The Justice Department turned over a host of documents to special counsel Robert Mueller, including internal correspondence regarding Attorney General Jeff Sessions' resignation attempt, ABC News is reporting.

Also included in the stash was DOJ-White House correspondence surrounding the ouster of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, ABC News reports.

Mueller's team interviewed Sessions two weeks ago.

President Donald Trump reportedly asked for Sessions' resignation last May, got it, but then rejected it at the advice of his own counsel, worried about the optics in the wake of Trump's dismissal of former FBI Director James Comey.

Now the special counsel has that correspondence, ABC reports.

The cache of documents turned over to Mueller also includes internal communications regarding the firing of Comey, an episode that includes Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the White House.

The special counsel also has solicited information from former Justice Department officials about their tenure there, ABC reports.
