GSA General Counsel Gave Trump Transition Team Communications to Mueller (UPDATED)
Richard Beckler was General Counsel of the General Services Administration.
Richard Beckler died on September 25, 2017.
The GSA promised Trump Transition Team officials that their communications on phones and laptops would be safe with the General Services Administration (GSA).
Then in September 2017, during Beckler’s absence, the GSA handed all of the Transition team’s communications over to Dirty Cop Mueller.
Now the Transition Team is demanding an investigation on the illicit deep state transfer of information to Mueller.
Update: The Mueller team believed they had authority for these documents.
The Trump Transition team is very upset with this development.
The Daily Beast reported:
The Trump transition team may demand an investigation after tens of thousands of emails were handed to the Mueller probe without consent or warrants.
At the time, it was one of the more controversial moments of Robert Mueller’s probe: Late last year, news broke that a federal agency turned over tens of thousands of private emails of Trump transition team officials to the special counsel’s team—without a warrant, and without getting the officials’ permission.
Now, according to communications reviewed by The Daily Beast, the transition team is fighting back. They are threatening to call for an inspector general’s investigation of the General Services Administration (GSA), which gave the emails to Mueller, and to potentially try to have officials there sanctioned by the D.C. Bar.
The transition team also charges that the GSA is trying to cover up the involvement of controversial FBI agent Peter Strzok in the allegedly illegal seizure of their emails. A lawyer for the transition team wrote that Strzok “played a larger-than-previously known role in unlawfully seizing our client’s records.”…
…According to the transition team communications reviewed by The Daily Beast, the GSA’s then-General Counsel Richard Beckler assured the transition team that it was merely housing the materials, and that any communications would be locked securely away from prying eyes.
