Scottish Leader Says Trump Should Face 'Accountability' In Turnberry Probe

Source: HUFFPOST

President Donald Trump will face “due accountability” if evidence is found linking his Scottish golf resorts to money laundering or other financial fraud, the leader of the Scottish government said this week.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon spoke out Wednesday in Parliament in response to a call from the co-leader of the Scottish Green Party to seek an “unexplained wealth order” to determine the source of funding for Trump’s $60 million cash purchase of his Trump Turnberry golf resort in 2014, when his U.S. tax returns showed vast losses that allowed him to avoid paying any income taxes. Trump also owns the Trump Aberdeen resort in Scotland.

The Scotish leader said she wouldn’t protect “the soon-to-be former president of the United States” from “due accountability in Scotland” if wrongdoing is found.

2. He can't stay at Mar a Lao for more than 2 weeks at a time due to zoning restrictions,

because it’s a private club and not a private residence!

He’ll have to wander from crappy golf resort to crappy golf resort forever, or at least until he loses the properties or goes to prison! He certainly can’t go back to New York State or NYC!

No Trump Tower for you, Donald!

4. Curious if he actually has a private residence and where. We know he is not going back to New York.

6. He probably can stay there as much as he wants and no one would bother with him

it's trying to claim it as a residence for tax, voting etc purposes that's he going to be challenged and pushed back on. Shouldn't be able to claim it as Homestead either under Florida law which would offer some protection from liens and judgments and the IRS.
