Republicans demand answers on Mueller
team wiping phones, suggest 'anticipatory
obstruction of justice'

Original Article

Congressional Republicans demanded answers on Friday as to whether there “was a widespread intentional effort” to wipe the mobile devices of multiple people on former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team during the Russia probe, and suggested this 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—all before the Justice Department inspector general’s office could review the devices.

So when do these corrupt clowns get arrested at home at 5-6AM with CNN filming it and broadcasting it? Hmmm...??? Either that happens and they are charged like any joe smoe would be, or they need to have 'accidents' all of a sudden. Every last one of them, because rule of law is broken if it only applies to some and not to everyone.

Andrew Weissmann knew the danger of leaving proof of the swamp on the phones. Besides, he knew Hillary got away with it, so why wouldn't they? DOJ will never punish DOJ lawyers who worked on the Mueller Report team. Just a fact.

Do you think many of them might start to realize they've been played by the Democrats for the last 4 years yet? And, they better not buy into the idea that some lackey was supposed to turn them all in, on their behalf, and this was all a mistake, or accident, either. After all, it's the phone each of them were issued by the government, and they were responsible for.

Yep, if they wiped the phones there was a reason. Legitimate investigations would not have done that, so they are hiding something. Mueller indicted 36 people during the investigation. With the treatment of General Flynn I suspect the pressure was also applied the same way in Mueller's investigations. He was director of the FBI at one time and therefore he is probably Comey's mentor. Why did Sessions recuse himself. I'd like to know the reason for that.

Keep Deep State-protecting RINOs in the Senate and this is why Mueller & co. were not the least bit concerned about destroying evidence. Ooh, guess we will see Miss Lindsey get on Hannity and pretend to be upset and outraged The DOJ is as big a joke as the FBI. We need to recognize this. Whatever other crime they go up against makes no difference. The future of America depends on rooting out the corruption WITHIN the government.

Donald Trump won Pennsylvania in 2016 by a scant 44,000 votes out of 6 million cast. Democrats see Trump’s victory as a fluke, an anomaly. Trump was the first Republican to capture the state since 1996 and Democrats believed the state was trending in their direction.So 2016 was a rude awakening for Democrats. You would think they’d redouble their efforts to recapture the state in 2020. Indeed, the national party has been pouring staffers and money into the state, vowing not to repeat Hillary Clinton’s mistake of taking Pennsylvania for granted the last two weeks of the campaign.But Republicans have not been standing still and resting on their laurels.

William Shakespeare famously observed that “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” One of these players, Joe Biden, is currently trying out for the biggest role of his life. Unfortunately, he’s in danger of bombing the audition. He’s flubbing lines, breaking character, and occasionally forgetting the plot. His rambling, often incoherent speech in front of a supportive audience at a church in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on September 3 shows that he’s no longer playing the role of viable presidential candidate. Instead, he’s stumbled into the last scene of Shakespeare’s “strange, eventful history” — “second childishness and mere oblivion.”

The NFL is back. Spread the word. Thursday night’s season-opening matchup between the Chiefs and Texans attracted 19.3 million viewers between 8 and 11 p.m. That marks a 12.3% drop from last year’s ratings, which ended with an audience of 22 million. Deadline noted that the key 18-49 demographic pulled in a 5.2 rating, falling from last year’s 12.8 mark. It is likely that multiple factors played into the drop, including social justice messages, which have been present, while audience sizes have reduced across all sports in recent months.
