Fox & Friends host outraged that Mueller legally obtained all Trump transition emails

Brian Kilmeade:   “Now all of a sudden they go to the GSA and they say, hey, do me a favor, give me everybody's [emails]. And the GSA does without checking with the Trump administration.”

From the December 18 edition of Fox News' Fox and Friends:

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Meanwhile you've got a bunch of people who had been working on the president's transition team. They're upset that they say Robert Mueller illegally got a bunch of email. He says he followed the law. Nonetheless, the sooner they get the investigation over the better for the White House. People inside the White House feel he is not going to fire Robert Mueller. 

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): And just so you know, when they had the transition, they go -- given the computers and everything during the transition, they said thank you very much. Now all of a sudden to this point if Robert Mueller needed somebody's email, he would say I need somebody's email, and they would give it to them. So now all of a sudden they go to the GSA and they say, hey, do me a favor, give me everybody's. And the GSA does without checking with the Trump administration. They say, wait a second you just can't grab all the transitions -- so if somebody -- if Ivanka emailed and said, “Don't forget to pick up such and such milk before soccer practice,” that's all on Robert Mueller's? 

DOOCY: But the problem is it's a government database. They're all government emails. So the government is entitled to it he's got an investigation, and the GSA said OK. 

KILMEADE: Well, the Trump people said no. That's not what the assurances --

DOOCY: They don't like it. 

KILMEADE: They don't like it. They even got assurances that wasn't the case.
