MISLEADING
Butina came to the U.S. as more than a mere student

Maria Butina worked as a “special assistant” to Alexander Torshin, a former Russian legislator and central bank official. For two years, she not only attended classes but engaged in a systematic effort to promote Russia among Americans involved in politics.
