      Last January, the people learned that special counsel Robert Mueller was investigating whether the National Rifle Association (NRA) was being used as a connection for Russia to give Donald Trump's 2016 campaign money. Since then, a number of Russians have been identified as having contacts with the NRA.

      Now the alleged Russian agent, gun activist Maria Butina, who aligned with the NRA and has been in custody since July of this year, wants to change her not guilty plea to one of guilty. It appears she has reached a plea deal.

      She is charged with "conspiracy and failing to register as a foreign agent," and Federal prosecutors have filed with the court to have a date set for her change of plea hearing.

      Prosecutors say they have “resolved” a case against a woman accused of being a secret agent for the Russian government, a sign that she likely has taken a plea deal.

      The information was included in a court filing Monday in the case against Maria Butina. Her lawyers and federal prosecutors have asked for a court hearing as soon as Tuesday morning.

      The documents did not provide details about the resolution.

      Prosecutors allege Butina, 30, gathered intelligence on American officials and political organizations. They said she used her contacts with the National Rifle Association.

      She is charged with conspiracy and acting as an unregistered foreign agent for Russia.

      Butina’s lawyer says she is a student interested in American politics and and better U.S.-Russian relations.

              this article you link is even more clear that had she registered as a foreign agent there would have been no crime. She was open about her actions and intentions. not open that she reported to a Russian connection. registration would have resolved that.

                      If she qualifies as an "agent", whatever the legal definition is, then she obviously should plead guilty to not registering because she didn't, but "secret agent" is just plain ludicrous. Amongst other things, during the election she went to a Trump rally and somehow managed to ask a question, which, as an aside, Trump refused to answer coherently. Even the GRU wouldn't be that clumsy and conspicuous.

                          Americans have long been fighting against Cuba only because it refused to be a brothel for good Americans. Now they are fighting against women only because they have Russian citizenship. I think they're about to start a war against children who complain about American diapers.

                              One woman, not "women" and conspiracy is what she said she is guilty of. Is conspiracy something you Russians consider normal behavior.

                                  Maria Butina, the Russian woman accused of running a secret campaign to influence powerful American conservatives, has agreed to plead guilty to conspiring to act as a foreign agent, bringing to a close a case that had drawn headlines with prosecutors talking of a sly seductress who traded sex to further the aims of her spymasters in Moscow.
