Mysterious meeting in the Seychelles

A cooperating witness had told special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators that a secret January, 2017 meeting in the island of Seychelles was established to be a back channel between the Trump administration and the Kremlin so that a representative of Trump’s transition team could discuss the future relationship between the two major powers with a Russian official.

A report by the The Washington Post had said that the testimony of George Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman who was present, was key evidence, but not the only evidence, in establishing this version of events.

That account directly contradicts the sworn testimony given to congressional investigators by Erik Prince, the founder of the security firm Blackwater, who had previously said his meeting with Kirill Dmitriev, a Russian official close with Russian President Vladimir Putin, happened by chance and was not set up ahead of time.

Nader, who began cooperating with investigators in January after he was detained at Dulles Airport and served a subpoena, helped arrange and attended the meeting.
