Jim Comey Finally Has a Dastardly Criminal Who Made His Texts Unavailable

Jim Comey has been pushing for backdoors, implicitly in iPhones, for months based on the concern that a dastardly criminal might evade investigators by making texts unavailable.

He finally has a dastardly criminal he can point to: Tom Brady.

If only Jim Comey had his back doors Roger Goodell would be able to sneak in by and and find proof that Tom Brady ordered to have his balls deflated.

Update: Ut oh. In his statement the criminal in question undermines my narrative.

First, Brady suggests that the NFL got all the communications of interest from his interlocutors.

Much more interesting, he reveals he had a Samsung phone, and only got an iPhone6 with his new one.

So Brady wasn’t using iMessage without backup to hide his dastardly evidence.
