Tulsi Gabbard Hires Russian Agent to Keep Hawaii Media in Check - 2018-01-05
Russia has lots of experience in media censorship. So perhaps it is logical that Rep Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI-2) hires an agent of the Russian government as a 'consultant' to keep Hawaii media under control.
But Gabbard's consultant, Chris Cooper of the Potomac Square Group, is no ordinary Russian agent. Cooper is allegedly one of seven identified as being at the center of illegal Russian lobbying efforts reaching into the Trump campaign and Congress.
Inquiries with Gabbard's DC office last June by reporter Christine Gralow—then stringing an article for Honolulu Magazine -- must have piqued the attentions of the numerous Hare Krishna cultists employed there. Within 24 hours a letter from Cooper, identifying himself as "a consultant to Rep. Tulsi Gabbard," riddled with misspellings and inaccuracies, landed in the in-box of Honolulu Magazine's editors.
