Exclusive Fox News A lawyer for the Trump presidential transition team is accusing Special Counsel Robert Muellers office of inappropriately obtaining transition documents as part of its Russia probe, including confidential attorney-client communications, privileged communications and thousands of emails.
In a letter obtained by Fox News and sent to House and Senate committees on Saturday, the transition teams attorney alleges unlawful conduct by the career staff at the General Services Administration in handing over transition documents to the special counsels office.
The transition legal team argues it could be a violation of the 4th Amendment which protects against unreasonable searches and seizures.
Kory Langhofer, the counsel to Trump for America, wrote in Saturday’s letter that the GSA did not own or control the records in question.
Langhofer said the special counsels office received tens of thousands of emails from the GSA as well as certain laptops and cell phones containing privileged materials.
The transition attorney said they discovered the unauthorized disclosures by the GSA on December 12th and 13th and raised concerns with the special counsels office.
