A currently unidentified witness informed (D) Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (Md.), the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight and Government reform Committee, that as Donald J. Trump was delivering his inaugural address to the nation — his new national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, was texting a former Russian business associate to say they are “good to go” with building new nuclear power plants.
This information comes from a letter written by Cummings to (R) Rep. Trey Gowdy, (S.C.) chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Flynn told his Russian associate not to worry about the U.S. sanctions against Russia, because they would soon be coming to an end under the Trump regime.
Michael Flynn has not been explicitly proven to have made an agreement with the Russians to end U.S. sanctions that freeze the assets of top Kremlin officials — including Vladimir Putin. However, it has been well established that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer in June 2016, seeking help from the Russians to secure the presidency for his father. It has also been well established that at that time they spoke about Russia’s ban on U.S. adoptions — a ban that was put in place as a retaliation against the U.S. in response to sanctions placed on Russia. Basically, if they were talking about the adoption ban then they were talking about ending U.S. sanctions on Russia. Given the presence of top Trump officials at this meeting, Flynn had to know what was discussed.
The whistleblower’s account of what Flynn told his former business associates confirms, without a doubt, that the Trump administration was planning to end sanctions against Russia.
Perhaps equally as bad, this new evidence also demonstrates an effort by Flynn to manipulate international nuclear policy for the financial gain of his former business associates.
