Erik Prince was the founder of Blackwater, a security firm that became a symbol of US abuses in Iraq; several Blackwater guards were convicted of killing civilians. Prince is also the brother of Betsy DeVos, President Trump's Secretary of Education. Now, he's been named by the Washington Post as part of a secret meeting with a Russian official close to Vladimir Putin with the goal of curtailing Russia's relationship with Iran. Greg Miller co-wrote the story.
