I'm very surprised this wasn't posted earlier. Practically a conspiracy in itself. lol

I'll let the article speak for itself. However I'll just give a brief summary.

It looks like Michael Flynn and Thomas Barrack were pushing to send nuclear tech to SA. And kept doing so after ethics advisors told them to stop. Also told them there were conflicts of interest. Barrack kept pushing the plan after Flynn's firing. Multiple whistleblowers came forward and alerted the House Oversight Committee.

Trump Officials Tried To Rush Nuclear Technology To Saudis, House Panel Finds

Former Trump Adviser Pushed Saudi Nuclear-Plant Plan, Report Says



The Trump administration sought to rush the transfer of American nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia in potential violation of the law, a new report from the House Oversight and Reform Committee alleges.

Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings' staff issued an "interim staff" report Tuesday, citing "multiple whistleblowers" who raised ethical and legal concerns about the process.

"They have warned about political appointees ignoring directives from top ethics advisers at the White House who repeatedly and unsuccessfully ordered senior Trump administration officials to halt their efforts," the report states. "They have also warned of conflicts of interest among top White House advisers that could implicate federal criminal statutes."

"potential violation"
" could implicate"
"The committee's report alleges"

Mr By Any Means necessary, Elijah Cummings, of the party that promised to launch all kinds of new investigations when they got house control, is starting a new investigation.

Call me gobsmacked.

"The committee announced that it intends to launch an investigation into this matter "

The ones trying to push for nuclear power in Saudi Arabia should be charged with treason.

The lobbyists in our country and Saudis have been pushing hard to get a reactor built there for years. There are many for it actually in our country if there is money to be made.


They are still pushing for it.

www.bloomberg.com...

Saudis Enlist Washington Lobbyists in Bid for Nuclear Plants

The usual excuse is, if we do not do it, the Russians will.
The same excuse used to arm the Saudis so they can give the weapons to their jihadis, otherwise Russia will arm them.

Trump supporter upon this news if Trump is president: 4D chess, fake news, deep state. He’s just triggering you

Trump supporter if done by Obama: take him to trial, Obama is a madman ... etc

As soon as we can have a logical conversation about topics here not sure why they continue to come up. This will just get drowned in Trump Supporter logic.

We're waiting for Trump to tweet out to us what to think about it.

Take a read of the report:

Report

Zero to no damaging information. A lot of conjecture.

Their conclusion? They do not know whether the administration's moves are in the national security interest of the United States or if they serve those who stand to gain financially.


Further investigation is needed to determine whether the actions being pursued by the Trump Administration are in the national security interest of the United States or, rather, serve those who stand to gain financially as a result of this potential change in U.S. foreign policy.

No, you provide information and links to back up your accusations first.

Innocent until proven guilty, thus the wording is correct pending an investigation and conviction in court.
