This story is so obviously fake it’s already disappeared off my list of trending on Twitter.
(((Jeff Bezos))) has hit the point with me that Amazon ought to face a backlash for all the utter nonsense that WaPo prints about President Trump.
Controversial Blackwater founder Erik Prince acted as a back-channel go-between for President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a report.
Prince, a major Trump donor who is also the brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, traveled to a remote island in the Indian Ocean in January for discussions with a Putin associate about issues including Iran, the Washington Post said Monday.
Officials said that Prince represented himself as an emissary for then President-elect Trump for the meeting in the Seychelles, though both he and the administration deny it.
“We are not aware of any meetings and Erik Prince had no role in the transition,” Press Secretary Sean Spicer told the Post.
A spokesman for Prince said that the report was a “complete fabrication” and that “the meeting had nothing to do with President Trump.”
The meeting, which reportedly focused at least in part on trying to change Russia’s relationship with Iran, comes as meetings between those with ties to Trump and Russian officials have come under intense scrutiny.
Trump and his team have been quick to lambast any reporting on the matter as “fake news” and saying that the real story is leaked information.
FBI Director James Comey has said that his agency has been investigating possible connections between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials as part of a broader look into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Life today is like we’ve been pulled into an alternate universe where everything is slightly askew from how it used to be. There weren’t this many so-called Russian plots when the (((Communists))) were ruling Russia, with the goal of world domination.
Vladimir Putin is a Russian nationalist, not the new Hitler. But the press (paid by ?) won’t back off from simply making things up. The evil hand of a (((certain tribe))) is showing itself very clearly now.
