The New York Times report said investigators want to know if that money was paid on behalf of the Turkish government, and whether payments were made to the businessman to keep secret the source of said money.

Investigators with special counsel Robert Mueller have asked the White House for documents related to former national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to a report Friday. Flynn's consulting business was paid $530,000 to handle a campaign against an opponent of the Turkish government.

The Times reports that the request is the first known instance of Mueller's office asking the White House for documents in the ongoing investigation into possible ties between Trump campaign officials and the Russian government.

Taking money from Turkey or any foreign government is not illegal.

A transcript of intercepted calls between Mr Flynn and Mr Kislyak revealed they had discussed USA sanctions imposed when former President Barack Obama concluded that Moscow had interfered in the USA election campaign.

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.

Witnesses interviewed by Mr Mueller's team claim two $40,000 payments from Flynn Intel Group to Inovo are being investigated as suspected bribes to Mr Alptekin.

Despite his mandate to look into allegations of President Donald Trump's collusion with Russian Federation, the counsel has lately been focusing on possible financial crimes of the president's team. 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.
