Tensions Rise as the Oversight & Government Reform Committee document requests are denied by the White House

April 27, 2017 Ranking member of the Oversight Committee Rep. Elijah E. Cummings produces additional documentation highlighting former National Security Advisor Lt. General Michael Flynn’s disregard for the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.

Produced evidence shows Flynn accepted payment from U.S. adversaries Russia & Turkey without disclosing the receipts as required by the Emoluments Clause. When applying for security clearance Flynn was obligated to disclose foreign government recent contacts and payments. Despite various U.S. intelligence warnings Flynn has broken the law and could be subjected to 5 years imprisonment and more for these and other transgressions.     

In a noted letter (2014) the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) warned Flynn about his obligations regarding the Emoluments Clause. They also emphasized if laws were broken and he was sent to prison they couldn’t protect him from Bubba if he were to drop the soap.

Flynn is protected from investigations as the White House won’t release requested documentation to the Oversight Committee. In a secretly recorded message Flynn disclosed himself and the President have received funds from foreign agents, he further went on to say if the Clintons can do it, why can’t I?
