This week, over on the Election Central Web site, the main story provides more information on the latest news and speculation surrounding changing roles in President Trump’s administration and leadership team.

Last week, Elijah Cummings–a Maryland representative and the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee==revealed in a letter that his office had been contacted back in June by an unnamed whistleblower with information about the Flynn case. A whistleblower is an informant: in other words, someone who reveals illegal or unethical conduct within an organization. In this case, the whistleblower told Cummings’ office that Flynn had been working with Russia to build nuclear power plants in the Middle East. On Inauguration Day–in fact, in the middle of Trump’s inaugural address–Flynn texted his business associate, Alex Copson of ACU Strategic Partners, to say that economic sanctions against Russia would quickly be removed as one of the new president’s first acts. He advised his associate that the project would now be “good to go” and to move ahead with it.
