New Evidence Finds Trump Tried To Establish Secret Communications With The Kremlin
In recent months, there has been no shortage of evidence and data that has emerged surrounding the Trump-Russia investigation, as various discoveries have helped Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether or not the Trump campaign team inherently colluded with Kremlin officials during the 2016 general elections. As top members of Trump’s previous team have continuously been indicted by the special counsel, including the likes of Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, George Papadopolous, and others, all of which have been connected in some form to interactions with foreign agents on the campaign trail. On Wednesday, the Mueller team announced yet another bombshell discovery, this time regarding the false testimony of Erik Prince, a close member of the Trump circle.
Prince, who had no formal role in the Trump campaign or administration, nevertheless had close ties with various actions and initiatives of the transition team, despite never holding a specific title. When testifying in front of Congress, Prince had initially claimed that his meeting with Kirill Dmitriev in the African country of Seychelles occurred by chance, when both of the individuals were staying at a luxury hotel in the country. The meeting between Prince and Dmitriev, who is the head of the Russian wealth fund, has since been identified as a planned interaction as a means of establishing a more secretive communication channel with the Kremlin government.
