The old-guard consultant, who became known in Republican politics for his work in 2008 for John McCain’s failed presidential campaign, attempted to rationalize in a Twitter thread what many of his liberal followers viewed as a double-crossing from an early purveyor of the now-debunked Trump-Russia conspiracy theory.
It’s unclear why exactly the American subsidiary of the Russian state-owned company Rosatom chose to hire Weaver as their point man to push their preferred policies within the federal government.
It’s possible the company is seeking to utilize Weaver’s connections among reactionary liberals freshly skeptical of all things Russian to smooth over a policy that exempts Russian uranium exports to the United States from the already stringent regime of sanctions upon Russian companies and individuals.
The hack will take his $350,000 and likely continue to accuse anyone critical of establishment liberal Republicans of being an agent of Putin.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody Orders Investigation Into Mike Bloomberg’s Felon Voting Bribery Scheme
The oligarch may be held accountable.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has ordered an investigation into what appears to be a bribery voting scheme organized by Democrat oligarch Mike Bloomberg. Moody ordered the investigation after Governor Ron DeSantis requested it, following Congressman Matt Gaetz in questioning the legality of his felon voting scheme.

Bloomberg is personally paying off the outstanding fines of black and Hispanic felons in order to restore their voting rights in Florida before the November election. Florida prevents felons with outstanding fines from voting, and those responsible for criminal acts are nominally supposed to pay the fines incurred from their crimes- not an out-of-state billionaire.
Bloomberg is also nakedly racially discriminating in his felon voting scheme, reserving the fine repayment for black and Hispanic felons, only.
In her letter on the matter, AG Moody requests that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigate the scheme, as well as the FBI(as if they’d actually do anything.)
The Democrat oligarch could potentially face felony charges pertaining to obstruction of justice for paying fines that convicted felons are supposed to be responsible for, and election fraud for what seems to be bribing nominally eligible voters to tacitly support the Democrat candidate. The bribery charges could potentially make Bloomberg liable for federal criminal charges.
Florida passed a felon re-enfranchisement referendum in 2018, changing previous state law that barred felons from voting. They still have to pay off outstanding fines to utilize the right. The swing state has been trending red, but it remains a competitive must-win state for President Trump in November.
