Complaints about Mueller Obtaining Transition Emails, December 16, 2017

It is NOT NORMAL for the president’s legal team to assert that the special counsel obtained emails sent during the transition illegally and that the emails were subject to executive privilege. Transition team members signed agreements that specifically state that they have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding the emails, and executive privilege cannot be asserted until the president is actually the president, not the president-elect.
