Kata Sarka, a Hungarian celebrity who competed in the 2013 Miss Universe pageant, says that reality TV star-turned-president elect Donald Trump tried to coax her into his Moscow hotel room.
Although Sarka first aired her allegation on a Hungarian television program last year, it has surfaced now because Trump strenuously denied this week that he was ever in a compromising position while visiting Russia.
In what seems like the most surreal moment from Trump’s hour-long Wednesday press conference, he assured reporters that all of his behavior overseas was totally circumspect.
I always tell them—anywhere, but I always tell them if I’m leaving this country, “Be very careful, because in your hotel rooms and no matter where you go, you’re gonna probably have cameras.” I’m not referring just to Russia, but I would certainly put them in that category.
And number one, “I hope you’re gonna be good anyway. But in those rooms, you have cameras in the strangest places. Cameras that are so small with modern technology, you can’t see them and you won’t know. You better be careful, or you’ll be watching yourself on nightly television.”
But on the show “Kasza Taxi,” which features celebrity interviews in a cab, Ms. Sarka said that Trump approached her at the after-party, surrounded by bodyguards, and “asked me who I was and what I was doing in Moscow. He was kind; he gave me his business card with his private phone number and invited me over to his room.”
The model and businesswoman even showed Trump’s card to the Hungarian tabloid Blikk.
“I was surprised but, obviously, I did not take it seriously,” she says. Accompanied by her husband Hajdú Péter and two other people, Sarka was hardly in the mood for an affair. Besides, Trump was four decades older and “not my type,” she tells Blikk.
Sarka is not speaking up out of distaste, however. She was excited that Trump won and looks forward to his leadership.
Was Trump compromised in Moscow?
Kata Sarka’s story throws fresh doubt on Trump’s denials that he was ever recorded in compromising situations while in Russia.
The practice of recording high-profile people in scandalous circumstances is so routine in Russia that it has a name: kompromat. Video and audio are generally made well in advance of any need to use them, while organized crime usually arranges such clandestine activities against anyone the intelligence services have missed.
Trump also did not contradict a journalist in 2001 when he said on the Howard Stern show that the future star of The Apprentice had bragged about his sexual exploits in Russia.
And of course, in 2005 Trump bragged to Billy Bush about sexually assaulting women while he was wearing an Access Hollywood microphone that he knew was hot.
These facts belie Donald Trump’s claim that he was too reserved in Russia to have been the subject of kompromat. On the contrary: we have every reason to believe that lurid reports of Russian leverage have some basis in fact even if the details being discussed in the public domain turn out to be wrong.
