  • A witness in the Russia investigation has testified that Trump associate Erik Prince helped arrange a 2017 meeting in the Seychelles islands with a Kremlin ally as part of an effort to establish a backchannel of communication between the US and Russia, and to discuss US-Russia relations under the Trump administration. 
  • The revelation appears to contradict Prince’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee last year, when he told the panel his meeting with the Kremlin ally, Russian investor Kirill Dmitriev, happened by chance. 
  • The unnamed witness’ testimony also comes amid reports that George Nader, an adviser to the Emirati crown prince who attended the Seychelles meeting on behalf of the United Arab Emirates, is cooperating with Mueller and testified before a grand jury earlier this year.
