Rep. Elijah Cummings Accuses White House of ‘Covering Up’ Michael Flynn Activities, Releases New Docs

A newly declassified Defense Intelligence Agency document reveals that former national security adviser Michael Flynn was warned against accepting payments from foreign governments without permission.

The warning came in a letter released directly to Flynn.

Rep. Elijah Cummings released the documents this morning.

In a press conference (video forthcoming) this morning, Cummings accused the White House of “covering up” Michael Flynn’s activities with regard to his payments from Russia.

Cummings also said there is a new investigation of Flynn by the Department of Defense.

Earlier this week, the White House rejected a request from the House Oversight Committee for documents related to payments that former national security adviser Michael Flynn received from Russian firms including state-run RT.

House Oversight Committee Chair Jason Chaffetz and Cummings both said that Flynn appears to have behaved illegally with regard to the payments and called for him to come forward and testify.
