Members of the team of the special prosecutor, Robert Mueller have asked for the first time at the White House to provide documents, said Friday the New York Times.
Special counsel Robert Mueller investigating Russian interference in the 2016 United States presidential elections has asked the White House for documents related to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, according to the New York Times.
At a campaign rally in West Virginia on Friday, he dismissed the allegations and investigation as "fake news". At the core of suspicions against Flynn are payments of more than half a million dollars transferred to Flynn's former consulting firm by a Turkish-American businessman who is suspected to have served as a government mediator between September and November 2016.
Flynn declined to comment for the Times report, while Trump's special counsel Ty Cobb told the newspaper, "We've said before we're collaborating with the special counsel on an ongoing basis".
"Beyond that, as I have stressed repeatedly, we continue to fully cooperate with the Special Counsel", Cobb added.
Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, took over the Russian Federation probe after Trump fired his own Federal Bureau of Investigation director, James Comey, in May.
Taking money from Turkey or any foreign government is not illegal. If that money actually came from the Turkish government itself, Flynn could face a felony charge for not declaring himself a foreign agent or other charges for trying to hide the source of the money.
Prosecutors have also asked during interviews about Flynn's speaking engagements for Russian companies, for which he was paid more than $65,000 in 2015, and about his company's clients - including work it may have done with the Japanese government.
