Vastavam web: President Donald Trump says he is not considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller, but that didn’t stop him from adding to the growing conservative criticism of Mueller’s acquisition of thousands of emails sent and received by Trump officials before the start of his administration.The disclosure came in a letter sent to two congressional committees by Kory Langhofer, general counsel of Trump’s still-existing transition group, Trump for America.Langhofer asserted the GSA improperly provided the transition records to Mueller’s team, which he said has been “actively using” the emails. In the letter, Lanhofer also contends that the disclosure by GSA was “unauthorised,” and said the transition organisation considers the documents private and privileged and not government property.
While conservatives have been critical of Mueller’s probe of Russian activities during the 2016 campaign, Trump said Sunday afternoon that he has no plans to fire Mueller.The tens of thousands of emails in question pertain to 13 senior Trump transition officials. Many of the emails that Mueller’s investigators have now include national security discussions about possible Trump international aims as well as candid assessments of candidates for top government posts, said those familiar with the transition.
They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the records’ sensitivity.According to Langhofer, the assurance was made by then- GSA General Counsel Richard Beckler, who was hospitalized in August and has since died. A copy of the letter was obtained by the AP.
