President Donald Trump’s lawyer accused Special Counsel Robert Mueller of violating attorney client privilege in obtaining emails sent by Trump’s transition team in a letter sent to Congress Saturday.
Counsel to the transition team known as Trump For America, Kory Langhofer claims the General Services Administration, the government agency that possessed the transition team emails, turned them over to Mueller’s team before Trump’s lawyers were given the opportunity to review them and assert they should be protected under attorney client privilege.
“The materials produced by the G.S.A. to the special counsel’s office therefore included materials protected by the attorney-client privilege, the deliberative process privilege, and the presidential communications privilege,” Langhofer, Counsel to Trump For America, wrote in the letter, obtained by Politico.
