CYBER obtained a forensic extraction of the iPhone previously assigned to Strzok; however. this iPhone had been reset to factory settings and was reconfigured for the new user to whom the device was issued. It did not contain data related to Strzok's use of the device. SCO's Records Officer told the IGO 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.
As noted on page 395 of the OIG's June 2018 report entitled, "A Review of Various Actions by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice in Advance of the 2016 Election," www.justice.gov... file/l07199J/download, the Department, unlike the FBI, does not have an automated system that seeks to retain text messages, and the service provider only retains such messages for 5 to 7 days.

Mother Jones is left bias, however they are good on reporting facts. The federalist is extreme right with poor reporting of facts.
The story I linked can been be verified by other sources.

A few things first. When the judge ripped into Flynn, essentially telling him he sold out his country and accused him of being engaged in treasonous activity, he had his information wrong. The judge was under the assumption Flynn did all of what he was accused of while serving as NSA while also continuing to be an unregistered foreign agent (FARA). He ended his FARA before he accepted the position of NSA. The judge apologized to him in open court when he received the correct information.
You forgot the tonnage of redactions in Flynns Plea Agreement.
The Judge responsible for evaluating Flynn's misdeeds has been working on this case for months.
He did not get his facts wrong.
He slipped up and was referencing something yet undisclosed in the redactions, namely that Flynn was an unregistered agent of a foreign government AFTER inauguration.
That is more probable than the judge responsible for knowing Flynn's case intimately somehow forgot a principle charge.

Why if Mueller sent 4 innocent guys to prison for life this guy ever allowed in a court of law except to be as a defendant? I knew he was slimy but damn. Who ever in charge of doj right now needs to end his investigation and immediately potus needs to pardon all people he prosecuted.

Are you ok with mueller deleting strzok and pages phone data?
The OIG investigation determined that. although the FBI uses an automated application to wirelessly collect text messages sent to or from FBI-issued mobile devices where it is retained by ESOC. Neither the FBI nor the DOJ currently has a policy directive mandating collection and preservation of text messages by ESOC and that the identification and retention of substantive electronic communications is left to the judgment of the individual employee. FBI Policy 0423D guides employees regarding what communications are considered "substantive" and also informs employees that they must not use personal electronic devices to communicate about cases. The OIG noted, however, that FBI policy informs its employees to contact ESOC if they need to access electronic communications that the individual employee has not preserved, such as text messages and email messages, thus identifying ESOC as the repository for these types of communications.
The investigation also determined that the FBI replaced the S5 devices with S7 and S9 devices as part of a regular technical refresh and to address issues with the FBl's text message collection tool. As of November 15, 2018, FBI acknowledged that it continued to experience failure of the collection tool in approximately I 0 percent of the mobile devices then in service. The OIG investigation determined that the FBl's collection tool was not only failing to collect any data on certain phones during particular periods of time, it also does not appear that it was collecting all text messages even when it was generally functioning to collect text messages.
The OIG forensically recovered thousands of text messages from FBI mobile devices issued to Strzok and Page through its multiple extraction efforts. Approximately 9,311 text messages were recovered from Strzok's S5 during the collection tool failure period. Approximately I 0, 760 text messages were recovered from Page's S5 during the collection tool failure period. The OIG's forensic recovery efforts also identified additional relevant text messages from outside the collection tool failure period.
Page resigned from the FBI on May 4, 2018. Strzok's employment was terminated by the FBI on August I 0, 2018.
Separate from this report, the OIG will be submitting procedural reform recommendations to the FBI relating to retention of electronic communications.
In view of the content of many of the text messages between Strzok and Page, the OIG also asked the Special Counsel's Office (SCO) to provide to the OIG the DOJ issued iPhones that had been assigned to Strzok and Page during their respective assignments to the SCO. Stnok and Page had each returned their DOJ-issued iPhones six months earlier when their assignments to the SCO had ended. The OIG was told that the DOJ issued iPhone previously assigned to Strzok had been re-issued to another FBI agent following Strzok's departure from the SCO. The SCO obtained the iPhone from that individual and provided it to the OIG. CYB ER obtained a forensic extraction of the iPhone previously assigned to Strzok; however. this iPhone had been reset to factory settings and was reconfigured for the new user to whom the device was issued. It did not contain data related to Strzok's use of the device. 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.
