House Democrats told special counsel Robert Mueller they have evidence that Flynn broke the law by failing to include on his security clearance application a summer 2015 trip to the Middle East, where he tried to broker the $100 billion energy deal, according to CNN. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., was sent Tuesday to three companies Flynn advised in 2015 and 2016, with a copy sent to Mueller.
"We now request all communications that you and other officials at your companies had with General Flynn or other Trump Administration officials during the presidential campaign, during the transition, during General Flynn's tenure as National Security Advisor, or after General Flynn's departure from the White House". -Russian project to build nuclear reactors in the Middle East after becoming the first national security adviser under Donald Trump.
So far, Flynn's lawyer, Robert Kelner has not made any official comments.
The hugely ambitious scheme involves a consortium - including the United States, Russia, possibly China and companies from many other countries - building a network of 40 nuclear reactors across the Middle East, along with a major new electrical distribution network.
Further, the reactors were planned to be "proliferation proof", which means that they could not be used to produce fuel for nuclear weapons.
Cummings and Engel have sent their letter as part of an inquiry into the renewal of Flynn's 2016 Top Secret security clearance.

The businesses confirmed Flynn's trip.
When Flynn returned to the USA several months later and reapplied for his security clearance, he never disclosed the trip or the contacts he had with foreign nationals as part of the trip, the Democrats say.
Cummings and Engel said they would forward the information received from the business associates to special counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing alleged ties between the Trump campaign and alleged Russian election meddling.
Trump, who took office on January 20, fired Flynn on February 13 - merely 18 days after a top Justice Department official warned that the former Defense Intelligence Agency director could be blackmailed because Moscow knew he made misleading statements about his contacts with Russian officials.
The whole thing would be "fully funded by the Gulf Arab states", according to its backers, and the improvement in stability and security it would yield in the Middle East meant Flynn "firmly believed in the necessity of the project from a US national security perspective", they said.
