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.

According to the report, investigators questioned witnesses about whether Flynn secretly received payment from the Turkish government during the final months of US President Donald Trump's election campaign, on which he served as a senior adviser.

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.

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.

'Kevin Can Wait': Will killing Erinn Hayes' Donna help season 2 ratings?

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.

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".

But Mueller is reportedly looking into business dealings of Trump and his associates and whether Trump obstructed justice by firing former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. 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. He is also looking at whether Trump committed obstruction of justice by asking Comey to drop the investigation into Flynn.
