Jim Justice, Riley Moore Names Fly As Trump-Russian Coercion Hits “WV”
WV GOP Leaders Capito & Justice should set the record straight
(Charleston, WV)–When CNN reported late Wednesday night that a possible West Virginian with political ties was involved with Donald Trump in Russia coercion, two names began to swirl the rumor mill: Jim Justice and Riley Moore (nephew of GOP Senator Shelley Moore Capito).
Last year it was discovered that Riley Moore had lobbied Congress for Ukraine’s pro-Russian government. Senator Capito has had strong ties to Donald Trump which is leading people to believe it is possible that her nephew Riley Moore was in a great position to get involved with Russia and Donald Trump.
Governor Jim Justice’s name is also at the top of this list because of his connections in Russia mining.
“No one knows what the facts are so it’s hard to be sure what’s going on, but West Virginians deserve to know the truth. To be honest, Justice, Capito, and Moore don’t need this looming over their heads and neither do the people of West Virginia,” said Belinda Biafore WVDP Chair. “All parties should dispel their names from this situation because the looming suspicion does nothing but threaten the integrity of our great state.”
CNN reported that the email documents from Rick Dearborn stated that the person was from “WV”.
