Investigators are demanding documents to the White House

Special counsel Robert Mueller wants documents from White House on Michael Flynn's ties to Turkey

The New York Times, which first reported this development, said that though the documents were not sought through a subpoena, this was the first instance of records being sought from the White House.

Investigators working for the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, recently asked the White House for documents related to Flynn, and questioned witnesses about whether he was secretly paid by the Turkish government during the final months of the presidential campaign, according to people close to the investigation. Flynn's consulting business was paid $530,000 to handle a campaign against an opponent of the Turkish government.

Prosecutors suspect that Mr Flynn may have received secret payments from the Turkish government during the presidential campaign, it is claimed.

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.

He told the Justice Department about the deal and retroactively registered as a foreign agent in March this year, one month after he was forced out of the White House for lying about his contact with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak before President Trump's inauguration.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday his committee is also looking into Flynn's financial connections with Turkey and into payments made to him by RT, a Russian government-backed network.

The lobbyist's spokeswoman Molly Toomey insisted they were refunds for unfulfilled work, telling the New York Times: "They were legal, ethical and above board". But the contract ended in mid-Novermber 2016, around the time that Flynn was announced as President Donald Trump's first national security adviser.

The news came one day after reports revealed that Mueller - a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director - has impaneled a grand jury to investigate Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.
