Flynn attempted to "manipulate the course of global nuclear policy for the financial gain of his business partners", and assured a business partner the U.S. would relax sanctions once he worked in Trump's White House, Cummings wrote to House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina.

"While you may want every Committee in Congress to investigate the same fact patterns, it isn't a prudent use of resources-something you used to be mindful of", Gowdy said. Copson allegedly responded, "I couldn't be better".

"You told Fox News that you wanted to hear "whatever he has" because '[t] alking to witnesses is usually a good thing, '" Cummings said. He was ousted as national security advisor after only 24 days on the job. The memo was intended for Trump to sign, though there's no indication the President saw it, the Journal reported.

The whistle-blower told Mr Cummings that he was attending an inaugural event on Jan 20, where he met one of Flynn's key allies on this project, Mr Alex Copson, who is described as a managing partner of ACU Strategic Partners, and was working with Flynn to promote the joint project with Russian Federation to build nuclear reactors in the Arab world.

Flynn allegedly sent the messages to Alex Copson, managing partner of ACU Strategic Partners, a U.S. nuclear power consultancy.

Attorneys for Flynn and Copson did not immediately return email and phone requests for comment.

Representative Elijah Cummings, the senior Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, recounted the whistleblower's allegations as part of a push to have Flynn and others testify to his committee. "This is the start of something I have been working on for years, and we are good to go".

According to a PowerPoint presentation from ACU obtained by Newsweek, Russian firms that would have been involved as well included a Russian arms exporter now under USA sanctions.

Flynn, who pleaded guilty Friday to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, did consulting work with the form as part of a deal to build nuclear reactors across the middle east.

The allegations posed new troubles for Flynn, who left the White House last February after barely three weeks and pleaded guilty last week to lying to FBI investigators in the Russian Federation election meddling probe.

Copson showed the informant the text message, according to Cummings.

The whistleblower also heard from Copson that Flynn would try to reduce sanctions against Russian Federation as "one of his first orders of business and that this would allow money to start flowing into the project", Cummings wrote. According to this account, Copson blamed President Barack Obama for the sanctions, stating that he "fucked everything up in my nuclear deal with the sanctions". A document filed in Flynn's case mentioned his failure to comply with foreign lobbying disclosure laws related to his work for Turkey, but his charging document didn't mention that work.

He also requested subpoenas for Copson, Barrack and other officials linked to the nuclear scheme.

Mr. Gowdy and Mr. Cummings have a long history of clashing publicly over politically charged investigations. Trey Gowdy, the Republican chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

'Our committee has credible allegations that President Trump's National Security Advisor sought to manipulate the course of worldwide nuclear policy for the financial gain of his former business partners, ' wrote Cummings, Politico reported in a story on the letter.

Trump fired Flynn in February, saying he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and others about his contacts with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. Flynn, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant general, pleaded guilty in federal court last week to one count of making false statements to the FBI and is now a cooperating witness in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible coordination between Trump's campaign and Russian intermediaries during the 2016 election. He and Cummings jointly exposed details that Flynn had lied on his security clearance forms earlier this year, though Chaffetz later backed off the inquiry despite the Democratic demands.
