Deleted text messages from Jan 6 found on 10 Secret Service staff phones, report says

Maybe they are not the cyber crimes experts that they think they are!

The US Secret Service has identified missing text messages in connection with the Capitol riots on the phones of 10 agency personnel, according to a report from CNN.

The federal agency is probing phones that contain metadata showing that the messages were sent and received on or around 6 January 2021, the network reported on 23 July.

An investigation followed a letter from an inspector general at the US Department of Homeland Security – first reported by The Intercept and shared by the House select committee investigating the attack on the US Capitol – finding that messages from agency personnel were missing or erased.

The Secret Service – the agency responsible for protecting the president and senior officials – told the office of the inspector general that a trove of messages was deleted as part of a “device-replacement“ programme.

Well, that’s embarrassing. I can hardly wait to find out what the Pretorian Guard were texting.

    Does this mean that they have found more than the metadata? I mean, that would be good if it’s actual missing texts.

    I bet they were either texting their resignations or their confessions.

    The CNN story they reference does not say that. It only says the Committee is targeting 10 out of 24 SS agents, not that they have found the missing messages.
