Dems: Flynn did not disclose Middle East trip

Amid the ongoing Russian Federation probe conducted by Special Prosecutor Mueller and Congress, US Democratic party lawmakers have repeated their call, urging to provide all communications of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn with his business partners concerning his trips to the Middle East that he had allegedly failed to report about.

Flynn's former colleagues originally made the disclosures in response to a letter from House Oversight Committee ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and House Foreign Affairs Committee ranking member Elliot Engel (D-N.Y.) sent in June. Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland and Rep. Eliot Engel of NY also say documents they've gathered over the summer show Flynn also may have failed to disclose contacts he had with Israeli and Egyptian officials.

"It appears that General Flynn violated federal law by omitting this trip and these foreign contacts from his security clearance renewal application in 2016", they wrote.

The trip was meant to explore a business deal between the Saudi government and a Russian agency regarding nuclear power. The companies in turned provided House Democrats with statements confirming Flynn's 2015 Middle East venture, the goal of which was to secure a deal worth $100 billion with Saudi Arabia and Russia's nuclear power agency.

Flynn resigned from the White House in February after reports revealed he did not inform the White House about his potentially illegal contact with a Russian ambassador during the presidential campaign.

However, just as Flynn reportedly refused to comply with a subpoena to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, the former national security advisor and his lawyers refused to respond to Cummings and Engel's letter.
