Obama’s National Security Council allegedly leaked information about former Navy SEAL and Blackwater CEO Erik Prince to the liberal press after they put him under “illegal” surveillance during a foreign trip, according to testimony Prince gave the House Intelligence Committee back in November.
The transcript, released Wednesday, indicates Prince believed that surveillance to be “illegal.” In response to a question from Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL), Prince discussed his belief American intelligence agencies surveilled him while he spoke in a hotel bar in the Seychelles with Russian businessman Kirill Dmitriev in January of 2017.
Prince told Rooney:
So if there was all this collusion, why would there even need to be any other followup meetings?” Prince told the committee.
“That is a leak of intelligence information, obviously signals intelligence, of private citizens, Americans, moving around or doing business abroad,” Prince fumed, adding, “I’ve seen a number of reports it was members of the Obama National Security Council.”
