Ukrainian immigrant linked to organized crime conned her way into Trump’s inner circle

by Brady Knox, Breaking News Reporter Washington Examiner

A Russian-speaking Ukrainian immigrant and fraudster linked to organized crime posed as a Rothschild to gain close access to Donald Trump’s inner circle, even posing for a picture at Mar-a-Lago with the former president, according to an investigation.

Inna Yashchyshyn spent many years as a con artist under her given name before convincingly posing as a Rothschild to gain access to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence several times, an investigation by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project found. The two outlets were given access to numerous documents obtained by the FBI as part of an investigation into Yashchyshyn’s extensive criminal activity. The discovery raises further scrutiny of Mar-a-Lago’s security, already in the national spotlight following the FBI’s dramatic raid earlier this month.
