Special prosecutor Robert Mueller asks White House for documents on Flynn

Michael Flynn made a flurry of headlines Friday and Saturday, the most pressing of which was a New York Times report that investigators working for Robert Mueller asked the White House for documents related to the ex-national security adviser.

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

Witnesses have been questioned about possible secret payments from the Turkish government to Flynn, according to the report.

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

Flynn resigned after less than one month in office for failing to fully disclose the details of his December communications with the Russian ambassador in Washington to White House officials.

While Mr Mueller steps up his investigation, Donald Trump has again angrily denied that his campaign team colluded with the Kremlin.

In addition, according to the american media, Mr. Mueller would have started to examine the financial records of Mr. Trump's non-related to Russian Federation or the election.
