Curiouser – Oleg’s ‘Sparrow’ Anastasia Vashukevich Arrested in Moscow….

Anastasia Vashukevich (27) is the Belarusian woman connected to Oleg Deripaska who was being held in a prison in Thailand under charges of recruiting women to act as prostitutes and escorts.  [Backstory]  Her name surfaced early in 2018 when CNN claimed she had dirt on Trump and “tapes” of some sort relating to Deripaska and his activities with contacts around the 2016 election.  [More Backstory]

While the outlandish aspects to the storyline pushed by initial media appeared ridiculous; there was something about Ms. Vashukevich’s connections to the larger Deripaska story that also appeared valid.  Ms. Vashukevich has been held in Thailand for almost a year.

Last week the Thai government agreed to release Ms. Vashukevich.  Today she was en route to Belarus when she was intercepted in Moscow:

A model from Belarus who claimed to have recordings shedding light on the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia was detained at a Moscow airport Thursday on prostitution allegations, the police said.

The model, Anastasia Vashukevich, had been deported from Thailand earlier in the day after spending nine months in prison on charges of conspiracy and soliciting prostitution.

She was booked to fly to Minsk, Belarus, but was detained along with three others traveling with her as she changed planes at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport, according to her husband and another person traveling with her.

No evidence has emerged of the tape that Vashukevich claimed showed contacts between Trump campaign officials and Russians. Her arrest in Moscow was unexpected and blocked her from possibly talking to dozens of journalists waiting for her in the airport’s arrivals zone. (read more)

As the larger story around Deripaska has unfolded, in hindsight we can connect some dots that may just explain what is going on.

Russian Billionaire Oleg Deripaska, a former business associate of Paul Manafort, is a central figure in the 2016 DOJ/FBI targeting of President Trump.

In September of 2016 the FBI approached Deripaska in New York and asked him to participate in the FBI operation now known as Crossfire Hurricane. {Go Deep}

Oleg laughed off the FBI request but through his lawyers and representatives maintained frequent contacts with FBI/DOJ officials, and some U.S. politicians.  His primary motive was/is his business interests.

Here’s what I think happened.

It now seems certain that Ms. Anastasia Vashukevich was with Oleg Deripaska around the time all of the 2016 activity was taking place.  That activity included calls and contacts from various people in U.S. government (FBI, DOJ and intelligence apparatus) and his own network of interests (Adam Waldman, Christopher Steele, etc).

Given the proximity and the timing, I believe Ms. Vashukevich likely did overhear some details of communications Deripaska was having about Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, the 2016 election, the FBI, and the aggregate IC effort to influence the 2016 election.  Did Anastasia actually gain recordings? Likely, NO.  However, did she likely hear conversations?  That’s a resounding YES.

Were Deripaska’s affiliates (lawyers etc), and Deripaska himself, likely recording conversations with U.S. intelligence people? Yes.  It would be silly not to given the history of the U.S. intelligence community burning their resources after usefulness is exhausted. [Deripaska himself experienced this] Keeping a record of conversations as an insurance policy therein is not a stretch.

When Vashukevich was arrested in Thailand; and especially when she tried to leverage her exit from her legal trouble through the claim of tapes etc; it’s likely Deripaska (and the U.S. intel community) viewed her incarceration as beneficial.  She couldn’t cause trouble. So Oleg left her in Bangkok. [If a Russian billionaire wanted to get a woman out of prison in Bangkok, it would not be difficult]

Keep in mind all of the 2016 fraudulent “Muh Russia” narrative creation was happening in the background and candidate Trump is oblivious to it.  FISA’s on Carter Page; intel operations again George Papadopoulos; running Five-Eyes spies (Tawil, Halper etc.) against the campaign; and the requests of Deripaska for assistance therein; all of it was happening in the background.  Ms. Vashukevich would only hear a flicker of it at the time.

Additionally, as we noted, the real risk to the corrupt DOJ and FBI officials was if any of this was exposed.  Some of it has come to light over the past two years.

Now, think about this…. Yes, with Oleg Deripaska in the picture there was indeed Russian meddling in the 2016 election; only, it wasn’t the type of meddling being sold by U.S. media….. The FBI/DOJ has approached Russian Deripaska to frame their Russian conspiracy narrative. It is almost a certainty that Deripaska, through an intermediary, was one of Chris Steele’s sources for the dossier.  [Steele previously worked for Deripaska.]

Now, put yourself in Deripaska’s shoes and think about what happens AFTER candidate Donald Trump surprisingly wins the 2016 election.  All of a sudden Deripaska the asset becomes a risk to the corrupt Scheme Team (DOJ/FBI et al); especially as the DOJ/FBI then execute the “insurance policy” effort against Donald Trump…. and eventually enlist Robert Mueller.

It is entirely possible for a Russian to be blackmailing someone, but it ain’t Trump vulnerable to blackmail; it’s the conspiracy crew within the DOJ, FBI, intelligence apparatus and even some significant politicians.  Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska now has blackmail material on Comey, McCabe and crew that he can leverage for his own business interests.

In 2017 Oleg Deripaska was represented in the U.S. by Adam Waldman.  Mr. Waldman was also representing Christopher Steele, the author of the Dossier.  Waldman was the liaison Senator Mark Warner (Vice-Chair Senate Intelligence Committee) was using to try and set up a secret meeting with Christopher Steele. {Text Messages}

Adam Waldman and Oleg Deripaska

As you can see from the text messages (more here), the House Intelligence Committee wanted to interview Deripaska.  However, based on their ongoing contact and relationship Deripaska’s lawyer, Adam Waldman, asks Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chair Mark Warner for feedback.

Oleg Deripaska was blocked from testifying to congress.  Now, it was obviously not from the HPSCI (Nunes Committee), but rather by the Senate Intel Committee, via Vice-Chair Senator Mark Warner.  Oh yes, THAT “no paper trail” senator, Mark Warner, again.

This, all of this, is the stuff happening at the time Ms. Anastasia Vashukevich is traveling with Oleg Deripaska.

What becomes clear from all of this is that Anastasia Vashukevich was positioned as a Red Sparrow; a recruiting agent for prostitutes and escort workers – under the employ of Oleg Deripaska, likely using the sex trade as Russian trade-craft.

Anastasia Vashukevich was busted in Thailand for her recruiting efforts, as outlined in the media report.  Ms. Vashukevich tried to extricate herself from the trouble by leveraging her knowledge of the communication between Deripaska and Christopher Steele to the media.

It is entirely possible Ms. Vashukevich knew of recordings of Oleg Deripaska telling Steele, directly or through intermediaries, the ridiculous Trump-Russian-Hookers story; and she  was trying to leverage knowledge of those “tapes” as an exit from the Bangkok prison….. Which, given the current situation and collapsing narrative, would be embarrassing to multiple interests…. including U.S. officials…. who along with Deripaska would not want that to become public.

Now does Anastasia Vashukevich arrest in Moscow make sense?

Now does it make sense why the Washington Post, specifically The Washington Post, would be quick to frame the narrative?

[…]  Soon after her apparent connection to Deripaska came to light, Vashukevich and several Russians were arrested while conducting what she described as a sex training seminar for Russian tourists in the Thai resort town of Pattaya. In jail, she pleaded for U.S. help, saying she had recordings revealing ties between Russia and Donald Trump. (link)

        It was only when the story went viral and the UNHCR intervened and an Australian reporter Sophie Mc Neill locked herself in the room with Haraf that the Thais backed off.

        They were banging on her door and yelling at her to come out.But McNeill was tweeting as was Harif and it went all over the world.

        And remember the Thais sent another saudi girl back who ran away and she hasnt been seen or heard of since

      Steele was making stuff up and simply named Oleg and others as sources. Nobody was gonna check Steele’s sources, so just make it up. Oleg did not care as Hillary was supposed to win. He gets some brownie points from the new HRC administration for helping Steele and Oleg gets his business sanctions lifted. He was betting on Hillary. Now Trump wins and Oleg and his businesses are screwed,.He also gets in trouble with Putin for damaging US relations with due to the Muh Russia situation. Putin waits a bit because he is not sure Trump is gonna survive the CIA/HRC setup. Putin now knows that Trump will be around for a while and Putin needs to clean this mess up. Oleg needs to clean this mess up. Oleg needs to come clean about playing on team Hillary with the CIA FBI. Oleg starts cozying up to Solomon to get the real story out there. MSM keeps trying to link Oleg to Trump Muh Russia, Oleg and Waldman need to break down that narrative.

              She was one author. The others may have been Glenn Simpson and Edward Baumgartner. Yaacov Apelbaum’s The Mechanics of Deception is an extraordinary analysis of how the dossier came into being. His thesis is that the source material for the dossier existed in a database long before PDT was the nominee, and that the Hakylut-Fusion GPS group has been operating as a semiofficial spy network for years. That’s what the 702 queries were all about. Actually producing the dossier was just a matter of the 3 principal authors putting it on paper and having Steele dress it up to look like a Russian product.

    • It makes much more sense to me that Obama himself, and/or his Muslim guides (Jarrett, Brennan) made up the “golden showers” episode:

      for example:

      “… You should also understand that the ‘golden shower’ anal-retentive tale in the Steele dossier starred Obama, not Hillary, as the victim of the evil Trump; that is Obama’s mark, his personal desire to be the center of attention, as the one whose name is elevated in the story, by being the unknowing victim of Trump’s ‘magical’ revenge (a revenge obviously only in the evil Trump’s own mind — an inward, cowardly revenge, characteristic of Obama but NOT the supremely outward and fearless Trump), and thus the hero of the piece when the dossier is used to ‘get’ Trump, and especially when it is brought to light before a naive and easily led public.”

      Psychologically, the “golden showers” fake story is indicative of Obama (the taqiyya-ing schmutz) personally, and also of some Muslim imitating what he/she learned from studying old-time Soviet thug spies (pre-1960, and James Bond), as to what gullible Westerners would swallow hook, line and sinker. (Anybody taking that story seriously is anal-retentive, which means stunted, never-grown-up, sexually OR politically.)

    So, is Putin mad at Trump or mad at the Dems/Clinton/Obama mob?

    I’m thinking that Putin might try to expose the FAKE MSM/Obama/Clinton/FBI/DOJ corruption. Maybe by leaking info that shows how corrupt Obama/Clinton/MSM is.

    I think Putin wants to have better relationship with USA, and it’s the Dems/Corrupt obama fbi/doj that is stopping it happening.

    Putin would have to back door the info he gets … to “help” Trump take out the crooks in our government.

    If Putin did that, I think Trump would be grateful. 🙂

      • Putin is smarter than both Obama and Clinton. Both of those two primarily used blackmail, mob force and enabling terrorists and dangerous enemies to move upward, while Putin learned his craft and did indeed put a lot of effort into his rise. Obama and Clinton, taken out of their fishbowl and put on a survival trail, would perish in a couple of days.

I don’t think that that would have happened under Obama or Clinton. He has made it very clear that the avenue back from the invasive technology of the tech globalists is already very much a reality and that part of their animus towards Trump is that it is literally only a matter of time until so much unfolds and a means of regaining our privacy is exposed…and with that, there will be a rush to save themselves by these cretins.

        • I meant “Alex” partied with Oleg and/or Soros, but upon further thought there is every bit as much of a likelihood that Ryan and McStain could have hobnobbed with her too…and recent articles suggest that Romney’s reason for being such a benedict arnold is because he is needful, nay addicted, to attending such parties as these. the nice guy Mormon image is withering fast.

    All related. All connected. All the same players.

      • If I may help you….when you are a brainwashed liberal there is almost no access to any narrative but the one shoved at you 24/7. As with Islam, even considering departing from this narrative can elicit severe reprobation, intimidation and fear. You don’t realize all of that until you happen to tread off the imposed path – sometimes accidentally – and find yourself reproached, ostracized and even labeled a traitor for the other side, simply by one simple act of curiosity.

        If you have any backbone at all, that curiosity will lead you to actually look at content from the ‘opposition’ and a small particle of your brain, that can analyze independently and use common sense, can begin to compare what you have heard and never questioned, with reality that is based upon substantive evidence – evidence that is never supplied by the left because their methods of immersion and intimidation and dumbing you down and numbing your curiosity (by the way, drugs, be they marijuana or opiates, are unquestionably an invaluable tool in their transforming thinking people into zombie sheep) are so effective.

        The sexual revolution gave us not only a zealous need to be forever young, but it also imposed the necessity of being sexy forever, lest you be deemed not, and thus rendered irrelevant and pathetic.

        Sex as a basis for one’s worth has gotten us so much of the ‘identity’ disorder and it has also left us with people who whether they are 15 or 70, think about the ‘clique’ accepting them. Peer acceptance that previous generations outgrew once they began the maturation process that naturally led to self-reliance, developing one’s family (the ‘first society’ in a healthy situation that is more important than belonging to a clique or to the state) and becoming a productive bulwark of the community, a mentor for the up and coming next generations.

        Sanders is part of the ‘soft bigotry’ of low expectations AND part of the ‘nouveau riche’, both of whom discount the ingenuity and courage that made America the opportunity for everyone.

        These people have, using education as a tool, omitted much of our history of the last two centuries, playing down our every day heroes AND the ‘poor’ and UNaborted who became the success stories, despite the supposed disadvantage of economic hardship….completely hiding the Judeo Christian basis that taught that adversity and necessity were in fact the mother of invention.

        Complacency is what kills people and all of the ‘me first’ ism has done just that.

        And no better proof of that is there than our rich politicians and lobbyists with no accountability and our ‘poor’ and entitled who assume handouts are their right.

        Putin at least understands the dangers of that mentality. I don’t think career politicians use their brains to think that deeply.

    And the thot plickens…….

    Of course the very young Anastasia would name drop using “Trump” instead of anyone in the soft coup most likely because she doesn’t rteally know who they all are.

    Who’s name does she hear in the international media every day? Who’s is the biggest name that a relatively unknown hooker can drop to try and get attention from her jail cell in Thailand?

    It certainly would not be Mark Warner, or Christopher Steele or any of those conspirators. Why not? Because none of their names are plastered across al of the newspapers every day in every country.

    So the WaPoop is just spreading more of it’s usual manure. Just because Vashukevich name-drops DJT’s name doesn’t mean diddly squat as to his involvement with her or any Russian hookers. She’s trying to get international attention from a dangerous secluded Thai jail cell.

    “On her Instagram account, Rybka posted photos and videos showing her and Deripaska together on his yacht. One, posted in August 2016, features Deripaska standing on his yacht and speaking with Sergei Prikhodko, a deputy prime minister and top foreign policy advisor. Deripaska can be heard addressing Prikhodko by his first and middle names — a common form of address.

    Navalny also said his investigators found public records that said Prikhodko spent several days on Deripaska’s yacht and was flown there on Deripaska’s private jet.

    In another video, Deripaska can be heard explaining why relations between the United States and Russia are so tense, something he appears to attribute in part to a former official who used to oversee Russia relations at the State Department and who worked on a Soviet whaling trawler years ago.

    In his report, Navalny goes on to claim that Prikhodko’s sojourn on Deripaska’s yacht effectively amounted to a bribe from the oligarch. He also listed the deputy prime minister’s hugely valuable property holdings in and around Moscow.”

    Exposing Prikhodko as well – wonder if Anastasia Vashukevich aka Rybka now considers that was a smart move on her behalf…

          • I am sorry to be politically incorrect but I always have a hard time NOT looking at the reality of these women who will put out for money and for influence with people they may not like, but then can cry rape as if it is on the same level as women who never in their life gave out sex to strangers or people they disliked.

            I find it very odd to use this particular person for reference, but there almost is a different level of ‘rape’ for women who have selectively prostituted themselves based upon an elitist attitude, discounting some people as unworthy of sampling their wares, while others can sample with impunity because they are ‘better’.

    I see this from a different angle.
    Weve been led to believe that Derapaska is the link between the Trump campaign and Vlad.
    I believe Derapaska was a CIA asset and answered to Brennan, 5 eyes and the various IC entities involved in the counter intelligence opo against the President.
    The DOJ/FBI had their own opo the”Insurance policy ”
    The competition and petty rifts between the alphabet law enforcement agencies is legend.
    Then ad in the personalities involved and their self importance. They were rushed into the insurance policy; by Trumps unexpected victory. They got sloppy.

    • Absolutely. Deripaska is all over Spygate and many other stories. An in-depth look at him alone would likely tie up these stories (Uranium 1?) nicely.
      Remember that the Dems were supposedly upset about Russia invading Urkrian–why, oh, because “democracy”. I think not.
      Recent stories have noted how much money was at stake–specifically the beef that Deripaska had against Paul Manafort in a business deal when he lost $18.7MM+. If Deripaska is CIA or associated CIA, he could easily have influenced Mueller et al to go hard after Manafort, rather than Podesta who also was lobbying heavily as an unregistered FA. Plus, as SD notes above, they owed Deripaska for his help in bankrolling the release of our asset in the ME.

      TY SD for posting this. When I get a break I will try to unearth some of my research on Deripaska as I suspect he is the spider at the center of at least one of the webs of Spygate/muh Russia.

      And as an aside, what a creepy leering guy he is…

    Seems like a good time to resurrect an old conspiracy theory from back in August.

    Anyone remember that photo Ziggy found of Oleg’s red sparrow with a bunch of other girls? There was one that looked an awful lot like Papa D’s Simona.

    I put together an animated morph of her with Simona and the results are pretty compelling that it’s the same person. You can check it out here:

    I found another photo of what looks to be this same girl with Belurus pimp/writer/sex guru Alex Lesley (aka Alexander Kirillov) who is the red sparrow’s handler and associated with Deripaska. I found this in google images, it looks likes Lesley’s Deskgram account has been made private or deleted.

    I made another animated morph showing this girl with a different photo of Simona in a similar pose, again the results look pretty compelling to me. See it here:

    I don’t know what to think of this now. Papa D and Simona seem to be the good guys these days but Oleg is in this thing up to his eyeballs and nothing would surprise me at this point.

    It is even more insightful to ask, “How does the big ugly calculus change if the horse trading is extrapolated to pure political considerations?”

    I don’t believe one can sense the movements within the larger dynamic here without understanding a basic outline of what happened immediately following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the rise of the oligarchs, and the loyalties of those oligarchs. Who was/is close to Putin, who became enemies of Putin and why, and how does Deripaska stand apart from the others? You have to tread very gingerly here. Look into it and you will see why. I’m not touching it. Extended into the global scheme then, where do the US and Brit IC’s loyalties and interests go? (hint: they weren’t working for us)

    I suspect the IC attempts to draw in Deripaska were not for the purpose of extracting information from him, but with the intention of drawing him into the mix and then burning him along with Trump. My gut tells me Deripaska immediately sniffed that out and fed them dog food, leaving them with nothing to burn either him OR Trump on. That doesn’t make him Trump’s friend, enemy, ally, or anything else. Just slippery. Hey, he didn’t become a Russian billionaire from chopping wood.

    He left the bimbo to rot in jail because she turned on her boss and was trying to sell something she heard, or thought she heard, or just made up that she heard, and could no longer be trusted. Maybe she can get a guest spot on Omarosa’s new TV show. They should have a lot to talk about.

    Bingo! Brilliant!
    By the way, Trump recently announced he may place more sanctions on Russia.
    Just before saying so, Trump had a phone conversation with Putin followed by a flurry of questions from Congress and the MSM asking if the content of the call had been disclosed. It was confirmed without elaboration, yes, content of the conversation had been properly disclosed, but not to Congress nor the MSM. No reference was made to topics discussed. Hmmm?

    I thought, too quickly, the open anxiety was more legalism by the left, jumping at Trump, to catch Trump missing a legal step involving Russia and embarrass him.
    I expected the MSM to demand a transcript and Congress to demand access. So I noticed the silence fell fast following the one sentence assurrance that protocol had been met by Trump.

    If SD is correct; the anxiety that surfaced was an exposure of the fears of Warner and everyone anti Trump mentioned above. If they could intercept the content of the Trump – Putin call by demanding Trump turn the transcript over to Warner it would be a singular opportunity to get inside Trump and set their word parsing traps. Trump had already turned it over. But not to Warner and no hints of what was discussed were released. Now the almost curt response to the flurry of anxiety, and the noticeable *end of discussion* silence makes sense.

    Trump spoke with Putin before announcing his intention to impose more sanctions. Is Trump using the sanctions as leverage to move Putin to deliver the *Red Sparrow’s* information to the White House? Suddenly she’s released, routed through Moscow; for interception? Did Putin arrange the release? The route? Did he have her delivered to the Kremlin to get the information Trump wants?

    It fits. Like a James Bond book. The same reason she was left in prison is the same reason she is released. Of all the players, in two powerful governments, nobody but Putin could have gotten this woman out of a prison on one side of the world and into his prison. On the same day. And perhaps for the only reason that makes sense; because the price was right. Is it true; the only way out of that prison is with lots of money? Her husband didn’t have enough to get her out. Who would? That leaves three interested parties. Deripaska, as SD points out, loses if he buys her freedom. Trump never spends money when he doesn’t have to. Putin saves tens of millions of dollars if he sends the money, arranges her travel and pays for the flights of three to Belarus including a long stopover in Moscow. He has a buyer for her information; the currency is fewer sanctions. No money changes hands and there’s no political risk to the Buyer. If she knows what she claims, Putin can protect her to insure the information and he has access to Deripaska .

    Everybody wins! Trump gets his evidence when Putin collects the recordings, Putin saves Russia from more sanctions and *Red Sparrow* gets out of jail free. Very Trump!

    One more thing. Confirming he did speak with Putin, Trump added he would be speaking to Putin again. That’s a plan. No mention of topics they will discuss.

    Unless bigger powers WANTED her in the prison, where she’d be safe until her “services” would be required presently. It is possible that Russia kept her there until now. She has suddenly become a valuable pawn, not the least of which is to hook Deripaska with. Maybe this is part of the plan where Putin’s role in resolving the Mueller instantiated investigation comes to a head.

    One can only hope.


  40. TomA says:

    Deripaska has been playing both sides of street and keeping his options open while waiting to see how the whole Russiagate fiasco pans out. If the Deep State wins through continued coverup, then he maintains his leverage via the blackmail evidence he possesses. If Trump wins (via Barr as AG) and exposes the Deep State treachery, then Deripaska will negotiate some advantage in exchange for becoming a star witness against the coup conspirators. He is walking a fine (and dangerous) line. Deripaska does not want Ms. Vashukevich to inadvertently interfere in how he plays his hand.

    Warner is sweating bullets because he is implicated in one of the recordings.


  41. Leane Kamari says:

    Now does it make sense that the Deripaska companies came just the other day to be taken off the sanctions list against the votes of the democrats but with the votes of the republican party? Deripaska had to divest his majority in some steel/aluminium firms (still holds a large chunk) and then I think last week the Senate voted to take his name of the sanction list AGAINST the votes of the Democrats! Why would the Dems head to Bruessels just now?
    Possibly Deripaska came clean with some DOJ Huber of some sort? And Moscow now jails the “lady”

    Despite the shutdown the DOJ managed to post this about FARA and Manafort.

    The hits just keep coming. FARA? Really……Ukraine is a hot topic, still.

    But this really isn’t a new story, 2015….. I found this story, has a history right here:

    The SEC also filed a separate civil complaint, charging Ieremenko and a wider group of nine defendants — including companies in Hong Kong and Belize and individuals in the U.S., Russia, and South Korea — of earning more than $4.1 million as result of the hacking.

    Some of the same people are also listed in a 2015 SEC complaint involving the hacking of news releases before their publication and making $30 million in illicit trading profits

    U.S. Brings Multiple Charges over 2016 SEC Data Hack

    “For decades, the defendants, employees and a client of global law firm Mossack Fonseca allegedly shuffled millions of dollars through offshore accounts and created shell companies to hide fortunes. In fact, as alleged, they had a playbook to repatriate un-taxed money into the U.S. banking system. Now, their international tax scheme is over, and these defendants face years in prison for their crimes.”

    The announcement of the criminal charges came after the prior week’s news that German authorities had raided the offices of Deutsche Bank in an investigation related to the leaks of the Panama papers.

    Okay, Ukraine, the SEC, The Small Circle, Hillary Clinton, John Podesta….what do these all have in common??

    Right here:

    Peter Strzok’s “insurance policy” is his wife, SEC Director Melissa Hodgman, who has blocked the FBI’s probe of the Clinton Foundation for 21 months and counting

    Meanwhile Jeff CPA, The Markets Work is spot on the story:

    On Dec. 5, 2018, The Associated Press reported that prosecutors were ramping up their investigation of the Podesta Group and Mercury Public Affairs. Both firms were accused of FARA violations resulting from the special counsel’s probe into former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

    Mueller had previously referred both cases to the Southern District of New York as they fell outside of the scope of his investigation, but news regarding both cases has become limited in recent months.
