It’s not uncommon for a real estate company to make a commission on the sale of a property.
But when it’s not just one but several properties being sold, when those properties are owned by the United States of America instead of a private company, and when those collective properties will fetch about $19 billion, netting the real estate company between $950 million and $1.1 billion, it’s fair to ask questions.
Adding to the irregularity of this deal, the real estate company that was given the exclusive listing for handling the sales is owned by Richard Blum, according to this article a friend recently sent me.
If that name doesn’t sound familiar to you, it may be because Richard Blum has a different last name than his wife, Dianne Feinstein. That’s right, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California.
As the article reports, “Senator Feinstein and her husband stand to make a fortune … from these transactions.”
Why didn’t the mainstream media report on a possible conflict of interest here? Does anyone want to at least investigate the possibility of corruption, considering we’re talking about billions of dollars in public assets – assets American taxpayers paid for?
