The fourth-rate political satire that we are apparently doomed to live in introduces an absurdly ironic plot twist:
An organization that was part of President Trump’s transition team claimed Saturday that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III improperly obtained a trove of transition emails as part of the inquiry into Russian influence in the 2016 election and other matters.
The batch of emails totaling thousands of pages of communications was improperly provided to Mueller by the federal General Services Administration, the organization claimed in a letter delivered to congressional investigators.
“This morning we sent a letter to Congress concerning the unauthorized sharing of private and transition emails with the Mueller team,” lawyer Kory Langhofer said in an interview.
Details of the letter and the allegations from the transition organ known as Trump for America were first reported by Reuters.
The letter from Langhofer, who was counsel to Trump for America, alleged that career employees of the GSA improperly provided privileged communications to investigators working for Mueller.
The material included tens of thousands of emails, the organization alleged.
Sounds like a firing offense.
