The Outdoor Channel Paid Russian Spy

From The Chicago Tribune comes this little note:

With fellow students, Butina was coy about how she was paying for school. She told the Senate Intelligence Committee in April that she had received some income in 2016 from a $5,000-a-month consulting deal with the Outdoor Channel television network to provide advice on a planned program on hunting in Russia, according to a person familiar with her testimony.

The company's chief executive, Jim Liberatore, accompanied an NRA delegation that was hosted by Butina and her gun-rights group in Moscow in December 2015, according to photos of the trip.

A spokesman for the Outdoor Channel did not respond to requests for comment.
