Lawyer: Mueller improperly obtained emails from Trump team

Lawyer: Mueller improperly obtained emails from Trump team Lawyer: Mueller improperly obtained emails from Trump team
Hannah Rogers | 24 December, 2017, 12:46

CNN reports that Mueller's team, for its part, is adamant that none of the emails obtained during the course of the investigation were obtained illegally-and the fact that they're even releasing a statement is a rare and significant move.

Deranged Trump resisters, it seems, are limited only by their very active imaginations.

The documents were provided to Mueller's team by the GSA in September in response to requests from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but the transition wasn't informed at the time, according to people familiar with the transition organization.

He claims the General Services Administration - the government agency responsible for helping facilitate a presidential transition - turned over transition-related emails and devices to Mueller's team without any notification.

"I haven't heard anything about this, any firing", Mr Mnuchin said, adding that it was "obviously up to" Mr Trump to make a final decision.

"As the WH has persistently said for months, there is no consideration being given to firing the Special Counsel with whom we continue to cooperate with the expectation of an appropriate and timely result". FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok was taken off the investigation after Mueller learned he had texted with senior FBI lawyer Lisa Page criticizing then-candidate Donald Trump throughout the campaign.

Although Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was doing a victory lap on the tax bill on the Sunday talk show circuit, he first had to field questions on CNN's State of the Union program about whether he believed Mr Trump would trigger the process to fire Mr Mueller.

"As we said, there's no collusion", Trump said, according to The Associated Press.

In a seven-page letter to congressional committee leadership, BuzzFeed News reported, Trump lawyer Kory Langhofer accused the GSA of lying to the transition team about who would handle future requests for the production of records and said they included privileged information.

The White House declined to comment to CNBC on Tuesday.

Mueller was appointed after Trump abruptly fired then-FBI director James Comey, who was leading an agency probe into the Russian Federation affair.

The special counsel's critics have seized upon the case of Peter Strzok, a senior Federal Bureau of Investigation agent whom Mueller removed from his team for sending text messages critical of Trump.

Mueller is investigating allegations of Russian interference in the last year's USA presidential election and collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell said: "This is another attempt to discredit Mueller as his #TrumpRussia probe tightens". The GSA itself denies Langhofer's claims that they had agreed to submit any requests to share emails directly to the Trump transition team before clearing them.
