The transition team lawyer alleges that Mueller has obtained the the documents illegally.

But here's how Mueller got those emails, according to the picture of events emerging on Sunday: According to CNN, he simply asked the General Services Administration, which hosted the.gov domain on which the emails were stored, to hand them over.

Langhofer claimed that Lenny Loewentritt, deputy counsel for the GSA, was present for Beckler's conversations with the Trump transition's legal representation, and accused Loewentritt of "working with" the GSA staffers who gave Mueller the materials.

In other words, the transition team geniuses apparently did not consider the possibility that federal investigators could easily obtain emails they sent on federal government systems.

The letter, written by Kory Langhofer, counsel to the transition team known as Trump for America, Inc. Beckler died in September.
