Donald Trump-Russia investigators ask White House for documents about Michael Flynn

Special counsel Robert Mueller is questioning witnesses about whether former Trump administration national security adviser Michael Flynn was secretly paid by the Turkish government during the final months of the 2016 presidential campaign, according to The New York Times.

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's business, Flynn Intel Group, worked with a Turkish-American businessman who paid the company $530,000 to "discredit an opponent of the Turkish government who has been accused of orchestrating last year's failed coup in the country".

Financial entanglements of former national security advisor became the focus of the ongoing investigation into possible collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 election on Friday night.

The June 8 national poll found Merkel challenges Trump as leader of free world; voters oppose GOP health care bill nearly 4-1. The nationwide poll of 1,125 voters was taken from July 27 to August 1; it has a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.

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".

Taking money from Turkey or any foreign government is not illegal. Trump has publicly stated in the past that he believes Mueller should restrict his investigation on Russia's involvement in the election and not expand into his or his associates' finances.

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.
