Michael Flynn made a flurry of headlines Friday and Saturday, the most pressing of which was a New York Times report that investigators working for Robert Mueller asked the White House for documents related to the ex-national security adviser.

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 past year. Mueller is attempting to determine whether the Turkish government was behind any of that money.

Mueller's team has asked the White House for documents related to Flynn's lobbying and questioned witnesses about whether he was paid by the Turkish government, according to a report from The New York Times.The document request was not a formal subpoena, the newspaper has reported. His potential failure to register as a foreign agent could also carry a felony charge.

They have sought related documents from the White House and have asked related information from witnesses during interviews, a significant development in the Russian Federation investigation.

Inovo BV signed the $600,000 contract with Flynn Intel Group to fund a propaganda campaign against Mr Gulen, but in the end only paid $530,000 when it failed to produce a negative video about the Turkish exile and carried out unsatisfactory research.

On Thursday, Mueller seated a grand jury, meaning his probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is growing.

Flynn was President Donald Trump's national security adviser for just 24 days, but he has become one of the central figures in the investigation of possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump presidential campaign.
