“House Oversight Committee report revealed the extent to which a private company & Trump allies were able to use the administration to further their own financial interests in Riyadh & to advocate for the transfer of U.S. nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia,”. The report reveals details how IP3 lobbied the Trump administration to relax their standards for any future nuclear agreement with Saudi Arabia, and how  IP3 officials were granted such “unprecedented access” to Trumpworld that they considered the administration an “extended team member,” and officials met directly with “President [Donald] TrumpJared KushnerGary CohnK.T. McFarland, & Cabinet Secretaries. This access “yielded promises from high-level government officials to support IP3’s efforts with Saudi officials.” Also implicated in the report were former Trump inauguration chair Thomas Barrack , and NSA  Michael Flynn.'

House Oversight Chair Rep. Elijah Cummings said in a statement. "The American people deserve to know the facts about whether the White House is willing to place the potential profits of the President's personal friends above the national security of the American people and the universal objective of preventing the spread of nuclear weapons."

"In addition to lobbying the Trump team, IP3 and Barrack's efforts also directly involved Saudi officials, including Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. IP3 officials traveled to Saudi Arabia in December 2016 to ask then-deputy crown prince MBS to invest in the company, using IP3's Trump connections and the incoming administration's support of IP3 as the primary argument to solicit funds. Trump and Kushner then met directly with MBS in March 2017, and IP3 officials said afterwards that the meeting "established the framework for our unique opportunity to take the next steps with IP3 and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia." Barrack used his Saudi connections to directly influence Trump even before the president's 2016 victory, as Barrack sent a draft of Trump's May 2016 energy speech to Saudi and Emerati officials to "coordinate pro-Gulf language." (The speech's theme, ironically, was "America First.")"
