Top Senate Democrat Calls on Treasury Dept. to Investigate Trump’s Palm Beach Estate Sale 10 YEARS AGO – Because Russia, Russia, Russia…
They will never stop with their insanity.
They will never stop with their lies.
Top Senate Democrat Ron Wyden wants the US Treasury Department to investigate the sale of Donald Trump’s six-acre Palm Beach estate to a Russian billionaire… in 2008 – Nearly 10 years ago.
Democrats have found no evidence of Trump collusion with Russians during the election so now they are going back 100 years to a sale his company made to a Russian he did not know.
Meanwhile, evidence mounts that Hillary Clinton, Mark Warner and several Democrat operatives ALL had significant connections to dubious Russian officials during the election and after.
The media refuses to cover those stories.
A leading Senate Democrat has called on the Treasury Department to turn over banking and real estate records related to Donald Trump’s 2008 sale of a six-acre Palm Beach estate to a Russian billionaire – a real estate flip that yielded Trump $95 million after paying $41 million for the property just four years earlier.
“It is imperative that Congress follow the money and conduct a thorough investigation into any potential money laundering or other illicit financial dealings between the president, his associates, and Russia,” wrote Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee that is investigating 2016 election meddling.
The transaction between Trump and Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev is being reviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, Wyden says in his letter, citing a report by Bloomberg News.
In a 2016 interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Trump maintained that the real estate deal was one of the few deals he had ever done directly involving a Russian buyer.
