Johnson: Why did Mueller team ‘wash’ phones

Empower Wisconsin | Sept 14, 2020 

More disturbing revelations are pouring out of the corrupt Mueller “Russian collusion” investigation, and U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson wants answers. 

Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, last week sent a letter to Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz seeking information about media reports that phones used by staff on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team had their memory wiped clean. 

The Washington Times reports that Mueller staff turned in 27 government smartphones that had been wiped of all data, including the iPhone of Andrew Weissmann, a former U.S. Justice Department official and top member of Mueller’s team. Weissman is well known for his abusive investigatory tactics. 

“These reports are troubling and raise concerns about record retention and transparency,” Johnson (R-Oshkosh) wrote in his letter to the Inspector General. “Therefore, I respectfully request that your office open an investigation into this matter to determine what, why, and how information was wiped, whether any wrongdoing occurred, and who these devices belonged to.”

Johnson requested a response to his questions by Friday.
