Trump Slams Mueller For ‘Illegally Deleting Evidence’ On Wiped Phones

President Trump on Wednesday claimed that special counsel Robert Mueller ‘illegally terminated’ texts between “The two lovers, the two pathetic lovers, those two lovebirds” Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

The two former FBI employees at the center of the agency’s early Trump investigation sent thousands of text messages to each other which revealed their extreme animus for the then-candidate Trump.

“Robert Mueller, they worked for him … they had texts back and forth … Mueller terminated them illegally. He terminated the emails, he terminated all of the stuff between Strzok and Page … He terminated them. They’re gone. That’s illegal. That’s a crime,” Trump said.

While Trump did not provide evidence for his claim, he was likely referring to a December report by the DOJ’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) which found that after he was fired from the Mueller probe, the special counsel’s office allowed Strzok’s phone to be wiped clean by the FBI before it was reassigned to another agent.

It strains credulity to imagine that the special counsel’s office would ‘accidentally’ allow Strzok’s iPhone to be reformatted after he was fired for exchanging biased text messages on it.

 

Page’s phone was similarly scrubbed.

 

Separately, the OIG recovered approximately 19,000 Strzok-Page texts from their Galaxy S5 phones. The messages span a “gap” in text messages between December 15, 2016 and May 17, 2017.

OIG digital forensic examiners used forensic tools to recover thousands of text messages from these devices, including many outside the period of collection tool failure (December 15, 20 I 6 to May 17, 2017) and many that Strzok and Page had with persons other than each other. Approximately 9,311 text messages that were sent or received during the period of collection tool failure were recovered from Strzok’s S5 phone, of which approximately 8,358 were sent to or received from PageApproximately 10,760 text messages that were sent or received during the period of collection tool failure were recovered from Page’s S5 phone, of which approximately 9,717 were sent to or received from Strzok. Thus, many of the text messages recovered from Strzok’s S5 were also recovered from Page’s S5. However, some of the Strzok-Page text messages were only recovered from Strzok’s phone while others were only recovered from Page’s phone. -OIG Report

In August 2016, Strzok and Page discussed an “insurance policy” in the event that Trump won the election which many believe to be in reference to operation Crossfire Hurricane – the DOJ’s counterintelligence investigation into Trump and his campaign.

I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he [Trump] gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.” wrote Strzok, adding “It’s like a life insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

In the home stretch of the 2016 US election, Strzok is fuming at Trump – texting Page: ” I am riled up. Trump is a f*cking idiot, is unable to provide a coherent answer.” He then texts “I CAN’T PULL AWAY, WHAT THE F*CK HAPPENED TO OUR COUNTRY (redacted)??!?!,” to which Page replies “I don’t know. But we’ll get it back.”

No wonder Strzok’s iPhone was allowed to be scrubbed!

Mueller will testify in front of two House committees on July 17 in an open setting.

  1. People thinks it doesn’t happen. Story: My son as a teenager was wild as hell. Alcohol, pills donated to him all of the time by an assistant coach since he was the starting QB and point guard. He went on a friends houseboat he had been on for years with his friend the same as the neighbors boats. One neighbor he even dived in at the docks which are over a hundred feet deep to save their dog. Was gone for 20 seconds but he loves animals. Anyway a couple more buddies showed up played video games on the friends houseboat for a couple hours. Two of the teenagers left, one had to go to work the other headed home. My son is as in the middle of a video game when they left and his friend disappeared. He finds the friend on the neighbors houseboat. My son picks up their dog and stands at the doorway. This is all on video, fact! The friend is getting pills out of a basket on the kitchen counter. My son says let’s go, you need to put it back. At the same time he’s talking to his girlfriend on the phone who is sitting in his mother’s office at work. The next day all hell breaks lose. The friend didn’t know the neighbor had installed cameras everywhere on the houseboat I hopes of catching this boys mom who he suspected. The man while stoned took the video to the district prosecuting attorney. All totaled he had a copy, the friends parents and uncle had a copy because he sat on an important board position in the county. The stoned husband is married to the stoned camera houseboat owner. In total four copies existed. By the time all was said and done the friend got placed on two year probation and record auto expunged If he did nothing else wrong for that period. My son got 5 years probation, had to pee in a cup for two years and after 5 years his record got expunged if nothing else. They called it a deferment I believe. They basically got nailed for trespassing and drugs were never mentioned. The reason my son got worse was all 4 copies of the video were never mentioned and disappeared. The district attorney’s husband is a coke head, the complaining parties husband is hooked on prescription pills and was proven by prosecutor. Nothing but a big mess. The two young men were the cleanest of the bunch including all spouses etc. My son had and his friend had broken the law so many times I find out later and finally get something from the law side of it. The problem was they had been going on and off this houseboat ever since they were eight years old. They dive into the lake off the top. Just attended a cookout the week before on the boat. When the pill head owner lost his fix, times changed fast. The politician boat owners husband and wife contacted us to apologize. Doesn’t matter, were in a shitty backwoods small town so we and he deserves it. $7000k to the lawyer and we’re out with a deal and no court date. Prosecuting attorney better pray to God I do not get terminal cancer. Is mueller and his team and DC compromised as to they would direct the narrative and investigation towards Trump to Mae him look guilty out of nothing. HELL YES! From local to national level our courts systems are all corrupt as hell. I don’t mean taking money, turning your head, I’m talking changing the story or tweaking to benefit the surrounding atmosphere and themselves or a buddy.

    • Yes ! There is A LOT OF CORRUPTION IN OUR LEGAL SYSTEMS ! I KNOW THAT FOR A FACT MYSELF !!! The COURTS NEED TO BE INVESTIGATED ! ESPECIALLY MUELLER !!!!
