Flynn hinted Russian sanctions would be ‘ripped up’, whistleblower says
A new report on a whistleblower says that while US Presidential inauguration was underway in January, Michael Flynn was allegedly texting business partners about how sanctions against Russia would be “ripped up”.
It said that the then-incoming national security adviser also allegedly texted a business partner that a nuclear power project with Russians was “good to go”.
The whistleblower first approached the House Oversight committee in June, NBC News reports.
Flynn was earlier fired after he lied about meeting a Russian envoy during a probe into the Russian interference in the US Presidential elections.
