Mueller team phones were wiped before being handed over to DOJ!

on . Posted in Patriot News Network

WASHINGTON (PNN) - September 12, 2020 - President Donald Trump has vented his fury following news that more than 15 phones belonging to the investigative team of then-Special Counsel Robert Mueller were wiped before they were handed over to the Department of InJustice (DOJ) to be examined for proof of potential bias.

In a string of tweets sent out Saturday morning, the Commander-in-Chief threatened that “a big price must be paid” for those specific actions and for the Mueller investigation more broadly.

He also accused Left-wing operatives of a history of cover-ups, referencing the thousands of emails allegedly wiped from Hillary Clinton’s server while she was working as Secretary of State.

In an initial tweet, Trump raged, “Alert! So now we find out that the entire Mueller ‘hit squad’ illegally wiped their phones clean just prior to the investigation of them, all using the same really dumb reason for this ‘accident’, just like Crooked Hillary smashing her phones with a hammer and deleting her emails!”

He followed up with a second tweet, which read, “It has now been determined that the Mueller Scam should never have been set up in the first place, there were no grounds. It was all an illegitimate Witch Hunt, and a big price must be paid. How different my life would have been if this fraud on Amerika was never committed!”

Last year, Mueller and his team were investigated by the DOJ for alleged bias in its pursuit of any proof that Trump or his regime colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

The investigation concluded that there was no bias but as part of it, Mueller’s team was told to hand over cell phones. Many had been wiped of their data.

The wiped phone information only emerged this week in newly released documents from the DOJ at the request of Judicial Watch, a conservative group.

Among the reasons given were that people had forgotten their passcodes, there was irreversible screen damage, or people had lost them.

Andrew Weissman, Mueller's deputy, accidentally wiped his phone on two occasions after entering the wrong passcode too many times in March 2018, and lawyer James Quarles’ phone wiped itself without his intervention, the documents claim.

A phone belonging to Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page - who was caught exchanging anti-Trump texts with FBI agent Peter Strzok - had also been wiped by the time it was handed over to investigators.

Attorney Greg Andres also had a phone that was wiped because of a forgotten passcode.

Records indicate that the phones of both Kyle Freeny and Rush Atkison were wiped accidentally after the wrong passcode was entered on too many occasions. 

Other officials had their names redacted but made claims that they unintentionally restored their phones to their factory settings, which deleted all information pertaining to communication.

One redacted person’s phone was in airplane mode, no passcode provided, data unable to be recovered, so it had to be wiped.

The Office of Inspector General opened the investigation into possible bias in the origins of the Russia investigation, determining that while there were “significant concerns” with how the investigation was conducted, the FBI did comply with policies when they launched the probe.

The report found that there was no intentional misconduct or political bias surrounding the probe’s launch and efforts to seek a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to monitor Carter Page, Trump’s former campaign adviser.

However, it did find that the FBI took part in a number of errors when in the application process. This included at least 17 significant inaccuracies and omissions in the Page applications.

Attorney General Bill Barr has publicly disagreed with Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s findings.

Prior to the 2016 presidential election, Page had exchanged anti-Trump texts with the ex-FBI head of counterintelligence Peter Strzok.

The texts were seized upon by Trump as evidence of alleged political bias.

Trump has long decried Mueller’s investigation into him as a baseless witch hunt, designed specifically to take him down.
