Well, Twitter is blowing up about this. A lot of people think this could be going down.
If it's really all this connected (Hillary, Podesta, KSA Princes, Cheese Pizza), I could see why everything and everyone has been against Trump.
FFS, if he brought down something THIS big he WOULD be the messiah.

One of the princes to be removed Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal is the largest stock holder of CITI.
Maybe there is something a little deeper going on here?
Found this image of Al-Waleed bin Talal's wife.
From what I can tell, that was pretty much a publicity stunt to promote their new "modernization" image.

the reports are thin & sparse... but I think the Wahabbi 'Rulers' who allow the Monarchy operation charade to play out are purging the extreme elements who are too 'westernized' and involved with the wrong 'terrorists' as opposed to True Jihadists
I gotta see more to come to a prognosis
Reports suggested those detained were being held at the Ritz Carlton in Riyadh
I can't imagine them arresting Alwaleed Bin Talal while letting his family stay in Saudi and keeping his money? Money = power and if the family keeps the money its a risk for revenge or coup down the road.
Cant image the complete shock that him and his family will have if they cant have servants?
Saudi Arabia announced the arrest on Saturday night of the prominent billionaire investor Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, plus at least 10 other princes, four ministers and tens of former ministers.
He controls the investment firm Kingdom Holding and is one of the world’s richest men, owning or having owned major stakes in 21st Century Fox, Citigroup, Apple, Twitter and many other well-known companies [Lyft]. The prince also controls satellite television networks watched across the Arab world.
The sweeping campaign of arrests appears to be the latest move to consolidate the power of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the favorite son and top adviser of King Salman.
One of the biggest private foreign investors and real estate owners in Sweden, Mohammed Al-Amoudi, is among the people arrested in Saudi Arabia this weekend in what the government explained as a crackdown on corruption.
Al-Amoudi, who is of Ethiopian-Saudi origin, owns the Swedish petrol chain Preem. The company’s communications director in Sweden, Helene Samuelsson, has confirmed Al-Amoudi’s arrest to Swedish business daily Dagens Industri.
Assets include Sweden’s largest oil refiner, Preem AB, real estate and numerous contracting businesses. In Ethiopia, where he’s said to be the biggest private investor, he owns hotels and a gold mine, and has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in large-scale farms growing coffee and rice.
