Oh Rohrbacher has officially been pulled into the mess
But the California Republican said he does not know whether he is the U.S. congressman referenced in the indictment of Russian gun-rights activist Maria Butina, according to Politico.

Rohrabacher told Politico that he was part of the congressional delegation that visited Russia in August 2015, but he played down the significance of a meeting with Butina, saying he was joined by another U.S. lawmaker along with other Americans.

"I know I had dinner with [Butina] along with another member, along with a visiting delegation to Russia," Rohrabacher told Politico. "Is that something we should be worried about?"

The Daily Beast reported Tuesday that an aide to Rohrabacher had confirmed that he was the lawmaker mentioned in the indictment, but insisted that the meeting was "of no consequence."

"All he could recall about Ms. Butina is that she was an aide to Torshin who arranged a [breakfast] meeting and was of no consequence other than that," the aide, Ken Grubbs, told The Daily Beast.
