Special counsel Robert Mueller asks White House for documents on Michael Flynn

Allegations that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was paid by the Turkish government during the waning days of the 2016 presidential campaign are being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has requested documents regarding Flynn from the White House.

Flynn's consulting business Flynn Intel Group is alleged to have received $530,000 from a Turkish American businessman to run a campaign maligning an opponent of the Turkish government, said to have been behind last year's failed coup in Ankara.

WASHINGTON, D.C.: Investigators probing President Donald Trump's team for possible connections to Russian Federation have asked the White House to hand over records for what is believed to be the first time, The New York Times said Friday (Saturday in Manila).

Mr Flynn, a former lieutenant general in the USA 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.

Although receiving money from foreign governments is legal, failing to register as a foreign agent if you have done so is a crime.

Sanchez then positions the camera so she can speak into it with her sister's apparently lifeless body also in the frame. She over-rectified, making the vehicle swerve crosswise over paths, crash through a wire fence and upset into a field.

Mr. Flynn is at the centre of suspicions about a possible involvement of Russian. The document request is the first known instance of the special counsel asking the White House to hand over records.

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".

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.

Asked to comment on the article in the New York Times, one of the lawyers for Donald Trump, Ty Cobb, said that the White House had no intention of publicly discussing its "specific communications" with Mr. Mueller, but that it would "continue to cooperate fully with the special prosecutor".
