MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said this week if it wasn’t for impeachment, the collapse of the NRA would be the biggest story in American politics right now.
“We have watched this conservative political behemoth, with really no equal in conservative politics, we have watched it collapse at breathtaking speed.”
She said its legal status was that of Donald Trump’s charity: very precarious.
“The NRA appears to be very worried about a ever-widening investigation by the attorney general of the state of New York. New York’s Attorney General Letitia James subpoenaed more than 90 current and former member of the NRA’s board … If the NRA’s behavior has been bad enough New York could conceivably revoke its non-profit status and shut it down which is what the state of New York just did with Donald Trump’s charitable foundation this year.”
At any other time this would be the biggest story of the year, she said.
“This would be like a show stopping deal at any other time. The once fearsome NRA, the most powerful entity in conservative Politics, I mean they’re in free fall. Any other time in any other news environment the media would be watching that slow motion car crash endlessly.”
