A new report reveals that ousted Trump adviser Mike Flynn held a secret meeting with King of Abdullah II of Jordan while reportedly pushing to build nuclear reactors in that country and others in the Middle East.
According to BuzzFeed News, Flynn was joined by his fellow fired coworker, former national security adviser Steve Bannon, and the president’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner.
The secret meeting was held on January 5, when Bannon, Kushner and Flynn met King Abdullah at the ritzy Four Seasons hotel, but then “took off in a fleet of SUVs and a sedan to a different location.”
Sources familiar with the meeting told BuzzFeed that Flynn’s nuclear deal, known as the “Marshall Plan,” was not discussed at the January 5 tête-à-tête — but another source, who had “access to a document created by a law-enforcement agency about the meeting” said that it was, indeed, a topic of discussion.
Flynn’s multi-billion dollar “Marshall Plan” would have seen reactors built by American companies, but with security staffed by the Kremlin-owned firm Rosoboron, “an arms exporter currently facing US sanctions.”
The Wall Street Journal, who first reported on Flynn’s deal, said the former general claimed to have stopped working on the nuclear deal in December 2016 on his White House disclosure forms, but continued working on it during his short-lived tenure in the administration.
