But His Emails! Cohen Warrants Reveal Wide Mueller Probe

Mueller got all of Michael Cohen's emails from the entire ten years he worked for Trump? Uh oh.

But his emails.

Turns out Robert Mueller's investigation started earlier and dug deeper than anyone thought.

Mueller received warrants to go after Michael Cohen's emails, Apple ICloud, and other electronic data for years prior to the 2016 election. Uh oh. CNN:

In all, the prosecutors and FBI received permission from a Washington, DC-based federal judge to execute four search warrants on Cohen's two Gmail accounts and for stored data in his Apple iCloud account in July, August and November 2017 -- long before Cohen's office was raided in April 2018 and he pleaded guilty in an illegal campaign contribution and tax prosecution led by Manhattan federal prosecutors.

Mueller also received approval on two separate occasions to track the numbers of Cohen's incoming and outgoing calls.

The revelation gives new illumination to Mueller's work throughout 2017 -- before he had brought the bulk of his open criminal cases against defendants like former national security adviser Michael Flynn and a host of Russians for interfering in the election -- and shows how extensively Mueller had tracked computer data of those close to then-candidate Trump in the early days of his presidency.

Don't forget that this is the fixer for a perp who signed paper checks to reimburse for hush money to a porn star. How sloppy do you think these geniuses were on email? Stupid Watergate, indeed.
