Just a few years after Apple refused to cooperate with the government investigation of terrorists who gunned down dozens of people in California, the company handed over Roger Stone’s password and information to the deep state gestapo goon squad.
That’s right. After getting on their high-horse about consumer ‘privacy’ regarding violent, terrorist murderers, the company quietly acquiesced to provide complete access to Roger Stone’s iCloud account, a man who is charged with minor, non-violent crimes.
Three years ago, Apple objected to the government request for the San Bernardino terrorist’s devices. The couple who slaughtered and injured dozens in a Christmas mass shooting were protected by the company.
The company originally claimed it would set a “set a dangerous precedent” to provide access to the terrorist communications of the evil couple.
The company told reporters:
“From the beginning, we objected to the FBI’s demand that Apple build a backdoor into the iPhone because we believed it was wrong and would set a dangerous precedent. As a result of the government’s dismissal, neither of these occurred. This case should never have been brought.”
Of course, it now appears that those were just convenient lies.
Without any fight at all, they handed over Roger Stone’s account to Mueller’s thugs. All of his iPhone passwords and every other reasonable private information wasn’t protected for a conservative, like it was for terrorists.
This is what the company said three years ago:
“If allowed to stand, the order in Apple’s case would have forced company engineers to create software to disable a phone security feature so that the FBI could try its hand at unlocking the device by cracking a numeric password. Apple quickly resisted, arguing that forcing it to create such software would violate the company’s constitutional rights and weaken privacy for users around the world.”
Many people wonder what happened to make them change their stance. Did Robert Mueller threaten the company? Americans know from experience that he will willingly create ham sandwich indictments to create news.
And, given recent court rulings concerning electronic device privacy, how are they and the special counsel getting around the law?
Roger Stone is accused of minor crimes that have nothing to do with ‘Russian collusion,’ but somehow, he is worse than two people who planned and executed people who had only shown them kindness?
The action creates many questions… but the answer, like always, is that Mueller and his team of obstructionists and fabricators can get away with lying, cheating, and destroying evidence without any repercussion.
