Kirsters Baish| It appears that even the swamp in Saudi Arabia is in the process of being drained. It was reported by Saudi Arabian authorities that they are looking for at least $6 billion from jailed Saudi Prince al-Waleed bin Talal. The money would secure his freedom. The prince was arrested in a huge anti-corruption purge which began after President Trump paid a visit to the Islamic region. This is reportedly the largest sum of money ever asked for my authorities in the Gulf state. The prince may have to hand over a big portion of his riches int eh Kingdom Holding Company. This company is estimated to have a market value of around $9 billion.
Al-Waleed is currently 63 years old and was reported by the Wall Street Journal to be the 57th richest person in the entire world. His estimated net worth is roughly $18 billion. This is a man who has made huge profits from Saudi Arabia which is known for their oil exports. He has also donated large sums of money to the Clinton Foundation.
Zero Hedge reported:
In a shocking development, late on Saturday the Saudi press reported that prominent billionaire, member of the royal Saudi family, and one of the biggest shareholders of Citi, News Corp. and Twitter – not to mention frequent CNBC guest – Al-Waleed bin Talal, along with ten senior princes, and some 38 ministers, has been arrested for corruption and money laundering charges on orders from the new anti-corruption committee headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, while Royal princes’ private planes have been grounded.
Among those fired and/or arrested are the head of National Royal Guards, Miteb Bin Abdullah, the Minister of Economy and Planning, Adel Fakeih, and Admiral Abdullah bin Sultan bin Mohammed Al-Sultan, the Commander of the Saudi Naval Forces.
It is known that bin Talal has immediate ties to Barack Obama as well as Hillary Clinton. As the story of bin Talal continues to develop, you can be sure that these arrests and investigations will implicate Barack Obama as well as Hillary Clinton in some very serious ways. Investigations into these big name Democrats will prove financial ties to the Islamic prince.
Anyone following President Trump’s efforts to monitor Obama and Clinton are well aware of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe and the fact that it implicates Tony Podesta. Tony Podesta is the brother of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta. The release of Wikileaks of John Podesta’s emails revealed a lot more to the Democratic Party’s corruption. We are now seeing Tony Podesta’s lobbying efforts with Russia as well as Saudi Arabia being leaked.
In August of 2016, Medea Benjamin began the search into the perils of Clinton and the Podesta brothers’ Saudi dealings.
Benjamin stated, “If I told you that Democratic Party lobbyist Tony Podesta, whose brother John Podesta chairs Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, is a registered foreign agent on the Saudi government’s payroll, you’d probably think I was a Trump-thumping, conspiratorial nutcase. But it’s true.”
In 1988, Tony and John Podesta created a lobbying firm which receives $140,000 every single month from the Saudi government. Keep in mind that the Saudi government is a government which beheads nonviolent dissidents. They torture people in order to extract entirely forced confessions. They don’t allow women to even drive. They bomb schools, hospitals, as well as residential neighborhoods. This money is dirty money.
The March 2016 filing by the Podesta group showed that Tony Podesta is the one who actually oversees the Saudi account. He was also a top campaign contributor for non other than Hillary Clinton. These brothers were running Clinton’s campaign while funding it with money that comes partly from the Saudis.
We were warned in 2012 by Pam Martens. Martens stated, “Citigroup was showing serious strains in 2007 but the meltdown came the week of November 17, 2008. On Monday, the firm called a Town Hall meeting with employees and announced the sacking of 52,000 workers. On Tuesday, November 18, Citigroup announced it had lost 53 per cent of an internal hedge fund’s money in a month’s time and that it was bringing $17 billion of off-balance sheet assets back onto its balance sheet. The next day brought the unwelcome tidings that a law firm was alleging that Citigroup peddled the MAT Five Fund as “safe” and “secure” then watched it lose 80 per cent of its value. On Thursday, Saudi Prince Walid bin Talal, a major shareholder, stepped forward to reassure the public that Citigroup was “undervalued” and he was buying more shares. The next day the stock dropped another 20 percent to close at $3.77. All told, Citigroup lost 60 per cent of its market value that week and 87 percent for the year to date.”
Just a month before the stock collapse, the United States government went through its Troubled Asset Relief Program in order to put $25 billion into Citigroup. The market cap was $20.5 billion on Friday, November 21, 2008. The American taxpayer owned this stock company, but the Treasury and the Feds knew who they were protecting. 11 months prior, Citigroup had publicized a capital raising of $12.5 billion.
The Four Seasons as well as the four highest floors of the infamous Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas where the Las Vegas mass shooting took place earlier this year are owned by Bin Talal. Is this simply a coincidence?
There is a lot more to these stories than the Left wants us to know. The truth always comes out, and I have a feeling it will be coming to bite the Dems right in the butt.
