Trump seems to run his own personal agenda in the White House. Apparently, a recent congressional report mentions how Tom Barrack, the billionaire friend to Donald Trump was purposefully trying to help in the building of nuclear power plants in Saudi Arabia.
He pursued a plan to buy Westinghouse Electric Corp even as he lobbied Trump to become a special envoy to promote the building of such power plants.
Certain documents released by the Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives Oversight Committee had said that“there are serious questions about whether the White House is willing to place the potential profits of the President’s friends above the national security of the American people and the universal objective of preventing the spread of nuclear weapons.”
The report further states that there was a plan to construct 40 nuclear power plants in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere in theMiddle East. The report is, it is confirmed to the media, the second in the panel’s investigation into the plan. The report further states that the plan was supported by Trump’s first national security adviser Michael Flynn, Barrack, Trump’s inaugural committee chairman and a consortium of firms led by retired U.S. military commanders and former White House officials called IP3.
The report comes alongside a number of other investigations into the administration being conducted by the panel chaired by Representative Elijah Cummings. The White House might be subpoenaed for further leading documentation.
Further, documents have shown that Barrack negotiated with Trump and other White House officials to seek “powerful positions,” including special Middle East envoy, as he took steps to profit from the civil nuclear scheme he advocated.
The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
