An official of Trump's transition confirmed the laywer's internal order sent Thursday. Mr. Trump's lawyer has accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation of leaking material.

The transition order came the same day that Vice President Mike Pence's confirmed that he had hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe.
