Special prosecutor Robert Mueller asks White House for documents on Flynn

Neither has the White House or Flynn's attorney responded to the recent reports on Mueller's investigations but one of Trump's attorneys said, "We've said before we're collaborating with the special counsel on an ongoing basis".

Special counsel Robert Mueller has requested the White House turn over documents concerning former national security adviser Michael Flynn, whose ties to both Russian Federation and Turkey have come under intense scrutiny since being ousted from the Trump administration.

They are said to have questioned witnesses about his dealings with Turkish-American lobbyist Ekim Alptekin, who paid his consulting firm Flynn Intel Group $530,000 during the U.S. election a year ago.

Pacer Umesh Yadav (1/17) was the lone wicket-taker in this session, dismissing opener Upul Tharanga (2) shortly after lunch . Ashwin, meanwhile, became the fourth fastest cricketer to achieve the double of 2000 runs and 200 wickets in Tests.

Mr Mueller's investigators have recently requested records relating to Mr Flynn from the White House, though it is not a formal subpoena.

The New York Times report said investigators want to know if that money was paid on behalf of the Turkish government, and whether payments were made to the businessman to keep secret the source of said money.

Ty Cobb, the White House special counsel, told CNN: "The White House will not be discussing any specific communications with the Special Counsel out of respect for the Special Counsel and his process". But failing to register as a foreign agent is a felony, and trying to hide the source of the money by routing it through a private company or some other entity, and then paying kickbacks to the middleman, could lead to numerous criminal charges, including fraud.

President Trump sacked FBI director James Comey in May after asking him to drop the investigation into Mr Flynn's links with Russian Federation.

The investigation also includes questions about whether Trump's actions amounted to obstruction of justice when he allegedly asked former FBI director James Comey to stop investigating Flynn at the beginning of his term.
