During Trump inaugural, Flynn greenlighted nuclear project with Russian Federation

During Trump inaugural, Flynn greenlighted nuclear project with Russian Federation”

A leading House Democrat revealed Wednesday he was approached by a whistleblower who said a businessman received a text from Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn on January 20, 2016 at 12:11 pm - as the newly sworn President Donald Trump was giving his inaugural address - indicating that a lucrative nuclear energy plan they had been developing with Russian partners was "Good to go".

The allegation - which suggests the Trump administration was eager to lift sanctions imposed by President Barack Obama and that Flynn may have blurred his public and private roles during his brief run at the White House - was outlined in a letter Cummings sent to Rep.

"Our committee has credible evidence 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.

The whistle-blower's account is detailed in a letter from Rep.

"I believe the American people want Congress to hold President Trump and his administration accountable", Cummings wrote, "and they are exhausted of Republicans in Congress putting their heads in the sand when faced with credible allegations of grave abuses".

Neither Gowdy nor Flynn's attorney, Robert Kelner, responded immediately to a request for comment. "I am going to celebrate today", and added, according to the whistleblower: "This is going to make a lot of very wealthy people".

Copson is the managing partner of ACU, a company that had funded a 2015 trip Flynn took the Middle East that he failed to disclose on security clearance forms.

The allegations posed new troubles for Flynn, who left the White House last February after barely three weeks and pleaded guilty last week to lying to FBI investigators in the Russian Federation election meddling probe. ACU was pushing a nuclear project in the Middle East that Flynn is said to have lobbied for while in the White House.

Copson, who six months earlier had paid Flynn US$25,000 (S$33,000) to help promote his scheme, told the whistleblower that Flynn told him sanctions on Russian Federation would be "ripped up" as a priority in the Trump government.

Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn told a former business associate "within minutes" of President Donald Trump being sworn in on Inauguration Day that economic sanctions against Russian Federation would be "ripped up" once Trump gets into office, according to a whistleblower.

"Mike has been putting everything in place for us".

Copson showed the witness the text on his phone.

Cummings wrote that Mueller's office had asked him to hold back the information until "they completed certain investigative steps" - which apparently have now been concluded. Once Flynn started at the White House, federal regulations prohibited him from working on any matter he served as a "consultant" on during the previous year, according to the Office of Government Ethics.

Cummings did not name the whistleblower in the letter, but offered to have Gowdy speak with the person directly.

Flynn pleaded guilty to a charge in the criminal investigation into Russian collusion last week.
