Erik Prince — whose sister is now Secretary of Education, under 45 — apparently (allegedly) held Logan Act violating meetings, on behalf of then only citizen Trump. To open a back channel to… Putin. What a pig — per The Washington Post tonihgt:
…The United Arab Emirates arranged the meeting — nine days before Donald Trump’s inauguration — between Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a Russian close to President Vladimir Putin as part of an apparent effort to establish a back-channel line of communication between Moscow and the president-elect, according to U.S., European and Arab officials. The White House said it was not aware of any meetings and Prince had no role in Trump’s transition….
It makes me wonder — what did Dick Cheney know — and when did he know it. Even though we know he is a never Trumper,
Erik Prince was his pit-bull. What on Earth was up with that?
UPDATED: apparently Erik hisself had been doing some cover black-bag style meeting arrangement work — on an island off the coast of Africa — to help Caesar Disgustus win the White House. Crazy pants time: will we see a return of Libby/Plame nuttiness?
