Press Release
Reports reveal Flynn's ties to activities including Russian military equipment sales, Saudi nuclear reactor construction, and selling cyber weaponry to repressive regimes

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, a member of the House Oversight Committee, released the following statement in response to new revelations about Michael Flynn’s dubious business activities:

“In the wake of disturbing new reports on Michael Flynn’s business ties, I’m calling for a complete review of the former National Security Advisor’s international dealings. The last two days have brought a string of disturbing new revelations about Flynn’s suspicious business interests, including his involvement in a plan to build nuclear reactors in Saudi Arabia and sell Russian military equipment to Arab states. Flynn also worked with a foreign cyberweapons company that helped repressive governments launch hacking efforts against human rights advocates and political dissidents.

We already know that General Flynn took huge sums from Russian sources and was working on behalf of the Turkish government while advising President Trump, but these new revelations make clear how important it is for the Oversight Committee to continue its investigation into General Flynn, his disclosures, and those of others who filed false reports to gain access to our national secrets.”
