Notice that the facts listed on the guilty plea “do not constitute all facts known to the parties concerning the charges offense...”

“Russian Official” is apparently Alex Torshin; US Person 1 is apparently Paul Erickson, and the “wealthy and well-connected US person” who hosted Russian “friendship dinners” is believed to be Rockefeller heir George O’Neill, Jr. “Gun rights organization” is the National Rifle Association (NRA), of which both Torshin and Butina are apparently members.

From Butina’s guilty plea:
the United States and Defendant Maria Butina (“Butina”) stipulate and agree that the following facts are true and accurate. These facts do not constitute all facts known to the parties concerning the charges offense and covered conduct. This statement is being submitted by the parties to demonstrate that sufficient facts exist to establish that the defendant committed the offense to which she is pleading guilty.

Statement of Facts

The government’s evidence includes, but is not limited to the following:
Marria V. Butina, also known as Maria Butina, is a citizen of the Russian Federation. US Person 1 [Erickson] is a United States citizen. Beginning no later than March of 2015, Butina and US Person 1 agreed and conspired, with Russian government official [Torshin] (“Russian Official”) and at least one other person, for Butina to act in the United States under the direction of Russia Official without prior notification to the Attorney General. Russian Official [Torshin] has served as the Deputy Governor to the Russian Central Bank since at least 2015. He previously served as the First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation. Butina knows Russian Official…
