–  “Most Powerful Man In The World”‘s Inner Circle Probed By US Regulators For Money Laundering (ZeroHedge, Nov 6, 2014):

Being 2 for 2 in losses this week (The US Election and Time’s “world’s most powerful person), it appears President Obama has fallen back on his regulatory army to take the fight to Vladimir Putin. As WSJ reports, U.S. prosecutors have launched a money-laundering investigation of billionaire Gennady Timchenko – a member of Putin’s inner circle. The allegations are that Timchenko (who was among the first Russian businessmen to be sanctioned by the U.S. following Russia’s intervention in Ukraine’s Crimea region) transferred funds linked to allegedly corrupt deals in Russia through the U.S. financial system. The probe is also examining whether any of Mr. Putin’s personal wealth is connected to allegedly illicit funds. Timchenko warned in August, there are reasons to be seriously afraid of provocations from the U.S.”
