    FBI lied about phones/encyption

    The FBI seems to have been caught fibbing again on the topic of encrypted phones. FBI director Christopher Wray estimated in December that it had almost 7,800 phones from 2017 alone that investigators were unable to access.
    Internal records cited by sources put the actual number of encrypted phones at perhaps 1,200 but perhaps as many as 2,000, and the FBI told the paper in a statement that "initial assessment is that programming errors resulted in significant over-counting of mobile devices reported."
    The idea that no one thought to check for duplicates before giving a number to the director for testimony in Congress suggests either conspiracy or gross incompetence.

    The latter seems more likely after a report by the Office of the Inspector General that found the FBI had failed to utilize its own resources to access locked phones, instead suing Apple and then hastily withdrawing the case when its basis (a locked phone from a terror attack) was removed. It seems to have chosen to downplay or ignore its own capabilities in order to pursue the narrative that widespread encryption is dangerous without a backdoor for law enforcement.

    It shouldn't surprise anyone that the FBI is corrupt. We've only been watching it play out in every single news outlet every single day for the last year and a half.

    going back to the Clinton Administration ... corruption at the IRS

    however IMHO career employees in Gov. in DC are By and large Progressive in nature [look at all the crap that went in at the EPA]

    and at this point in time, see it as their JOB 'RESIST' any Policy or Person, they do not agree with ... sabotaging the process wherever possible


    see Strzok-Page Texts for proof of this
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.
