Heres Why Muellers Seizure of Transition Emails Likely Violated the Law
Emails are private. The fact you use a server owned by a third party does not make them public. Your right to privacy is protected by the Bill of Rights in Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Congress set up a special email server for incoming Presidents during the “transition” time period between election and inauguration. Doing so did not convert the emails used by the transition team into public emails; indeed, Congress requires the emails be deleted within six months of the inauguration, are not considered public records, and the people using the emails believed them to be private. Special Counsel Mueller, through subterfuge, seized the emails of many Trump team members. That violated the law.
