Should Robert Mueller be arrested for obstruction of justice? Under his direction, damning evidence was destroyed to protect Hillary Clinton

(Natural News)

When special counsel Robert Mueller was first appointed more than a year ago, critics pointed out that there was no justification for it — that it was all political — because there was no indication of any crime. “Collusion” with Russia, if it even had happened, is not illegal.

Mueller raised eyebrows again when he brought prosecutors on board who had blown cases in the past by inventing evidence, such as the “corruption” case against former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska.

Critics chimed in again after Mueller hired a number of prosecutors with known connections to Democratic politicians including Hillary Clinton and President Obama, several of whom actually donated to their campaigns.

Throughout his investigation into alleged nefarious behavior surrounding POTUS Trump and his 2016 campaign, Mueller has done much to warrant the criticism he has received. And now he’s under fire again for something so obviously wrong it defies belief that he’s still able to continue his investigation.

As noted by Debra Heine at PJ Media, the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General could not recover text messages from the iPhones of fired FBI official Peter Strzok and his one-time paramour, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, during their time as members of Mueller’s special counsel team because they were scrubbed.

Fox News added that the iPhones had been given to Strzok and Page by Mueller but were then cleaned by a records officer after both were dismissed from the team, according to a new report from the DoJ IG’s office.

In regards to Strzok’s phone, investigators for the IG’s office were told that it “had been reset to factory settings and was reconfigured for the new user to whom the device was issued.” The records officer for the special counsel said she had “determined it did not contain records that needed to be retained,” and as such wrote in her records log, “No substantive texts, notes or reminders.” (Related: If Dems say acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker is biased, why didn’t they feel that way about Peter Strzok and Lisa Page?)

You can’t make this up

Quoting the report, Fox News noted further that the officer told the IG’s investigators that she did “not recall whether there were any text messages on” Strzok’s phone, though “she made an identical log entry for an iPhone she reviewed from another employee on the same day that she specifically recalled having no text messages.”

Heine writes:

In a phone call, Page told the special counsel’s office (SCO) after she left the team that she left her government-issued iPhone and laptop on a bookshelf at the office. The SCO located the laptop, but when the OIG asked for the iPhone on January 24, 2018, the SCO could not locate it.

It was finally located in early September 2018 and the OIG took custody at that time. The report states that on July 31, 2017, two weeks after Page left the special counsel, her iPhone was also wiped and restored to factory settings.

Her phone was not summarily reissued to anyone else within the agency. What’s more, no one within Mueller’s office or the Justice Management Division of the DoJ has a record of who took custody of Page’s iPhone and reset it, the report says.

“Office of the Deputy Attorney General told the OIG that the Department routinely resets mobile devices to factory settings when the device is returned from a user to enable that device to be issued to another user in the future,” the report notes.

In addition, the report says that a “technical glitch” led to a group of text messages between Strzok and Page to vanish.

You couldn’t make this stuff up if you were trying to write a Hollywood script for a political thriller. And yet somehow the American people are supposed to just swallow all of this without question.

Unfortunately, too many of us will, which is in large part why nobody has really been held accountable yet. Including Robert Mueller.

Hillary’s Dangerous Negligence over Benghazi — Again

Family Security Matters

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

 

Who cares if Hillary Clinton is convicted of a crime? What we ought to care about is if Ahmed Abu Khatallah is convicted of a crime.

Khatallah is the only person charged thus far in the attack on a shadowy U.S. government compound in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. Dozens of jihadists participated in the attack, during which four Americans, including U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens, were slain. Yet Khatallah has been singled out for prosecution. As I’ve previously detailed (here and here), the Obama Justice Department has filed an indictment that infuses evidence with politics: Trying to prove the terrorist conspiracy that actually occurred without refuting the Obama/Clinton fiction that the attack was a spontaneous protest ignited by an anti-Muslim Internet video.

That’s why there are worse jobs to have right now than defense counsel for a murderous jihadist.

Mrs. Clinton has spent the last few weeks learning that federal court is not the mainstream media. Because of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits brought by Judicial Watch, she and her top aides are finally being asked tough questions about conducting government business over a private communications system – a system that Clinton designed in order to hide her communications from public inspections, congressional inquiries, and judicial proceedings. We’ve thus learned that Team Clinton may have concealed government records, stored and transmitted classified information on private e-mail systems, and erased tens of thousands of government files.

If Mrs. Clinton thinks FOIA is a headache, wait until she sees what happens when a top government official’s reckless mass deletion of e-mails takes center stage in a terrorism prosecution of intense national interest. Federal criminal court is not the nightly news. There, mass deletion of files is not gently described as “emails a government official chose not to retain”; it is described as “destruction of evidence” and “obstruction of justice.”

The IRS Missing Email Scandal – Brazen Obstruction of Justice

NoisyRoom.net
Hat Tip: BB

 

In what can only be seen as a brazen, arrogant defiance of the law, the IRS not only claims the dog ate their emails, they’re not sorry to boot and screw America for even doubting the all-powerful, jack-booted enforcement arm of the Obama regime.

Some of the lamest lies I have ever heard in my entire life are coming from the forked tongues of Lois Lerner and IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. As angry as I am at Paul Ryan over illegal immigration and Obamacare, he hit it out of the park when he declared that no one believes the crap issuing from the IRS:

“This is unbelievable,” Ryan began. “I am sitting here listening to this testimony… I just, I don’t believe it. That’s your problem, nobody believes you.”

His take down of Koskinen was epic and a must see:

(Updated) Why Progressives Will Underwrite Obama’s Impeachment

Rob Cunningham USA

Obama will NOT complete his 2nd term as President.

First, for Obama’s repeated lies, coverup and abandonment of two heroic Navy Seals, leaving both to die on the Benghazi battlefield on 9/11/2012, while the liberal media openly carried his YouTube video water for eight months. During last week’s House hearings, the mainstream media was shamed and embarrassed before the entire world, exposed as being lazy, partisan and incurious. The Obama-fawning media was highlighted as being unwilling to honestly report to their fellow citizens.

Secondly, the 60-day electronic DOJ surveillance blanket thrown over the Associated Press, monitoring 100 reporter’s work and personal phone calls, has and will continue to infuriate Obama’s liberal media base. This invasive crime against our freedom of the press is an illegal abuse of power that has blown a chilly wind up Obama’s cheerleader’s skirts. Now that the media’s ox has been gored, they are outraged.

Thirdly, the IRS’s (supposed) single Cincinnati villain targeted ALL Tea Party, pro-Constitution, limited government and pro-Israeli groups since 2010, using the most powerfully destruction agency of the federal government? One single progressive individual, one person, was empowered at the IRS to target every conservative, tax-exempt group in America? This coordinated abuse of power is far worse than the first article of impeachment against Richard M. Nixon during Watergate, one ironically drafted with Hillary Clinton’s help. Ah, the karma. This IRS scandal will greatly damage ObamaCare’s implementation in 2014 because citizens will never stand for criminally abusive IRS activists entering our homes and offices to gather personally invasive questions about our intimate health history, insurance premiums and policy coverages.  Any IRS “promise” to never share, leak or abuse our personal health information with any biased, political or destructive intent – the manner in which the IRS just abused conservatives simply for being conservative, will NEVER “fly” with the public, congress or media.
