MSNBC: Trump Atty. Says GSA Unlawfully Released Trump Team Emails to Mueller

‘A top lawyer for the Trump transition team has accused a government agency of, quote, unlawfully providing Mueller thousands of e-mails exchanged between the president’s advisers during the transition’

EXCERPT:

BRZEZINSKI: "According to multiple reports, the president’s legal team will meet with special counsel Bob Mueller’s investigators this week to discuss the next steps in the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign. That meeting will come after the president's legal team raised new complaints about the investigation over the weekend. A top lawyer for the Trump transition team has accused a government agency of, quote, 'unlawfully providing Mueller thousands of e-mails exchanged between the president’s advisers during the transition.' Saturday’s letter from Trump for America argues that the general services administration which hosted the e-mails did not own or control the records it provided, alleging that the special counsel’s office has extensively used the materials in question, including portions that are susceptible to claims of privilege, and that they did not notify Trump for America or take precautions to protect rights and privileges."
