Apple Made Big Stink Over Protecting San Bernardino Terrorist’s Privacy — Readily Gave Mueller Team Manafort’s iCloud Data

San Bernardino couple Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik murdered 14 acquaintances at an annual Christmas party. The couple left another 22 injured in the Islamist attack.

Apple refused to unlock Syed Farook’s phone after the deadly terror attack — out of principle

A federal judge in February 2016 asked Apple to help the FBI unlock an iPhone belonging to Syed Farook, who was responsible for the shootings in San Bernardino in December which left 14 people dead.

Via CNBC, The judge asked Apple to provide “reasonable technical assistance” to the U.S. authorities, which would require the technology giant to overhaul the system that disables the phone after 10 unsuccessful password attempts. Once this feature kicks in, all the data on the phone is inaccessible. Apple declined to help the FBI.

But in 2017 Apple and Facebook had no problem assisting Dirty Cop Robert Mueller in his witch hunt of the Trump campaign. Apple and Facebook readily provided information from Paul Manafort’s iCloud to the special counsel of angry Democrats.


Apple and Facebook are both former clients of Mueller’s consulting firm, with the former providing Paul Manafort’s iCloud data to Mueller’s team of lawyers. Hannity read, “Two of Mueller’s former clients are cooperating with the special counsel, Facebook [and] Apple. Mueller’s former client, the paragon of privacy Apple Inc. provided the special counsel with access to Paul Manafort’s iCloud despite making a public spectacle protecting the San Bernardino terrorist’s privacy. Mueller’s former client, and another paragon of privacy Facebook, may be cooperating with the special counsel voluntarily without a subpoena according to congressional testimony from CEO Mark Zuckerberg.”
