Special Counsel Robert Mueller, appointed in May in the wake of Trump firing FBI Director James Comey, took over the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russians in that effort.
In recent weeks, Mueller's office sent a document to the White House that detailed 13 different areas that investigators want more information about.
Mueller also asked for any email or document the White House holds which relates to Manafort, the people briefed on the requests said.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office has interviewed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about President Donald Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey, according to people familiar with the investigation.
Of particular interest to Mueller's team are records of the meeting Trump had with Russian government officials in the Oval Office on the day after he fired Comey.
The fact that Mueller's team would speak with Rosenstein is not surprising given his direct involvement in Trump administration conversations that preceded the May 9 ouster and the evolving White House explanations of it.
Mueller, himself a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, ultimately reports to Rosenstein because Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the probe.
