Michael Flynn Vowed to End Russia Sanctions, According to Whistleblower

Michael Flynn Vowed to End Russia Sanctions, According to Whistleblower

On President Donald Trump's Inauguration Day, a former business parter of incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn allegedly bragged that Flynn told him Trump would quickly lift USA sanctions on Russia - a move that would pave the way for a controversial plan to build nuclear plants across the Middle East, with Russian help.

Now, new allegations are coming from a whistleblower who says he met Copson at a Washington, DC, event on Inauguration Day - and that Copson had some very interesting things to say about the project.

Obama had fired Flynn as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency.

"Our committee has credible allegations that President Trump's national security adviser sought to manipulate the course of worldwide nuclear policy for the financial gain of his former business partners", said Cummings.

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 investigators are searching for further evidence that Flynn lobbied from his government job as National Security Advisor for associates who had retained his consulting firm before the election. The memo was intended for Trump to sign, though there's no indication the President saw it, the Journal reported.

The exception to the evacuation order was the Bel Air Crest housing development, which was not threatened, Garcetti said. But by early Tuesday afternoon, the eastern boundary of the evacuation area had been expanded to the Haynes Canyon area.

On Wednesday Cummings sent the whistleblower's account to committee chairman Trey Gowdy with a request that he issue subpoenas to White House officials, including chief of staff John Kelly, as well as Flynn, Copson and their other business associates for material that would corroborate the whistleblower's statements.

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.

President Trump's personal White House lawyer, Ty Cobb, also declined to comment. The whistleblower alleged Copson showed off the text to those around him, calling it "the best day of my life".

According to the whistleblower, Copson said, "Mike has been putting everything in place for us". "This is the start of something I have been working on for years, and we are good to go".

A statement from a Dead & Company rep adds, "All tickets for the December 5 show will be honored for the rescheduled date". They are scheduled to play in Orlando on Thursday and Sunrise, FL on Friday.

The episode indicates that Trump officials had planned to jettison sanctions that the Obama administration had imposed on Russian Federation.

On December 1, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras announced that Flynn had reached a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller to cooperate in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. According to this account, Copson blamed President Barack Obama for the sanctions, stating that he "fucked everything up in my nuclear deal with the sanctions".

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.

The Newsweek account prompted Cummings to launch an investigation of the arrangement. Cummings described the account in a letter Wednesday to the panel's Republican chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy of SC. "They have now informed us that they have done so".
