Anastasia Vashukevich, who goes by the alias Nastya Rybka on the internet, told CNN in a report published Tuesday that she made up the whole story as a means of getting out of a Thai prison last year.
Vashukevich was doing hard time in Thailand for offering her sex coach talents to the locals. Arrested and convicted for solicitation, she was sent to prison. Allegedly fearing for life behind bars, she decided to attract some international media attention with her story of having information that would link Trump to the Russian oligarchy
She asked for political asylum in the U.S. to tell her story. She eventually received deportation back to Russia.
It appears the whole ordeal was about publicity.
Russian security forces have advised the model and alleged escort to stop talking about her claims.
