Taxpayers footed a $32 million bill for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to carry out a Democrat witch hunt against President Donald Trump. What he and his band of angry Democrats didn’t count on was that U.S. Attorney William Barr would circle back and investigate members of his team. It appears they may have obstructed justice by suspiciously wiping the phones used during the Russia hoax to cover their tracks.
“So now we find out that the entire Mueller ‘hit squad’ illegally wiped their phones clean just prior to the investigation of them,” President Trump said. “Just like Crooked Hillary smashing her phones with a hammer & DELETING HER EMAILS!”
Trump’s remarks are not only on point, they demonstrate that Mueller’s angry Democrats understood that meager efforts to purge text messages and other digital files are not enough. Fired FBI agent Peter Strzok and his DOJ lover, Lisa Page, were able to initially conceal their texts about stopping Trump from reaching the White House. They also discussed an “insurance policy” to have him impeached.
The FBI hierarchy apparently crafted a 5-moth gap in text collection while the Strzok, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Page, and others misled a FISA judge to spy on the Trump Campaign. At the time, officials tried to blame “misconfiguration issues.”
Those text messages and many others were retrieved after the Inspector General investigated the Deep State operatives. The fact that a small group of FBI and DOJ officials conspired to create a phony Russian Collusion probe by leveraging a false opposition dossier stunned the country.
Senate Republicans are outraged that Mueller’s anti-Trump staff would use the same tactics that allowed Hillary Clinton to escape justice, with the help of disgraced ex-FBI chiefs Comey and McCabe. Reports indicate that as many as 27 Russia probe members “accidentally” deleted all of the data from their government-issued phones. Despite private-sector companies requiring authorization to erase information, Mueller allowed the partisan Democrats to delete at will. No one is buying the cover-up that this many “accidents” happened to the most scrutinized team of investigators in the country.
“It appears that Special Counsel Mueller’s team may have deleted federal records that could be key to better understanding their decision-making process as they pursued their investigation and wrote their report. Indeed, many officials apparently deleted the records after the DOJ Inspector General began his inquiry into how the Department mishandled Crossfire Hurricane,” Senator Chuck Grassley reportedly said. “Moreover, based on this new information, the number of times and the stated reasons for the deletions calls into question whether or not it was a widespread intentional effort.”
Senate Homeland Security Chair Ron Johnson has called upon the Inspector General Michael Horowitz to open an impartial investigation into the mass deletion of government data.
If nothing else, Team Mueller learned that burying incriminating evidence does not go far enough. To get away with criminal activity and treason, it’s necessary to illegally wipe devices clean the way Clinton did with her server. To date, the Russian origins investigation has resulted in one felony conviction for falsifying information. There may be a bombshell report and more arrests before the November election.
