Mueller Exposes Erik Prince's Lies About His Rendezvous with a Top Russian

Source: Daily Beast

Erik Prince, the Trumpworld associate and founder of the private military firm Blackwater, told Congress all sorts of things about his rendezvous with a powerful Moscow financial titan.

Many of those things werenít true, Special Counsel Robert Mueller confirmed in his report, released on Thursday.

Prince said he didnít know who he was meeting on his trip to a remote Indian Ocean island in January 2017, just days before the inauguration of President Trump. Not true.

Prince said the meeting with Kirill Dmitriev, the head of one of Russiaís sovereign wealth funds, the Russian Direct Investment Fund, was a chance encounter. Not true.

Prince said they talked mostly about minerals and energy. Not true.

Will Congress go after this lying criminal?

2. He is one of many

in his family. His sister Betsy DeVos is another. In a job she is unqualified for, destroying schools for ordinary people. This administration is chock full of scumbags. The big orange wart at the top is the worst.

5. The "religious" part is a red herring.

He's a soulless opportunist, interested only in money and power.

7. It's possible to be a religious soulless opportunist.

In fact, very religious people who break all the religious rules, somehow seeming to think they donít apply to them, are pretty common.

8. "Religion" is just a disguise for the Prince and DeVos families.

It's not the source of their assholery.

10. Washington Post: Congressional Democrats examine Erik's Prince statements on 2017 Seychelles meeting

Congressional Democrats examine Erikís Prince statements on 2017 Seychelles meeting for possible perjury

Nine days before Donald Trump took the oath of office, Erik Prince, the billionaire founder of the private military contractor Blackwater and a Trump ally, met in the Seychelles islands with a Russian financier close to Russian President Vladi≠mir Putin.

Prince later told congressional officials examining Russiaís interference in the presidential election that the meeting happened by chance and was not taken at the behest of the incoming administration ó testimony that congressional Democrats now think was false.

Prince told special counsel Robert S. Mueller IIIís investigators a version of the Seychelles meeting that is at odds in several key respects with his sworn testimony to the House Intelligence Committee in November 2017.

As lawmakers absorb the Mueller report and plan their next steps, congressional officials said they are considering whether the discrepancies are egregious enough to refer the matter to the Justice Department to pursue possible perjury charges against Prince. The investigators spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss their plans.

13. I remember first reading about that, when a journalist

there noted two yachts anchored close together. Bad luck.

I really hope one of those ongoing criminal investigations Mueller spun off is into the people involved with Cambridge Analytica. They're claiming liberal media unjustly destroyed the company. Those damned ilberals!
