The Washington Post first reported that Mueller has gathered evidence that the secret meeting in Seychelles was an attempt to establish a back channel between Russian Federation and the incoming Trump administration.

The Post, citing unidentified people familiar with the matter, said a witness cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller told investigators that the meeting was held so that a representative of Trump's transition team could "meet with an emissary from Moscow to discuss future relations between the countries".

George Nader, a top adviser to the United Arab Emirates, gave testimony to a grand jury convened in Mueller's investigation of the Trump campaign last week, two sources told The Times Tuesday.

The Fox News senior judicial analyst said Trump can ask people who work for him anything he wants and he does not see anything unlawful laid out in the report. The meeting has been previously reported.

Mueller's team has questioned potential witnesses about allegations that Nader helped funnel money from the UAE to Trump's presidential campaign to buy political influence. He's met numerous times with investigators, the Post reported.

He also viciously lashed out at President Trump , saying, "I hate the guy". "You know he knew about it". Despite that, he affirmed to the Post that, "the Russians and Trump did not collude ".


Prince said his meeting with Dmitriev came up at the last minute and at the suggestion of the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, who Prince said invited him to the Seychelles - although he told congressional investigators he could not remember when or who from Zayed's staff extended the invitation.

Investigators now suspect that the Seychelles meeting may have been one of the first efforts to establish such a line of communications between the two governments, these people said.

Nader also attended meetings in the White House with Kushner and Bannon.

The UAE agreed to broker the meeting in part to explore whether Russian Federation could be persuaded to curtail its relationship with Iran, including in Syria, a Trump administration objective, according to U.S. European and Arab officials.

Nader attended a December 2016 meeting in NY between Emirati officials and members of Trump's inner circle, and another in January 2017 in the Seychelles islands between the Emiratis and Erik Prince, a Trump associate.

One of Donald Trump's former campaign managers has arrived on Capitol Hill for a closed-door interview with the House Intelligence Committee as part of its Russian Federation investigation.
