In January 2017, Erik Prince, the founder of the private security company Blackwater, met with a Russian official close to Russian President Vladi­mir Putin and later described the meeting to congressional investigators as a chance encounter that was not a planned discussion of U.S.-Russia relations.

A witness cooperating with Mueller has told investigators the meeting was set up in advance so that a representative of the Trump transition could meet with an emissary from Moscow to discuss future relations between the countries, according to the people familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters.

The Russians also paid real Americans to work for them as part of their interference campaign. However, "the Americans did not know they were communicating with Russians," according to the indictment.

Trump and disparaging Hillary Clinton," and purchased "political advertisements on U.S. social media and other online sites.
