Mueller's team asks for Flynn documents

Robert Mueller

The New York Times, which first reported this development, said that though the documents were not sought through a subpoena, this was the first instance of records being sought from the White House.

Investigators of special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, are examining the documents related to former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn to see if he was secretly paid by the Turkish government to lobby against a critic of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Although it is not seeking an injunction, this request, if its existence is confirmed, would be a new signal that the investigation led by Mr. Mueller is growing in power.

Trump has denied any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation and called the investigation a witch hunt.

According to a subpoena, federal prosecutors in Virginia were investigating a deal between Flynn and Turkish businessman Ekim Alptekin as part of a grand jury criminal probe, Reuters reported in June. It has been noted by the president, the Trump of her duties as national security adviser just a few weeks after his appointment, because he had not realized exactly how of the contacts he had had with Russian officials.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference in the United States presidential election and the Trump campaign appears to be making headway as he sends a request to the White House for documents on former security adviser Michael Flynn.

Investigators want to know if the Turkish government was behind those payments - and if the Flynn Intel Group made kickbacks to the businessman, Ekim Alptekin, for helping hide the source of the money.

In addition, according to the american media, Mr. Mueller would have started to examine the financial records of Mr. Trump's non-related to Russian Federation or the election.
