Russian Yacht Owned By Putin’s Ally Arrives In Palm Beach Ahead Of Trump Visit

A Russian yacht owned by one of Vladimir Putin’s most prominent allies just docked in Palm Beach as President Trump is set to arrive at his Florida Mar-A-Lago resort for the Thanksgiving holiday

Roman Abramovich docked his yacht, which estimated to be worth between $400 and $500 million, at the port on Friday afternoon, and is expect to stay until Dec. 5, according to The Palm Beach Post.

Abramovich’s arrival comes days before Trump is set to arrive at his Florida resort for the Thanksgiving holiday, however there have been reports or signs that the two are meeting.

According to the report, both Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have met with Abramovich and his wife before.

The news comes as multiple congressional panels and Special Counsel Robert Mueller continue to probe alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russian election meddling.

Kushner has been thrust back into the spotlight of the probe, with the Senate Judiciary Committee claiming that he did not hand over all of the relevant documents needs as part of the investigation.

Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the chairman and ranking member on the Judiciary Committee said in a letter this week that “other parties have produced September 2016 email communications to Mr. Kushner concerning WikiLeaks, which Kushner then forwarded to another campaign official.”
