Erik Prince, former Navy SEAL and Blackwater USA CEO, has alleged that former President Barack Obama’s National Security Council leaked information about him to liberal-leaning news outlets after they put him under surveillance he believes to be illegal.
Prince, who testified before the House Intelligence Committee on Nov. 30, recalled a trip he took in early January of this year — prior to the Jan. 20 inauguration — to the small country of Seychelles, a collection of islands in the Indian Ocean, where Prince met with United Arab Emirates business partners.
He also briefly met with a Russian identified as Kirill Dmitriev, “who ran some sort of hedge fund,” according to Prince’s testimony.
In April, The Washington Post ran what its editors likely believed to be a hard-hitting exposé on the meeting, and claimed that the meeting was an “apparent” attempt by the incoming Trump administration to set up a back channel to the Russian government.[contentcards url=”https://conservativetribune.com/another-trump-assoc-comes/” target=”_blank”]
