Mueller unlawfully obtained emails, Trump transition team says”

A lawyer for President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE's transition team said Saturday that Robert Mueller's special counsel office obtained tens of thousands of emails from the Trump transition organization illegally, Reuters reports.

Reuters reports the president's lawyer went on to accuse Mueller's team, during their process of investigating Trump, of acquiring the emails with knowledge that the files were being wrongfully acquired, while also using "the materials in question, including portions that are susceptible to claims of privilege" despite not informing Trump for America.

A transition attorney sent letters Saturday to two congressional committees saying the General Services Administration had improperly provided the transition records to Mueller's investigators.

Mueller's probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to secure the USA presidential election has prompted a guilty plea from Flynn for lying about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the U.S.

Trump has consistently said there was "no collusion" with Russian Federation, an assertion he repeated Friday. But Trump for America considers the records private and privileged and not government property.

The transfer of transition documents is "unlawful conduct that undermines the Presidential Transition Act of 1963", the letter said, "and will impair the ability of future presidential transition teams to candidly discuss policy and internal matters that benefit the country as a whole".

In the Axios report, the outlet stated Mueller had gotten a hold of "many tens of thousands" of emails relating to Trump's transition team.

The Trump transition alleges that the handover was done by "career staff at the General Services Administration" and suggested that those employees may have had political motives.

Mueller's investigation has produced four criminal charges so far, including charges to which Flynn has agreed to plead guilty. According to those familiar with the transition group, a top GSA official informed Trump for America last June that any request from Mueller's office would be referred to the transition. Several high-level Trump advisers sometimes used other email accounts to communicate about transition issues between Election Day and the inauguration.
