We may end up seeing the pee-pee tapes after all…
On Thursday, CNN reported,
“A self-described Russian “seductress” is asking for US help to escape a Thai detention center in exchange for information on alleged links between US President Donald Trump and Russia, according to her Instagram account.”
“Anastasia Vashukevich, who also goes by the name Nastya Rybka, says she’s being held in Thailand after being arrested on February 26, along with nine other Russians, in the city of Pattaya for running so-called “sex training” sessions. Rybka has said she’s from Belarus but entered Thailand on a Russian passport, a Thai immigration official told CNN.”
While she was in a vehicle on her way to prison, Rybka recorded a short video pleading with American journalists to help her. In the video, which she posted on her Instagram page, Rubka said,
“I’m ready to give you all the missing puzzle pieces, support them with videos and audios, regarding the connections of our respected lawmakers with Trump, Manafort and the rest. I know a lot. I’m waiting for your offers and I’m waiting for you in a Thai prison.”
In recent weeks, Rybka has been in the news because Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny published an investigation on his website which delves into her connections with some of the richest and most powerful men in Russia. Rybka also has published a diary titled, “How to Seduce a Billionaire.”
Navalny posted a video from Rybka’s social media, showing her on a yacht trip in August of 2016 with Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska and Deputy Prime Minister Sergey Prikhodko.
“Navalny said the two men could be heard in the video discussing Russia’s poor relationship with the United States. Navalny suggested Deripaska and Prikhodko may have served as a link between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.”
Deripaska is one of the Russians who worked with Paul Manafort. The Washington Post reported last year that Manafort offered Deripaska “private briefings” about what was going on in the Trump campaign. A spokesman for the Russian billionaire told CNN that Deripaska “never received any communication about it.”
“In a statement provided to CNN, his spokesperson said he was suing Rybka and her business partner because they “maliciously made his private photos and personal information public. If someone sneaked onto your house and then published photos from it you would do the same. This information was then used by Mr. Navalny as bait to drum up the interest of an audience, and make up a story far from any truth.””
Rybka says that she was arrested in Thailand because the Russian government ordered it. She believes that Putin wanted her arrested because of the video she posted with Deripaska.
“If we go back to Russia we will die in Russian’s [sic] prison or they will kill us,” a post on Rybka’s Instagram account said. “This is very serious. … Please USA help us not to die from Russians!”
I don’t know if this Russian seductress really has the goods on Trump or if she’s just talking shit because she’s desperate to get out of jail. But either way, it brings the Trump pee-pee tape back into the realm of possibilities.
