Investigators are demanding documents to the White House

Investigators are demanding documents to the White House

Investigators probing Donald Trump's alleged links to Russian Federation have asked the White House to hand over documents relating to his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to sources close to the inquiry.

Mueller is looking into whether Flynn, whose consulting group Flynn Intel Group had worked with a Turkish-American businessman, was secretly paid by the Turkish government during the final months of the presidential campaign, New York Times reported Friday.

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

But the contract ended in mid-Novermber 2016, around the time that Flynn was announced as President Donald Trump's first National Security Adviser.

Ty Cobb, special counsel to Trump, said, "We've said before we're collaborating with the special counsel on an ongoing basis".

Trump has consistently denied any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation and has called Mueller's probe "a witch hunt".




This special prosecutor investigation mainly on the charges of interference of Russia in the presidential campaign of 2016, which saw the victory of Mr. Trump and on suspicion of collusion between the campaign team of Mr. Trump and Russian officials.

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

Mr. Trump has publicly warned Mr. Mueller that his financial affairs should not enter in the framework of its mission and that investigating them would be tantamount to crossing a red line.

Even before that, though, grand juries have the power to issue subpoenas compelling witnesses to testify or for documents to be produced.

Rather, they decide whether probable cause exists that a potential crime has been committed and if charges should be brought.
