Left salivates over timely report claiming a spy posing as a Rothschild was milling around Mar-a-Lago

The media is rolling out yet another story intended to showcase just how inept Donald Trump is, this time allegedly being duped by a fake heiress who was supposedly granted access to his inner sanctum at Mar-a-Lago.

At the center of the latest sensational Trump story is a woman known as Anna de Rothschild, who allegedly boasted of family roots in the European banking dynasty to open doors among the rich and famous. Included among those doors is Mar-a-Lago, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and now some on the left are suggesting that she may very well be the supposed “insider” who tipped the FBI off, resulting in the unprecedented raid on the home of the former president.

The newspaper cited a “pivotal moment” last year when she “was invited to Mar-a-Lago, where she mingled with former President Donald Trump’s supporters and showed up the next day for a golf outing with Mr. Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham among other political luminaries.”

“A year before the FBI’s spectacular raid of the former president’s seaside home, the woman whose real name is Inna Yashchyshyn, a Russian-speaking immigrant from Ukraine, made several trips into the estate posing as a member of the famous family while making inroads with some of the former president’s key supporters,” the Post-Gazette reported. “The ability of Ms. Yashchyshyn — the daughter of an Illinois truck driver — to bypass the security at Mr. Trump’s club demonstrates the ease with which someone with a fake identity and shadowy background can get into a facility that’s one of America’s power centers and the epicenter of Republican Party politics.”

The article pointed to “multiple trips in and out of the club grounds” by a woman who is reportedly the subject of an FBI investigation, suggesting her presence “lays bare the vulnerabilities of a facility that serves as both the former president’s residence and a private club, and highlights the gaps in security that can take place.”

This being a lot of speculation supported by little more than a few photos Yashchyshyn took with Trump and other Mar-a-Lago notables. For the record, Mar-a-Lago is a private resort with up to 500 members — the 126-room, 62,500-square-foot mansion includes the Mar-a-Lago Club, a members-only club with guest rooms, a spa, and other hotel-style amenities.

The finger-pointing leading up to FBI agents seizing boxes of so-called classified and top-secret materials, of course, as a result of the raid on Mar-a-Lago.

The Post-Gazette reported “that numerous records have been turned over to the FBI as part of the inquiry, including copies of two fake passports from the U.S. and Canada — bearing her photo and the name Anna de Rothschild.”

For the record, Yashchyshyn denies any wrongdoing, chalking it all up to a “misunderstanding” after meeting with FBI agents.

Dean Lawrence, a Florida music creative director, met with Trump insiders at Mar-a-Lago and surprised them with the news of who Rothschild really was, according to the Post-Gazette.

“What I’m trying to understand is how did they allow this?” Lawrence said. “How could someone keep coming back — at that level? This is Mar-a-Lago.”

Keep in mind that Trump has Secret Service protection at Mar-a-Lago, though the Post-Gazette cited four former agents to say the agency “more than likely didn’t run background checks to determine Ms. Yashchyshyn’s identity when she visited the former president’s home, partly because the level of protection drops significantly when a president leaves office.”

And here is the kicker from the article, as the newspaper takes some liberty in describing current circumstances: “But experts say her ability to mingle with members of Mr. Trump’s entourage raises concerns about ongoing security at the private club that continues to host some of the most powerful elected leaders in the country and serves as a storage site for some of the country’s closely guarded secrets.”

You can almost imagine nuclear codes scattered around a Mar-a-Lago sitting room on coffee tables and couch arms, with Yashchyshyn having the run of the castle.

Of course, the best reason to disregard the whole story may be that retired FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi promoted it online — although his interest may prompt some to wonder what role the bureau may have played here, if true. After all, Yashchyshyn is said to be under investigation which would make her a prime candidate for agreeing to a deal.

Figliuzzi, an NBC News national security analyst, tweeted, “Using fake ID and posing as a European heiress, Russian speaking woman made multiple trips in and out of Mar-a-Lago: Federal authorities investigating Ukrainian immigrant who posed as a Rothschild, rubbed elbows with Trump and his allies at Mar-a-Lago.”

Oddly, former FBI officials are all over the story, as seen here from disgraced former agent Peter Strzok:

It’s like they are saying the raid was fully justified… even if you do get Russian collusion hoax vibes.

Either way, the story follows the well-worn pattern that has played out for the past six-plus years — reporting unfounded speculation and rumor that is then seized on as the truth by Trump haters to trash the former president. A pattern so effective that we long ago lost sight of the difference between fact and fiction.

Here’s a sampling of other responses to the story from Twitter:
