New DOJ records reveal that Andrew Weissmann, one of the lawyers appointed to Mueller’s special counsel hoax, and others stated that they “accidentally wiped” at least 15 phones that were used in the sham to frame President Donald Trump. These records were released thanks to Judicial Watch.
Newly released DOJ records show that multiple top members of Mueller's investigative team claimed to have "accidentally wiped" at least 15 (!) phones used during the anti-Trump investigation after the DOJ OIG asked for the devies to be handed over. https://t.co/VVUnfZVolm pic.twitter.com/p50PnoCBse

The process was simple: turn on each device’s airplane mode, lock them and proceed to destroy all the data by entering the wrong passcode ten times. However, they had not planned for the phones to remember the wiping actions. Hence, the files contain many entries reading:
“Employee tried to incorrectly enter password too many times, and the phone was wiped of all data.”
“During out processing conversation… [redacted] indicated she had to wipe her phone because she forgot the password. Her phone had to be wiped to be reset because the passcode provided was inaccurate and the phone was left in airplane mode.”
Even Andrew Weissmann, Robert Mueller’s right-hand man, wiped two out of the three of his Special Counsel’s phones. Then he lied saying that one was “accidentally wiped” and that he entered in the wrong password on the other two phones too many times.
Andrew Weismann wiped two of his three Special Counsel's Office phones.
He wiped one by accident.
He wiped the other by entering the wrong password too many times.
Has anyone ever wiped their phone by accident? Asking for a friend. pic.twitter.com/MFsb4kInbB

Attorney Harmeet Dhillon, a prestigious lawyer who has sued many states for their stay at home orders, had this to say:
“This is shocking. In private practice, if you had a dozen clients who did this at the same time in response to an internal investigation, you would be preparing for sanctions and hiding under your desk. But these arrogant people think they are above the law. So far, they are,” said Harmeet Dhillon.
