Alleged Russian spy and NRA darling, Marina Butina, has been moved to the same jail as Paul Manafort.

Apparently, no one knows why.

A Russian woman charged with attempting to infiltrate the National Rifle Association and other American political groups as a covert agent for the Russian Federation has been moved from the D.C. jail to the Alexandria jail, her attorney and jail officials said Saturday.

Maria Butina, 29, was indicted July 17 by a grand jury on charges of conspiracy to act and failing to register as an agent of a foreign government. She pleaded not guilty; her attorney said Butina was merely networking to develop relationships with Americans.

An Alexandria jail spokeswoman declined to say why Butina was moved, and a spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service said, “As a matter of policy, we do not disclose information related to individual prisoners to protect their privacy, safety and security.”

A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office for the District said it does not oversee the detention of defendants nor typically disclose their location.

As you may or may not know this Alexandra jail is also the one currently housing Pual Manfort while he stands trial. 

Not sure if there is a connection, or if this is just a matter of convenience. 

According to Russian media, Butina is being held in “borderline torture” conditions:

The Russian embassy in the US, which has been closely following Butina’s case, says she was transferred from her Washington jail handcuffed, without warning or explanation for the move. Before the move, Butina was subjected to a “degrading full strip search,” and all her things were taken away, including books, shoes, towels and other hygiene items.

Butina was moved to a prison in Alexandria, Virginia, and spent the next 12 hours in a quarantine cell with no food and all the lights on, unable to sleep. She will now be kept in “administrative segregation,” which means locked up in solitary confinement – conditions bordering on torture, the embassy says.

Embassy staff paid an emergency visit to Butina in her new place of detention. They also intend to send another note of official protest to the US Department of State, in addition to the one recently filed over the inhumane treatment of the Russian citizen.

Look I am one of the first to admit that we desperately need prison reform in this country, but there is no way we are taking advice on humanitarian treatment from Russia.

    OT? “‘CLOSED LOOP’
    Ex-Fox News Analyst Ralph Peters Calls Former Colleagues Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson ‘Prostitutes’” “Fox isn’t immoral, it’s amoral,”
    “I am convinced that the president of the United States is in thrall to Vladimir Putin.”
    “He explained that he left Fox because he could not be part of an institution that was “assaulting the Constitution, the constitutional order, the RULE OF LAW.”
    “what Fox is doing is causing real harm to our country right NOW.”

    Deprived of food? Highly doubt it. As for all her personal belongings, strip search, that’s common procedure. Bordering torture? Ask Gitmo about torture.

    Wow. Putin is boiling mad. You can fry and egg on his head. But bottomline is, Putin and Trump haven’t made it official yet that our country has been sold out so he should keep his mouth shut. Until then, the United States is still the United States even with that treasonous bastardo in the white house.

    If she was transferred in the evening and dinner was at 6 p.m. and breakfast the next day isn’t until seven, yep she may have missed a meal. Hardly torture. Especially when compared to folks just trying to survive seeking asylum, sleeping on floors, having their kids snatched, etc,. Oooohhh Marina was separated from her shampoo!!!!!!!

    Makes sense if she has any court appearances left to make. Faster to get her to the Courthouse. On the other hand, there could be a Russian sub in the Potomac just waiting for her to be smuggled out with the dirty laundry.

    Really, like the prisons in Russia are the Hilton or Ritz type accommodations.

    If she doesn’t like the accommodations, stay in russia and don’t work as a spy in the USA

      I highly doubt Bernie Madoff is living like a king.
      The same reason I dislike celebrities and their “don’t you know who I AM?”
      You’re nothing but a human, but you sure think you’re all that. UGH.
