An Axios report claims that sources released information suggesting that Mueller and his team had obtained “many tens of thousands” of Trump transition team emails. The emails obtained span across 12 accounts, and included emails of Jared Kushner, a current senior adviser to the President.
One source stated:
“Mueller is using the emails to confirm things, and get new leads,”
The emails are said to contain messages in regards to potential meeting appointments, and other sensitive information regarding discussions about senators and Trump nominees. The sources stated that Mueller and his team obtained the emails from the General Services Administration, which was responsible for hosting the transition teams emails.
The counsel for the transition team, Kory Langhofer, responded with a letter to congressional committees about the legality of how the emails were acquired.
One part of the letter read:
“career staff at the General Services Administration … have unlawfully produced [transition team] private materials, including privileged communications, to the Special Counsel’s Office.”
The letter also claims that Mueller and his investigation team violated the 4th amendment with unlawful search and seizure, and that some of the information obtained has been leaked to the press by unknown means.
Thus far, Mueller’s office has declined to comment.
