NY Attorney General Subpoenas Over 90 People Associated With NRA

The New York attorney general has issued a subpoena for records of money transfers between the NRA and its foundation.

New York, NY – The New York attorney general issued a subpoena to the National Rifle Association (NRA) seeking more information about the way money flowed between the NRA and its charitable foundation.

The investigation has been going on for eight months, according to The New York Times.

The newest subpoena covered areas such as campaign finance, payments made to board members, and tax compliance.

Documents sought by the subpoena included records of NRA-controlled entities such as the NRA Foundation, The New York Times reported.

Recent tax filings showed that $36 million was diverted from the foundation to the NRA in 2018, which raised concerns among tax experts.

The New York Times did an analysis and found that the NRA Foundation had transferred more than $200 million of the funds it raised to the NRA between 2010 and 2017.

Both the NRA and its foundation are tax-exempt organizations, but only foundation contributions are tax-deductible.

Tax experts have expressed concern that the NRA Foundation has become a back door way for people to make tax-deductible donations to the NRA, the New York Times reported.

The subpoena sought documents involving internal communications about NRA filings to the Federal Election Commission and communications with two political consulting firms who worked for the NRA.

Court records showed that it appeared the NRA had run several million dollars’ worth of expenses through their consulting advertising firm, Ackerman McQueen, The New York Times reported.

The NRA has blamed Ackerman McQueen for overbilling and accused them of fraud, and claimed the discovery of the discrepancies was discovered during an internal audit last year.

Prosecutors are also looking for information on hiring decisions and the salaries paid to the 76 members of the NRA’s Board of Directors, according to The New York Times.

In one questionable example, the NRA paid actor and long-time board member Tom Selleck $476,000 for collectible guns they planned to use for fundraising.

The New York Attorney General’s Office and the NRA refused to comment for the New York Times story.

Huh! But no ones investigating Newsom and his band of merry men for giving Eric Holder's law firm a one million dollar retainer for illegal aliens representation! Since when does law makers use tax payer money to protect illegal entry into the US? Why isn't this investigated? Who the hell knows how much they've frivolously wasted tax money?

As a Life Member of the NRA I'll admit we have had our INTERNAL Squabbles but We have shown the world How Politicians stand on the support of OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO SELF PROTECTION sense it's conception. We have paid for legal representation for not only our own organization but for Millions of Gun Owners all the way to the SCOTUS. Gun lobbyist have for decades had the NRA in its sights because of what I just stated. There may be friction within our organization but ast to the attacks from the outside we are like a momma bear protecting her cubs.

Make NO MISTAKE, a vote for or support for Democrats is endorsing the DESTRUCTION of our Nation and everything that for centuries has stood strong. Democrats will NOT STOP, will leave NO ITEM intact in their desire to destroy this country and rebuild it into the perversion of their own. Votes have consequences ! ! !

I just hope the NRA takes this thing very seriously. Remember tax evasion was what put Al Capone in prison, not all the murders, shooting, eatings or gangland mayhem.

Seems there are more pressing issue that going after law abiding citizens. This is nothing but an anti-gun agenda. She needs to be looking into the Clintons, Shaperlton, Jackson, Biden, and Cumo money handling if she wants something which has more stink to it.

This definitely smells of politics big time. I know, how about doing your job of convicting criminals. I think there is plenty for you to do there, or can't you do it.

More KGB tactics. "Show me the man and I will find the crime". In this case, it is "Show me the group and I will find the crime".
