Sen. Marsha Blackburn: Mueller’s Team Caught In A Coverup


This is big stuff folks.

All we hear from the left is that Donald Trump is a president of corruption.

But it’s Democrats who constantly hide evidence under the guise of an “accident.”

Remember Hillary Clinton’s tens of thousands of emails that “accidentally” got deleted?

Well now we find out that dozens of cell phones from investigators on Robert Mueller’s team “accidentally” wiped the cell phones used during the investigation.

And Senator Marsha Blackburn, a Republican, is fuming!

Fox News has the story:

The Obama administration’s Justice Department “got caught” after newly released records show dozens of cell phones from then-Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team were “accidentally wiped” during the Russia investigation, Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., said Saturday.

“This shows you why you have to investigate the investigators,” the Senate Judiciary Committee member told “Fox & Friends Weekend.”

“They got caught and now they are trying to execute a cover-up that nobody ever could have made this up,” she added.

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 — before the DOJ’s Office of Inspector General could examine the devices.

“People are saying this is so implausible,” Blackburn said. “How do you have 29 phones were 29 people forget their passwords? This is just ridiculous.”

Blackburn said she discussed the report with Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., recently at a GOP dinner in Williamson, Tenn.

Folks, if it smells like a cover-up and looks like a cover-up, it’s probably a cover-up.

It begs the question, what don't these investigators want us to see?

Probably that the entire Russia Investigation was a scam and it was simply the Deep State out to get Trump!

And don't think Republicans are about to let this one slide under the table.

In fact, CNN says that top Republicans are now calling for an investigation into the Mueller team:

Two top Senate Republicans are pressing Justice Department officials to investigate whether special counsel Robert Mueller's team violated federal record keeping laws during a probe by the Justice Department's watchdog into the FBI's Russia investigation.

Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Friday pointed to a recent Freedom of Information Act release from the Justice Department that shows at least 27 instances of phones assigned to Mueller's team being "wiped" or reset for various reasons, including 15 due to passcodes forgotten or being entered too many times.

In a letter to the Justice Department and FBI, Grassley questioned whether it was a "widespread intentional effort" given the "number of times and the stated reasons for the deletions." He demanded that DOJ turn over all phone records from the Mueller team and any recovered records to the committee.

Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson asked that DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz to investigate the matter and whether any wrongdoing occurred.

The Justice Department told CNN it was reviewing Grassley's letter. A representative for Mueller declined to comment.

According to the DOJ records released this week in response to a FOIA petition by Judicial Watch and reviewed by CNN, Andrew Weissmann, who was the top prosecutor on Mueller's team, is listed twice on separate dates. One record states: "AAW accidentally wiped cell phone -- data lost": a second states: "entered password too many times and wiped his phone."

CNN has reached out to Weissmann for comment.

Other users whose phones were marked as "wiped" include James Quarles, Rush Atkinson and Greg Andres. (The names of many of those with wiped phones are redacted.)
