Senators Grassley and Johnson want to know, among things, what the Justice Department has done to recover missing phones and whether phones were reviewed for evidence of leaks. Republican Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Chuck Grassley of Iowa sent a letter to the Justice Department Wednesday asking for more information regarding missing phones used by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team during the Russian collusion investigation. The senators sent the letter after finding out the Justice Department "could not locate 59 of the 96 phones used by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team," according to Grassley's website.


The government Lost and Found Department must be understaffed.

Senators Grasseley and Johnson are the two most honest Senators we have, fighting the endless fight against the Deep State. It is insurmountable but they try.

It would have been more useful had these senators grilled Mueller and his goon squad when Republicans were in charge. Schumer and Pelosi run circles around McConnell and McCarthy and will continue to do so even if the House and Senate flip in 2022. Lindsey Graham continues to haunt Fox News even though he accomplished nothing when he was in charge of the Justice Committee. It’s long overdue to replace the Republican “leadership” with Republicans who learned how to govern from President Trump’s example.

Can they just go to the phone service supplier and find out which ones are still in service. Or they probably don't know the phone numbers. Honestly, the republicans are always a day late and a dollar short in everything! I'm glad someone finally thought of this, but geezloueez! Too bad they are the laughing stock of the world.

Poster 3, as a preface, I am disappointed with GOP leadership however, Poster 1 makes good points. The fight against the deep state is “insurmountable.” So is the fight with the corrupt media. Grassley and Johnson are trying. They deserve credit for that. If the GOP captures the House and Senate in 2022, Republican voters will demand a game of extreme hardball from GOP majorities. If Republican office holders play nice, I’m done with the Party. I think millions of other GOP voters feel the same.

Grassley and Johnson make it LOOK like they're doing something.

Their letter will go nowhere, stir up the base, and generate fodder to justify requesting donations... This was reported and NOTHING happened. Records Show Weissmann Special Counsel Team Erased 15 Phones After IG Requested Review… September 10, 2020 | Sundance Newly released records from a FOIA show the Weissmann/Mueller special counsel team “accidentally” wiped 15 iPhones of data early in 2018 after the phones were requested by the office of inspector general for review. Mueller’s lead investigator Andrew Weissmann accidentally wiped two phones himself; through a lengthy process of entering the wrong passcode several times over a period of three hours; removing data to show his activity during the special counsel. Weissmann claimed to have entered the wrong password (takes ten attempts) and that erased all the data. Greg Andre, a former deputy assistant attorney general in the Justice Department’s criminal division, made the same claim. LINK

Anyone heard from Mueller lately? Is he down at the memory care facility? That he has disappeared indicates that he was NOT up to the task and I suspect that Comey, Weissman, et al cabal, knew it when they pushed him as special prosecutor. They got to hide behind his reputation and run free with their dirty works.

I don't understand how 59 of 96 phones can just go "missing." They are government property, which means it should already be under investigation. Are we to believe the US government has no system for keeping track of which government employees are assigned which phones? That seems like a very basic responsibility. While our Senators are trying to get to the bottom of their "disappearance" where are America's investigative reporters? Where is 60 Minutes? Are we to believe there's no way of figuring out who last had custody of those phones? I don't understand how that could have happened, and I don't understand why our elected Senators have to "ask" DOJ bureaucrats for information about phones that it was responsible for keeping track of.

Vice President Kamala Harris has finally announced her intentions to visit the US-Mexico border after former President Trump made his plans to tour the border with Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Harris will be in El Paso, Texas, on Friday, June 25. She will be attended by Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, according to Politico. While countless media outlets and 56 GOP lawmakers have chastised Harris for not going to the border, despite being tasked with dealing with the border and immigration crisis by her boss President Joe Biden, it appears to have taken Trump's announcement to light a fire until the VP.

ROME — Pope Francis cracked down Friday on the spread of the old Latin Mass, reversing one of Pope Benedict XVI’s signature decisions in a major challenge to traditionalist Catholics who immediately decried it as an attack on the ancient liturgy. Francis reimposed restrictions on celebrating the Latin Mass that Benedict relaxed in 2007. The pontiff said he was taking action because Benedict’s reform had become a source of division in the church and been used as a tool by Catholics opposed to the Second Vatican Council, the 1960s meetings that modernized the liturgy. Francis issued a new law requiring individual bishops to approve celebrations of the old Mass
