…from Sputnik News, Moscow

[ Editor’s note: This story has been floating around for some time, but seems to be coming to a head, in terms of the dependable Mr. Barr guarding against any prosecutions around Trump’s key supporters.

Many Americans feel we have an attorney general who feels that since he is a political appointee, looking out for the Trump team that appointed him is his first duty.

There is some practical reason for Barr to make the Prince problem go away as we kick off the rundown to our November 3rd elections. Once you start pulling the string on Trump, you find a network of aiders and abettors that can expand the investigation, as the Trump gang people are busy folks with their fingers in a lot of pies. The seeds go all the way back to a 2016 piece:

According to the New York Times, an infamous August 3, 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr.convicted pedophile George Nader, Israeli social media expert Joel Zamel and Prince was premised on the idea that two princes–one from Saudi Arabia; one from the United Arab Emirates–were dedicated to helping the elder Trump become the 45th president of the United States.

There is a lot more where this came from that will never be prosecuted due to the great protector currently in the AG’s office. These people have one key focus, to stay in power for four more years of looting and pillaging, not just in money, but in hard wiring their hooks into the system so their influence and control is permanent … Jim W.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Erik Prince, the military contracting firm Academi LLC (formerly Blackwater) and an ally of US President Donald Trump, faces indictment by the Justice Department in connection to his ties with Russia, as well as possible violations of US export laws, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.

The WSJ report, based on unnamed sources, characterized the potential criminal probe as being “in the late stages of deciding whether to charge” Prince for lying to Congress during Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into allegations of Trump-Russia collusion.

“The investigation gathered steam in recent months with the cooperation of several witnesses, the people said. Potential charges against Mr. Prince, the founder of the defense contractor formerly known as Blackwater, include making false statements to Congress and violating the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, the people said,” the WSJ report reads.

Prince attorney Matthew Schwartz reportedly said the report provides no new information, noting that Prince “cooperated completely” in the Trump-Russia investigation and that his testimony to the House of Representatives panel has been public for over a year.

According to the WSJ, the Russia connection involves a meeting in the Seychelles after Trump’s 2016 election between Prince and  Russian Direct Investment Fund head Kirill Dmitriev.

Prince described the meeting as “a brief, unplanned encounter at a hotel bar”, and claimed that he was in the Indian Ocean nation only to meet potential business customers from the United Arab Emirates, the WSJ reported, saying that “Mr. Mueller’s team in its report described the episode unfolding differently”.

On 18 April 2019, the final report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia investigation said it did not find evidence to determine a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 US presidential election, which was denied by both Moscow and Trump.

Another case the DoJ is reportedly looking into would charge Prince for the illegal activities of his previous firm.

According to the WSJ, Prince’s former company, Academi LLC, entered into a deferred prosecution agreement in 2012 to resolve criminal charges that it violated export laws by not obtaining the appropriate licenses for services that included providing ammunition and body armor to Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as military training to Canada.

In 2015, the law firm King & Spalding purportedly conducted an investigation for security firm Frontier Services Group, in which Erik Prince was Chairman of the Board, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The WSJ claimed that it obtained a final report of the investigation, which reportedly found Prince guilty of trying to broker “the sale of aircraft outfitted with military capabilities” without “the appropriate license”.

  1. My oh my, how things can quickly turn. Eric Prinz brother to Betsy DeVoss appears to not be able to keep himself out of trouble for very long. I doubt many people in Holland, Mi. are aware of the shenanigans of Eric nor do they really care.
    I’m quite sure Eric could be brought up on other charges as well but it’s doubtful the tRump’s main fixer Barr will ever go that far.
    There are simply too many loose ends floating around for Barr to continue to cover up. He’s not that good and being in the same club as Mueller is a good clue to be highly suspicious of anything he does.
    In short , he is another thug, brought in to make sure nothing in the way of fecal matter gets on tRump or his cronies.
    Not since the rancid rule of King Richard and his corrupt stooge John Mitchell has the nation been so insulted by such a jackal as Barr.

  4. none of this is surprising..the u s has often built proxy armies ie..blackwater, sal, kurds, bin ladaen, isis and every other name they call them now ..and then just left them to rot or even bombed them to oblivion..the u s is the worst terrorist organisation the world has ever experienced .no morals ..no qualms about killing millions. no honesty ..no integrity…no nothing really except traitorous actions against allies they thought they “owned” ….had bought with their tainted $$

  5. Whatever… how could Donald Trump be “clean.” I don’t think there can be such a President. So no doubt there are seeds… threads… but you supported Hitlery? How is that possible. She is soooo much worse. To her credit, much more intelligent and savvy than the clown prince… a true blue through and through arch criminal of the finest stripe. I just can’t fathom, with all the literature that clearly shows the involvement in murder – over and over again… that you could possibly have put your weight behind them. It really damaged VT’s credibility forever. Too bad.
