About 25 years ago, I worked for a pharmaceutical company that was switching from paper records to digital records.

I recall a PowerPoint presentation in which we were told that anything we created on a computer, no matter how trivial it seems at the time, should be considered a legal document that can never be deleted and that we could someday expect to have to explain ourselves in court under oath. So if you don't want to have to do that, don't hit the save/send button.

This was the best advice I ever received and it stuck with me.

My mantra at a previous job was "talk as if you're always being recorded."

i've worked many places with these directives on ANYTHING in writing

if you don't want to explain something in court someday never write it down, and if you have written it down assume the other side knows

I was in IT decades ago. There was a couple at work that were having an affair. The spouse found out and we were subpoenaed for their emails. It was my job to find them and sort them. I learned a lot about those two and where and how they liked to bang.

“They made no attempt to contact my lawyer, who would have made arrangements for them to have my phone if that was their wish,”

The FBI didn't "wish" to have your phone at your convenience. They seized it after obtaining a warrant.

They made no attempt to let me try to delete incriminating evidence. :(

That’s because the FBI has realized that these ARE criminals who have a history of destroying evidence. From this point on, everything should be a surprise.

They didn’t even give me time to do a random factory reset of the phone.

Fair bet he’s also good with the law exercising these warrants on folks he doesn’t usually like. But on him? Oh hell no.

Step #1. Stop calling politicians "leaders". Only refer to them as elected officials.

Also,

"They made no attempt to contact my lawyer, who would have made arrangements for them to have my phone if that was their wish,”

Yeah, um, they, um, maybe didn't want to give you an opportunity to destroy what they were searching for...

That's the tax payers' phone - not his.
