Wiped Clean

Where Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) when you need him? Schiff, a congenital liar and man who suffers from Stage 4 Trump Derangement Syndrome, was the leader of a group of Democrats who insisted, INSISTED, that Donald Trump "obstructed justice" during the Mueller investigation of the Russian Collusion hoax. In fact, the Dems decided to use "obstruction" as the basis of their evidence-free impeachment (just as the government's focus should have been on a growing pandemic). As it is with most claims that come from the modern-day Democrats, their claims of obstruction were something else—projection.

When Robert Mueller staffed his investigative team, it was populated almost exclusively by lawyers who were Democrats, who contributed to HRC, and were otherwise left-leaning. But even they, much to the chagrin of the Dems, couldn't find a shred of evidence that connected Trump to Russian collusion. That leads to some interesting questions.

What were they doing for those two years, given that they knew Trump as innocent within a few months of the start of the investigation? Who were they talking to? Was there outside political influence on the Mueller team? What plans were they making to destroy Trump's presidency by other means?

We'll never know. Matt Margolis explains:

Several dozen phones belonging to members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion investigation team were wiped out for various reasons before the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General was able to review the devices. Congressional Republicans are looking to find out if there was a “widespread intentional effort” to conceal information from the inspector general and suggested that the apparent coordinated effort could amount to “anticipatory obstruction of justice.”

“The calls come after newly released records from the Justice Department showed that at least several dozen phones belonging to members of Mueller’s team were wiped of information because of forgotten passcodes, irreparable screen damage, loss of the device, intentional deletion or other reasons,” reported Brooke Singman at Fox News. “All before the Justice Department inspector general’s office could review the devices.”

It's inconceivable that a dozen professionals all wiped their phones by mistake or due to damage. One person—maybe. Two—possible. But over a dozen? But then again, the Mueller lawyers had Hillary Clinton as a role model. She deleted over 30,000 emails from her private server before the start of an investigation, and suffered no consequences whatsoever. 

Imagine for just a moment that Adam Schiff learned that members of the Trump administration had wiped their phones prior to a IG review of their work. All hell would break loose. The Dems's trained hamsters in the media would produce "bombshell" story after bombshell story. But since it was the Dem lawyers on Mueller's team who did the wiping—crickets.

This is yet another example that reinforces the notion that whenever the Dems make wild and wholly unsubstantiated claims concerning Trump—it's projection.
