Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team will not be investigated by the House Oversight Committee for allegedly obtaining some emails in his Russia probe illegally, Fox News reported Sunday.

A lawyer with the president’s transition team on Saturday sent a letter to the committee requesting they look into the “unauthorized sharing of private and transition emails with the Mueller team,” saying Mueller should not have been able to obtain those emails from the period between Trump’s 2016 election victory and his inauguration on Jan. 20 without consent.  

“The central issues raised are fact-specific legal issues which involve issues of privilege, waiver … standing to assert claims of privacy, expectations of privacy and the reasonableness thereof, third-party consent … among other issues,” a committee spokeswoman told Fox.

Mueller’s team has denied the allegations of impropriety.

“When we have obtained emails in the course of our ongoing criminal investigation, we have secured either the account owner’s consent or appropriate criminal process,” said Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller’s office.

The federal General Services Administration provided Mueller with the batch of emails.

Trump, when asked about the emails Sunday said, "Not looking good. It's not looking good. It's quite sad to see that. My people are very upset about it. I can't imagine there's anything on 'em, frankly, because as we said, there's no collusion. There's no collusion whatsoever. A lot of lawyers thought that was pretty sad."
