How skeptical should we all be that Robert Mueller’s Russian collusion witch-hunting team destroyed all of its records from the investigation right after Attorney General Bill Barr started investigating the origins of the Democrat Party’s little conspiracy theory? Color me skeptical!
Right after AG Barr announced that the Inspector General was going to probe the origins of Obama’s Crossfire Hurricane operation, Mueller’s team wiped 31 of their phones that had been used in the two-year probe. And no… that doesn’t mean that they wiped them, like, with a cloth.
Mueller’s team of witch hunters spent two years and had unlimited resources to try to run down some Russian collusion. They failed. They didn’t find a single American anywhere who had colluded with Russia, let alone someone involved with the Trump campaign who had colluded with Russia. Mueller found no collusion and no Russians, which are the two main ingredients when you’re looking for Russian collusion.
We found out after the Mueller Dossier exonerated President Trump that Mueller’s team actually knew there was no Russian collusion approximately 30 seconds after the investigation began. So, what were they doing for the next two years? I guess we’ll never know, since Mueller’s team literally destroyed all of their records when the Inspector General tried to look over their notes.
Why do we still put up with this excuse from former Obama administration officials? The dog ate my homework!
When the Republican-controlled House of Representatives learned that Lois Lerner’s office at the IRS had been denying non-profit status to Tea Party and Christian groups for years, specifically to help with Obama’s 2012 reelection, the excuse was:
“Well, gosh, we lost all of the email records! Funny thing, that. The email server that those records were on was accidentally dropped in a field and then a farmer ran over the server with his tractor. 70 times. Then, the remains of the server were loaded on a cargo plan and accidentally dumped somewhere over the Marianas Trench in the Pacific Ocean. I know, weird, right?!”
And the media’s response was: “I know, right?! Could have happened to anyone, really.”
The Operation Fast & Furious records? Accidentally shredded.
Hillary’s missing 30,000 emails? Accidentally wiped with Bleach Bit.
The moment after Inspector General Michael Horowitz started looking into the FISA abuses of Obama’s FBI lackeys, Mueller’s team “accidentally wiped” 31 phones.
If you’re curious, do a Google search on how to wipe all of the data off of your own smartphone sometime. Whether you’re using an Android, iPhone or some other type of phone, it’s a multi-step process to “wipe” the data off of it. It’s not something that you can do accidentally, by pushing the wrong button. It’s intentionally difficult to wipe the data off of a phone, because it’s an extreme action that you would never want to do by accident.
But Robert Mueller’s team accidentally did it totally by accident and not on purpose… 31 times? And I’m guessing that the Department of Justice’s protocol for wiping a phone is a bit more complicated than the process for all of us civilians.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) isn’t buying Mueller’s “The dog ate all of my records” excuse, either. He’s demanded that the Department of Justice now turn over all text messages from those 31 phones before September 25th. Grassley stated:
“Many officials apparently deleted the records after the DOJ Inspector General began his inquiry into how the Department mishandled Crossfire Hurricane. 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.”
Grassley knows that the records are out there somewhere in the federal bureaucracy (they should be, at least, based on how much the bureaucracy spies on everything we do). We’re supposed to be a government “of the people, by the people and for the people” in this country. That means we’re supposed to have a government that is open and transparent, and also accountable to us.
But the Obama administration never wanted to be accountable to us. Lois Lerner didn’t want to be accountable. Hillary Clinton didn’t want to be accountable. Robert Mueller didn’t want anyone checking over his work. It’s a tragedy from a historical perspective; we won’t have a full record or accounting of what went on during these years.
The truth was just too embarrassing for the Democrats, so the dog ate their homework.
