"Our Committee has direct jurisdiction over the Presidential Transition Act, and it simply does not support withholding transition team emails from criminal investigators", Cummings said. "I haven't heard anything about this, any firing", Mnuchin told CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday morning.
"I know what he's doing", Rosenstein said.
Last week, lawyers representing the Trump presidential transition wrote to members of Congress accusing special counsel Robert Mueller of obtaining unauthorized access to tens of thousands of transition emails, including what they claim to be documents protected by attorney-client privilege. They also follow Mueller's removal of one of his investigators after learning he had exchanged text messages with an Federal Bureau of Investigation attorney that showed bias against then-candidate Trump.
After learning in March that Russian Federation investigators were seeking its records, Langhofer said he contacted GSA to get assurances that the transition's lawyers would be the conduit for the materials. In other words, the best bet right now is that, after catching up people guilty of various, extraneous crimes, the Mueller investigation will leave President Trump relatively untouched. "Nobody has said that in any way this impacted the election". But White House special counsel Ty Cobb told NPR's Tamara Keith that's not the case.
"There's no conversation about that whatsoever in the White House", Short said on "Meet The Press".
"You guys keep bringing that up", he added when pressed on the issue.
"As the WH has persistently said for months, there is no consideration being given to firing the Special Counsel with whom we continue to cooperate with the expectation of an appropriate and timely result".
Ted Lieu a Democratic representative for California accused Republican Senator John Cornyn of "partisan talk", when he suggested Mueller must "clean house of partisans" on social media.
The special counsel's investigation into Russian election meddling came under renewed fire last week with the release of biased, anti-Trump texts from an FBI agent previously assigned to the probe, Peter Strzok, who has since been reassigned.
The Special Counsel's office said: "We will decline to comment".
Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, tweeted his own concerns on Friday, saying, "I'm increasingly anxious Republicans will shut down the House Intelligence Committee investigation at the end of the month".
Fox News first reported the existence of the letter, following an Axiosreport about the emails having been obtained by Special Counsel's Office.
