The Associated Press has reported that Blackwater founder Erik Prince may have broken America's sanctions against Venezuela, a charge his attorney categorically denies.
Sources with knowledge of the plan say Blackwater's Erik Prince wants to send up to 5,000 Spanish-speaking troops into Venezuela.
Rick Gerson befriended Jared Kushner more than 10 years ago and is the founder, chairman and chief investment officer of Falcon Edge Capital, LP.
The meeting was reportedly part of an effort to set up a back-channel between the Kremlin and Trump.
The Blackwater founder testified before the House Intelligence Committee.
