NEW: DOJ Records Show Weissmann, Other Mueller Henchmen Claimed to Have “Accidentally Wiped” at Least 31 Phones Used in Russia Probe

As it happens, this accident happened to Andrew Weissmann with two of his three phones.
Does this suggest that Team Mueller lawyers and investigators new they might have something to hide? Yes it does.
UPDATE 1: A fried asked me whether Weissmann and others could be in trouble over this. The short answer, of course, would have been: I don't know. But I don't usually do short answers, so I sent an email. I still don't know, but we'll probably be learning more of the facts of the situation. In the meantime:
Failure to cooperate with an OIG request for information or records is serious misconduct and may lead to disciplinary action up to and including removal.
