Report: Trump Claimed $17M in Fake Storm Damages

Donald Trump claimed a $17 million insurance payday on his Mar-a-Lago property after a 2005 hurricane. But eyewitnesses told the Associated Press that the Palm Beach property never sustained close to $17 million in damages. "That house has never been seriously damaged," Trump's longtime butler Anthony Senecal told the AP of Mar-a-Lago hurricane history. "I was there for all of them."

Less than three weeks after Mar-a-Lago allegedly sustained $17 million in damages, the entire Trump family converged on the club to attend Donald Trump Jr.'s wedding there. Photos from the event show the estate in good repair. Tim Frank, Palm Beach's planning administrator in 2005, told the AP that his office would have noticed $17 million in construction on the landmark property. "If there were $17 million dollars of damage, we sure as hell would have known about that," Frank said. "I would have known if there was anything in the magnitude of $100,000." Records also reveal that Trump did not file any large-scale construction permits on the property after the hurricane. It would have likely been illegal to conduct major repairs without a permit.

Trump has previously admitted to depositing some of the $17 million payout into his personal bank accounts, saying that his insurance policy did not require him to reinvest in the allegedly damaged property.

Trump sure must be a busy person...hiting on women, cheating on his INS, cheating Polish workers, etc, etc.

 

yes he majors in scumbag.....takes all his time...LMAO

 

 

 

The butler said that? With respect, my friends on the left typically require more solid proof from more reliable sources.

 

 

Actually it was Tim Frank, Palm Beach's planning administrator ..........solid enough ???

 

 

 

Does this help ??? Is the Building Inspector solid enough ???

 

Palm Beach building department records show no permits for construction on that scale after the storms. Permits reflected smaller projects, including installation of new grease traps in the kitchen and tree trimming along the road. The only permits that appeared hurricane-related were for $3,000 in repairs to storm-damaged outdoor lighting and the vacuuming of sand from the property's beachfront pool. Likewise, records of the city's Landmarks and Preservation Commission reflected no repair work conducted following the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons.

The butler did it

 

Yes he did.......................... along with the building inspector, and the city planning administrator and the mayor........LMAO

 

 

The Republican mayor of Palm Beach at the time — and Mar-a-Lago member — Jack McDonald, agreed: "I am unable to comprehend $17 million in reimbursable damage."

Fraud charges would be better. A conviction better still.
