Which cell phone number?

His unsecured Android, or his unsecured IPhone?

Remember when Hillary used her personal Blackberry and it was being called High Treason by the ususal suspects?

At least with a Blackberry, you can't remote hack the camera, or microphone, or even Siri.

No Jay,

High treason was managing the nation's diplomacy from her unsecure closet server for the entire world's intelligence agencies to find.

High treason was managing State to benefit her private foundation's donors.

High treason was destruction of evidence to avoid complying with federal records law.

You forgot the Vince Foster murders, Pizzagate, Uraniumgate, the Seth Rich murder and 40 other made up "scandals",


It's only covfefe when Republicans do it,

Maybe you should take a trip to Portland,

Well, you have chosen treason over country, havn't you?
