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.

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.
