A Committee spokeswoman told Fox News that the most important questions included in the request — and in a letter from attorney Kory long should Hofer–,“ ruled the court . . . it is not the Congress.”
“The Central questions are fact-specific legal questions, the problems of privilege waiver … to the assertion of claims concerning the expectations of privacy and the adequacy of third-party consent … among other things,” the spokeswoman said.
Langhofer Congress “to take immediate action asked, the future presidential transitions, the embezzling of your private records by public authorities, in particular in the context of sensitive investigations intersect with political motives.”

He wrote that the GSA passed the “tens of thousands of E-Mails” to Miller’s probe without a “notice” on the transition.
He also said the Congress, in the letter, GSA’s actions “affect the ability of the future presidential transition team is open to politics and internal Affairs to discuss the use of the country as a whole.”

The records included E-Mails sent and received, the of 13 senior trump card, transition officials. Among the officials, the used transition E-Mail accounts was the former National security Advisor, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements to FBI agents and is in January now, the cooperation with Müller ‘ s investigation.
“We understand that the special counsel ‘ s office, in consequence of extensive use of the materials you received from the GSA, including materials that are susceptible to claims for privilege,” Langhofer wrote. He added that some of the records that were made by the special counsel’s office of the GSA”, leaked to the press by unknown persons.”
He said the special counsel’s office also received laptops, mobile phones, and at least one iPad of the GSA.
Trump for America, the nonprofit organization that facilitates the transition between former President Barack Obama to the President’s trump card is.
The GSA, an Agency of the government of the United States, provided the transition team with office and hosted E-Mail Server.
“If we have received E-Mails in the course of our ongoing criminal investigation, we secured the account of the consent of the owner, or the corresponding criminal process,” Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel ‘ s office, told Fox News.
In an interview with BuzzFeed News on Saturday evening, GSA Deputy Counsel Lenny Loewe occurs denied Langhofer claim that then-GSA General Counsel Richard Beckler had promised that all of the requirements for the transition team of records would be “forwarded to the legal Department of the” trump card for America.
Loewe also occurs transition team, said members were not warned that the information is “held in a law enforcement” investigation, and “no expectation of privacy can be assumed.”
(Langhofer letter notes that Beckler “was hospitalized and incapacitated in August.” He died in the following month.)
Loewe also occurs told, the GSA has proposed that Müller will issue the team an arrest warrant or a summons for the transition team materials, but the special Prosecutor decided that a letter with the request, which would be sufficient for the materials.
