Dems Hunt Down Erik Prince – Mueller Gathers Evidence That 2017 Seychelles Meeting Was Effort to Set Up Back Channel to Kremlin
Mueller is on the march.
Dirty cop Robert Mueller is now investigating if founder of the security firm Blackwater, Erik Prince misled the House Intel Panel over a meeting he had in the Seychelles islands in January of 2017.
That’s right. Mueller is investigating a meeting that took place during the Trump transition which of course has nothing to do with the DNC server being hacked during the election.
Erik Prince is being accused of trying to set up a secret back channel with Russia during this meeting in the Seychelles.
In testimony last November before the panel, Erik Prince was questioned extensively about the January 2017 Seychelles meeting and whether it was an attempt to set up secret communications between the Trump administration and Russia. As Prince furiously denied that was the case, he also did not reveal that George Nader — a Lebanese-American businessman and Middle East specialist with ties to the Trump team — also attended at least one meeting there, raising fresh questions among Democrats about whether Prince misled the panel when testifying under oath.Prince, a Trump associate and brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, disclosed to the committee that he had met with United Arab Emirates officials and a Russian banker, Kirill Dmitriev, during that trip.But according to a new report from CNN, another individual also was present in the Seychelles at that time: Nader, who also is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. According to sources familiar with the matter, Nader attended the January 2017 Seychelles meeting between UAE officials and Prince. Nader was also present at a bar when Prince met separately with Dmitriev, the chief executive of the state-run Russian Direct Investment Fund, although it is unclear whether Nader was involved in the conversation, sources said.
And guess who is running to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer with concern? None other than leaker Adam Schiff.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that reports about Nader are “inconsistent” with Prince’s testimony before his committee.
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) said, “it’s all bull sh*t.”
Once again Mueller’s team is attempting to trap a Trump associate in an inconsistent statement because ‘Russian collusion’ is not a crime.
The Trump transition period is none of Mueller’s damn business anyway. Trump already won the election and was about to be sworn into office when this meeting took place.
It’s also strange how Trump supposedly had deep ties to Russia, the Kremlin and Putin the entire election yet Erik Prince had to set up a secret back channel to communicate with Russia after the election.
The meeting in the Seychelles has come under scrutiny because Democrats and some intelligence sources suspected it was a way to set up a back channel between the incoming Trump administration and the Kremlin. Prince has strongly denied that was the case, and he denied to the House panel last year that anyone on Trump’s team had asked him to take the meeting.
