MONACO: Russian Billionaire Targeted By Mueller For Links To Trump Gets Arrested On Corruption Charges

Radio Free Europe reports:

A Russian billionaire who purchased a mansion from President Trump in 2008 in a business deal that is now being investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller was arrested Tuesday in Monaco on corruption charges. Dmitri Rybolovlev, president of AS Monaco, was taken into custody by Monacan authorities on Tuesday and is under investigation for charges of corruption and “trafficking in active and passive influence,” according to French news service Le Monde.

Rybolovlev was the purchaser of a Florida mansion from Trump in 2008 for $95 million, a sharp increase from the $41 million Trump had paid for the property just four years earlier. His purchase of the mansion is one of several Trump business transactions that Bloomberg News reported last year were under investigation by Mueller, who is probing allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 election.
