By MARCO STEVENS and DAVID GARZAA, Bleacher Reports Staff The internet has been abuzz with rumors about a pizza delivery man named “Paisanos” that supposedly delivered pizza to Donald Trump Jr. and others.
Now, the New York Times reports that the pizza delivery is actually fake.
A man named Paisanos, who appears to be in his late 20s, was photographed delivering pizzas to Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.
The pizza delivery driver is said to have worked for Paisanas Pizza in New York City, according to the Times.
In recent years, Paisanis Pizza has been accused of providing pizza to a host of high-profile clients, including the Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev, the Russian President Vladimir Putin, and even President Trump himself.
One of the pizza deliveries is said by The New York Post to have occurred in February, 2016.
Paisanys Pizza is not the only pizza delivery service that appears to have connections to Trump.
Earlier this month, The Post reported that a man named David Marques had been caught delivering pizzatas to President Trump at Mar-A-Lago in Florida.
Marques, who has worked at Marqas Pizza for the past few years, reportedly paid for the delivery of pizza to Trump and his entourage, according a Washington Post report.
Marques reportedly drove to Mar-as-Lago on January 25 and then delivered the pizzas.
The Post also reported that Marques paid $2,000 to deliver the pizza to the President and his family on January 26.
The PizzaGate controversy is not over.
The Washington Post also reports that a former employee of Paisanoss Pizza has allegedly come forward with evidence that Paisanins Pizza employees may have participated in a conspiracy to sell Trump’s campaign.
The former employee, named Alexei, alleges that he was working in the pizza parlor as a “gendarme” and that he worked as a delivery man to help out the company, The Washington Times reports.
He says that after a couple of months working for Paesanos, Alexei started working as a courier and was asked to deliver pizzas for Marques’ business, according the Post.
Alexei was allegedly paid $200 a delivery day, and he says that he would usually bring two pizzas and three or four pizzas on average per delivery day.
According to the Post, the pizza delivery business that Paesanins was reportedly running was allegedly “the most lucrative in the country,” and that it was often operated by “gendarmes, police officers, and other police officers.”
The Washington, D.C.-based pizza delivery company that was accused of selling Trump pizza was also linked to another scheme to sell Russian oligarchs $1 billion.
In July, The New Yorker reported that an email that was allegedly sent to a former senior aide to then-presidential candidate Trump was sent to two men at Paisanans Pizza, the Times reported.
The email allegedly warned that if the Trump campaign and the Democratic National Committee did not drop their investigation into the company soon, it would be possible for them to “lose the entire business,” The Times reported, citing the email.
The Times also reported in July that the former aide was a former “G-men” for the Trump presidential campaign, the Washington Post reported.
In an email sent on July 19, 2016, Paesanoss Pizza was allegedly told to stop accepting new customers because the business was “not going to be able to keep up with the pace of our business.”
In an interview with Politico in March, Marques said that he believes that the delivery man who delivered the pizza at Marjorie’s Pizza in Palm Springs was connected to the Trump team, Politico reported.
Marque said that after he left Paisanotos, he had been approached by the company to do an internship and then was told that Paanys employees “wanted to kill me.”
According to Politico, Marque claims that in March 2016, he went to a Palm Springs hotel room where he was allegedly forced to have oral sex with one of the alleged Trump campaign officials, and then later told to remove his clothes.
Marquez also claimed that he did not have access to Trump’s personal cellphone or email accounts, but he said that “I know a lot of people who have access, and I am not going to lie to you, but I have access,” Politico reported, noting that he has also spoken to other former employees.
Marse has reportedly hired lawyers, but it is unclear whether he is taking any legal action against Paisanoes Pizza.
