There are always little nuggets that tell us things that go far beyond the criminal conduct of the indicted party.
They’re little treasures.
In my first read of the full indictment, two jumped out...
If true, a whole lot of Trump folk are going to have unpleasant days ahead.
It’s like Gotti running his mouth off in a small apartment in the building next to the Ravenite.
It’s no shock that Mueller has WhatsApp msgs since the NSA can know what color underwear you’re wearing if they really want...
Interesting that it clearly wasn’t evidence seized from Stone though.
...or was it?
Which brings us to Easter egg #2.
Mueller apparently knew not only what msgs Stone sent but which ones were STILL ON HIS PHONE.
Without his knowing it, the FBI cloned his phone while he was there.
They had a no-serve warrant and basically lifted a copy of his phone, as I understand it.
If he did, perhaps they did the same here. That would probably cause every other Trumpie who walked into Mueller’s offices pucker a bit.
Regardless of how Mueller knows what he is alleging here, he knows what dirty msgs ppl sent, deleted and still have.
Witnesses and suspects who walked into Mueller’s office for interviews were inevitably asked about their communications with the Trump Admin.
They inevitably lied and Mueller likely knew what messages they lied about and whether they still had them.
Bottom-line: Mueller telegraphed that he has electronic comms from his targets across even encrypted channels.
Whatever they said, he heard.
They spoke carelessly over channels they thought were secure. They lied about those comms.
Mueller knows and is dropping indictments one by one.
He’s rolling ‘em up. Delicious.
