A Belarusian “sex trainer” who had claimed she could prove a Russian oligarch’s ties to the Trump campaign has been released from a Moscow jail, amid speculation that she may have cut a deal for her freedom. Anastasia Vashukevich, the escort and model who also calls herself Nastya Rybka, became an unlikely figure in the sprawling “Russiagate” saga after she offered to trade information about collusion with Russia in the 2016 US presidential elections for asylum in the United States. Before returning to Moscow last week, she had been held for nearly a year in a Thai prison for holding a sex workshop deemed illegal by the local authorities. She was deported from Thailand on Thursday after pleading guilty and was detained by Russian authorities “on suspicion of enticement to prostitution” when her flight arrived in Moscow.

A FLAMBOYANT brothel-owning Republican has won a seat in Nevada’s State Assembly – despite dying three weeks ago. Dennis Hof, a colourful character and legal pimp, secured 68.3 per cent of the vote in a landslide result which saw his rival, Democrat Lesia Romanov, trail well behind with a miserable 31.7 per cent.
