The Senate is looking at Russia-owned American Ethane and its deals with China. Not a moment too- no, wait, they're a little slow here.  https://www.wsj.com/articles/senators-scrutinize-u-s-china-ethane-supply-deals-11567594801 

Mikhail Yuriev, Andrey Kunatbaev, and Mariia Butina funder Konstantin Nikolaev buy 90% of a fossil fuel company in Texas to do deals with China, and we just now notice? 🤔

And so this Russian billionaire buying up fossil fuel operations in Texas also funded Mariia Butina's...firearms group in America?  https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/07/22/maria-butina-paid-russian-billionaire-konstantin-nikolaev/815856002/ 

Think Sen. Cruz and Sen. Cornyn ever knew about this deal and let it go through without a peep?

Or the connection to Russian firearms group bribery/lobbying?

That might explain a lot. </>
