"When we have obtained emails in the course of our ongoing criminal investigation, we have secured either the account owner's consent or appropriate criminal process". Members of the conservative media and some congressional Republicans have begun to systematically question Mueller's motives and credibility while the president himself called it a "disgrace" that some texts and emails from two Federal Bureau of Investigation agents contained anti-Trump rhetoric. The transition says it believes that Mueller's team has "made extensive use of the materials", though it doesn't provide specifics.
The letter states there were two other occasions where the Special Counsel's Office did not notify transition officials that their records had been requested or received.
"Up until the very end that was our understanding".
At first, the administration said it welcomed the Mueller investigation as a chance to "clear the air" and would cooperate fully. He even invited the Russians to hack into her system and retrieve the 30,000 missing emails so we could see them, too.
"The emails have a ".gov" domain because GSA was in charge of their security, he said.
Nahigian also emphasized that his organization has no official connection to the White House.
During a House Judiciary Committee hearing last week, Republicans slammed the special counsel's office over what they said was the Democratic-leaning bias of some of its key lawyers and investigators.
Fox News host Jesse Watters hosted a segment calling the investigation "crocked from the jump", suggesting to viewers that "we have a coup on our hands in America".
According to Axios, which broke the story Saturday, the transition emails contain "sensitive exchanges" on topics ranging from policy planning, potential appointments and views on senators who would be involved with confirming political appointees. He added there was a series of agreements between the transition and GSA for using its goods and therefore there was no expectation of privacy.
The special counsel's office also obtained at least one iPad as well as laptops and cellphones that were used by the transition, but prosecutors have assured the transition that investigators have not pulled emails and other data from those devices, Langhofer said.
In the letter, obtained by Politico, Langhofer calls the emails "private, privileged materials", not government property, and informs the committees of what he described as "unlawful conduct that undermines the Presidential Transition Act of 1963".
"The Special Counsel's Office has extensively used the materials in question, including portions that are susceptible to claims of privilege, and without notifying TFA or taking customary precautions to protect TFA's rights and privileges". Spokespeople for GSA didn't respond to AP's emailed requests for comment.
A spokeswoman for House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, of SC, said in a statement that the Trump transition email issues are "to be briefed by the parties (or others with cognizable legal claims and standing) and decided by the court - not Congress".
Not only that. In investigating the possibility of collusion, there's no better potential treasure trove of evidence than the emails Trump's team members were sending.
