Now let’s get to it:
Some recusal huh? Some rather amazing testimony by Erik Prince which has now become public. Yes, Blackwater Erik Prince, the Erik Prince who was involved in the action over at the NYPD to force out the Comey letter 11 days before the election; the Erik Prince who travelled to Seychelles in February of this year to establish a back channel between the Trump WH and Russia.
And now, the Erik Prince who has been helping the Trump WH with a plan for a private spy network to spy on the CIA.
Yeah-that Erik Prince. The Erik Prince who goes way back with Dana Rohrbacher, Russia’s favorite Congressman.

So that Erik Prince and that Devin Nunes; the one who was supposedly recused. He was coaching Prince on his House testimony.
“Devin Nunes met with Blackwater founder Erik Prince earlier this year and discussed Nunes’ investigation into the unmasking of Americans’ identities in US intelligence reports, Prince told the House Intelligence Committee in an interview last week.”
“The meeting, which took place over “the summer or early fall,” has raised eyebrows given Nunes’ recusal from the Russia investigation and Prince’s status as a witness in that probe. Prince was questioned by the committee on November 30 about his meeting with Emirati government officials and a Russian hedge fund manager in Seychelles just before the Inauguration.”
“Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff asked Prince during the hearing why he had not responded to a documents request sent to him by the committee on May 17. Prince insisted that he never received the letter and said the first time he heard from the committee was “only weeks ago” when a staffer, Kash Patel, asked if he would testify.”
Asked if he had “any subsequent communication with any of the members or staff of the committee,” Prince replied that he “had seen Chairman Nunes.” Prince said later that his meeting with Nunes was actually the first time he learned that the committee wanted him to testify.
“He had talked about coming in for a hearing,” Prince said. “And one of his staff members was there as well.”
Asked whether Nunes had gotten into “the substance of your testimony in any way,” Prince replied that the conversation revolved around Nunes’ “investigation into the unmasking of intelligence on Americans.”
“He said I should come in and talk to him about that,” Prince said.
Considering the fact that Prince is a material witness on a probe that Devin Nunes had to recuse himself from based on his own obstructive actions this is a clear case of: more obstruction.
Prince told Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell that he “went to see [Nunes] in his office about Afghanistan.”
“When was that?” Swalwell asked.
“Well, I don’t know,” Prince replied. “I wrote an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal. I was asked to come into the White House a couple times to talk about that. And so it was sometime, I don’t know, over the summer or early fall.”
Prince’s op-ed was published on May 31.
“How did unmasking come up?” Swalwell asked. “Did he bring it up, or did you?”
“No,” Prince said. “I asked him what the committee was doing to investigate illegal leaks and illegal unmasking of American citizens doing business abroad. And he said: You ought to come in and talk to the committee about it sometime.”
So Devin Nunes who was recused from the investigation was talking about this unmasking obsession with Erik Prince. And Prince himself set the agenda. He asked Nunes about it and was invited to discuss it before the Committee.
This is why it can’t be said enough: we need a Democratic House to get to the bottom of what happened in Russia. The GOP will never do it.
You know it, I know it, and they know it.
P.S. I’m Mike Sax, I’m running for Congress in the NY 2nd District and I’m a Hillary Clinton Democrat.
Meeting her recently was one of the biggest honors in my life to stand next to such a fine public servant and trailblazer. She seemed to like our Impeachment Train campaign t shirts too!
Think of the shirt as a one time investment in restoring legitimacy to this country.
