Nude selfie has turned up in probe of Trump and Russians


Is this the photo in question?

❝ A Russian company accused of bankrolling efforts to disrupt the 2016 presidential campaign says that a “nude selfie” is among the materials collected by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III in his ongoing probe…

Concord is owned by Yevgeniy Prigozhin, a Russian businessman known as “Putin’s chef” because of his close relationship to Russian President Vladimir Putin…

Concord is the sole defendant to appear in court in the indictment of Russian entities under Mueller.

So far…

    Rachel Maddow reports on revelations in Russian media that a U.S. case against a Russian living in North Carolina, Leonid Teyf, for money laundering and murder-for-hire, is connected to one of 13 Russians indicted by Robert Mueller, Yevgeny Prigozhin, whose case has taken a twist of its own. https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow/watch/surprise-twist-puts-murder-for-hire-case-in-mueller-orbit-1421678147908

    • The Supreme Court decided yesterday that it has no interest in hearing the appeal from the mystery foreign government-owned company that’s been trying to dodge an evidence subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. This essentially means that Mueller has won the battle once and for all, as there is no higher court for the company to appeal to. We’ve also learned a lot more today about the company’s identity. https://www.palmerreport.com/analysis/identity-mystery-company-mueller-more/15183/

    • Veselnitskaya, Russian in Trump Tower Meeting, Is Charged in Case That Shows Kremlin Ties https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/08/nyregion/trump-tower-natalya-veselnitskaya-indictment.html The new indictment again raised questions about whom Ms. Veselnitskaya was representing when she met with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort and others at Trump Tower in Manhattan. That meeting is one focus of the investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia’s covert operation to sway the presidential race. It was organized after an intermediary promised that Ms. Veselnitskaya would deliver documents that would incriminate Hillary Clinton.

      “Mnuchin Defends Plan to Lift Sanctions on Russian Oligarch’s Companies” (NYT 1/10/19) https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/10/us/politics/mnuchin-russia-sanctions.html
      “Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California called the presentation “one of the worst classified briefings we’ve received from the Trump administration” and accused Mr. Mnuchin of “wasting the time” of Congress. She said Mr. Mnuchin was unresponsive to important questions.
      Representative Brad Sherman, another California Democrat, said he opposed easing the sanctions because it would only increase the wealth of Mr. Deripaska. He said Mr. Mnuchin had no response to that argument except that lawmakers should trust the administration.”
      Oleg Deripaska has deep connections to Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman. Deripaska invested $18.9 million into a Ukrainian telecom venture ran by Manafort, but was never paid back. Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly investigated the links between the two men as part of his probe into Russia’s electoral interference.

    Rachel Maddow revisits the story of Belarusian ‘model’ Anastasia Vashukevich, whose apparently accidental exposure of oligarch Oleg Deripaska’s role in the 2016 U.S. presidential election has been met with legal pressure and personal peril as questions linger about the existence of further evidence.
