Flynn, while involved in the Trump transition, worked with companies including ACU Strategic Partners to make a deal with Russia to build nuclear reactors in the Middle East
As President Donald Trump delivered his inaugural address, incoming-national security adviser Michael Flynn texted his former business colleague about a plan to join Russia and build nuclear reactors in the Middle East:
The project was "good to go," he told them, according to a summary of a whistleblower's account provided by a lawmaker.
The business colleague who texted with Flynn later recounted that he also suggested sanctions against Russia would be "ripped up" as one of the administration's first acts, according to the whistleblower.
Flynn had texted Copson with the same message -- that the nuclear reaction project was "good to go" -- from his place on the dais outside the Capitol 10 minutes into Trump's inaugural address, the whistleblower told Cummings. Flynn also texted Copson to tell his business colleagues to "let them know to put things in place," Cummings wrote.
Copson then told the whistleblower that Flynn "has been putting everything in place for us" and that the project would "make a lot of very wealthy people."

Sounds like they coordinated with Mueller's team. He knew about it and directed them to keep it quiet until certain investigative steps had been completed.
Mueller clearly dangled all kinds of charges over Flynn's head. If this factors into that, it really makes me wonder what kind of info Flynn gave up to get everything reduced to the one felony.

Cummings office can't even verify if the story is true AND he has been critical of Gowdy for quite some time.
Always scroll to the end, lol.

Let the following responses commence:
BARACK was worse
Just wait Mueller is going after Hillary

All just a witch hunt
Trump has done so much in office
What did I miss?
In the letter, Mr. Cummings said that the whistle-blower contacted his office in June and has authorized him to go public with the details.
In his letter, Mr. Cummings also said that his staff had been in consultations with Mr. Mueller’s team, which brought the criminal charge against Mr. Flynn. Staffers for the special counsel asked Mr. Cummings not to make the whistle-blower’s account public until “they completed certain investigative steps,” he wrote.
