Mueller team asks witnesses for their phones

Mueller raised possibility of presidential subpoena in meeting with Trump’s legal team

Whoa. Looks like they’re looking for more dirt on Manafort — or Trump:

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is requesting that witnesses turn in their personal phones to inspect their encrypted messaging programs and potentially view conversations between associates linked to President Donald Trump, sources told CNBC.

Since as early as April, Mueller’s team has been asking witnesses in the Russia probe to turn over phones for agents to examine private conversations on WhatsApp, Confide, Signal and Dust, according to the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Fearing a subpoena, the witnesses have complied with the request and have given over their phones, the sources said.

While it’s unclear what Mueller has discovered, if anything, through this new request, investigators seem to be convinced that the apps could be a key to exposing conversations that weren’t previously disclosed to them.

  1. When is Mueller going to call Giuliani in to testify?

    Giuliani could be asked why he’s airing America’s dirty laundry in Israel?
    Or why he’s in Israel in the first place?

    What secret information was exchanged between you and Trump’s BFF Netanyahu?

    Do you suppose that Netanyahu has tasked Mossad with some covert action that might help him and Trump politically?
    Will the CIA assist Mossad or blow their cover?

    “God Bless America.”

  2. I so want to be subpoenaed by Mueller, just to watch the expression on his face when I surrender a discharged flip phone for inspection. I would shoot the expression on his face if the phone weren’t about three generations pre-camera.
