Political investigations will inherently be politicized. And this is a particularly bad example of bias.
Stories in both the Washington Post and New York Times on Saturday reported that Peter Strzok, who played a key role in the original FBI investigation into the Trump-Russia matter, and then a key role in Mueller's investigation, and who earlier had played an equally critical role in the FBI's Hillary Clinton email investigation, was reassigned out of the Mueller office because of anti-Trump texts he exchanged with a top FBI lawyer, Lisa Page, with whom Strzok was having an extramarital affair. Strzok was transferred to the FBI's human resources office — an obvious demotion -- in July.
The Post reported that Strzok and Page exchanged text messages that "expressed anti-Trump sentiments and other comments that appeared to favor Clinton."
According to the Times, Strzok helped lead the Hillary investigation.
So what impact did he have on the Hillary and Trump investigations? That's the genuinely explosive question. And it's why the FBI did not want to address this. Having a biased investigator taints everything. After repeatedly stonewalling Nunes, the story was leaked to the Post and the New York Times, the favorite leakholes of the establishment bureaucracy. But even the spun version is quite damning.
And it's why the entire process is so broken.
Any investigation of the two primary political figures in an election in which almost everyone in the country was bound to have a strong opinion should have had bulletproof transparency. Instead we've had no transparency and blatant political bias.
That has to change.
The Mueller team is deeply flawed. It's filled with partisan lefties. Unless that changes, any results produced by the process will never be accepted by half the country.
