A U.S. judge today postponed Maria Butina’s plea agreement hearing until Thursday.
Butina is expected to plead guilty of being a Russian agent who conspired with Russians and Americans to throw the election to Trump, funnel cash to the NRA and other political figures, and soften U.S. foreign policy towards Moscow. Thursday will be an important news day if this plea hearing schedule holds. She was charged in July, and originally pleaded not guilty. The court considered her a high flight risk. She’s been in jail for months.-Boing Boing
