Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller Has Requested White House Documents On Michael Flynn

But the investigation team led by special counsel Robert Mueller want to know if the Turkish government was behind the payments or if Mr Alptekin was bribed to hide the source of the money, according to the New York Times.

Allegations that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was paid by the Turkish government during the waning days of the 2016 presidential campaign are being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has requested documents regarding Flynn from the White House.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly questioning witnesses about whether Flynn's company, Flynn Intel Group, received secret payments from the Turkish government late in 2016.

Mr. Flynn is at the centre of suspicions about a possible involvement of Russian.

Mueller's team, investigating whether President Trump's campaign coordinated with Russian Federation to influence last year's election, have questioned witnesses close to the former three-star general about Flynn's work with firms tied to the Turkish government, the New York Times reported.

Flynn resigned after less than one month in office for failing to fully disclose the details of his December communications with the Russian ambassador in Washington to White House officials.

It's also an indication that despite President Donald Trump's repeated statements warning Mueller not to investigate his finances or those of his family and associates, the investigation is including a close examination of financial dealings.

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".

Flynn was Trump's national security adviser for less than a month.

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.
