Special Counsel Robert Mueller was caught up in a huge coverup, and we did not even think that he would go this far.
The Office of the Special Counsel deleted every single message of fired FBI agent Peter Strzok’s phone before handing it in the Department of Justice Office. This was reported in a release of the federal watchdog.
The Justice Department’s inspector general reported that thousands of text messages were deleted from Strzok’s phone. Most of these messages were exchanged between him and FBI attorney Lisa Page.
“SCO’s Records Officer told the OIG that as part of the office’s records retention procedure, the officer reviewed Strzok’s DOJ issued iPhone after he returned it to the SCO and determined it contained no substantive text messages,” the report reads.
Conservative Review national security reporter Jordan Schnachtel found that Strzok’s iPhone was “reset to factory settings.” Of course, all the data was missing.
So Mueller's team wiped ALL of the data off of Peter Strzok's iPhone after determining "it contained no substantive text messages." Given what we know about Strzok, this smells like quite the coverup. Time for Congress to step in?https://t.co/mOgpBbDVO4 pic.twitter.com/9w2mEPK64C

The federal watchdog found “no discernible patterns” of the content of the deleted messages.
Strzok and Page had a testimony before the Congress, and he admitted that he did not turn over all of his communications with Page to the OIG from his iPhone.
Strzok told House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte that he knew what messages on his phone were “relevant to FBI business” that the OIG could check up.
The Bureau investigated whether Hillary Clinton used her private email server during her time in office to sent sensitive material. Strzok is a senior counterintelligence agent, and he was assigned to this case. Page and Strzok had a romance at the time. He was fired after the special counsel found the messages between him and Page.
What about all the missing messages? There is something behind the whole case, but we know that Hillary would never expose herself. She never has and never will
