Newly Obtained Flight Records Contradict Trump’s ‘Pee Tape’ Alibi: Report

Published

on

Well, it turns out, President Donald Trump’s “pee tape” alibi to James Comey doesn’t hold up against flight records either, according to a new report published by Bloomberg.

The ‘pee tape’ allegation surrounding the President of the United States may sound absurd. But it’s been getting some serious scrutiny, thanks to recently reported conversations between Trump and his former FBI director James Comey.

According to Comey’s memos of his private conversations with the president last year, Trump claimed he couldn’t have been filmed in a hotel room watching what Trump called “golden showers thing” because he arrived early in the morning on the day of the pageant, and left shortly after it finished.

But that claim isn’t holding up to publicly available information. And on Monday, Bloomberg News revealed the most recent wrinkle: Flight records indicate that Trump arrived in Moscow on Friday and stayed through Sunday morning.

As reported by The New York Times, Trump borrowed his friend and business partner Phil Ruffin’s Global 5000 private jet for the trip to Moscow.

According to Bloomberg, which bought the flight records from an aviation data company called FlightAware, Ruffin’s jet flew from Las Vegas to Asheville, North Carolina on Nov. 6, 2013.

The next day —Thursday, Nov. 7, 2013 — Trump was widely seen attending a birthday tribute to the evangelist Billy Graham in Asheville. Later that same evening, Ruffin’s jet took off from Asheville bound for Moscow’s Vnukovo International Airport. The Bombardier jet landed in Moscow on Friday, Nov. 8, at a time unspecified in the records, according to Bloomberg.

And social media posts still up on Facebook and Instagram line up with the flight’s records.

Moscow’s swanky Nobu Moscow posted a picture of him on Facebook on Friday, Nov 8, taken outside in daylight. In that picture, Trump poses alongside Emin Agalarov, the young pop star from Azerbaijan who helped Trump bring the beauty pageant to Moscow. Emin, on his own Instagram, posted the same picture that Friday.

The beauty pageant itself was held Saturday, and Trump reportedly told Comey he left shortly after it concluded.

According to flight records, however, Ruffin’s airplane took off from Vnukovo airport at 3:58 a.m. Moscow time on Sunday a.m. The jet touched down at Newark Liberty International Airport, just outside New York City, on Sunday morning at 4:11 a.m. local time, according to the flight records.

Someone is lying and it appears to be Trump.

Trump Spent Memorial Day Tweeting About Golf, Comparing Himself To Obama And Threatening a Democratic Governor

Published

President Donald Trump spent most of the Memorial Day on Twitter defending himself from charges that he was golfing as the U.S. neared the horrific 100,000 coronavirus death milestone.

Trump, who frequently attacked then-president Barack Obama for golfing, has spent more than $130 million in taxpayers’ money on golfing trips. And he couldn’t take the heat after the campaign of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden released an ad pointing out his golfing trip as the COVID-19 death toll mounts.

On Sunday, he responded to the ad, comparing himself (favorably, of course) to Obama:

On Monday, Memorial Day, he jumped on Twitter again, this time blaming the “truly deranged” media for supposedly elevating the story. “[Obama] also played moments after the brutal killing by ISIS of a wonderful young man,” Trump said. “Totally inappropriate – and it was me who shattered 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. I was left a MESS!”

Trump also threatened to pull the Republican National Convention from Charlotte, citing North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper’s “shutdown mood” and noncommitment to saying whether or not a convention for tens of thousands of people in the state’s largest city will be able to take place in August.

Aside from defending his hobbies, Trump’s Memorial Day weekend of tweeting included retweeting several posts by a former congressional candidate with a history of making racist and sexist remarks about black women.
