The clocks are on the Kremlin though, not on the Cathedral.

The Russian accused of using sex, lies and guns to infiltrate US politics
Butina, a 29-year-old flame-haired Russian who once posed with guns in Russian GQ magazine, pleaded not guilty this week to charges she acted as a covert Russian agent working with a Kremlin-connected banker to spread influence in the US. Prosecutors allege she conspired with a Russian official, who CNN has learned is Alexander Torshin, in a plan spanning several years that "was calculated, patient, and directed by the Russian Official."
The charges appear to be part of a wide-ranging Russian attempt to influence US politics ahead of the 2016 election. The efforts have included Russian intelligence officers' hacking of Democrats and a years-long social media campaign to influence American voters to favor presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to indictments filed by special counsel Robert Mueller. Over two dozen Russians have been charged. (Prosecutors have not provided any evidence of a direct link between Butina and the Trump campaign.)
OK, so she's the reason why Her Turn Hillary isn't president.
But what crime exactly did she commit?
The next day, FBI agents arrested Butina at her apartment and charged her with conspiracy and acting as a foreign agent in the US.
Poor girl. I think Trump should pardon her. :notsure:
