Is State Department Lying to Congress on Sale of Ambassador's Residence in Israel?

Congressional staffers have heard State Department representatives say the government has yet to close on the sale of the United States Ambassador’s residence in Israel—but documents obtained by The Daily Beast reveal that State is misleading Congress on the sale.

Israeli land registry documents, obtained by The Daily Beast, show legal notification that a Delaware-registered company, Bayit by the Sea, has a lien, or legal claim, to the plush federal property as of Wednesday, September 23rd.

The State Department did not respond to a request for comment.

Four sources have confirmed that Bayit by the Sea (bayit means “house” in Hebrew) is a limited liability company owned by Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, who is the top financial backer for both President Trump and his close ally, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

2. I've never heard of federal property having a lien on it...

I'm not knowledgeable about this kind of thing, but is this normal? It stinks to me.
