Flynn texted during inauguration to suggest Russian Federation sanctions would end, Democrat says

Flynn was helping a former business partner lay the groundwork for nuclear power plants in the Middle East, a plan that involved a partnership with Russian Federation, despite his role as an advisor to President Trump, according to a purported whistleblower who provided an account to a leading Democrat in Congress.

President Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn told a former business associate that sanctions against Russian Federation would be "ripped up" early in the new presidency, according to a whistle-blower's account made public on Wednesday. It was just 11 minutes into Trump's speech when Copson showed the whistleblower a text message from Flynn that discussed a joint partnership between the USA and Russian Federation regarding the energy sector in the Middle East, according to the letter.

The whistleblower's account is included in a letter from Cummings to Republican chairman Trey Gowdy.

"These grave allegations compel a full, credible and bipartisan congressional investigation", Cummings wrote, according to the New York Times. The texts were timestamped as being sent just as President Trump was delivering his Inaugural Address, the whistleblower said.

He then allegedly told the whistleblower that Flynn assured him economic sanctions placed on Russia by then-President Barack Obama ― in retaliation for Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election ― would be "ripped up".

Those detained included the former head of the royal court Khaled Al-Tuwaijri, and Saudi media mogul Waleed Al-Ibrahim. Prominent figures, including princes, ministers and businessmen, were taken into custody last month.

"I do not bring this whistleblower to your attention lightly", Cummings wrote in the letter. In an earlier note to the committee, Copson said his firm had provided Flynn with a $25,000 check - left uncashed - and paid for Flynn's June 2015 trip to the Mideast as a security consultant for the project. "I am going to celebrate today".

Copson is the managing partner of ACU Strategic Partners.

"This is going to make a lot of very wealthy people", Mr. Copson said.

Reuters last week published documents that showed Copson and other plan proponents believed they had Flynn and Trump in their corner.

"At this event, the whistleblower met Alex Copson", Cummings wrote.

He also boasted that the BJP government had made efforts to ensure that the youth of Gujarat get the technology and an increase in the educational institutions.

"Mike has been putting everything in place for us", Copson told the informant, according to Cummings.

Flynn pleaded guilty last week to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the nature of his conversations with former Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak.

Copson had promoted a succession of nuclear projects created to include Russian participation dating back to the 1990s. He also lied when he said he did not recall a follow-up conversation with the ambassador, who said that "Russia had chosen to moderate its response to those sanctions as a result of Flynn's request".

The letter from Cummings concluded with a request to issue subpoenas for "all documents and communications referring or relating" to Flynn's foreign contacts during the Trump campaign, the transition period and his brief time as national security adviser.
