Erik Prince, founder of the private security firm Blackwater, met with a Russian official close to Russian President Vladimir Putin in January 2017 to set up a channel so the Trump administration could discuss future relations between the two countries.
One of the witnesses cooperating with Mueller's probe has told investigators that Prince, 48, set up the meeting in order to discuss future relations between Washington and Moscow, serving as a de facto representative for Trump's transition team.
The Washington Post first reported that Mueller has gathered evidence that the secret meeting in Seychelles was an attempt to establish a back channel between Russian Federation and the incoming Trump administration.
Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly determined that a meeting in the Seychelles between associates of President Donald Trump and a Russian banker was meant to help establish a secret back-channel between Trump and Russia. And then there's Prince's attempts to win business from the Trump administration for his private mercenary army in Afghanistan and elsewhere.
Although Prince had no official role in the Trump transition team, The Intercept-citing a former senior USA official that advised the transition-reported in January 2017 that he had weighed in on Defense and State Department candidates and provided advice on intelligence and defense.
If confirmed, the nature of the Seychelles meeting would not be the first time the White House has allegedly tried to establish a back-channel with Russian Federation. One person described Nader as an important witness in Mueller's efforts - one who has spoken repeatedly to investigators since his arrival in the United States.
