I can't find Trump's original tweet on his account, but here's a tweet with a screencap: https://twitter.com/MuellerSheWrote/...74166552821761

It wouldn't be the first time that groups jumped to spurious conclusions of wrongdoing based on cherry picked facts that don't represent the whole picture well - and the people who have been trying to delegitimize what was actually done by the Mueller investigation have a history of forwarding a set of almost identical failed claims related to Hillary's e-mails.

Among the reasons given was that people had forgotten their passcodes, there was irreversible screen damage or people had lost them.


Andrew Weissman, Mueller's deputy, 'accidentally wiped' his phone on two occasions after entering the wrong passcode too many times in March 2018, and lawyer James Quarles' phone 'wiped itself' without his intervention, the documents claim.

A phone belonging to FBI lawyer Lisa Page - who was caught exchanging anti-Trump texts with FBI agent Peter Strzok - had also been wiped by the time it was handed over.

I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!

All Russia Hoax Scandal information was Declassified by me long ago. Unfortunately for our Country, people have acted very slowly, especially since it is perhaps the biggest political crime in the history of our Country. Act!!!

Have a question....

We know that major sections of the Mueller report were redacted for various reasons... one such reason was to prevent interference with on-going criminal cases. (Over time, some of the redacted sections have been un-redacted, so I am not sure how much remained secret.)

With Trump engaging in pardon-palooza for his henchmen (YOU get a pardon! And YOU get a pardon!), does anyone know if that will affect any parts of the Mueller report? Since being pardoned means you can't be prosecuted, will they be able to release other sections of the report because people they could have investigated can't be charged anymore?
