Mueller Scandal: Data from Dozens of Cell Phones Wiped Before DOJ Could Review

According to newly released documents, numerous cell phones from Robert Mueller's team during the Russia investigation were "accidently wiped"...yeah right.

But it's true, the phones were wiped before the Inspector General was able to review the devices and the data on them.

Fox News reported,

The records show at least several dozen phones were wiped of information because of forgotten passcodes, irreparable screen damage, loss of the device, intentional deletion or other reasons — and came before the DOJ’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) could review the devices.

Sean Davis from the Federalist said the following which sums up what the scandal is all about:

"Newly released DOJ records show that multiple top members of Mueller’s investigative team claimed to have ‘accidentally wiped’ at least 15 (!) phones used during the anti-Trump investigation after the DOJ OIG asked for the devies to be handed over. Federal records show that Mueller deputy Andrew Weismann claims to have ‘accidentally’ wiped, via wrong passwords at least 2 phones detailing his activity during the anti-Trump probe. James Quarles’ phone ‘wiped itself.’ Greg Andre also made the same wrong password claim."

"Mueller deputy Kyle Freeny similarly claimed that his phone was accidentally wiped after too many wrong passwords were entered. Same with Mueller deputy Rush Atkinson. At least a 12 other officials whose names are redacted also claimed to have ‘accidentally’ nuked their phones. The newly released DOJ records from the OIG investigation of corruption during the Mueller probe shows that a key tactic used by the Mueller team was to put the phones in airplane mode, lock them, and then claim they didn’t have the password."

"What are the actual probabilities of more than a dozen top Mueller officials all ‘accidentally’ nuking their phones or accidentally putting them in airplane mode, locking them, and ‘forgetting’ their passwords so the DOJ OIG couldn’t access and examine them? Negative 100,000%?"

Basically, we're seeing what Hillary Clinton did all over again. Do you remember this little moment when she refused to say whether or not she had her server wiped?
