(MBS = Mohamed Bin Salman, leader of Saoudi Arabia)

Report on Nuclear Reactor Lobby
by Committee on Oversight and Reform
Chairman: Rep. Elijah Cummings
Corporate interests of specific companies are more than legally allowed influencing US Security Policy.
Think of: selling NUCLEAR REACTORS to Saudi Arabia (about 30), passing by non-proliferation concerns.
Also passing by PUBLIC DEBATE (aswellas fair chances of rival companies).
Officials of ONE COMPANY, named IP3, had unprecedented access to key figures around and including the president.
Tom Barrack (direct friend of Trump) played a key role as a liaison (most likely a paid one). This going on from the inauguration, which is more than 2 years ago.
At the same time that he was heavily involved in the lobbying process, Tom Barrack was seeking a powerful position WITHIN the Trump administration.
President Trump's laconic reaction to the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Kashoggi - after which MBS became known as Mohamed Bone Saw - seems influenced by these (TO THE PUBLIC UNKNOWN) commercial #nuclear interests.
General Michael Flynn (the president's National Security Advisor – but probably soon in prison) was already involved with IP3 and the lobbying process SINCE LONG BEFORE the #elections2016.
Through his friend Barrack, Arabian officials got a chance to add to a MAJOR SPEECH ON ENERGY that presidential candidate Trump has been holding.
IP3 even tried to sell Saudi Arabia 10% of its stock, promising – through Michael Flynn – a direct connection to the president.
IP3 officials even claimed that talks between Trump, Kushner and MBS (Saudi Arabia) created "the framework" for THEIR strategy.
But first, who is IP3?

To get an idea, this is from an internal mail of a rival company:
Who is IP3? (continued from same internal mail)

This will give you a better idea, also of the project !

SA = Saoudi Arabia
State = Department of State
DOE = Department of Energy
123 etc. = non-proliferation agreement
This internal mail from another company is also enlightening.
What they THEMSELVES say they are doing (noted down by someone else):
Obviously, the company who made that note is really selling nuclear reactors; whereas IP3 is selling "security services".

(Somehow this makes me think of that prince of merchants Eric Prince, don't know why.)
It's pretty complex. They also want to buy Westinghouse (nuclear reactors), to finance the buy with help from Arabian money, and with a view of earning it all back by building new reactors in the Middle East – about 30…
Alas, they lost the bid for Westinghouse.

Immediately, Barrack tries to get a (new) job from the company that won the bid:

(This just to get a feel of his commercial alertness…)
IP3, after the lost bid, also tries to stay in the race.

Had they formerly boasted of their American #patriotism, they now see no objections anymore to partnering with a Korean #nuclear company.
Back to the report, the Trump administration and the ethics of it all.

Did they have any idea that this was unusual close contact with ONE COMPANY and some friends?

Yes, they did:
Almost there. Now for some wider conclusions.

Remember "Hillary's emails"?

And now please MULTIPLY this: they 'all' used private mail…

But WHY ??
And now JUST IMAGINE that – until now – Robert Mueller, or the House, or the Senate 'forgot' to subpoena (or: did not receive) ALL THESE PRIVATE MAILS in which the really corny details were communicated…

Shall we wait for that or #ImpeachTrumpNow?
– the official reports + documents from the House Oversight Committee.
