Senator Targets Trump's Palm Beach Mansion Sale!
The 2008 sale of Donald Trump's Palm Beach mansion to Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev for $95 million is under scrutiny. The sale came at a financially difficult time for Trump whose businesses had gone through a stretch of five bankruptcies between 1991 and 2004 and one more to come in 2009. Wyden is looking for any hints of money laundering as Rybolovlev had close ties to the Kremlin. Trump bought the Palm Beach mansion at a bankruptcy auction in 2004 for $41.35 million. Senator Ron Wyden (D-Or.) has asked the U.S. Treasury Department for documents related to the sale. src: thehill.com
