Mueller Looks at Whether Flynn Was Secretly Paid by Turkey

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.

The New York Times reported Friday night that investigators working for special counsel Robert Mueller have asked the White House for documents concerning ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn.

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.

Mueller's team is investigating whether President Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

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.

On Thursday, Mueller seated a grand jury, meaning his probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is growing.

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. Clarification: This story was updated to reflect that The New York Times reported Mueller's investigators asked the White House for documents related to Flynn and that CNN previously reported the investigators have focused on Flynn's lobbying work for the Turkish government.

The Times reported that prosecutors have been investigating Flynn's business dealings with a Turkish-American businessman who worked with Flynn a year ago, and are trying to determine if the Turkish government was behind payments to Flynn.

Trump has publicly warned Mueller that his financial dealings should be out of bounds and investigating them would cross a red line.
