Trump upset about email disclosure but not firing Mueller

24 Décembre 2017

He has repeatedly insisted in the past that there has been "no collusion" between his campaign and Moscow, and has referred to Mueller's investigation as a "witch hunt".

"My people are very upset about it".

On whether Mueller should have disclosed that they had obtained the emails, Loewentritt added, "That's between the Special Counsel and the transition team".

With Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into President Trump's alleged "collusion" with the Russians going nowhere, and the credibility of his Trump-hating FBI investigators in the toilet, the president would be more than justified if he chose to fire grand inquisitor Mueller, along with his fainthearted, recusing Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Mr Trump's lawyer, Ty Cobb, also denied the claim.

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.

Mild Christmas forecast for Australia
Melbournians should anticipate a "very different" Christmas compared to past year , according to Mr Narramore. Australia is set for a drama-free Christmas in terms of the weather after one of its warmest years on record.

"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", Carr said.

Mueller's team received those emails from the General Services Administration that had housed Trump's transition team. He implied that there seem to be conflicts of interest on the team, and said "There are plenty of F.B.I. agents and prosecutors who have not been politically involved on behalf of Democrats or overtly critical of the president that can serve in this important investigation", according to NYT. The president claimed the email dump - which was provided to Mueller by the General Services Administration - was "not looking good" for the Russian Federation probe as he continues to assert that there was "no collusion".

Democrats say the president is trying to discredit Mueller's investigation into Russia's possible interference in the 2016 election.

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". Asked whether he was going to fire Mueller, the president told reporters: "No, I'm not". 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.

He said Mueller and his deputy, Andrew Weissmann, have a history of an aggressive style of handling cases, with the latter being accused of "prosecutorial overreach" by critics of the Enron scandal's proceedings. Officials with Trump for America learned last week that GSA officials had turned over the cache of emails to Mueller's team.
