Russian oligarch indicted in campaign finance plot to win cannabis license in Nevada

Russian businessman Andrey Muraviev was charged Monday with violating federal campaign finance laws in 2018, including illegally funneling donations to then-Republican gubernatorial hopeful Adam Laxalt, as part of an effort to win a recreational marijuana business license in Nevada.


Prosecutors contend Muraviev violated the law prohibiting foreign nationals from donating to federal, state or local elections. Prosecutors also said Muraviev, with the aid of the others, sought to hide the source of the donations, also violating campaign finance laws.

The funds went to political campaigns in Nevada, Florida and Texas. Donation promises were also made to campaigns in New York and New Jersey. In September 2018, Muraviev traveled to Las Vegas with the group as part of their plan but did not attend any political events, the indictment said.
