PHOTO OF TRUMP KIDS WITH ALLEGED RUSSIAN SPY SURFACES

Internet sleuth Scott Dworkin released an alleged photo of the older Trump children allegedly taken in Russia. Mr. Dworkin credits Pace Lattin.

In the photo, a younger Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Trump allegedly appear with people in a nondescript parking lot. A sign in the photo’s far left appears to employ Cyrillic script, which could be evidence of the photo’s location being in a Slavic language speaking area.

Mr. Lattin gives further explanation of the photograph at his website ania.com. According to Mr. Lattin, the woman to Ivanka Trump’s left is allegedly Elena A. Baronoff.

Ms. Baranoff was the VP of Customer Relations at Trump Grande. She helped secure money from Russia’s elite into Trump’s building projects according to Reuters.

Prior to her work for Mr. Trump, Ms. Baranoff was “Cultural Attaché in Public Diplomacy for the Russian Government,” (on her Linkedin account, she cites this experience). This title implies that was she was likely a Russian spy, though this cannot be verified.

Here is a photo of Ms. Baronoff with former General Secretary of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev. Ms. Baranoff passed away in 2014.

Eric Trump reportedly bragged about visiting Russia and having access to Russian money in an interview with Golf reporter James Dodson in 2014:

“So when I got in the cart with Eric,” Dodson says, “as we were setting off, I said, ‘Eric, who’s funding? I know no banks—because of the recession, the Great Recession—have touched a golf course. You know, no one’s funding any kind of golf construction. It’s dead in the water the last four or five years.’ And this is what he said. He said, ‘Well, we don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.’ I said, ‘Really?’ And he said, ‘Oh, yeah. We’ve got some guys that really, really love golf, and they’re really invested in our programs. We just go there all the time.’ Now that was three years ago, so it was pretty interesting.”

Mr. Trump claimed the reporter was lying after the interview was publicized.
