Trump says he's not planning to fire Robert Mueller

The president and paranoia: Letters

The emails pertain to 13 senior transition officials and many include national security discussions about possible Trump worldwide aims.

In addition to the emails, CNN reported, Mueller's team was also able to secure access to "transition laptops, cell phones and at least one iPad" without a subpoena.

The transition sources said they were surprised about the emails because they have been in touch with Mueller's team and have cooperated.

The investigation involves whether the Trump campaign helped out in Kremlin-directed cyberhacking efforts to helped the president win the election.

The Trump attorney added that, during the conversation, Van Grack "failed to disclose the critical fact that undercut the importance of his representations, namely, that the Special Counsel's Office had simultaneously received from the GSA tens of thousands of emails, including a very significant volume of privileged material, and that the Special Counsel's Office was actively using those materials without any notice to TFA". Four people with connections to Trump's 2016 presidential campaign have so far been charged. He did not name the transition officials who used the devices. 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.

A lawyer for TFA, who spoke on background because he was not authorized to speak to media, told NPR it found out on December 13 that GSA officials turned over the emails to the Special Counsel in September.

President Trump's legal counsel Ty Cobb says the president is not going to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, in response to a "rumor" that Trump will dismiss Mueller this week.

Florida Hospital has released 20 patients after being treated for injuries following a semi versus school bus crash. The truck slammed into the back of the bus, pushing it off the road and causing it to flip onto its side.

"I was at dinner last night with the President and Vice President".

Mr Beckler was hospitalised in August and has since died.

Ken Nahigian, the Trump transition's executive director and trustee, said in an interview that GSA's decision to share the emails with Mueller's office would have a long-term detrimental effect for future transitions. "Meanwhile, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who sits on the House intelligence committee, dismissed the claim outright as a transparent ploy: "'Private documents' on a US Government, public email system?" he wrote on Twitter Saturday. Trump has called the allegation a "witch hunt" by Democrats.

During a House Judiciary Committee last week, Republicans slammed the special counsel's office over what they said was the Democratic-leaning bias of some of its key lawyers and investigators.

"Why are Trump's lawyers upset that Mueller obtained transition emails from a government agency?"

"Of course Mueller obtained emails from a third party", Renato Mariotti, a former federal prosecutor, said, also on Twitter.
