Drip Drip Drip…the Trump swamp keeps getting bigger and bigger…remember Erik Prince ‘s (Blackwater) sister is Betsy DeVos….
I know…another day, another Russian connection. Pretty soon all the “T’s” will be crossed and all the “I’s” will be dotted and Comrade Trump will be removed from office.
Isn’t it treasonous or illegal for a “pre-president” to be negotiating with a foreign country or enemy before becoming president….per the Logan Act?
Just in from the Washington Post:
The United Arab Emirates arranged a secret meeting in January between Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a Russian close to President Vladimir Putin as part of an apparent effort to establish a back-channel line of communication between Moscow and President-elect Donald Trump, according to U.S., European and Arab officials.
The meeting took place around Jan. 11 — nine days before Trump’s inauguration — in the Seychelles islands in the Indian Ocean, officials said. Though the full agenda remains unclear, the UAE agreed to broker the meeting in part to explore whether Russia could be persuaded to curtail its relationship with Iran, including in Syria, a Trump administration objective that would likely require major concessions to Moscow on U.S. sanctions.
Erik Prince needs to be questioned under oath and investigated by the FBI. What “under the table” deal was made with the UAE?
Current and former U.S. officials said that while Prince refrained from playing a direct role in the Trump transition, his name surfaced so frequently in internal discussions that he seemed to function as an outside adviser whose opinions were valued on a range of issues, including plans for overhauling the U.S. intelligence community.
He appears to have particularly close ties to Bannon, appearing multiple times as a guest on Bannon’s satellite radio program over the past year as well as in articles on the Breitbart Web site that Bannon ran before joining the Trump campaign.
In a July interview with Bannon, Prince said those seeking forceful U.S. leadership should “wait till January and hope Mr. Trump is elected.” And he lashed out at President Barack Obama, saying that because of his policies “the terrorists, the fascists, are winning.”
Prince went on to make a series of unfounded assertions that damaging material recovered from Weiner’s computers would implicate Hillary Clinton and her close adviser, Huma Abedin, who was married to Weiner. He also called Abedin an “agent of influence very sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Or……maybe this story was leaked by Trump and his deplorable gang to insinuate that he did not have any relationship with Putin prior to his inauguration? Nothing Trump and his basket of deplorable’s do would ever shock me. They’re depraved and immoral.
