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". Investigators and prosecutors use grand juries to examine evidence, question witnesses and subpoena documents to determine if a crime has been committed.

According to a subpoena, federal prosecutors in Virginia were investigating a deal between Flynn and Turkish businessman Ekim Alptekin as part of a grand jury criminal probe, Reuters reported in June. But the contract ended in mid-Novermber 2016, around the time that Flynn was announced as President Donald Trump's first national security adviser. "The White House favors anything that accelerates the conclusion of his work fairly". However, those familiar with the investigation should know this isn't the first grand jury his team has undertaken.

Mueller, who took over the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation when Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III recused himself, is apparently trying to determine if Flynn received secret payments from the Turkish government in the closing months of the 2016 election.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in a letter to businessman Bijan Kian that he also wants Kian to produce documents relating to Flynn's travels and ties to foreign businesses. Separately, the Pentagon's inspector general is investigating foreign payments Flynn accepted, and the House oversight committee has been looking into the security clearance issued to Flynn in early 2016.

Flynn resigned from the Trump administration in February after reports surfaced he had misled senior White House officials about his past conversations with Kremlin officials. In his interview with investigators, Kian said he had been friends with Flynn since 2008 and he was aware of Flynn's business travels and contacts.
