Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, blasted the panel’s chairman for refusing to meet with a whistleblower who claims to have information about Michael Flynn’s efforts to do away with Russian sanctions.

The unidentified whistleblower claimed Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, told a former business associate on Inauguration Day that sanctions against Russia would be “ripped up” early into Trump’s presidency.

Cummings said the whistleblower, who he found “authentic, credible and reliable,” was willing to meet with the committee’s chairman to discuss evidence of his claims. The chairman, Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), refused the offer.
