The Times is reporting that Mueller recently asked the White House for documents related to Flynn, the first known instance of Mueller's team asking the White House to hand over records.
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.
Although it is not seeking an injunction, this request, if its existence is confirmed, would be a new signal that the investigation led by Mr. Mueller is growing in power.

Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says at a White House briefing Tuesday that, "The president had no knowledge of the story". Wallace also said that Fox has "no evidence that Rod Wheeler was misquoted".
A grand jury is a kind of chamber of education composed of citizens who deliberate in closed session to determine whether the evidence presented by the prosecutor can give rise to a charge.
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".
Mr Flynn, a former lieutenant general in the U.S. army, failed to register as a foreign agent when Flynn Intel Group signed a $600,000 contract with Mr Alptekin's Dutch company Inovo BV in August 2016. 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. But the contract ended in mid-Novermber 2016, around the time that Flynn was announced as President Donald Trump's first national security adviser.
Since Flynn's payment acceptance occurred during the 2016 presidential campaign, during which he advised Trump, both the grand jury and Mueller's probe are trying to discern whether or not it was illegal.
