How Did the FBI Lose Five Months of Text
Messages Between Two Trump-Hating Employees?

Weekly Standard, by Andrew Egger

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/23/2018 4:51:00 AM

You’ve got to feel for Robert Mueller. The man overseeing the special investigation into Russian election meddling is by all accounts a non-partisan straight shooter, the model image of a public-minded civil servant. Drafted to lead politically polarizing investigation, working under the beady eyes of distrustful congressional Republicans, Mueller has striven to keep his team’s conduct as unimpeachable as possible by bringing on some of America’s sharpest legal minds to check his own work and keeping public comments to a minimum. Imagine how Mueller feels, then, to have to answer so frequently for the partisans and incompetents surrounding him. The special counsel’s biggest

Oh, BS. Mueller and his team are thugs who likely will be implicated in the take-down Trump scheme if these remaining texts can be found. For heavens´ sake, Mueller even covered up firing Strzok from months ago. The others have been too careful to get caught - yet. I don´t find that behavior the least bit that of a "straight shooter".

Mueller is hardly the straight shooter that Egger describes. If you haven´t read this stunning expose of the most famously aggressive attorney that Mueller hired, here it is:

imo, Andrew Weissmann is both evil and dangerous. He should not be trusted to wield any government power.

They are not lost. They will be provided to Congress. Remember the Lois Lerner´s e-mails that were said to be lost and then showed up. Same will happen here.

A ´server´ doesn´t lose texts between ONLY two people, it would have lost millions of them between everyone that the unit served and jeopardized many ongoing investigations. They are lying. The wireless carrier the FBI uses
probably has records of the messages. Is there no one on D>C> with I.T. capabilities to bring this farce to thee public ? D.C. stands for Den of Corruption.

It´s not hard for an insider to know how to game the system, especially when there is a sympathetic "small group" to help out.

Besides the dems have been disappearing evidence for decades. They KNOW they can get away with it. This is another part of the Russia, Russia, Russia game. It was misdirection to gave them time to "handle" the evidence against them. They were sloppy and caught flat footed by Trump´s win. They thought under Hillary, no one would care to look at any evidence. They had to scramble to clean things up.

If the DOJ and FBI were smart and serious, they would put ANYONE suspicious on paid leave and suspend ALL access to department personnel and information systems. This is very BAD stuff and deserves a big response.

I hope there is still enough evidence to convict these clowns and the judge takes the "disappeared" evidence into account. They deserve a MAXIMUM sentence.

The opening paragraph was enough for me. "Beady eyed Republicans?! Come on WS, your partisanship is showing just a touch.

But hey.. the FBI should be getting good at this "losing" or I would say hiding important incriminating evidence. This makes me furious. Sessions should fire Ray for not firing McCabe. And as for the dirty lovers, and the others in the FBI and the DOJ should be put on administrative leave until a trial. And Mueller should be shut down. Or at this point suspended, until facts show this was a calculated witch hunt against Trump.

All private corporations are required by law to keep emails pertaining to an investigation for seven years. It´s a felony to delete them.

If the government doesn´t have this same rule I would be very surprised. As usual, there are those above the law. Imagine how many late nights those people spent deleting all of those emails. The server backups have them or don´t they do that either? It´s time for a major housecleaning.

Get the people who are known to have been in the thick of this out of government offices. With their track record they should have been escorted out the door immediately when this all came to light. Put them on UNPAID leave until the case can be built, but get them out of the building. There’s no telling the mischief they are up to. The real world does not work this way. When you have been found to be guilty of wrongdoing against the company, you’re outta there. Why is the government so darn paralyzed and unable to make the most common sense decisions?

From the article:

"...citing “misconfiguration issues related to rollouts, provisioning, and software upgrades that conflicted with the FBI’s collection capabilities.”

My translation of this is:

The problem was we didn´t incorporate the native object-relational mapping, which is what was attracting the distributed ledgers. Then we had to setacetus on the system´s left-hand frannistan. That´s what did it."

I´ve known and worked with some very high powered investigators. I´ve done some pretty good investigations myself. Here is one thing they will all tell you right up front; There is no such thing as a convenient coincidence. In fact, almost none of the investigators I have known believe in coincidences at all.

Now, why is that? We all know there really are strange coincidences. But, when there is a progression in any crime, investigators are highly suspicious when two really odd ball things happen at the same time in it. To them it is like two meteorites crashing at the same time into the same spot. Sure, it "can" happen. It just does not happen.

In this situation, the FBI, as far as I know, has never lost important communication this way. They are absolute experts at this end of the game- such a flub is highly unlikely. So, what are the chances such an unlikely flub would happen exactly at the most critical timing in this fiasco of a crime? See? Not possible. Thus any investigator will operate from the angle that it was deliberate.

#23 has it right. Define the difference between "deleted" and "lost." The former implies INTENT, doesn´t it?
And therein ALWAYS lies the rub.
Q: Did you intentionally delete those files?
A: No, I didn´t intentionally delete those files, but I do agree they were lost.
Try proving INTENT. Nearly impossible and everyone knows it. You can´t prove what was going on in someone´s head at any given moment. You can say you know and they can say you´re wrong. Good luck with that.

There are times when losing or destroying something incriminating is the only choice one has. It doesn´t matter how incompetent or guilty it makes you look.....the alternative of the truth being known is far far worse. Hillary made that choice on the wiped server. Murderers destroy evidence by burning down a house all the time.

It is impossible to lose text messages between just 2 individuals due to “misconfiguration issues related to rollouts, provisioning, and software upgrades that conflicted with the FBI’s collection capabilities.”. If that actually occurred, if would have effected far more information than just 400 text messages. That calls into question everything else that resided in the FBI´s database. If I were a defense attorney defending a client being charged by the FBI, I would be doing high fives right now, because they have just admitted on record that there are serious flaws in their handling of evidence.

#25, That was my thought also. Better for a country to not believe you than a judge and jury. These guys would have never pulled out the tired old excuse of losing the texts. They had to get rid of the info because it is way more damaging to them than losing reputations.

I am sure that if you asked a skilled IT tech how to make your phone fail to interface properly with the central system, he could quickly figure a way to have your version of software be magically incompatible with the system, and not report any problems.

I want to know: How many other FBI phones did this at the same time?

SO MANY good responses!

----------------------------

From the (Biased) article:
"by all accounts a non-partisan straight shooter, the model image of a public-minded civil servant"..... "Mueller has striven to keep his team’s conduct as unimpeachable as possible by bringing on some of America’s sharpest legal minds to check his own work"

Yeah, and from what I have read, EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM was a HILDEBEAST DONOR.

We should have been more suspicious of Mueller when he was first suggested as special council, when the crooked media were singing his praises. The FIX was in, even then..... and the Media KNEW it.
Mueller and Comey go WAY back together.
I have also read that all of this bunch AND Rosenstien were up to their eyeballs in the ´Uranium One´ crooked deal, so Ros selected Mueller to help keep THAT hidden also.

Those text messages were not ´lost´, they were destroyed, as best as the perps could do.
The ´Rats have done this over and over..... HildeBeast and the Rose Law Firm, Lois Lerner & Co. in the ´IRS Tea Party Targeting´ scandal, and several other times that I don´t right now recall.

Seems to me that the HildeBeast & team are doing their best to ´Run Out the Clock´ on her illegal activites as Sec. of State.
Five Years is the magic number, as I understand.


Over on Conservative Treehouse, the writer ´Sundance´ explained one day that all these ´FISA Warrents´ and ´702 files´ are not asking permission to listen in in REAL TIME, they are asking permission to QUERY the NSA DATABASE of EXISTING RECORDS- texts, emails, ´phone calls, etc.

If he is correct on this, it´s
Time for the NSA to COUGH IT UP!
.... oh and ALL of HildeBeast´s 33,000 ´Lost´ emails too!

Fake excuses. The service provider for those phones and text messsges are stored in their system. Sessions can order a search warrant or subpoena or what ever legal request is needed for them to be made available.

Another dopey article from the never Trumpers at the Weekly Standard. Another reason we do no longer subscribe.

Mueller non-partisan? Unimpeachable staff? I was the number two person in a truly non-partisan government agency. I know what one looks likes and operates and Mueller´s team ain´t it and never was.

That said, if this loss of Strook/Struck and Lil´ Lisa´s emails was due to a computer glitch or a misconfiguration or certainly a roll out issue, Strook/Struck and Lil´ Lisa wouldn´t be the only two people at the agency to be affected. There would have been many, many more people and data affected. I´m sure if this was a legitimate glitch, the FBI would have said something like "staff including the director lost data during that period, not just Lil´ Lisa and Strook/Struck." But, no such statement every was issued. If it did, I missed it.

Mueller is a partisan hack, whose much vaulted reputation is being shredded. Good bye Bobby.

During last month’s State of the Union address, President Trump called on Congress to end the automatic budget caps enacted in 2013, which have significantly limited the expansion of defense spending. In a rare show of political support, the chiefs of staff of each armed-service branch cheered the president’s call. And yet, unmentioned in the House chamber—and unnoticed by most viewers—was the fact that trillions of dollars meant to support American troops have been spent for purposes unknown even to our elected representatives. On September 10, 2001, then U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld disclosed that his department was unable to account

American government is supposed to look and sound like George Washington. What it actually looks and sounds like is Henry Hill from Goodfellas: bad suit, hand out, intoning the eternal mantra: “F*** you, pay me.” American government mostly works by interposition, standing between us, the free people at whose sufferance it exists, and the things we want to do. Want to drive a car? “F*** you, pay me.” Own a home? “F*** you, pay me.” Want to build an extension on that home? “F*** you, pay me.” Got a job? “F*** you, pay me.” Business good? “F*** you, pay me.” Business

Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters attended a Nation of Islam convention where the hate group’s leader, Louis Farrakhan, defended Palestinian suicide bombers. The convention, which took place in California in 2002, is just the latest tie to emerge between Democrats and the Nation of Islam, a black nationalist group known for being viciously anti-Semitic. “We have Maxine Waters here,” Farrakhan told the convention audience, gesturing to the seats behind him, “our great congresswoman from this area.” The audience cheered Waters’ name. Later in his speech, Farrakhan excused Palestinian suicide bombers and defended Iran for arming Palestinian terrorists. Farrakhan criticized the

As usual, it seemed to come out of nowhere. And, as usual, it didn’t. The murderer who took the lives of 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Fla., was on everybody’s radar, from the school authorities to the local police to the FBI, which failed to follow its own protocols when a person close to the future killer called to warn the bureau that he was contemplating a school massacre. Everybody knew, nobody did anything. What should be done? Gun control, the Left says, always, offering ideas that range from the trivial to the patently unconstitutional. Whatever the

After 18 months of Russia, Russia, Russia, we finally meet a cast of real Russians. But par for the convoluted course, they were pretending to be Americans. The indictments obtained by special counsel Robert Mueller on Vladimir Putin’s attempts to create discord in the 2016 election and eventually support Donald Trump are important both for what they say and what they don’t say. They offer huge victories for Trump — and thus more defeats for Hillary Clinton — but they don’t close the books on everything about 2016. The very good news for the president is that the indictments are firm in saying

President Donald Trump’s immigration hard-liners proved Thursday it is possible to win even when the outcome of a battle is, on paper, a draw. An immigration overhaul amendment backed by the administration received fewer votes Thursday than three other Senate proposals that also failed to pass the Senate. But the White House emerged from that chamber’s underwhelming and unproductive floor debate in strong shape for future fights on the issue. At first glance, the vote results suggest the White House was the big loser Thursday. After all, a Senate immigration measure it endorsed got the fewest ‘aye’ votes — 39 — with

In the coming days, we will hear a familiar profile about the Broward County school shooter. (No, I will not name him, for the reason below.) He was mentally deficient. He was a loner. He expressed violent tendencies. And likely, if the pattern holds, he was prescribed some kind of drugs to control his behavior. But there is also a media behavioral profile for these situations, and it is perfectly matched to the desires of a deranged person who would like to go out in a blaze of glory. Here is what the media coverage conveys to every potential shooter out there: 1.

A federal court has unsealed a filing against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in which prosecutors with the special counsel’s office accuse Manafort of conducting “a series of bank frauds,” new, uncharged allegations that come on top of the conspiracy and money laundering charges he already faces. The filing says the government has opposed a more lenient bail package for Manafort “in light of additional criminal conduct that we have learned since the Court’s initial bail determination,” and adds that the conduct in question “includes a series of bank frauds and bank fraud conspiracies.” Manafort already faces a raft of charges

Witnesses say the fight broke out very early on Friday morning between a large extended family, guests and staff members, and grew to the point where fellow passengers were “truly scared for [their]

Revelations that the FBI had been warned about Florida high school shooter Nikolaus Cruz fit an all-too-familiar pattern, in which apparent law enforcement errors have preceded mass murders. The FBI was warned about Cruz after he posted on YouTube saying he was going to become a “professional school shooter.” The agency said they couldn’t identify the user who made the threat, despite Cruz posting under his own name. Five months later, Cruz pulled the fire alarm at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and began shooting his former classmates with his AR-15. Other mass shooters and terrorists were similarly on the FBI’s radar

Rippon emerged as a fan favorite during the Olympics, loved especially for the artistic beauty of his routine, his honesty and hilarious tweets. He also made headlines for a feud with Vice President Mike Pence over the politician’s stance on gay rights. The skater took home a bronze medal in the team event for figure skating. Rippon finished in the men’s figure skating long program Friday, and although he didn’t earn a medal in that event, it was

In June, 2006, Donald Trump taped an episode of his reality-television show, “The Apprentice,” at the Playboy Mansion, in Los Angeles. Hugh Hefner, Playboy’s publisher, threw a pool party for the show’s contestants with dozens of current and former Playmates, including Karen McDougal, a slim brunette who had been named Playmate of the Year, eight years earlier. In 2001, the magazine’s readers voted her runner-up for “Playmate of the ’90s,” behind Pamela Anderson. At the time of the party, Trump had been married to the Slovenian model Melania Knauss for less than two years; their son, Barron, was a few

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has announced his return to politics, this time running for a U.S. Senate seat in Utah. In a video announcing his campaign titled "Ready to Serve," Romney hit out at the Trump administration, saying Washington was sending out a "message of exclusion" to immigrants. "Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in Washington," Romney says in the video. In a clear dig at the Trump administration´s current immigration crackdown, the former presidential candidate says: "Utah welcomes legal immigrants from around the world. Washington sends immigrants a message of exclusion. And on Utah´s Capitol

Openly gay U.S. Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy broke his thumb while practicing, but don´t cry for him, because that just he means he won´t have to suffer the agony of shaking the vice president´s hand, according to him. It seems that the openly gay U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon is not the only one openly trolling the VP as he represents the United States at the Olympics. On Twitter, Gus Kenworthy expressed joy over breaking his thumb because of one "silver lining.""Broke my thumb yesterday in practice," he tweeted. "It won´t stop me from competing (obvi) but it does prevent me

Reporter-model Becky Griffin took to Twitter on Thursday and responded to Wednesday’s mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida by insinuating that alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz wouldn’t have carried out mass murder if his mother had aborted him instead of putting him up for adoption. “Woman puts baby up for adoption, he grows up to be a violent young man who will spend the rest of his life in prison for a mass murder. Tell me more about how abortions are wrong,” Griffin wrote, in a tweet that went viral on Thursday, adding the hashtags

Lindsey Vonn didn´t have to make any excuses for her sixth-place finish in Saturday´s super-G at the 2018 Winter Olympics. TV analysts, newspaper writers, Twitter users and fans were already making them for her: Since Vonn happened to be the first skier out of the gate, she was at a tremendous disadvantage, one that proved fatal when she slipped near the end of the course, costing her precious time that would have easily won her gold. (Snip) But then Vonn went on NBC and complained about it herself. She transformed from a sympathetic figure to a poor loser in a

When I was in art school, studying pretentious subjects alongside pretentious students taught by pretentious professors, we had the privilege of learning about basic forms of visual expression, expressed at their highest levels. (snip) The recently unveiled Obama portraits are of a type that I have seen many times in my career as an artist and art historian. The poses are wooden, the compositions hackneyed, and both subjects have obviously been copied from photographs. To make up for the technical weakness of the painting´s execution, the artist relies on gimmicks to drag their image over the finish line, hoping that

San Salvador - Last week, President Trump torpedoed an immigration deal put forward by a bipartisan group of senators. The Senate responded by rejecting his own, harsher plan. By the end of the week, the immigration debate seemed deadlocked between the fate of the Dreamers and the fate of the wall. But one thing is clear: Any plan that purports to make America safer by making it harder for immigrants to obtain legal status and increasing deportations will actually do the opposite. These proposals, embraced by Mr. Trump, are the same decades-old policies that helped transform Mr. Trump’s archenemy, Mara Salvatrucha
