Trump officials demand Mueller return thousands of emails

Trump officials demand Mueller return thousands of emails”

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNN: "I haven't heard anything about any firing, but we have to get past this investigation".

"I don't have any reason to believe the President is going to do that", Mnuchin later said, adding, "but that's obviously up to him".

The Trump attorney also argued that Mueller's office has "extensively used the materials in question" during its investigation even though its prosecutors were aware some of the materials were subject to claims of attorney-client privilege and other protections.

After learning in March that Russian Federation investigators were seeking its records, Langhofer said he contacted GSA to get assurances that the transition's lawyers would be the conduit for the materials. Numerous emails that Mueller's investigators have now include national security discussions about possible Trump worldwide aims as well as candid assessments of candidates for top government posts, said those familiar with the transition. "Nobody has said that in any way this impacted the election". Trump campaign adviser George Papadoupolos and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, both for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about their conversations with Russians.

At issue is how the special counsel obtained the materials.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Marc Short, White House director of legislative affairs, said Sunday in separate interviews that they were unaware of any such discussions.

Haley went on to say that there have been "great negotiations" and that they will continue to do that. "So when we see it, we call them out on it".

"As the White House has repeatedly and emphatically said for months, there is no consideration at the White House of terminating the special counsel", Cobb said. "We've continued to cooperate at every single possible way with that investigation".

The special counsel's investigation into Russian election meddling came under renewed fire last week with the release of biased, anti-Trump texts from an FBI agent previously assigned to the probe, Peter Strzok, who has since been reassigned. "The president's lawyers have said they want to fully comply with special counsel Mueller's investigation, so it is odd that they now suggest they would have withheld key documents from federal investigators".

Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, tweeted his own concerns on Friday, saying, "I'm increasingly anxious Republicans will shut down the House Intelligence Committee investigation at the end of the month".

But late Saturday, another GSA official present for the conversation told Buzzfeed News that there was nothing improper about the disclosure of the emails to Mueller's team.

On Friday, the President was asked by a reporter if he thought Mueller's team was biased. It'll be bigger and better than ever, but it is very sad when you look at those documents, and how they've done that is very, very disgraceful, and you have a lot of angry people that are seeing it.
