NYT: Senate Testimony Suggests That Trump “Hooked Up” With Miss Moscow
The Senate Intelligence Committee’s Russia report released last month says that President Donald Trump may have been romantically involved with a Russian beauty pageant winner in the 1990s, according to The New York Times.
- “A Trump associate, Robert Curran, who was interviewed by the Senate investigators, said he believed Mr. Trump may have had a romantic relationship with” a woman who was a former Miss Moscow, The Times reported.
- The newspaper noted that Trump was married to Marla Maples at the time.
- “On the same trip, another Trump associate, Leon D. Black, told investigators that he and Mr. Trump ‘might have been in a strip club together,’” according to The Times, and “Another witness said that Mr. Trump may have been with other women in Moscow and later brought them along to a meeting with the mayor.”
- Curran, “an American photographer whose work hung in Mr. Trump’s SoHo hotel,” also spoke with another Trump associate about the possible Miss Moscow relationship after Trump’s inauguration.
The report also said that a Trump associate, David Geovanis, an American businessman based in Russia who was in Moscow for the 1996 visit, continued to discuss Mr. Trump’s relationship with the former Miss Moscow after the president’s inauguration in 2017. According to the committee report, Mr. Curran, the photographer and a friend of Mr. Geovanis, told Senate investigators that he had asked Mr. Geovanis, “What exactly happened … did they hook up, or whatever?’’
Mr. Geovanis responded, Mr. Curran told the investigators, with “Yeah, well, I saw them again the next day and they were together, so.”
