  • Special counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election

One of the most-powerful leaders in the United Arab Emirates has found himself entangled in special counsel Robert Muellers report on U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian interference in Americas 2016 election.

Marc Cohen, a spokesman for Prince, declined to comment on the Mueller report. "Erik has said all there is to say on this", Cohen said. A spokesman for the committee declined to comment on the discrepancies.

Prince claimed in November 2017 to the House Intelligence Committee that he coincidentally happened to meet Dmitriev while on a business trip and was not acting as a conduit for the Trump campaign.

Prince told Dmitriev that he often provided Bannon with policy papers, and after the meeting he told Nader that he would inform Bannon about his discussion with Dmitriev and convey that "someone within the Russian power structure was interested in seeking better relations with the incoming Administration".

But Bannon told Mueller's investigators that he never discussed Dmitriev with Prince - or any meeting with Russian individuals or people associated with Putin.

"The conflicting accounts provided by Bannon and Prince could not be independently clarified by reviewing their communications, because neither one was able to produce any of the messages they exchanged in the time period surrounding the Seychelles meeting", Mueller wrote.

Dmitriev enlisted the help of George Nader, an adviser to the United Arab Emirates crown prince, to introduce him to Trump transition team officials and Nader then arranged the meeting in the Seychelles, the report says.

In the course of the January 11, 2017, meeting, which lasted no more than 45 minutes, Mueller said Prince portrayed the eight years of the Obama administration in a negative light and said he looked forward to "a new era of cooperation and conflict resolution".

The second meeting took place in the hotel restaurant with Nader present.

Mueller's account, large parts of which are redacted, was based on interviews with Prince and Nader, as well as text messages and grand jury material, footnotes showed.

The report revealed that Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. election campaign and any possible coordination between Trump campaign members and Moscow, spawned 14 criminal probes.
