MUELLER RECORDS OFFICER TOTALLY WIPES ANTI-TRUMP FBI AGENT’S PHONE, CAN’T REMEMBER IF IT HAD TEXTS ON IT
In a complete report issued earlier this month, the Division of Justice’s inner watchdog blamed a technical glitch for a swath of lacking textual content messages between anti-Trump ex-FBI officers Peter Strzok and Lisa Web page — and revealed that authorities telephones issued by Particular Counsel Robert Mueller’s workplace to Strzok and Web page had been wiped utterly clear after Strzok was fired from the Russia probe.
Strzok — who in August 2016 texted Web page about an “insurance coverage coverage” within the occasion Trump received the election and who secretly mentioned a “media leak technique” in regards to the Russia probe — was faraway from Mueller’s staff in late July 2017 after the FBI found he had been sending anti-Trump textual content messages. He despatched lots of these messages to Web page, with whom he was engaged in an extramarital affair.
“All these texts from Strzok and Web page — deleted?” Giulani requested. “After they discover out that Strzok is texting that he hates Trump, that he will get him and cease him — and that if he cannot cease him, he has an ‘insurance coverage coverage’ to get him out of workplace. I consider Mueller is the insurance coverage coverage to get him out of workplace. I am not simply saying that — Strzok was his first investigator.”
The DOJ’s Inspector Normal (IG) stated that, with assist from the Division of Protection, it was capable of uncover hundreds of lacking textual content messages written by Strzok and Web page and despatched utilizing their FBI-issued Samsung telephones from December 15, 2016, by means of Could 17, 2017, “in addition to lots of of different textual content messages exterior the hole time interval that had not been produced by the FBI as a consequence of technical issues with its textual content message assortment device.”
However when the IG went searching for the iPhones individually issued to Strzok and Web page by the Mueller staff, investigators have been informed that “[Strzok’s] iPhone had been reset to manufacturing unit settings and was reconfigured for the brand new consumer to whom the gadget was issued.”
The data officer on the particular counsel informed the IG that “as a part of the workplace’s data retention process, the officer reviewed Strzok’s DOJ issued iPhone” on September 6, 2017, and “decided it contained no substantive textual content messages” earlier than it was wiped utterly — simply weeks after Strzok was fired from Mueller’s staff for anti-Trump bias and sending anti-Trump textual content messages.
INSIDE STRZOK AND PAGE’S ‘MEDIA LEAK STRATEGY’ AT THE FBI
“The one that decided what to get rid of was Mueller’s data officer, who says there was nothing of curiosity there,” Giulani stated. “It is onerous to consider Strzok and Web page out of the blue determined, ‘We’re not going to textual content anymore about Donald Trump.’ They gave the impression to be obsessively and compulsively texting about him. I do not know what sort of lovers they have been in the event that they have been texting about that on a regular basis. It is ridiculous.”
Nonetheless, whereas he questioned why Strzok and Web page’s Mueller-issued telephones have been wiped, Giuliani didn’t dispute the FBI’s competition technical glitch had affected Strzok and Web page’s separate FBI-issued Samsung telephones.
“Texts solely final… for a short while… not like emails,” Giuliani stated. “I do that work, cybersecurity work. Texts are onerous to get. That is reliable.”

Requested whether or not he expects Mueller’s ultimate investigative report back to be issued in February, Giulani prompt he is not holding his breath.
HOW THE FBI INCORRECTLY SUGGESTED TO FISA COURT IT HAD MORE EVIDENCE THAN IT REALLY DID TO SURVEIL TRUMP AIDE
“Oh gosh, almighty — first he was popping out in March, then in Could — we’re now in fourth diploma of separation from the non-crime of collusion,” Giulani stated. “We went to the non-crime of obstrution of justice, that did not work out for them. Then he moved on to marketing campaign contributions, which by the best way usually are not violative of the marketing campaign finance legislation. After which they’re taking a look at now the Russia tower. They need to go to Moscow. There isn’t a tower. It did not get constructed. It did not get past a nonbinding letter of intent, which is sort of a want.”
Giuliani maintained that Trump was “as stunned as I used to be” in regards to the WikiLeaks disclosures of hacked emails from the Democratic Nationwide Committee (DNC) throughout the 2016 presidential marketing campaign, and emphasised that the underlying emails weren’t doctored.
What harm the Hillary Clinton marketing campaign, Giuliani stated, was that the emails revealed that her marketing campaign had obtained illicit inside data from the DNC to assist her safe the nomination.
“The factor that basically bought Hillary, isn’t that it was revealed, however that it was true — she actually was dishonest on the debates, she actually was getting the questions from Donna Brazile beforehand, she actually did screw Bernie Sanders — each little bit of that was true.”
He added a private message to Mueller: “My ultimatum is ‘put up or shut up, Bob.’ I imply, what do you could have? There are those that consider you don’t have something on collusion. And, by the best way, even in case you did it’s not against the law – so what the heck are you doing? Do you could have something that reveals the President of the USA was concerned in a conspiracy to hack the DNC with Russia? In fact you don’t. For those who do, put out a report, or give it to the Justice Division, allow them to evaluation it, be sure that it’s not categorized or no matter, put out a report. We’re able to rebut it. I’ve had the report prepared for 2 months.”
