Russian woman retracts Trump collusion claim

Legal InsurrectionAlleged prostitute Anastasia Vashukevich, also known as Nastya Rybka,was detained last year in Thailand on charges related to soliciting for sex and conspiracy to solicit. At the time of her arrest and subsequent plea, she claimed to have video and audio tape evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 U. S. presidential election.

She has now retracted that claim and apologized for making a false claim. It’s not clear why she initially made this claim, but reports suggest that she was trying to leverage this purported “evidence” into a lesser charge/sentence.

Interesting, she retracted it after she was extradicted to Russia at a Russian court hearing of some kind. She had claimed to have "tapes" of conversations linking Trump to Deripaska.

But it's known that the FBI talked to Desipaska too. They wanted him to say (or rather, agree with to support their dossier, I think) that Trump colluded with Russia. It appears from more recent accounts that he refused to do that.

It occurs to me that putting her into a Russian prison after retracting her story is a great way to keep her from talking about whatever she may have overheard about the FBI trying to frame Trump for colluding with Russians.
