Senator Wants Treasury to Probe Trump Property sold to Russian Oligarch

Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon is requesting a government review of Donald Trump’s sale of a Palm Beach estate to Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev, a $95 million transaction that was double what Trump paid for the property only years earlier. He believes it’s possible money laundering.

Wyden on Friday sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

“Sen. Wyden’s request included any Suspicious Activity Reports related to the 2008 sale, which more than doubled the price Mr. Trump paid for it just four years earlier,” read a news release.

“He also requested information collected under Treasury’s Geographic Targeting Orders program, which requires title insurance companies to identify the people behind shell companies used for all-cash purchases of luxury real estate. Palm Beach County is one of the geographic areas covered by the targeting orders.”

The concern here is that if they conduct a transaction from which they do not seem to clearly “benefit,” suspicions arise as to the motive: what does the client stand to gain from the transaction if not monetary gain?

Is there evidence to suggest that the client is trying to hide money through this transaction, thus the value of this transaction itself being of secondary importance to them?

The purchase of the luxury estate of the Maison de l’Amitie took place at a time when Rybolovlev was going through divorce proceedings with his wife, reportedly trying to hide as much of his fortune from her as possible.

Actor/comedian Tom Arnold and television producer Mark Burnett, known for reality TV shows like The Apprentice and The Voice, reportedly got into a physical altercation at a pre-Emmys party on Sunday night. Both the LAPD and Arnold’s lawyer, Marty Singer, confirmed the incident to The Hollywood Reporter.

Arnold tweeted about the incident around Midnight EST, alleging that “Burnett just went apeshit & choked me at this huge Emmy party then he ran away with his torn Pink shirt & missing gold chain.” He also stated that he’d called the police.

Around 9:45 am EST, Tom Arnold reported that he had filed charges against Mark Burnet “in West LAPD.”

In response, Burnett’s wife, Roma Downey (of Touched by an Angel fame) tweeted an image of her bruised hand, claiming it was injured during the confrontation. “Got this bruise tonight when Tom Arnold tried to ambush my husband Mark and me at a charity event,” she wrote. “Is your TV show worth it Tom? Please stop.”

Downey was referring to Arnold’s new show, “The Hunt For The Trump Tapes,” which premieres Tuesday on Viceland. The show follows Arnold’s attempts to find tapes that show Donald Trump expressing bigoted views on the set of “The Apprentice,” which Burnett produces.

Manafort Will Lose Four Homes As Part of Guilty Plea

Manafort, already convicted, will be pleading in Court Friday on more felony charges in order to avoid another very public trial. He seems to be willing to spend a great deal of money not to go to jail, and doesn’t trust he would be pardoned by Trump – and will be giving up four houses at a value of $46 million.

According to the agreement, he will be also losing his life insurance policy, which will be owned by the federal government. Not sure how that will work exactly, but maybe they assume Russia will “take him out” sooner than later?

A statement from the White House on Friday said the plea deal had “nothing to do with the president or his victorious 2016 presidential campaign”.

The former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has agreed to co-operate with an investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the US election as part of a plea deal.

A College of Southern Nevada professor faces felony gun charges for shooting himself in a campus bathroom in protest of President Donald Trump, according to his arrest report.

Sociology professor Mark Bird suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound in the arm the morning of Aug. 28.

According to Bird’s arrest report, a CSN employee told police she spotted Bird walking into a restroom. Shortly after, the employee heard a loud noise, and said she saw Bird walk out of the bathroom with blood coming from his arm.

While attempting to help Bird with his injury, the employee told police he said: “Against Trump.” He was also “rambling” and “excited about all that was going on in the country,” according to the witness.

A CSN student was also near the bathroom when the shooting happened. Bird told her “he’s protesting Trump and that he shot himself because of that,” according to the report.

Inside the bathroom, responding officers found a $100 bill taped to the mirror along with a note that read “for the janitor.”

According to on campus officials, Bird is still employed with the school. It is unclear if he will face disciplinary action.

Bird faces multiple charges including discharging a gun within a prohibited structure.
