Top Dem blasts Oversight chairman for declining to interview Flynn whistleblower

Source: The Hill




BY OLIVIA BEAVERS - 12/07/17 10:30 AM EST

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, blasted the panel's chairman for refusing to meet with a whistleblower who claims to have information about Michael Flynn's early efforts to do away with Russian sanctions.

The unidentified whistleblower claimed Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, told a former business associate on Inauguration Day that sanctions against Russia would be “ripped up” early into Trump’s presidency.

“It is astonishing to me that you, as the sitting Chairman of the Oversight Committee, are declining to meet with a whistleblower who has agreed to come forward—despite fear of retaliation—to speak directly with you about evidence relating to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and his plan to lift sanctions in order to work with Russia to build nuclear reactors in the Middle East,” Cummings said in a statement directed at Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C) on Wednesday.

Cummings publicly urged the Oversight chief to investigate the matter earlier in the day, asking him to subpoena Flynn and his business associates in a letter first reported by The New York Times.

2. Well that will show them.

Democrats are displeased that Republicans won’t investigate credible allegations of serious crimes and they are making angry statements about it.

Winning a majority in the House or Senate might be more helpful in these matters, but apparently that is not on the top of the list for the DLC these days.

3. Of course not! Trey Gowdy is a first class rat-bastard. Re-thugs take marching orders from P. Ryan.

We are SO screwed.

All we have is Bob Mueller and his team to hang our hopes on. And they're trying to get rid of him too.

Treasonous, ReThug fuckers...all of them.

4. CYA GOP. Or should I say KGOP.

They're complicit with the Russians, against American interests.
