Mueller Just Obtained Trump Ally Erik Prince’s Phones And Computer: Report
A new bombshell report from ABC news revealed on Monday that Special counsel Robert Mueller has acquired Blackwater founder Erik Prince’s computer and phones as he zeroes in on the Trump ally’s ties to the Russia probe.
The military contractor’s electronics were turned over to the special counsel after news broke last week that he is “cooperating” with federal investigators, according to the news outlet.
Prince, the brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, has long been under scrutiny for a clandestine meeting in the Seychelles shortly after Trump was inaugurated that was allegedly intended to establish a backchannel between the administration and Russia.
The New York Times revealed last month that Prince appeared to have lied during sworn testimony before the House Intelligence Committee last November when claiming he had “formal communication or contact with the campaign.” However, in August 2016, the Blackwater founder arranged a meeting between the president’s son Donald Trump Jr. and Arab officials who were interested in helping his father win the election, the Times reported.
