Mueller receives evidence Flynn broke the law by failing to disclose role in $100 billion Russia-Saudi deal

Published

on

Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s disgraced former national security adviser, may be in even more legal hot water.

CNN reports that House Democrats have sent special counsel Robert Mueller evidence that Flynn failed to disclose that, in 2015, he helped broker a $100 billion deal between the government of Saudi Arabia and a Russian state-owned company.

According to a letter signed by Reps. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and Eliot Engel (D-NY), Flynn never disclosed his role in brokering the deal when he reapplied for his national security clearance upon returning to the United States after his trip to the Middle East in 2015. Additionally, Flynn never disclosed that he received a payment of $25,000 for his work in lobbying for the deal.

“It appears that General Flynn violated federal law by omitting this trip and these foreign contacts from his security clearance renewal application in 2016 and concealing them from security clearance investigators who interviewed him as part of the background check process,” the letter reads.

Flynn’s attorneys are refusing to comment publicly on the allegations, and they are also telling House Democrats that their client will not respond to their inquiries unless legally compelled to do so.

“I know she has a tough job, but guess what, as long as we are being honest right now, nobody wants to hear from the White House or the attorney general right now,” Lemon said. “No one wants to hear from the man who wanted the death penalty to come back for the Central Park Five.”

“No one wants to hear from the man who says that the former president was not born in this country. No one wants to hear from the man who said there are ‘very fine people on both sides.’ Do you understand what I am saying?” he asked.
