Manafort transferred ownership of million dollar Florida mansion near Mar-a-Lago for $10 from jail: report

Published

on

Former Donald Trump presidential campaign manager Paul Manafort — who is looking at extended prison time for lying to federal investigators — transferred sole legal ownership of his million dollar Florida mansion to his wife while he sat in a Virginia jail awaiting his sentencing date.

According to Forbes, the Florida Palm Beach Gardens estate was purchased by Manafort and his wife, Kathleen, in 2007 for $1.5 million and they renovated the property in 2011. Located 15 miles north of President Donald Trump’s luxury Mar-a-Lago resort, the home was not included in the properties Manafort agreed to forfeit as part of his now-endangered September plea deal.

Forbes said property records show the signing-over of the deed of the 5-bedroom house took place on October 25 at the Virginia prison where Manafort is being held and that his wife paid $10 to complete the transaction.

According to former federal prosecutor Barbara McQuade, Manafort’s move is in line with his promise that he made that wanted to provide for his family when he made his plea deal.

“He has stated his goal is to make sure his family is taken care of,” said McQuade. “That might have been what he was trying to do.”

Despite the renovation and seven years having passed since it was purchased, the home is currently valued at $1.3 million by home site Zillow.

Published

ABC News broke a story just after midnight Thursday about a former IT consultant of Jeffrey Epstein's who resigned because he couldn't take the "extensive" collection of topless women photos displayed throughout Epstein's island compound.

The island, which has been called "pedophile island" by locals, had "topless women everywhere.

"There were photos of topless women everywhere," said contractor Steve Scully, who began working for Epstein in 1999 and continued for six years. "On his desk, in his office, in his bedroom."

Scully, who is a father of three girls, called the island "Little St. James," though near St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

on

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.
