Putin confidant Kirill Dmitriev and George Nader meet with Erik Prince on a remote island in the Indian Ocean to discuss Russia’s wishes for the Trump presidency.
Prince is a close friend of Steve Bannon, Trump campaign manager and soon-to-be White House strategist. Bannon sent Prince to the meeting on his behalf, according to Nader.
Putin had tasked Dmitriev with connecting to the Trump transition team. Dmitriev tried arranging a meeting with Jared Kushner or Donald Trump Jr. through George Nader, an American colleague who is currently in prison for child pornography.
Dmitriev also got in touch with Rick Gerson, a close friend of Kushner’s. Together they drafted a plan for how the Trump administration could support Russia’s motives for the U.S., and Dmitriev shared the plan with Putin before meeting with Erik Prince.
The January 11th meeting provided a cover for all three parties involved; executives from around the world were at the Seychelles island to meet the Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed.
