Robert Mueller exploited cellphone GPS to track Trump associates
WASHINGTON TIMES ^ | 6/8/2019 | rowan scarborough

Posted on 06/10/2019 6:35:32 PM PDT by bitt

Robert Mueller says he was able to pinpoint security company executive Erik Prince’s precise location for several hours in January 2017 by matching his mobile phone signal to a cell site near Trump Tower in New York City.

The special counsel’s report discloses the use of this investigative technique, by which police determine a suspect’s location via a cellphone’s GPS signal.

The Prince narrative is one instance in unredacted sections of the report in which Mr. Mueller’s team explicitly discloses cellphone tracking. It raises the question of whether the FBI applied the process to other investigative subjects — a phone’s GPS signal can disclose its exact location within a few feet. One of the first requests the FBI makes when confronting subjects is to ask for their electronic devices.

The fact Mr. Mueller could pinpoint Mr. Prince’s exact whereabouts suggest he used GPS readouts, which prosecutors can subpoena from cellular service providers.

Like this is news.

American Law Enforcement at the State, City and local level have been reported Nation-wide to have utilized phony cell tower equipment to gain access to your communications.

Now the Big Boys like the FBI take it a step further. The track your phone, the vehicles you ride in, the people with whom you associate for sit next to on the subway (think spy games). They look for chip on the credit cards.

So you go down to the local bar and sit with some girls all night, or maybe the girls are in the booth behind you or a table or two over, and they link to them.... You drive over the to the local Wal-Mart for you monthly Lid from your dealer and he hands you bag as you exchange your money - they have you and your car, and a known dealer and his car and anyone else riding along; do it every month and you are a known user and they known a primary source. Just as simple as that.

The real creative stuff is when your phone and google from you laptop or table which you never log out of, follows you and FreeRepublic all over town, along with your other websites... maybe some porn. Got kids and Mueller doesn’t like you maybe they pin some child porn on the adult in the house because after all you are supposed to be the responsible one and you did pay the bills hence you own the data so to speak.

So when you decide you want off your lover, leave the phone and credit cards at home... get a nice hat, wig, glasses, and some baggy clothing and do not take a taxi or your ride if manufactured before 1998 and damn sure don’t turn on your car radio.

Ok kiddies that’s enough for today’s lesson.

Never buy a cellphone that lacks a removable battery.

Cell tower proximity and GPS are two different things.

“Never buy a cellphone that lacks a removable battery.”

Good luck with that, unless you buy only flip phones.

Umm... So, umm, yeah, GPS tells you the location. Cell tower association tells you a general area around the tower. One can come from cell phone company records, the other pretty much requires being able to read the phone’s GPS.

He can tell which cell site was most active for the phone, from cell phone company records, and is not a GPS track.

Pretty much sums it up. The data is collected, on EVERYONE OF US, big time. Pretty much anything beyond a walk around the block without your phone is tracked.

What happens to the data? No one cares, unless it’s used against leftists. As it is, 99.9999% is never looked at. But whey they want you - it’s all there for them to take you down with it.

If Republicans, Republican candidates and their staff are not using Faraday cages like above then they should be.

They should also avoid any and all Google products and services or social media for personal purposes. All communications should be with point-to-point encrypted connections with transport-layer (TLE) encryption as well.

If it's a worry, get a Faraday-type pouch/case for your cellphone:

E.g.:
