Now let’s get to it:
With all the lies going around from the Trumpsters, Flynn’s lawyer sure didn’t lie back in March when he said of Flynn ‘He certainly has a story to tell.’
Flynn has now cut a plead deal with Mueller were he’s pleaded to a relatively lesser charge in exchange for telling his very interesting story.
Now a whistleblower who spoke to one of Flynn’s associates has his own very interesting story to tell. Turns out Flynn was openly discussing ripping up the Russian sanctions around about Inauguration.
“The former national security adviser Michael Flynn suggested to a business associate that sanctions on Russia imposed by the Obama administration in December would be “ripped up” under President Donald Trump, a whistleblower told a Democratic congressman.”
So in light of this information we see Michael Flynn’s 5 phone calls to the Russian Ambassador on Dec 28, 2016 in a whole new light.
And of course, he lied to the FBI and the nation and claimed it wasn’t about sanctions. Now we see that Flynn himself had a real business interest in ending the sanctions-Russia was offering him a giant Middle East nuclear deal in exchange for getting rid of the sanctions.
The Democratic Congressman in question is-Elijah Cummings.
“The congressman, Rep. Elijah Cummings, outlined the whistleblower’s allegations in a letter to the House Oversight Committee’s chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, earlier this week.”
“I do not bring this whistleblower to your attention lightly,” Cummings said. “I have attempted to advance this investigation without exposing individuals to personal or professional risk. But the exceptionally troubling allegations in this case — combined with ongoing obstruction from the White House and others — have made this step necessary.”
“Cummings said the whistleblower contacted his office in June to describe a conversation at an event in Washington, DC, on the day of Trump’s inauguration.”
“At this event, the whistleblower met Alex Copson,” Cummings wrote. Copson was working at the time with Flynn to promote a project to build nuclear reactors in the Middle East, and Flynn reported in August that he served as an adviser to Copson’s company between 2015 and 2016.
“Copson described the project to the whistleblower as “involving a joint partnership between the United States and Russia relating to the energy sector in the Middle East,” the letter said.
It continued: “During their conversation, Mr. Copson informed the whistleblower that he ‘just got this text message’ from General Flynn saying that the project was ‘good to go.'”
Copson told the whistleblower that “Mike has been putting everything in place for us,” adding, “This is going to make a lot of very wealthy people,” according to Cummings’ letter.
“Mr. Copson explained that General Flynn was making sure that sanctions would be ‘ripped up,'” the letter said, adding that Copson told the whistleblower that President Barack Obama had “f—ed everything up in my nuclear deal with the sanctions.”
By now it’s pretty clear the nature of this Quid pro Quo:
“Giving Russia ‘exactly what they wanted in exchange for absolutely nothing'”
Not nothing; what they got in exchange was the election itself.
“The Trump administration reportedly looked into lifting US sanctions on Russia just days after the president’s inauguration. Tom Malinowski, a former State Department official, previously told Business Insider that if those efforts had been successful, it would have given the Russians “exactly what they wanted in exchange for absolutely nothing.”
“He and Daniel Fried, who was the chief US coordinator for sanctions policy until he retired in late February, lobbied Congress to halt the development of the sanctions-lifting package after government officials began ringing “alarm bells about possible concessions being made” to Russia, Malinowski said.
“Fried told Yahoo News that US government officials called him in a panic after receiving the White House’s request.”
He recalled them saying, “Please, my God, can’t you stop this?”
The only way to really stop this is to vote for a Democratic House.
And vote for Mike Sax for Congress NY District 2.

Meeting her recently was one of the biggest honors in my life to stand next to such a fine public servant and trailblazer. She seemed to like our Impeachment Train campaign t shirts too!
Think of the shirt as a one time investment in restoring legitimacy to this country.
