Special prosecutor Robert Mueller asks White House for documents on Flynn

These investigators have called the White House to produce documents about Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser to president Donald Trump, according to the daily, citing officials close to the investigation.

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

Speaking on ABC's "This Week", Conway says the White House has made clear it will cooperate with Mueller's investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

CEO Elon Musk hosted the event and revealed details of the various versions of the vehicle and add ons that customers could buy. Model 3 owners are likely to have only the Tesla to drive, so any quality issues could pose a serious headache, he added.

Witnesses interviewed by Mr Mueller's team claim two $40,000 payments from Flynn Intel Group to Inovo are being investigated as suspected bribes to Mr Alptekin.

"The White House will not be discussing any specific communications with the Special Counsel out of respect for the Special Counsel and his process". 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.

Mueller, who took over the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation when Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III recused himself, is apparently trying to determine if Flynn received secret payments from the Turkish government in the closing months of the 2016 election. He is also looking at whether Trump committed obstruction of justice by asking Comey to drop the investigation into Flynn. Mueller is using a grand jury in Washington as part of an investigation into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, according to a person familiar with the probe.
