Gee, It Looks Like Erik Prince Really Effed Himself -- Check Out His Testimonial Inconsistencies.

.


ThinkProgress did a nice packaging of the testimonial inconsistencies BlackWater's Erik Prince (Betsy DeVos' younger brother) to the House and the House Intelligence Committee in 2017 and Special Counsel Robert Mueller:


The unofficial Trump campaign adviser testified under oath before the House Intelligence Committee in late 2017 about a meeting he had with Kirill Dmitriev, the head of Russia’s sovereign wealth fund, in the Seychelles on January 11, 2017.

At the time, Prince described the meeting as an impromptu conversation at the hotel bar where the two men briefly chatted about foreign policy and commodity prices before parting ways.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report paints a different picture. The report, based in part on interviews with Prince, describes the meeting not as a quick chat over a beer but as a planned rendezvous between emissaries of President Donald Trump’s team and the Kremlin.

“We have no comment to make,” Prince spokesperson Marc Cohen told ThinkProgress in response to a detailed list of questions. “Erik has said all there is to say on this.”

A side-by-side comparison of Prince’s congressional testimony and the Mueller report shows at least a dozen inconsistencies on six key points:

Who introduced Prince and Dmitriev,
How many times Prince and Dmitriev met in Seychelles,
Whether Prince acted on behalf of the Trump transition team,
Whether Prince knew Dmitriev ran Russia’s sovereign wealth fund,
Whether Prince and Dmitriev discussed a “back channel,” and
Whether Prince briefed then-senior Trump aide Steve Bannon on the meeting.

It's a nice packaging of the major discrepancies between the two that needs to be seen at the link above.
