Mueller Admits in Report That Deep State Was Spying on Cellphone GPS Signals to Pinpoint Trump Associate’s Location in January 2017

Erik Prince

In early January 2017 before Donald Trump’s inauguration the Obama Deep State was following Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater, to the Seychelles, an island nation in the Indian Ocean, for meetings with a Russian official and the crown prince of Abu Dhabi.

Obama deep state officials later leaked information on the meeting to the far left Washington Post.

The Seychelles meeting was not a success.  Not only did Prince achieve nothing, but nobody back home on Team Trump seemed to care.

According to the Washington Times the Mueller Report says deep state officials used cellphone GPS signals in January 2017 to pinpoint Trump associates’ locations.

This was before the Inauguration and during the Trump Transition period when the Obama deep state was listening in on General Flynn’s calls to foreign leaders in his role as National Security Advisor.

The deep state used cellphone data to track down Erik Prince in January 2017 and they may have spied on him during his Seychelles trip in January of that year.

Robert Mueller says he was able to pinpoint security company executive Erik Prince’s precise location for several hours in January 2017 by matching his mobile phone signal to a cell site near Trump Tower in New York City.

The special counsel’s report discloses the use of this investigative technique, by which police determine a suspect’s location via a cellphone’s GPS signal.

The Prince narrative is one instance in unredacted sections of the report in which Mr. Mueller’s team explicitly discloses cellphone tracking. It raises the question of whether the FBI applied the process to other investigative subjects — a phone’s GPS signal can disclose its exact location within a few feet. One of the first requests the FBI makes when confronting subjects is to ask for their electronic devices.

The fact Mr. Mueller could pinpoint Mr. Prince’s exact whereabouts suggest he used GPS readouts, which prosecutors can subpoena from cellular service providers.
