Well this is going to be fun, but it also might be very dangerous for the investigation.
And here it is Ã¢ÂÂ probably the reason Trump and his defenders have been on a tear against the investigation. https://t.co/IoTH6Pliut

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has obtained “many tens of thousands” of Trump transition emails, including sensitive emails of Jared Kushner, transition team sources tell Axios.
- The emails include 12 accounts, one of which contains about 7,000 emails, the sources said.
- The accounts include the team’s political leadership and the foreign-policy team, the sources said.
How it happened: The sources say Mueller obtained the emails from the General Services Administration, the government agency that hosted the transition email system, which had addresses ending in “ptt.gov,” for Presidential Transition Team.
The twist: The sources say that transition officials assumed that Mueller would come calling, and had sifted through the emails and separated the ones they considered privileged. But the sources said that was for naught, since Mueller has the complete cache from the dozen accounts.
Interesting this story comes out now. Trump is obviously planning to fire Mueller, but now that he knows Mueller has 10’s of thousands of emails from the transition, and you know there has to be some really weird shit in there, does he risk someone on Mueller’s team leaking the juicy stuff?
Once again, Trump playing checkers and Mueller playing 3 dimensional chess.
