Special counsel Robert Mueller has gathered evidence that a secret meeting in the Seychelles just before the inauguration of Donald Trump was an effort to establish a back channel between the incoming administration and the Kremlin - apparently contradicting statements made to lawmakers by one of its participants, according to people familiar with the matter.

Prince had no formal role with the Trump campaign or transition. However, according to people familiar with the Seychelles meeting, he presented himself as an unofficial envoy for Trump to high-ranking Emiratis involved in setting up his discussion with the Russian official.
Moreover Trump was already elected
Mueller and the left are off their nut. Congress needs to shut this crap down
“Da Russkis are everywhere!” - Little Bobby Mueller
Why is the GOP Congress letting this witch hunt continue? Because they hate Trump just like the Democrats
????? After the election???? Soooo Whaaaaat! Back channel is nothing new, it goes on all the time. Somethings can’t and should not be said in front of the news Camera.
BFD if it WAS a planned meeting anyway -- the election was over!
joke of an investigation
So, now Trump is being investigated for conducting foreign policy?
Still not a crime for an incoming administration to have contact with a foreign government.
Mueller has nothing even if the details are true.
Just how is it a crime for an incoming administration to have informal or unofficial conversations with representatives of foreign nations?
Conducting foreign policy is now a crime?
I was in the Seychelles a few years ago.
Will Mueller be coming after me?
If they try to impeach Trump for some BS like this, all bets are off. The Dem traitors don’t get punished, there is no rule of law. They think nothing will happen. They’ll be in for a shock.
It was right before the inauguration, so it was after the election. During that time an incoming Administration is expected to engage with foreign powers. However, Prince was not even park of the Trump campaign or transition team or Administration. So, even if he was talking to someone, so what?
WTF. Trump was President-elect. He could establish any channel he wanted whether openly or back channel. This has no connection with collusion. In fact it begs the question. If Trump had been colluding with the Russians during the campaign, why would he need to establish a back channel? How would he have communicated with them?
Its known fact now that JFK set up a back channel to the Kremlin during his presidency with RFK serving as the go between. I guess JFK was a Russian stooge too!
Beyond that, how is it a crime for an incoming administration to try and set up a back-channel?
No greater back channel than installing a private server in a mom & pop bathroom outside the purview of the State Department...
That’s what Mike Flynn was prosecuted for...
