Mueller Team Asks White House for Documents on Flynn

On Friday, the magnitude of Mueller's participation increased with a New York Times story indicating they had requested any and all documents the White House may possess on Flynn.

Investigators probing Donald Trump's alleged links to Russian Federation have asked the White House to hand over documents relating to his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to sources close to the inquiry.

Taking money from Turkey or any foreign government is not illegal.

Flynn's business, Flynn Intel Group, worked with a Turkish-American businessman who paid the company $530,000 to "discredit an opponent of the Turkish government who has been accused of orchestrating last year's failed coup in the country".

Mr. Flynn is at the centre of suspicions about a possible involvement of Russian.

Since Flynn's payment acceptance occurred during the 2016 presidential campaign, during which he advised Trump, both the grand jury and Mueller's probe are trying to discern whether or not it was illegal.

Flynn resigned from the Trump administration in February after reports surfaced he had misled senior White House officials about his past conversations with Kremlin officials.

According to the Times, Mueller's team has "asked the White House for documents" regarding Flynn's brief tenure there.

But the investigation team led by special counsel Robert Mueller want to know if the Turkish government was behind the payments or if Mr Alptekin was bribed to hide the source of the money, according to the New York Times.

The lobbyist's spokeswoman Molly Toomey insisted they were refunds for unfulfilled work, telling the New York Times: "They were legal, ethical and above board".

Mueller has convened a grand jury in D.C. for the Russian Federation probe, a sign that the investigation into Russia's interference in the presidential election and Moscow's ties to the Trump campaign is heating up.
