A senior Trump administration official has sparked concerns over a plan to waive sanctions against extremist Russian politician Dmitry Rogozin to allow him to visit the US. Politico reports that Jim Bridenstine, a former Republican lawmaker appointed by Trump to head NASA, has extended an invite to Vladimir Putin’s former Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin to visit the space agency in Houston, Texas. Rogozin, who was Deputy Prime Minister of Russia from 2011 until May 2018, has an extreme record of attacking LGBT+ rights. Serving during the period in which Putin signed the country’s controversial gay propaganda law, Rogozin frequently used social media to stoke hatred towards LGBT+ people in Russia.
