Robert Mueller’s fishing expedition may have finally gotten a bite.
The special counsel is zeroing in on one secret closed-door meeting.
And anti-Trump forces believe it may be the smoking gun that takes down the President.
Mueller’s abusive investigation has settled on a 2017 meeting in Seychelles that he believes was used to set up a backchannel communication with Moscow.
This secret meeting was attended by George Nader – a Lebanese-American businessman who set up the meeting – Blackwater founder Erik Prince, and Kirill Dmitriev, who runs a Moscow wealth fund.
The Washington Post reports:
“Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III has gathered evidence that a secret meeting in Seychelles just before the inauguration of Donald Trump was an effort to establish a back channel between the incoming administration and the Kremlin — apparently contradicting statements made to lawmakers by one of its participants, according to people familiar with the matter.
In January 2017, Erik Prince, the founder of the private security company Blackwater, met with a Russian official close to Russian President Vladimir Putin and later described the meeting to congressional investigators as a chance encounter that was not a planned discussion of U.S.-Russia relations.
A witness cooperating with Mueller has told investigators the meeting was set up in advance so that a representative of the Trump transition could meet with an emissary from Moscow to discuss future relations between the countries, according to the people familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters…
…. While Mueller is probing the circumstances of the Seychelles meeting, he is also more broadly examining apparent efforts by the Trump transition team to create a back channel for secret talks between the new administration and the Kremlin. Mueller was appointed special counsel to investigate possible Russian interference in the 2016 election, whether any Americans assisted in such efforts, and any other matters that arise in the course of his probe.
Investigators now suspect that the Seychelles meeting may have been one of the first efforts to establish such a line of communications between the two governments, these people said. Nader’s account is considered key evidence — but not the only evidence — about what transpired in Seychelles, according to people familiar with the matter.”
But this is just the latest example of Mueller’s out-of-control vendetta against the President.
It isn’t illegal to have a backchannel line of communication between governments.
Furthermore, this meeting took place in 2017 – long after the 2016 election – and there is zero evidence it had anything to do with alleged Russia meddling.
In fact, the fact that the meeting to establish a backchannel took place after the election blows the collusion story out of the water.
If the Russians were colluding with the Trump campaign, they would have already had a backchannel line of communication
Mueller probing into this meeting proves he’s an anti-Trump zealot on a crusade to attack democracy by trying to remove a duly-elected President from office.
It’s an outrage and he should be fired immediately for posing a threat to our Constitutional norms of accepting the results of an election.
