And he's told lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee that he didn't plan to meet Dmitriev in the Seychelles - and that he went there as a private businessman and not as an emissary of the Trump transition team, the Post reported.

Prince also told congressional investigators he did not remember when or where he had a conversation with Steve Bannon, then a senior Trump adviser, during which Bannon told Prince he had met MBZ in NY in December, just weeks before Prince traveled to the Seychelles.

Schiff did not accuse Prince of lying, but said the interviews were necessary "so we can determine which account is accurate".

The key new player that has emerged in all this is Lebanese-American businessman George Nader.

FBI Director Robert Mueller testifies before the House Judiciary Committee hearing on Federal Bureau of Investigation oversight on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, U.S., June 13, 2013.

Obama's National Security Adviser Susan Rice explained during a September 2017 House Intelligence Committee interview why she unmasked Prince and members of Trump's transition team.

Investigators now suspect that the Seychelles meeting may have been one of the first efforts to establish such a line of communications between the two governments, these people said. Anonymous sources have told several outlets the meeting was an attempt to set up a line of communication between the Trump team and Russian Federation.

A new witness is causing trouble for the Trump administration.

On Thursday, the panel was holding a second interview with former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who had declined to answer certain questions, saying he needed more time.

But Republicans on the committee do not appear to share Schiff's urgency. He answered numerous committee's questions, Schiff said, but would not discuss several issues, including conversations about dumping FBI Director James Comey or potentially firing Mueller.

Several Republican committee members have said publicly that they hope to close the probe soon.

Lewandowski, who was sacked from the campaign in June 2016, is the last individual the committee is known to now have scheduled for an interview.

Schiff also says there are "large categories of documents" that need to be subpoenaed, including Roger Stone's communications, as well as Donald Trump Jr.'s communications with WikiLeaks.
