Whistleblower To Dems: Flynn Promised Biz Associate He'd Gut Russia Sanctions

Fired former national security advisor Mike Flynn exalted that a nuclear deal involving Russian Federation was "good to go" just minutes after President Trump took the oath of office, House Oversight panel Democrats said based on a whistleblower's claims.

'Our committee has credible allegations that President Trump's National Security Advisor sought to manipulate the course of worldwide nuclear policy for the financial gain of his former business partners, ' wrote Cummings, Politico reported in a story on the letter.

Minutes after Trump had been sworn in, Copson told the whistleblower that he had received a text message from Flynn saying that they were "good to go" and to contact his other partners to "let them know to put things in place".

As the president spoke, Flynn reportedly texted Copson that the nuclear project was "good to go", the witness said Copson told him.

The letter says Flynn blamed Obama for having 'f***** everything up in my nuclear deal with the sanctions'.

The letter said that if this witness account is accurate, Mr Trump's national security adviser "was trying to manipulate the course of worldwide nuclear policy for the financial gain of his former business partners". "These grave allegations compel a full, credible, and bipartisan congressional investigation", Cummings wrote in the letter addressed to committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.).

Mr. Gowdy and Mr. Cummings have a long history of clashing publicly over politically charged investigations.

Cummings said he had found the unnamed informant to be "authentic, credible and reliable", and offered to produce the person for Gowdy.

Cummings' five-page letter to Gowdy calls for a slew of new subpoeanas and castigates the committee chairman for his "refusal to investigate".

"I do not bring this whistle-blower to your attention lightly", Cummings said.

"This is going to make a lot of very wealthy people", the associate, Alex Copson, told the whistleblower on inauguration day, according to the whistleblower's account to the Democrats. The whistleblower saw that the time stamp of the message was 12:11 pm, but did not read the text.

Flynn was involved in the Middle Eastern nuclear project from spring 2015 to the end of 2016, according to recent financial disclosure filings, a period that overlapped with his role as a prominent adviser to Trump's campaign and transition. Copson, who had previously employed Flynn to advise on the deal to build nuclear power plants with Russian Federation, told the whistleblower that it was the "best day of my life". Now Cummings wants to look into the matter.

As part of his plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating alleged collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, Flynn agreed to be a cooperative witness in exchange for avoiding prosecution on other charges that might be related to his involvement with Russian Federation during the campaign, the presidential transition and his brief stint as national security adviser.

Mr Cumming added, "If you agree to protect the individual's identity, this whistle-blower will speak with you directly so you can verify the information in this letter".
