Special counsel Robert Mueller asked the White House to turn over documents related to several of President Trump's actions since he assumed the presidency in January, according to a report.
Mueller, who is leading the federal investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, asked the White House for records related to Trump's firings of former national security adviser Mike Flynn and former FBI Director James Comey, as well as a May meeting in the Oval Office with numerous Russian government officials, according to the New York Times.
Flynn was fired in February after he lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his communications with then-Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak. Comey was fired in May.
During the meeting with Russian officials, which occurred the day after Comey was fired, the president called the former FBI director "crazy, a real nut job," and said he faced "great pressure" because of the Russia probe. That pressure, Trump said, was relieved with Comey's termination.
In the last few weeks, Mueller and his team have sent the White House a document outlining 13 areas investigators are seeking additional information on.
Ty Cobb, a White House lawyer, declined to comment to the New York Times about Mueller's inquiries.
"We can't comment on any specific requests being made or our conversations with the special counsel," he said.
