Erik Prince sues The Intercept for defamation after it claims he offered Russian mercenaries help

Erik Prince, founder of private military contractor Blackwater and a Trump adviser, is suing The Intercept over an article that said he offered military services to a company linked to the Russian government

@rpwestcott  Actually Blackwater is no more. And we at @theintercept  have broken story after story about ErikPrince’s operations during the Trump era, beginning w me breaking the story of Prince serving as an informal advisor to Trump 3 years ago.

Here is that interview with former Blackwater boss and Trump ally Erik Prince, for @AJHeadtoHead  , which grabbed headlines and went viral around the world:

Delighted and honoured that we - @AJHeadtoHead  - won the Bronze medal at the New York Festival TV & Film Awards for my interview with Erik Prince at the Oxford Union last year, in both 'Best Interview' and 'Current Affairs' categories:

Erik Prince, Betsy DeVos & their mom viewed the Clinton admin as a secular dictatorship & they showered money on radical rightwing forces in the 90s. To them Clinton was the anti-Christ and Democrats a satanic cult. It's been a major driving factor in their strategic financing.

Erik interned for George HW Bush and thought he wasn't extreme enough. "I saw a lot of things I didn’t agree with—homosexual groups being invited in, the budget agreement, the Clean Air Act, those kind of bills," Prince said. He backed Pat Buchanan's insurgent run in 1992.

So if you enjoyed the earlier Erik Prince clip, here's the latest 1 - me asking him why he didn't mention his secret Trump Tower meeting while under oath to Congress. His reply... :-) I wrote why it's a big deal here:

Thanks to memos and emails released from the Mueller probe this weekend, we now have confirmation that Erik Prince was advising the Trump campaign on the eve of the presidential debates. That's not what he told me on a certain episode of Head to Head:

Astounding claims from Erik Prince, founder of Blackwater on Clinton & NYPD

If you're following the Erik Prince controversy, you'll enjoy a new highlight clip from my interview with him, in which I ask why he's building 'training facilities' in Xinjiang, where a million Uighur Muslims are in camps, and he tries & fails to deny it:

I asked Blackwater founder Erik Prince about calling Iraqis "barbarians" and about the murder & manslaughter that happened on his watch in Iraq. You should really listen to his replies. (Watch the whole with him this Friday on )

Breaking News: Erik Prince, the security contractor close to the Trump administration, recruited former U.S. and British spies to help infiltrate liberal groups

NEWS: DOJ is finally reviewing a 10-month-old referral from Adam Schiff alleging that Erik PRINCE repeatedly lied during his testimony in the House’s Russia probe. DOJ wrote to Schiff yesterday apologizing for the delay. Unclear what prompted the move.

Mattis shoots down the Erik Prince contractor plan for Afghanistan: “When Americans put their country’s reputation on the line, privatizing it is probably not a good idea.”

Erik Prince has a LOT of explaining to do to the House Intelligence Committee. Left: Prince’s sworn Nov. 30 testimony sharply downplaying his connection to the Trump campaign. Right: Prince facilitating high level meetings for the campaign with foreign officials, per NYT

We'll need to interview George Nader & receive further testimony and documents from Erik Prince. Prince’s testimony is inconsistent with reports that the Seychelles meeting was part of an effort to set up a backchannel to Russia. It'd be negligent of us not to find out the truth.
