Schiff: Seychelles Meeting Either Was or Wasn’t Effort to Establish Back Channel with Russia

‘That allegation, if true, would be very disturbing’


REPORTER: "Do you think Erik Prince lied to the committee about the Seychelles meeting?"
SCHIFF: "I don’t know whether the public reports of what Mr. Nader may be saying are accurate or not. All I can say is if those reports are accurate, there is clearly a significant discrepancy between that version and what we heard in Erik Prince’s testimony, which is accurate, I don’t know, and we should find out, but clearly both can’t be true. It either was a back channel or it wasn’t, it was either a meeting arranged as a result of other discussions in December in Trump Tower or it wasn’t. And we need to get to the bottom of it."
