Perhaps Erik Price will have a return trip to the House Intelligence committee to explain himself.
If you weren’t worried about some some coincidences among mercenaries and the 2016 election, you should now be more concerned since dog-wagging military action could happen in Iran before the end of the Trump regime.
The other aspect was the role of an Israeli subcontractor in the data manipulation that overlapped with other aspects of #TrumpRussia. Some dots are being connected and blanks being filled.
Of course it’s Congress’s fault…

Lying to Congress is only the tip of how Prince may have been, as most have suspected, much more involved in the perfect (data) storm that was the 2016 Trump election.
Erik Prince, founder of the private American security company Blackwater, has admitted to meeting with members of the Trump campaign in August 2016 after, according to a public transcript, apparently failing to disclose the gathering during his testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee last year.
When asked by Mehdi Hasan on Al Jazeera’s Head to Head programme about the August 3, 2016 Trump Tower meeting that reportedly took place between Prince, Donald Trump campaign officials, an Israeli social media specialist and an emissary for two Gulf princes, the former Blackwater CEO did not deny the meeting took place.
“We were there … to talk about Iran policy,” Prince said when pressed by Hasan.
According to the New York Times, that meeting was attended by Prince, Donald Trump Jr, George Nader, a former Blackwater employee and emissary for the crown princes of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, Stephen Miller, then a top aide to the Trump campaign and currently a senior policy adviser to the president and Joel Zamel, whose company, Psy-Group, employed former Israeli intelligence operatives and specialised in social media manipulation, and was reportedly contacted by Rick Gates, a top Trump campaign official, for proposals for social media manipulation to help Trump win the election.
