Mueller Team Asks White House for Documents on Flynn

Special counsel Robert Mueller investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections has asked the White House for documents related to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, according to the New York Times.

Flynn's former lobbying firm, the Flynn Intel Group, was paid $530,000 to represent Ekim Alptekin, a Turkish businessman, during the final months of the United States presidential campaign, according to foreign agent registration paperwork filed with the Justice Department.

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

Mueller, who took over the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation when Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III recused himself, is apparently trying to determine if Flynn received secret payments from the Turkish government in the closing months of the 2016 election.

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. "And that was one of the things we discussed".

His work includes lucrative speaking engagements with Russian businesses.

Mueller's team, investigating whether President Trump's campaign coordinated with Russian Federation to influence last year's election, have questioned witnesses close to the former three-star general about Flynn's work with firms tied to the Turkish government, the New York Times reported.

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

The report comes after news that Mueller has begun using a grand jury in Washington, D.C., as part of his investigation.

He will investigate whether the former Apprentice star tried to obstruct the course of justice by pushing for an end into the inquiry into his former national security adviser.
