One thing that may fall out after the New York Times’ bombshell story about a second meeting at Trump Tower with Donald Trump, Jr. and foreign officials trying to help get his father elected is that Erik Prince may be cited for perjury during testimony before the House Intelligence Committee.
On November 30, 2017, Prince was asked directly if there was “formal communication or contact with the campaign.” He denied any such contacts.
But a new report from the New York Times reveals that Price actually facilitated high-level meetings between Trump and foreign agents on Aug. 3, 2016.
Prince arranged for Donald Trump Jr. to meet with the crown princes who led Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, who were both eager to help Trump Sr. win the presidency.Prince also arranged a meeting with an Israeli specialist in social media manipulation who created a multimillion-dollar proposal to help elect Trump, according to the Times.
An open and shut case of perjury, but Prince has one ace up his sleeve: Devin Nunes, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, who would be the one who would have to refer the case to the DOJ for possible prosecution. And he’s already proven that he will do absolutely anything to protect Trump and his allies from the consequences of their actions. He has been a slavishly loyal lickspittle from the very start and there’s no reason to think he’ll stop being that now.
