2. Is this the "Fertilizer King?"

Lots of people pay $100,000,000 for a house that wouldn't sell for $40,000,000
and then bulldoze it.

But really what about HRC's emails?

5. Yes...that is what Rachel named him.


I have been following news about him for over a year now, am hoping this is a serious arrest/charge.

He flattened the property in question with the intent to divide it into 4 lots for sale, dunno if he got that far.

Not only was his jet in the same area of NJ as Trump was there, but his yacht was also seen in So. Fla.
at same times Trump was at Mar Loco.

12. Googling "Interpol" doesn't bring up anything,

darn it, and papers are soft peddling with "detained" and "held for questioning." These people have been conspiring against a lot of nations, especially in Europe, so hopefully this is very bad for him.

13. Found the actual Bloomberg article now...

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-11-06/russian-billionaire-rybolovlev-questioned-by-police-in-monaco
...

Rybolovlev’s lawyers, Hervé Temime and Thomas Giaccardi, said their client was interrogated based on information retrieved from his lawyer’s phone, something that is the subject of an appeal in Monaco. The attorneys also said they plan to lodge a complaint over the breach of secrecy in the case.

...

The billionaire’s residence in Monaco, La Belle Epoque, was searched Tuesday morning, according to Le Monde. Rybolovlev, who made an $11 billion fortune selling a pair of Russian fertilizer companies, has been feuding with Swiss art dealer Yves Bouvier about the sale of more than $2 billion of artwork. Rybolovlev has alleged that Bouvier overcharged him by as much as $1 billion for a collection of masterpieces by Pablo Picasso, Paul Gauguin, Gustav Klimt and others.

Monaco’s justice minister, Philippe Narmino, took early retirement in September 2017 after Le Monde published an article featuring what it said were text messages between Rybolovlev’s lawyer Tetiana Bersheda, Narmino and other Monaco officials in the weeks preceding and following the arrest of Bouvier by Monaco police on Feb. 25, 2015. Bouvier was taken into custody on his way to a meeting with Rybolovlev and accused by Monaco prosecutors of fraudulently overcharging the Russian.

The text messages were discovered after a Monaco investigating magistrate asked Bersheda to hand over her phone because a lawyer for Tania Rappo, a Bulgarian resident of Monaco involved in the dispute, complained that Bersheda had illegally recorded conversations between the two women.

14. Interesting but just as mystified.

Coincidental clandestine meetings between Trump, Javanka, Russian billionaires sound unlikely, though.

15. One wonders if Mueller's team has worked with Monaco's police....

in this matter. Hey, getting them to arrest that Russkie is the 1st step in squeezing him for info on this odd sale. I would not be surprised as the FBI often works with foreign governments on a scratch-my-back basis. Would be great to find out small mushroon peni Trumpboy is in this up to his fat neck!

16. While Monaco is a "principality" and a "sovereign state", it is run by the monied estates

I doubt that normal rules of international respect for money transfers (laundering) are well enforced in this little haven.

I'd like to know how a normal nation (the US under a different potus) would be able to encourage this tax haven to do anything to disturb the extremely wealthy "residents" of the tiny area.
