Dmitry Rybolovlev is suddenly back in the U.S., and he's once again near a Donald Trump event

Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev has a habit of flying in on his private plane to the same cities that Donald Trump just happens to be visiting at the time. Rybolovlev insists it’s all coincidence, and that he doesn’t even know Trump, even though he once bought a Florida house from Trump for around twice what it was worth. Now one of those “coincidences” is playing out once again.
Dmitry Rybolovlev’s private plane can be tracked fairly easily by following its flight plans on a site such as FlightRadar24 (link). Of late his plane has largely been bouncing around Europe. But his flight on April 26th, which was supposed to be from Nice, France, to London, England, is now listed as having been “diverted” to Newark, New Jersey. So what’s in Newark? For one thing, its airport is used as a sort of third arrival point for New York City. So where is Trump headed to this weekend?
Trump is about to hold a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on Saturday, April 29th (link). Newark and Harrisburg are around 160 miles apart, or about a two and a half hour trip by car. Considering that Dmitry Rybolovlev once flew into Miami while Trump was in West Palm Beach, there would seem to be precedent for Rybolovlev arriving a couple hours away from Trump’s location in order not to arouse suspicion. Again, Rybolovlev insists that he’s never flown anywhere for the purpose of meeting Trump, and that these are coincidences. But there is a major upcoming litmus test for this.
One week from now, Donald Trump will be returning to New York City for the first time since taking office (link). As Palmer Report has previously noted, Trump has seemed to be afraid to set foot in his home city (link), but now he’s finally venturing home. So here’s what to watch for. Will Dmitry Rybolovlev’s plane still be in Newark by the time Trump arrives in Harrisburg this Saturday? And perhaps more importantly, will Rybolovlev’s plane still be around the corner from New York City next week when Trump arrives in Manhattan? We’ll be watching closely. Contribute to Palmer Report

Second report says Donald Trump and advisers caught on tape plotting treasonous deal with Russia

1 Share
Eleven days ago an intel community source asserted that there’s a recording of Donald Trump pitching a treasonous election rigging deal to Russia, and that three of his advisers were secretly surveilled discussing the plan. Now comes another intel community source report asserting the same thing, and lending credence to the first report.
The first word of this came on April 16th, when an intel community source told former British Parliament member Louise Mensch that Carter Page had been sent to Moscow with the tape of Trump in order to strike the deal with the Russians (link). Now comes another source, this time through Claude Taylor from the Bill Clinton administration, asserting that the Trump recording lays out the details of a deal involving “hacking for removing sanctions” and that the U.S. intelligence community has a copy of the recording (link). If this proves to be accurate, then Trump and his advisers will have little chance of explaining away their actions. Even if the DOJ initially refuses to prosecute anyone involved, the intel community could simply leak the tape, proving the guilt of all involved, and motivating the majority of Americans to put intense political pressure on Congress to impeach Trump.
Not every expert political pundit sees the report as plausible. For instance Seth Abramson shared his view today: “Is Don Trump stupid enough to entirely unnecessarily organize his quid pro quo in this way? Sure. Do I think he did? Absolutely not, no” (link). That said, with a second source now separately making the same assertion, this lends significant credibility of the initial report.
As to why Donald Trump and his advisers would do something as sloppy as incriminating themselves on tape, as Palmer Report has previously pointed out (link), no one involved truly believed Trump could win anyway – and thus they didn’t see a particular need to cover their tracks as they went. Contribute to Palmer Report
