'Man of mystery' cooperates with Mueller in Russian Federation probe

If this is true, Erik Prince, founder of private security company Blackwater, lied to lawmakers about the meeting being a chance encounter between Russian and US actors.

In testimony before Congress, Prince, who's the younger brother of Trump's Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, denied attending the meeting as a representative of the Trump administration, insisting the meet-up was part of his role as a businessman.

A witness, who has been cooperating with Mueller, told investigators the meeting was set up before the inauguration so someone from Trump's transition team could meet with a Moscow emissary, WaPo's report notes, which relies exclusively on unnamed sources.

A Lebanese-American businessman who has acted as an adviser to the United Arab Emirates has been cooperating with Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III, after he was hit with a subpoena upon arriving in the United States in mid-January, according to people familiar with the matter.

Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano on Thursday defended the credibility of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, noting it's the former FBI director's job to "go down any rabbit hole he finds". He also said he was not there as a representative of the Trump campaign. Prince told The Daily Caller News Foundation in October 2017 Sessions should launch a probe into his case, where Obama administration officials leaked what he called false information to the news media.

A spokesman for the special counsel declined to comment.

The Post reported Nader has testified before a grand jury gathering evidence about discussions between the Trump transition team and emissaries of the Kremlin as part of Mueller's investigation.

Judge Andrew Napolitano said Thursday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is being led down new "rabbit holes" in his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

H.R. McMaster, Trump's national security adviser, learned that Kushner had contacts with foreign officials, including from the UAE, that he did not coordinate through the National Security Council or officially report.

Nader could not be reached for comment, and his lawyer declined to comment. Such a concession by Moscow would have been likely to require the easing of USA sanctions on Russian Federation, which were imposed for Russia's intervention in Ukraine in 2014, those officials said.

Prince, whose sister Betsy DeVos is Trump's education secretary, said a year ago he and Kirill Dmitriev, chief executive of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, or RDIF, met for about half an hour in a bar in the Indian Ocean country at the suggestion of officials from the United Arab Emirates.

Prince had no formal role with the Trump campaign or transition.
