Members of the sweeping federal investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller requested the White House submit documents linked to Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to the the New York Times
Investigators working for U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the investigation into alleged collusion with Russia in the 2016 presidential election, have demanded documents pertaining to former national security advisor Mike Flynn, The New York Times reported on Friday.  “Though not a formal subpoena, the document request is the first known instance of Mr. Mueller’s team asking the White House to hand over records,” the report claimed. It is the first time Mueller’s team has requested specific White House documents pertaining to a close Trump associate. The report also claimed that investigators were interviewing witnesses over claims Flynn’s company, the Flynn Intel Group, had been paid $530,000 by the Turkish government as part of a campaign to discredit the man accused of orchestrating last year’s failed coup. Flynn Intel Group reportedly received the funds from a Turkish-American businessman, Ekim Alptekin, who investigators believe may have ties to the Turkish government. Flynn has so far refused to comment on the story, while President Trump’s special counsel, Ty Cobb, said they would cooperate with any due request. “We’ve said before we’re collaborating with the special counsel on an ongoing basis,” Cobb told the Times. “It’s full cooperation mode as far as we are concerned.” Flynn was fired
