Evidence emerges that Blackwater’s Erik Prince managed a backchannel communications link with Putin for the Trump campaign

And here I thought that maybe Amway heiress Betsy DeVos got the job as Secretary of Education because, she offered to supply Trump properties with light bulbs and laundry detergent.

Yeah, according to the Washington Post, it looks as though Betsy DeVos’s brother, Erik Prince, the founder of the covert private military entity Blackwater, and friend of Steve Bannon’s, was involved in establishing a backchannel between Trump and Putin. I don’t suppose we’ll ever know why Trump chose DeVos, who many agree was the least qualified cabinet nominee in American history, to be his Secretary of Education, but it seems plausible to me that it was done, at least in part, in recognition of the family’s work on behalf of the Trump campaign… Speaking of which, as I understand it, we still don’t have a satisfactory answer as to why, a computer server at Russia’s Alfa Bank was apparently in communication with both a remote Pennsylvania office of the Trump Organization and Spectrum Health, a medical facility chain that Betsy DeVos’s husband Dick serves as chairman of the board for, prior to the election… The deeper you dig, the darker it gets.

As for the mention of sanctions in the Washington Post article, I wonder if they’re referring to the sanctions levied during the Obama administration that stopped Russian drilling in the Arctic. If so, all of the pieces may finally be falling into place… I mean, it’s conceivable that this secret meeting between Erik Prince and a Russian close to Putin on the Seychelles islands was about the steps that would have to be taken before the Trump administration could justify the lifting of sanctions, right? In other words, this secret meeting may not have primarily been about Russia’s relationship with Iran, but about the U.S. sanctions keeping Putin from what could be a $500 billion oil exploration deal with Exxon, right? And, if that’s the case, the whole narrative begins to make sense… The Russians helped Trump get elected in exchange for the lifting of sanctions, and, then, a few weeks prior to the inauguration, Erik Prince set up a secret meeting in the Indian ocean to discuss how those sanctions could be lifted. Makes sense to me.

    Strange that you should post this. I was just reading “Data Patterns Suggest Trump Tower/Spectrum Health Ran a “Stealth Data Machine” With Russia.”

    There are people saying that we’re making too much of the Russian connection. In large part, however, they’re the same people who demanded a federal investigation into Obama’s birth certificate.

    It’s a real life sordid Tom Cruise production, with Mark playing the role of Jack Reacher. We can title it “Alone in the Light”.

    Calm down. Maybe they just wanted to set up mercenary charter schools in former Baltic States.

    I prefer the term “teachers of fortune.”

    Follow the money. More than a few bad actors have a vested interest in lifting the sanctions levied against Russia.

    How much more detail about this has come to light since 2017? Does anyone have any more interesting detail?
