Residence Dems Pry Into Mentioned Flynn, Saudi Russia Energy Deal

The top Democrats on the House oversight committee and the House foreign affairs committee sent a request to Flynn’s lawyers — as well as two consultants — seeking additional documents about a summer 2015 trip he took to the Middle East to float a nuclear energy deal involving Russia.
The request comes just two months after the House oversight committee revealed that Flynn never documented payments he received from RT-TV, generally considered to be an arm of the Russian government, on his 2016 application for a renewed security clearance.
Then-House oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz noted at the time that Flynn may have broken the law, but also said that was not a determination for congressional investigators to make.
The hotel Flynn says he stayed at does not exist, and there is no record of a travel companion he took with him, Cummings and Engel wrote.
Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the oversight committee, and Rep.
