The Obama administration spied on Blackwater USA founder Erik Prince and then leaked the details to the Washington Post.

The darkest secrets of the previous administration keep getting exposed. A transcript released on Wednesday showed President Trump’s “deep state advisor” and Blackwater USA founder Erik Prince revealing the unthinkable during a November 30th testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee. Believe it or not, he assured that the Obama administration spied on him and then leaked the details to the Washington Post.

Naturally, we’re talking about a delicate situation that could have very serious implications. In fact, analysts and legal experts believe this case could end in a political storm with unpredictable consequences,

According to the Washington Post, the advisor met with a Russian investor named Kirill Dmitriev for roughly half an hour while both of them were in Seychelles. This media outlet claimed this alleged meeting suddenly became “proof” that the Trump team had multiple backchannels to the Russian government.

The founder of Blackwater USA said he was told that the person who provided the intelligence to the Washington Post was an Obama National Security Council. He explained this person made this move after the Obama administration opened a counter-intelligence investigation into the Trump campaign in July 2016.

Regarding this operation, Prince suggested that the Obama administration decided to unmask his name from intelligence reports, which were then leaked to the newspaper. In addition, Prince assured that this article seriously damaged his relationship with the United Arab Emirates.

The founder of Blackwater USA said he was told that the person who provided the intelligence to the Washington Post was an Obama National Security Council member. He explained this person made this move after the administration opened a counter-intelligence investigation into the Trump campaign in July 2016. Prince also assured this action was based in part on the salacious anti-Trump dossier funded by the DNC and Hillary Clinton.

If Prince’s allegations are true, connecting the dots will provide a very dark picture. After all, we’re talking a possible conspiracy between the Obama administration and the DNC in order rig the primaries and at the same time sabotaging the Trump campaign. In fact, the goal of this hypothetical conspiracy could be even bigger, considering that its tentacles are being quite influential even now that the Republican became the new U.S. president.

Apparently, the Trump administration is considering proposals developed by Prince in an effort to provide the White House and CIA Director Mike Pompeo a global, private spy network.

Prince, who is a congressman and a private citizen, traveled to the Seychelles in order to meet with some Emirate people that he’d known for a couple of years. He explained that while they were there, some of these people assured that there was a “Russian guy” that had a lot of interesting in having a meeting with them.

Apparently, they even told Prince that it could be quite useful for him to meet this person. However, the congressman pointed out that he only had a conversation with the Russian for a maximum of 30 minutes. In fact, he assured it could probably end up being much less than that time.

Regarding this whole situation, Prince asked Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) during his testimony what they were doing to prevent the illicit use of the intelligence apparatus by a political party. In fact, he specifically asked for the previous one that did that to him.

According to the Washington Post, Erik Prince (pictured) met with a Russian investor called Kirill Dmitriev for roughly half an hour while both of them were in the Seychelles.

Prince added that he’s really bothered by that situation as Congress votes to reauthorize significant ability for the intelligence community to dig in everyone’s life. He even pointed out that this action usually takes place no matter if you’re a private citizen or not.

Naturally, he assured this is something quite terrible for the American people considering the collateral damages and the way it violates everyone’s privacy.

Apparently, the Trump administration is considering proposals developed by Prince in an effort to provide the White House and CIA Director Mike Pompeo a global, private spy network. Believe it or not, this would go around the U.S.’s official intelligence agencies. Of course, it would be quite difficult that this could pass considering the inevitable resistance it would have among these agencies.

Reportedly, the proposals would see an army of spies with no official cover in several countries that are “denied areas” for current American intelligence personnel. Naturally, this would include nations like Cuba, Iran and even North Korea.

Without any kind of doubt, this could be a major move that will increase the U.S. geopolitical power. However, experts believe it would be difficult that these proposals could reach a political consensus.

Apparently, Prince’s proposals include the consideration of creating a new global rendition unit, which will have the goal of capturing terrorist suspects around the world. In addition, the proposals included a propaganda campaign in the Middle East and Europe in order to combat Islamic extremism and halt its influence among young people.
