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

As President Trump delivered his inaugural address, national security adviser Michael Flynn texted a former business partner that a private nuclear power project that would require lifting sanctions on Russian Federation was "good to go", a senior House Democrat said in a letter released Wednesday.

The whistleblower's allegations were made public in a letter Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the committee's top Democrat, sent to Gowdy Wednesday, to which Gowdy responded with a letter Wednesday evening. According to the whistleblower, Copson bragged to the whistleblower on Inauguration Day 2017 that Flynn had told Copson that the Russian Federation sanctions that had been an obstacle to the project pushed by the company will be "ripped up".

ACU Strategic Partners issued a statement on Wednesday saying, "No member of ACU received any communication in any form from General Flynn during the presidential campaign, the presidential transition, the inauguration, the period following the inauguration when General Flynn served as national security adviser or subsequent to General Flynn's resignation".

Cummings said the whistleblower, whom he did not identify in the letter, "fears retaliation", but would speak with Gowdy if he agrees to protect the whistleblower's identity. The subpoena to the White House should be for "all documents - including emails and text messages sent on personal devices" about Mr. Flynn's foreign contacts, payments and efforts to promote the proposal. These grave allegations compel a full, credible, and bipartisan congressional investigation, ' Cummings wrote.

He said Gowdy's handling of the matter sharply contrasts with the lengthy inquiry he led into allegations about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's role in the 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, "that were debunked years ago".

Flynn's lawyer did not respond to a request for comment on the latest claims.

Cummings said he had spoken to the witness and called the account a "credible" allegation that Flynn "sought to manipulate the course of global nuclear policy for the financial gain of his former business partners".

"I am going to celebrate today" Copson said, according to the whistle-blower.

"I do not bring this whistle-blower to your attention lightly", Mr. Cummings said. "This is going to make a lot of very wealthy people". Mr. Cummings said that Mr. Gowdy should subpoena Mr. Flynn, Mr. Copson and four others to testify before the panel.

Copson, according to the whistleblower, said Obama's sanctions had "f**ked everything up in my nuclear deal with the sanctions".

Attempts to reach Mr. Copson on Wednesday were unsuccessful.

On December 29, the day the Obama administration imposed new sanctions and expelled 35 Russian diplomats from the USA in retaliation for Moscow's election meddling, Flynn called Kislyak and asked that Russia not escalate the situation, according to court documents.

In Flynn's agreement last week to plead guilty to one count of making false statements, prosecutors said that Flynn lied to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about his discussions on sanctions against Russia with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition.
