On January 11, 2017, the UAE arranged a 2-day secret meeting in the Seychelles between Blackwater founder Erik Prince, and a Russian close to Vladimir Putin. They discussed establishing a back-channel line of communication between Trump and Russia. UAE’s main goal was to get Trump to help separate Russia from Iran. The FBI is scrutinizing this meeting as part of its overall Trump–Russia probe. Source
Erik Prince is related to the DeVoss family, whose company’s server was somehow involved with whatever was going on between Trump’s server and Alfa Bank.
