United States special counsel seeks Flynn documents from White House

Special counsel Robert Mueller wants documents from White House on Michael Flynn's ties to Turkey

According to the report, investigators questioned witnesses about whether Flynn secretly received payment from the Turkish government during the final months of US President Donald Trump's election campaign, on which he served as a senior adviser.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's office has reportedly asked the White House to hand over documents in relation to President Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn. At the core of suspicions against Flynn are payments of more than half a million dollars transferred to Flynn's former consulting firm by a Turkish-American businessman who is suspected to have served as a government mediator between September and November 2016.

Mr Flynn, a former lieutenant general in the United States army, failed to register as a foreign agent when Flynn Intel Group signed a $600,000 contract with Mr Alptekin's Dutch company Inovo BV in August 2016.

Members of the team of the special prosecutor, Robert Mueller have asked for the first time at the White House to provide documents, said Friday the New York Times.

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

His work includes lucrative speaking engagements with Russian businesses.

Inovo BV signed the $600,000 contract with Flynn Intel Group to fund a propaganda campaign against Mr Gulen, but in the end only paid $530,000 when it failed to produce a negative video about the Turkish exile and carried out unsatisfactory research.

Bharara was sacked by President Trump in March, even though Bharara said Trump invited him, shortly after the November 2016 election, to stay on.

Despite his mandate to look into allegations of President Donald Trump's collusion with Russian Federation, the counsel has lately been focusing on possible financial crimes of the president's team.

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.
